whats think different in a CMAT and a cat

Shiksha 28th Mar, 2020


Although both the exams are for getting into Bschools in India for post graduation but there is a huge difference between the two:

  • Cat is common admission test and cmat is common management admission test
  • Cat is one of the most popular exam in india for management given by around 2 lakhs of people and cmat is given by a lesser candidates around 50k-60k.
  • Most of the bschools & iim accept cat score and around only 400+ colleges in india iccepts cmat score.
  • Cat has a higher difficulty level and cmat is a bit on the easier side.
  • Both exams are online but the exam pattern is different. Apart from quantitative ability, verbal ability and logical reasoning that are there in both the exams, cmat also an additional section for gk & current affairs.
  • There are very few top colleges through cmat and many top colleges through cat that you can target.
  • I hope this helps.

my score in cmat 32 which college is better its ghaziabad or srm ncr

Shiksha 28th Mar, 2020


ITS ghaziabad: Offers mba with fees 3.25 lacs (seats 240) & pgdm with fees 5.94 lacs (seats 180). The avg package you get is 6-7 lacs & highest went till 12-13 lacs.

SRM NCR: Offers mba with fees around 4 lacs. The avg package you can get is 4.5 lacs and highest goes till 12.5 lacs.

Its ghaziabad is better option as the ROi is better and the reviews of students are inclined towards this college.

I hope this helps.


hello. I got 91.6 percentile in CMAT exam. is there any chance to get admission in MNIT Jaipur for MBA?

Aman Raj Student Expert 27th Mar, 2020

Hello Anjali

If you consider last year cutoffs then yes you can get a call for GDPI. Getting admission is fully dependent on how to perform in your GDPI.

Last to last year the last cutoffs was around 87 so i think there is a chance for you.

All the best for your GDPI.
