Management Aptitude Test
, popularly known as MAT among the MBA aspirants is one of the most popular MBA entrance exams of India today. Conducted by All India Management Association (AIMA), the exam is conducted four times a year in the months of February, May, September and December. The objective of conducting MAT four times a year is to give the MBA aspirant more chance to improve their scores and better their chance in admission for a particular academic year instead of waiting for one more year. Started as a paper pencil based test, MAT gradually developed to a computer based test as well. But unlike CAT, which is now conducted only in the computer based format, MAT is conducted in both paper pencil based format as well as the computer based format. From the year 2009, MAT introduced its computer based format.
