CMAT, commonly known as the Common Management Aptitude Test, is an MBA entrance exam conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). A total of 74,486 candidates have registered themselves for CMAT 2020. If any candidate is planning to appear in CMAT 2020, knowing the list of top B-schools accepting CMAT scores along with their cut off will not only help the candidate in setting their goal but also prepare them for admissions once the results are declared.

Till 2018, CMAT was conducted by AICTE, which was taken over and conducted by NTA from 2019. Although the mode of the exam continued to be computer-based, instead of multiple-day windows, the exam is held in a single day and slot across the country. The CMAT exam pattern also continues to be the same.
Latest: Check the CMAT 2020 analysis and expected cutoff. NTA will release the answer key of CMAT 2020 anytime soon after the exam is conducted.
Unless you know which are the participating institutes and their cut-offs, you cannot really prepare yourself for the application process of a B-school of your choice. The list of CMAT cut-offs for top B-schools accepting CMAT scores will help you apply to the suitable institutes based on their applications vis-Ã -vis their scores. The cut-offs of the top B-schools accepting CMAT scores can be defined according to three parameters, scores, ranks and percentiles.

However, the cut-offs of the top B-schools accepting CMAT scores might change according to various factors namely the number of candidates taking the exam, difficulty level of the exam to name a few.


You can check your admission possibility at CMAT participating institutes by entering your sectional and overall scores at the Careers360 CMAT Pathfinder tool.


However, there is a caveat. The cut-offs of the top B-schools accepting CMAT scores are only an indication of the quality of students the institutes look for admitting in the management programmes. Apart from the cutoffs there are various criteria for shortlisting and selection such as past academic records, work experience to name a few. Hence, it cannot be guaranteed that obtaining the cutoff percentile will ensure a call from the B-schools you have applied.

what is the percentile for 232 marks in cmat

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020

This year, as many as 65000 candidates appeared for CMAT. So, the score to percentile may be higher than in the past. 370-375 marks out of 400 might get 100 percentile. Your raw sectional and overall score obtained in CMAT are considered for calculating your CMAT percentile. Before calculating this percentile, CMAT score is equated and normalised for the difficulty level for the both shifts of CMAT exam. Then this raw CMAT score is converted to scaled score and then the scaled CMAT score is converted to percentile score. Considering this, if your marks are 232, your percentile might be around 70-80

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!
