The stepping stone to a career in management, belling the CAT is one of the major requisites for the thousands of management aspirants in India.

The results of the common admission test 2011 will be out on January 11. Close to 1.85 lakh students took the CAT, the most being from New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune.

Male students formed the majority-close to 70%-of those who took the CAT. The test had two sections instead of three earlier and students were given 70 minutes to answer each of them.

Once the results are out on the CAT website, the Indian institute of management will announce the dates for the next rounds of admission.

NAGPUR: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has announced the dates for the first ever common entrance test for management courses in the country.

Officially announced  as Common Management Admission Test (CMAT), it will be an online test to be held twice daily over a period of nine days. Students can appear for the exam on any day from February 20-28.

The registration for the CMAT will start on December 9 and end a month later. Students are required to register online at and create a user ID first, following which a password will be generated.

Then after logging into their account they can proceed for payment in either the online or offline mode. For online mode, students can use their credit or debit cards and complete the entire process. The hall ticket can be downloaded from the website from January 30 onwards.

For offline method, the students will have pay cash at any branch of the State Bank of India against the online generated challan. Cash can be deposited only 24 hours after generating the online challan.

Under the current system it is important for students to register as early as possible. That's because the exam seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. With only four exam centers in Maharashtra (Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabad and Nagpur) students will have to ensure that they do not miss out on a seat.

The three-hour long CMAT will be held twice daily, once in the morning starting at 9am and the other starting at 2.30pm.

However, the CMAT-2012 will not be mandatory as the AICTE wants to give every stakeholder enough time to ease into the new format. Lalit Khullar, director at Tirpude College of Management Studies and Research, said, "For the 2012-13 academic session every institution will have the option of using the CMAT as their entrance eligibility criteria. Because now we have other exams as well including the states own entrance exam. From 2013, all of this is proposed to be abolished and only CMAT will be there. We will follow whatever decision the state's Directorate of Technical Education takes regarding this for 2013."

The AICTE will be holding the CMAT for about four lakh management seats across the country. The AICTE has now urged every state government to register online for opting to use CMAT-2012 scores for admissions for academic year 2012-13.

Based on CAT model, CMAT will curb stress

The All India Council for Technical Education ( AICTE) has decided to conduct its single entrance test for the MBA programmes next February.
