Hello Aspirant,

general procedure for admission to M.Com. course is through a passageway test. The qualification for showing up in the passage test is at least 45% checks in the Bachelor's certificate. Basic Entrance Test is commonly target type and is of most extreme 100 imprints. The inquiries depend on the accompanying points:

Coherent Reasoning

Quantitative Aptitude

English Language

General Knowledge

After the passage test, understudies are shortlisted for Group Discussion and Personal Interview round. A few colleges may not lead Group Discussion. There is no base or most extreme age bar for this course by and large.

Colleges, for example, University of Delhi likewise offer direct admission to M.Com. program. Direct affirmations are offered by the legitimacy in the college degree. For the most part, understudies with a top of the line degree in B.Com. are given direct admission to the M.Com. program


I have a doubt regarding the admission into B-schools after written test.REgarding CAT exam Im good enough about procedure but in CMAT exam either should I apply to various colleges separately with CMAt score or Do I get directly calls from the colleges which accepts CMAT scores? Can I get clarity!
