Remember, this is just a small portion of the top B-schools accepting CMAT scores. There are several other top B-schools which are participating institutes for CMAT scores. 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.

whats think different in a CMAT and a cat

Shiksha 28th Mar, 2020

Hello!

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.

Shiksha 28th Mar, 2020

Hello!

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 got 85% in CMAT. I m from Rajasthan and completed graduation from gujarat. Is their any chance of FMS or MSU Baroda.

Shiksha 24th Mar, 2020

Hello!

Yes, there are chances to get fms or msu baroda for pursuing mba. The cut off as per past years are 85 and above for cmat. Fms or msu is a government college and has a less no. of seats so cut off is high for cmat. But you have decent chances to convert.

I hope this helps.
