All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has issued revised guidelines for admission to colleges offering PGDM - MBA courses. In the revised guidelines, colleges have been allowed to offer admission to the PGDM and MBA courses on the basis of marks scored by the candidate in a qualifying undergraduate course.
Earlier, it was mandatory to base admissions on MBA entrance exams such as CAT / MAT / MAH MBA CET / XAT etc. except for Management Quota seats reserved for direct MBA admissions. However, AICTE has been forced to take this step this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These revised guidelines will only be valid for the 2020-21 academic year.
Many 2020 MBA Entrance Exams Still Pending
The decision has been taken by the council as many MBA entrance exams have still not been conducted. This decision will allow colleges to fill any vacant seats for the said courses through the undergraduate merit. This move will also help the students who have not been able to appear for an MBA entrance exam due to the ongoing pandemic.
