CMAT is generally taken in the month of January. The registrations for CMAT begin in the month of October and end in December. Test centers for CMAT are available across all major cities of India.
Applicant must be a citizen of India. Graduates in any discipline can apply for CMAT exam. Final year students of graduate courses (10+2+3) whose result will be declared before commencement of admission for 2019-20 can also apply for CMAT 2019. However, the student needs to have minimum 50% (45% for reserved categories) in order to be eligible for the test.
Around 60,000+ students take the CMAT exam every year.
More than 1000 AICTE approved MBA and MCA programs in India accept CMAT scores.
Duration of the test is 3 hours.
As we have seen, there are four sections on the CMAT exam and there is no sectional time limit apart from the overall time limit of 3 hours.
This means you have an average 1 minute 48 seconds response time per question.
Each question on the CMAT carries 4 points irrespective of its difficulty level. If the candidate’s answer is incorrect, then he loses 1 point. However, there is no penalty for skipping questions.
All questions asked on the CMAT are of Multiple Choice format where the candidate will get four options per question and only option will be correct. You can even move back and forth across all questions in the four sections.
There is a misconception among so many students that CMAT is a test of Mathematics & English. Well, if that would have been the case, then why would AICTE name CMAT test sections Quantitative and Language Comprehension? Why go further to the extent of coining new names?
All questions that candidates find on Quantitative section are conceptually below class X. However, the level of logic and common sense tested on these questions is way higher. Similarly, the Language Comprehension section does not test your English grammar skills; it tests whether you can process mountains of drab English prose to find answers to the questions asked. It also tests logical thinking skills, critical thinking ability and sound understanding of academic vocabulary.
The fee for General / OBC candidates appearing for CMAT is INR 1400 + Bank charges as applicable; whereas for Female /SC/ST/PWD category candidates, fee is INR 700 + Bank charges as applicable.
