Top B-schools Accepting CMAT Scores

CMATCMAT, commonly known as the Common Management Aptitude Test, is an MBA entrance exam conducted by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Every year at around 50,000 MBA aspirants appear in the test. If you are a CMAT test taker, knowing the list of top B-schools accepting CMAT scores along with their cut off will not only help you in setting your goal but also prepare you for admissions once the results are declared. 

Till 2014, CMAT was conducted twice a year in February and September, but in 2015 the CMAT September 2015 exam was scrapped and AICTE announced that 2016 onwards CMAT will be conducted once a year in January. Although the mode of the exam continued to be computer based, but instead of multiple day windows, the exam is to be held in a single day and slot across the country. The exam pattern also continues to be same.
