Many students are often confused about how exactly they should proceed after finding out their MAT 2022 Results. Check out the details of the post-MAT Result-declaration process in this article.

What after MAT Result?

MAT May Result 2022  by AIMA will be announced a few days after the exam. Management Aptitude Test (MAT) is conducted four times a year (in February, May, September, and December) by AIMA for admission to the Tier-2 and Tier-3 MBA colleges in India. After the results are declared, you must begin preparation for MBA Admissions. AIMA sends your scores to MAT 2022 Participating Institutes automatically, and hence you can focus on preparing for the admission process, which usually includes either Group Discussion (GD) OR Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI).

The other options available would be to appear for the next season of MAT 2022 for any candidate who wants to improve their score or appear in any other MBA entrance exam in India. We help you figure out what to do next after MAT Results are declared in this article. Take a look at the details given below.

Preparing for the MBA Admission Process after MAT 2022 Result

The selection process for MBA courses not only checks your academic competence but also your overall personality and skills. Therefore, working on all areas of your profile is required if you want to get selected in a good MBA college. This is a step in which your confidence, business-related knowledge, general awareness, critical reasoning, communications, and other similar skills are going to be put to the test. Hence, it makes sense to prepare well for this test.

Step 1: Study Selection Policy of Your College

Colleges used to conduct a Group Discussion as a part of their selection rounds and many still do. However, a lot of colleges have switched to a Written Ability Test (WAT) as the first stage of selection. Some colleges may also choose to conduct both of these rounds or require candidates to appear for an Extempore. Whatever the case may be, things will get very difficult if you are not aware of the entire selection process. Take some time out to check out the MBA selection process of your college and go through all of the details including the criteria, weightage, and instructions (if any) provided by the college.

Step 2: Prepare for GD/ WAT/ PI

Once all has been figured out, candidates can move on to preparing for the GD/ WAT and PI for their college. As a candidate who has qualified for MAT 2022, you will be expected to have a decent knowledge of General Awareness. If you find that you are lacking in this area, this will be the right time to brush up on your skills. During the selection process, you may be asked to talk on any topic ranging from abstract to current affairs, and having a good general awareness will be a life-saving skill at that time. Given below are some of our tips to follow when preparing for GD/ WAT and PI.

  • When preparing for GD, practice in groups and try to understand every aspect of any topic you pick up.

  • Read newspapers and magazines daily to stay up to date on hot topics. You can also download current affairs or news apps on your phone to do the same.

  • You can take notes of any important events and news for easy revisions later on.

  • Write an essay every day on any random topic that you find interesting. It will brush up your writing skills.

  • Go through your resume and prepare answers for the most common questions that you think may be asked.

  • Make sure you have a solid answer to questions such as why you are choosing MBA etc.
