Q: Is there any difference between MAT (Management Aptitude Test) and CMAT (Common Management Aptitude Test)?

A: Candidates appearing for Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) will have an edge over those appearing for Management Aptitude Test (MAT) in terms of number of questions to be attempted and nature of test.

CMAT will have a total of 100 questions across 4 sections (25 questions for each section) that need to be attempted over 180 minutes. This gives candidates ample time to spend on a particular question/ section. However, candidates appearing for MAT will have to attempt 200 questions across 5 sections (40 questions for each section) that need to be attempted over 150 minutes. Since CMAT will be held for the first time, candidates can use the facility of Trial Test provided by AICTE to know the nature of paper.

Besides this, CMAT will only be conducted online from 20 February 2012 to 28 February 2012 in two time slots (9.30 am to 12.30 pm & 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm). MAT, on the other hand, will be both paper based test (5 February 2012 from 10 am to 12.30 pm) and Computer based (11 February 2012 onwards) in different Time slots at specific test venues.
