MAT 2020 exam is scheduled from November 21 to December 15 as Internet Based Test (IBT) which a candidate can take from his home  instead of taking the exam at at test centres. The Paper based MAT exam date is December 6, 2020.  A pass in graduation or in final year of bachelor's degree is the minimum eligibility criteria to appear in December MAT 2020.

 

To appear for MAT exam 2020 in December, you must have obtained recognized bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years duration or equivalent in any discipline. Those studying in their final graduation year may also apply. Besides, there is no age restriction to appear in MAT exam nor does AIMA restrict any candidate to seek MBA admission on the basis of age bar.  

 

As against other national level MBA entrance exams, AIMA has not fixed any minimum percentage of marks in graduation as the eligibility criteria to appear in MAT exam. AIMA has not changed the MAT exam eligibility criteria for the upcoming MAT exam to be held in December 2020 and as such the MAT 2020 exam eligibility for December MAT exam remains unchanged. However, you have to check the eligibility for the respective MBA colleges accepting MAT. 

 

Management Aptitude Test (MAT) is one of the most popular National level MBA entrance exams in India. More than 400 MBA colleges offer MBA admission on the basis of MAT exam score. AIMA, the MAT exam conducting body has released the MAT exam schedule for each MAT exam.

MAT Eligibility: Completed Vs Final Year of Bachelor’s Degree
According to AIMA, Graduates in any discipline can apply for MAT 2020 exam. Those who are in their final year of graduation can also apply. It implies that a candidate is eligible to appear in MAT 2020 exam, if he/she holds recognized Bachelor’s Degree with minimum 3 years duration or equivalent in any discipline.

 

Those completing their final graduation exam may also apply for MAT 2020 exam.
