Updated On - November 2nd 2018 by SHIVANI TIWARI

MAT Selection Process: The Counselling for December 2018 will begin in the first week of January 2019. AIMA does not hold any centralised counselling for candidates who qualify MAT. The examination is scheduled for December 9 (PBT) and December 15 (CBT), the results will be released on or after December 24. Check MAT Result

The selection process varies with college accepting MAT score. Some colleges directly admit candidates on the basis of their result; others hold pre-admission rounds- (Group Discussion (GD), Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT)) to shortlist candidates. Check MAT Participating Colleges

Important Points about MAT Counselling

  • AIMA will release MAT counselling notification on its official website i.e. aima.in.
  • Candidates have to register for every college they wish to apply for separately on the college’s website.
  • Seats will be allotted on the basis of scores obtained in MAT as well as other selection rounds combined.
  • There are nearly 600 B-Schools in the country that accept MAT score. Know about MAT Cut off
Note: In majority of the management institutions these days, Written Ability Test (WAT) is given more weightage, than the group discussions. It is because the admission committee believes it is more convenient to judge a person’s viewpoints based on Written Ability Test than in a Group Discussion.

Hello Sayantan,All India Management Association (AIMA) sent candidate's score to only selected institutes. In case you want to send your score to institutes other than the ones in the preferences filled, you need to send a ‘Request for Sending MAT Score to Additional Institutes’.
