One of the national-level management entrance exams conducted for admission to some of the top B-Schools in India, the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) is a popular choice of management aspirants in India. With over 1000 MBA colleges in India using CMAT scores for shortlisting of students, CMAT score is one of the most widely accepted exam scores for admission to the courses of Master of Business Administration (MBA), Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) and Postgraduate Programme in Management (PGPM).
CMAT 2021 Score Required for Top Colleges
While CMAT scores can be used for admission to some of the top B-Schools in India, the CMAT cutoff percentile for these schools is usually above 90 percentile.
Even if a candidate gets a 90+ or 80+ percentile in the CMAT exams, admission to the top management colleges cannot be guaranteed as intense competition for MBA seats in India increases the actual CMAT score required for admission to over 99 percentile in many cases.
Candidates interested in getting into these colleges must have a clear idea of the MBA admission process and selection criteria followed by these colleges to ensure that they are able to take proper leverage of their overall profile.
