I m really in baffled state, theres nowhere mentioned in msu, baroda s brochure about CMAT for bba admission. But one of your expert told me it is required with certain percentile. So can you pls give more information regarding CMAT, its preparations and subjects included?

Whereas admission for bba in MSU, Baroda is done through an entrance followed by an interview both of which is conducted by the college itself .
