AICTE has released the schedule for the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) 2018. The exam will be conducted on January 21, 2018. CMAT exam is conducted for admission to management programs offered at AICTE-Approved Institutions/ University Departments/ Constituent Colleges/ Affiliated Colleges. The CMAT exam will be a three hours duration online exam which will be conducted in a single session. The registration for the exam is slated to begin in October.
In a surprising turn of events, AICTE removed the updated details about CMAT 2018 from the official website and has reverted back to the old information about CMAT 2017. A similar action was witnessed on the GPAT website as well. GPAT is Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test which is also conducted by AICTE. It is expected that AICTE will update the information about CMAT 2018 again soon.
