The KMAT exam is going to be held on 29th July, 2018. The exam is conducted by Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges Association (KPPGCA). Once the written examination is over, each of the participating institutes will announce the list of shortlisted candidates for further rounds of selection process. The selection process of KMAT 2018 is done for students who are willing to pursue Postgraduate Programmes in Management from Karnataka.
The selection process will start after the release of KMAT 2018 result, which is expected to be declared on 5th August, 2018. Thereafter, the selection process will take place based on the minimum cut off marks obtained by candidates as set by the conducting body.
KMAT 2018: Selection Procedure Analysis
According to Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges Association, KMAT 2018 doesn’t include counselling round, and the selection procedure is divided into two parts. The first is the KMAT 2018 exam followed by KMAT accepting B-schools that select candidates based on the set cut-off marks. This means that every B-school accepting KMAT score will have a different cut-off range, and candidates have to apply separately to each B-school.
Subsequently, candidates need to go through and clear the Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds to get admission in of the colleges that accept KMAT 2018 score. However, not all B-schools will conduct GD/PI rounds as some might ask candidates to take written ability or essay writing test. It is important to note that b-schools accepting KMAT score also look into candidate’s academic records along-with past work experience for final selection process.
KMAT 2018 will be conducted for admission to Postgraduate Programmes in MBA, MCA and PGDM in Karnataka covering more than thousand seats. In addition, the KMAT 2018 score will be accepted by over 170 AICTE approved Universities and B-schools in Karnataka.
