cmat accepts black and white admit card?

shubham gautam 28th Jan, 2020

Hey Pritha,

Yes, you can go in exam hall with a black and white admit card. since, It is nowhere mentioned that you have to take a coloured or black & white print out of the CMAT Admit Card. If you are taking black and white print make sure your details and images are clearly visible on the admit card in order to avoid problems during verification at the exam center. Although, it's always advised to carry coloured admit card, this will make your verification easy.

Hope this helps!

Hello Shyam,

No on screen calculator available in CMAT exam, use of calculator is prohibited in CMAT. Rough sheets are available for doing the calculation.

You should practice the problems without calculator which will help you in doing calculation mentally.

Don't carry anything which is prohibited like smart watches etc.

what is the cutoff of cmat that is required for IMT nagpur and Hyderabad?

Sampriti Student Expert 26th Jan, 2020
The expected cutoff for IMT Nagpur this year is 80 percentile in CMAT and that for the Hyderabad campus is nearly 150 scores which turns out to be nearly 70-75 percentile. The Institute considers only the overall scores or percentile.

But you must try to score as many as possible as the competition there is generally very tough. Students having more than 90 percentile also apply to the college and appear for the further section rounds. The selection process of IMT Nagpur, Hyderabad and Dubai campuses takes place together and based on your performance you'll be allotted a campus.

The selection process consists of
  • GE, i.e. Group Exercise where they'll form teams and you'll have to perform certain activities and through this they want to check your leadership skills.
  • Personal Interview where they'll ask you general questions about yourself, why do you want to join IMT and will ask you about your feedback on the group exercise.

All the very best
