Table of Contents

Its is a worrisome delay in the issuance of the Admit Card for the CMAT exam that took place on January 17, 2016. The exam was conducted by the AICTE and to date there is no information as to when AICTE would be issuing the Admit cards. In another development, the Admit card icon has been withdrawn from the website of AICTE and instead there is a sticker that says “The date for download of Admit Card will be intimated shortly” but there is no set timeframe as such.

The AICTE was supposed to enable the Admit Card for CMAT 2016 on January 5th, 2016 onwards that has not been done. This peculiar situation has created panic among the aspirants and has cast doubts on the ability of the AICTE to be able to efficiently convene its maiden yearly CMAT 2016.

CMAT 2020 was conducted on January 28 in a single-window test session. Post CMAT exam, students will want Paper Analysis of CMAT 2020, along with the CMAT Rank Predictor. CMAT Result & cut-off is expected in the first week of February and basis that students can get information on the B-schools in India accepting CMAT 2020 scores.

Many firsts in CMAT 2016

For the first time, the test would be taken only once in a year rather than twice as earlier. There are some genuine fears in the minds of the test takers that whether it would be a glitch-free online test or not.

A yearly exercise from now onwards

Earlier the CMAT was a twice a year exam for admission to various MBA/PGDM courses at the AICTE approved B-Schools. The first CMAT used to be held in the month of September and the second CMAT in the month of February. But from 2016 onwards there would be only one CMAT.

One day one session

Till February 2015 CMAT used to be a 4 day 8 session exam. But now it would be a one day one session exam. The major worry of the candidates is that earlier the rush of the CMAT takers was divided in different sessions on different days and now the AICTE would have to cope with rush in just one session. Whether or not the AICTE would be able to do it is what is bothering the candidates.

CMAT 2016 would be a National Level Common Management Admission Test that would select suitable candidates for the management programmes for the session 2016-17.

It is important to note that no hardcopy of the Admit cards would be sent to the registered address of the candidates by the AICTE. You would have to take a print out of the CMAT 2016 Admit Card from your registered email and carry it to the test centre.

CMAT 2016 was a computer-based test (CBT) of 3 hours duration and was held on a single day and single session on January 17, 2016 from 9.30 AM to 12.30 AM in 62 cities across the nation.
