    CMAT Registration Dates 2020

    CMAT Registration began on November 1, 2019 and will come to a close in the beginning of December. Many individuals who appear for the CMAT exam also give other management exams such as MAT, XAT or CAT. It is generally known that on a difficulty level, CMAT is comparatively easier than CAT, both in terms of structure and questions. This has been attested by various previous CMAT Toppers such as Saras Suhane and Kshitij Madan who have found their CAT preparation to be helpful in the outcome of their CMAT results . Since CAT is conducted mid-november and CMAT is scheduled to be held on January 28, 2020, most candidates focus on their CMAT preparation mainly in the months of November, December and January.  Check CAT vs CMAT
