In order to be able to participate in the MAT selection process, the first step for a student is to appear for the national-level test. Following the entrance exam, the MAT results are published on the AIMA's official website, basis which students are shortlisted for further admission rounds. The shortlisted candidates are called by the participating institutes where they had applied for admission. They have to follow the Selection Procedure of the institutes, which may involve either two or all three following steps:
While some of the Participating Institutes that Accept MAT Scores may conduct only two rounds of the admission process, some might conduct all the three rounds. An increasing number of institutes that accept MAT scores have observed it is easy to judge a candidate's writing skills and thought process through WAT. The Written Ability Test (WAT) is being given preference over GD to ensure that all candidates are at the same level playing field and that soft-spoken candidates also get a fair chance.
While the selection process steps remain the same, the number of steps depend on each of the MAT participating institute. The final admission list of the institute is prepared based on how the candidate performs in the various selection rounds.
AIMA conducts MAT four times a year - in the months of February, May, September and December.
