CMAT 2021 exam is likely to be held in the last week of March or early April. The three-hour computer-based test is held in a single session to evaluate candidates on the basis of logical reasoning, quantitative aptitude, language comprehension and general awareness.

The entrance exam was initially due to be held in February but was postponed and the new date will be intimated soon on the website of NTA.

“CMAT-2021 Entrance Examination has been postponed, as AICTE has now proposed change in the examination pattern having an additional (optional) section for the Entrance Examination to be held in 2021 for candidates interested in Innovation and Entrepreneurship,” NTA had earlier said.

About CMAT 2021

The Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) is a national-level entrance examination for admission to management programmes in the country.

After the declaration of the CMAT results, candidates must apply separately to the desired CMAT-2021 participating Institutions with the CMAT 2021 score. Then each participating Institution will release their respective cut-off CMAT scores which a candidate should meet to get qualified for admission to that particular Institution.

Once qualified, the candidate will have to comply with the selection procedure of that particular Institution, which may comprise Group Discussion and Personal Interview. The final selection of the candidate will be based on the candidate’s performance in the last two stages.
