MBA Entrance Tests

Introduction There are broadly three categories of MBA entrance exams in India. One which are accepted on a mass scale, one which are accepted on an institute or university level and the third category is one which is accepted on a state or region level. 1. Multiple school enterance exams: The Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by Indian Institutes of Management (IIM's) is accepted by many non-IIM institutes like Institute of Management Technology (IMT) Management Development Institute (MDI). CAT, XAT (Xaviers Aptitude Test) and MAT (Management Aptitude Test would fall under this category) Institute specific enterance exams: The Narsee Monjee Management Aptitude Test (NMAT) is an example of enterance tests conducted by institutes for admission within the school or the school network. These exams are usually conducted by private institutions and have a seperate fee for form filling to affiliated institutes if any. Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) for admission within the Symbiosis network of institutes, Mudra institute Common Enterance Test (MICAT) for Mudra Institute of Communications Ahemdabad along with TISS and IRMA enterance test are some of the prime examples of Institute specific enterance exams. 3.
