MAT Exam

The MAT exam first came into existence in 1988 to help business schools screen eligible candidates for admission. Students can get admission to the prestigious management schools in India through this exam. However, the test was adopted as a national level test in 2003 by the Ministry of HRD. Every year, the All India Management Association (AIMA) conducts the MAT exam and helps students take admission to more than 600 B-schools across the country. 


Students pursuing graduation in any stream can take the MAT exam. Moreover, students who have passed the exam or are in the final year of undergraduate courses are eligible to apply for the exam. The test is conducted in both online and offline modes.
