To be eligible to apply for MICAT, candidates must have valid scores of at least one of the national level tests namely, CAT 2016, XAT 2017 and GMAT (2015 onwards).

MICAT is a Computer Based Test (CBT) and will be conducted twice for selection of PGDM-C 2017-2019 batch. In the test, MICA will assess candidates based on 6 sections: Psychometric (P), Verbal ability (VA), Quantitative ability (QA), General awareness (GA), Divergent-Convergent Reasoning (DCR) and Descriptive Test (DT). MICAT will be held across 27 cities, which is increased compared to last year’s 14 test cities.
