Hello aspirant,

CMAT has remained a preferred MBA entrance exam for the candidates and with the creation of dedicated testing agency – NTA, it is expected that CMAT 2019 will offer admission chances in yet more B-schools than earlier. Here are the five important reasons that may guide you about the key benefits of taking CMAT:

  • About 500+ MBA colleges accept CMAT
  • CMAT is a moderate difficulty level exam
  • CMAT assures admission in AICTE approved MBA colleges
  • Low fees colleges
  • National MBA exam accepted by top B-schools

From SNAP and CMAT which exam is more better

Anjali Sonawat 21st Aug, 2019


If we go for a comparative analysis for SNAP Vs other MBA entrance exams like CMAT we may find that SNAP is very much similar to other national level MBA entrance exams

Apart from sectional composition of SNAP Vs other MBA entrance exams, the SNAP has recently changed its mode of exam and has now become a computer based test as against paper based test.

Though CMAT is said to be more tougher than SNAP. Go for both exams.

Hope this helps.
