Appear for MAT either Online or in the Traditional Written Test Format
What started last year ( 2009) , the Management Aptitude Test (MAT) will continue in both formats, paper-pencil as well as online in the coming years.
As per AIMA records, only 10% of MAT aspirants opt for online format which shows that a majority of MBA aspirants prefer to take the exam in paper-pencil format informed Wing Cmdr VS Bejoy, director, CMS, All-India Management Association (AIMA), New Delhi, at a national-level seminar on ‘Management Education in India – Challenges and opportunities‘ at PHD Chamber, Chandigarh recently.
He also stated that many state governments had scrapped their state-level MBA Entrance Exam and were considering MAT scores for admissions to their affiliated colleges. “While on one hand, it gives flexibility to a student to appear in either of the MAT exam held four times a year, and on the other, it reduces burden on state government to hold the entrance exam,” he added.
He further said all colleges of Haryana and Uttarakhand were considering MAT for MBA admission. Bejoy further requested the state government to consider MAT exam for admission in MBA colleges of Punjab.
