CMAT to be conducted again in May 2013


The news will bring relief to thousands of MBA aspirants seeking seats under the govt. quota


The All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will conduct the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) again in May 2013.

The decision to have another testing window of CMAT will bring relief to thousands of MBA aspirants seeking seats under the government quota.

From this year onwards, AICTE has made CMAT the only gateway to MBA admissions under government quota. Previously, it was the State-administered Postgraduate Common Entrance Test (PGCET).

The decision was taken in wake of the poor registration response from students, who were expecting the announcement of PGCET dates for admissions to MBA.

Also, the Karnataka Examinations Authority had requested AICTE to conduct another test as only 3,000 students had applied for CMAT-2.

The AICTE is conducting two CMATs — one was in September–October 2012, and another is slated for this week.

While talking to a leading daily, S.S. Mantha, chairman, AICTE, said the council has decided to grant another testing window for students who will not be able to write CMAT-2 scheduled from February 21 to 25 on request from the Karnataka government.

The registration for the second CMAT ended on January 13.

“A test will be conducted sometime around mid-May for students in Karnataka, Kerala and Uttar Pradesh as the State governments had placed requests for this. During the [AICTE] council meeting recently, we decided to give another opportunity to students in these States to write the CMAT,” he said.

The dates will be finalised and declared soon.

He clarified that this is just another opportunity, not a third test, for those who could not apply for CMAT-1 and CMAT-2.
