MAT 2019: Easy Question paper Expected 
The MAT 2019 cut offs in MBA admission are not very high although MAT 2019 question paper and MAT 2019 scoring pattern will award liberal marks to MAT exam takers. The MAT colleges cut offs especially among the top 20 MAT colleges like – BIMTECH, K J Somaiya, SIMSREE, IESMCRC, NDIM, Jaipuria, FIIB, FLAME among others are slightly higher as compared to other MBA colleges accepting MAT scores since the merit position in top 20 MAT colleges is based on little higher MAT cut offs.
