Questions related to CMAT

Showing 2808 out of 2808 Questions

I have scored 92.75 percentile in cmat. can I get the admission for MMS OR MBA in Mumabi and Pune college? what is its procedure and which college can i get?

Anuja 24th May, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

Yes you can get admission for MMS but through All India Quota

For MMS, the colleges Accept Mah MBA CET score for cap round counseling and other exams like CMAT, CAT, MAT ,etc score cards are accepted for All India Quota.

The counseling rounds are expected to start by June but due to pandemic situation they can postpone. Keep a track on official website for more information

If you wish to pursue PGDM then almost all scores are accepted at top colleges. The forms are out

I would suggest to use the college predictor tool for more information

Hope this helps


Mms admission procedure through cmat

harshita sharan Student Expert 25th May, 2020

Hello aspirant,

The admission to MMS is done on the basis of CAP rounds. If you want to go for MMS program through cmat then its compulsory for you to take mahcet exam also. However, you can apply through both the scores for MMS program. The cut off for both exams are different. The higher of both the score will be considered for admission into MMS program.

Good Luck


Should I apply to JK business school through my Mat(91.04%ile ) and CMAT(86.04%ile) or shall i go with other options?? please provide me a better idea about this so that I can take a better decision.

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 16th May, 2020


It would be better to go with MAT as you have good percentile as compared to CMAT. do check the cutoff and the process of selection. if both your score is coming in cutoff range then you can use any one.

better idea is to choose a recognized college using your best score. The main concern is what is the cutoff for MAT and CMAT. look for it and apply for admission. recognized college makes your profile look good and indicates you have done a immense effort.

Hope it helps!
