MAT 2022 exam is scheduled from September 11 to 25, 2022 in three testing modes - as Internet Based Test (IBT), Computer Based MAT and Paper Based MAT. Both CBT and PBT MAT exams will be conducted twice in September 2022. A pass in graduation or in final year of bachelor's degree is the minimum MAT 2022 eligibility criteria to appear in Sep MAT 2022.

 

To appear for MAT exam 2022 in September, you must have obtained recognized bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years duration or equivalent in any discipline. Another key point in MAT eligibility criteria is that 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 MAT eligibility 2022 criteria to appear in MAT exam. AIMA has not changed the MAT 2022 eligibility criteria for the MAT exam being held in September 2022 and as such the MAT eligibility 2022 for Sep MAT exam remains unchanged. However, you have to check the MAT 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 releases the MAT eligibility criteria and MAT exam schedule for each MAT exam.

MAT Eligibility 2022: Completed Vs Final Year of Bachelor’s Degree
According to AIMA, Graduates in any discipline can apply for MAT 2022 exam. Those who are in their final year of graduation can also apply. It implies that a candidate is eligible to appear in MAT 2022 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 2022 exam. If shortlisted by the B-school on the basis of MAT 2022 September exam score, such candidates will be allowed to join the program provisionally. These provisionally admitted candidates must submit a certificate from the Principal/ Registrar of the College/Institute stating that the candidate has completed all the requirements for obtaining the bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification on the date of the issue of the certificate.

 

Any B-School - National or International - can consider MAT Score eligibility as an admission input based on the Score Cards issued to the candidates.
