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.

Candidates that are planning to pay through CASH, need to obtain a SBI Bank account and fill the requirements for a CHALLAN. Afterwards, they need to print out three copies of the challan and take the required cash the next day to the bank to process the challan. The bank will issue a journal number, which is termed as an acknowledgment of the reciept and give it back to the candidate. The payment will be processed in the next 48 hours and after it has been processed, the candidate will recieve a confirmation on their email as well as on their registered phone number.
Note- If the fee is paid through credit/debit card and status is not OK, it means the transaction is canceled and the amount will, automatically, be refunded to concerned credit/debit card within 15 days. Therefore, such candidates have to pay the fee once again and ensure the OK fee status.
