How to Calculate MAT Score?

We all know that MAT is held after every 3 months. All of the test papers vary each time. These slight differences are accounted for during the scaling process. As a result of these adjustments, equal scaled scores in MAT result represent about the same level of ability, as measured by the MAT test, regardless of the administration or when the MAT exam was taken. 

Here are some important points: 

  • The scores are scaled to account for the difference in the difficulty level for each individual MAT
  • Score reports consist of the scores of all six sections: Language Comprehension, Mathematical Skills, Data Analysis & Sufficiency, Intelligence & Critical Reasoning, Composite score, Indian & Global Environment.
  • Score scales of the first four sections and the composite scores are based on the performance of candidates in the exam. 
  • Language Comprehension, Mathematical Skills, Data Analysis & Sufficiency, Intelligence & Critical Reasoning and Indian & Global Environment (Indian & Global Environment score, is calculated separately) are reported on a scale of 0 to 100. In this section, scores less than 20 and more than 80 are rare.
  • For each of the six scores, a percentile is given, which indicates the percentage of candidates who scored below the given mark based on the entire MAT testing population. The percentile below figure may change with each administration for the same scores.
  • Composite score is calculated on the basis of performance in the first four sections which include Language Comprehension, Mathematical Skills, Data Analysis & Sufficiency and Intelligence & Critical Reasoning.
  • The composite score is reported on a scale of 199 to 801. All scores below 200 are reported as 199 and all scores above 800 are reported 801.
  • Indian & Global Environment score is not considered in the composite score, but a minimum pass mark is required in this section to qualify the exam.
  • MAT 2020 scores cannot be compared with other tests or derived from another test. Differences in administration are compensated by the statistical process of score equating.

Q&A on MAT

Ques. What is the difference between CMAT and MAT, in terms of colleges it could get you in?

Ans. CMAT is conducted by NTA i.e. National Testing Agency. All its participating colleges must be AICTE approved in order to accept CMAT scorecard. Some of the top colleges that accept CMAT Score include top colleges like IMT, MICA, FORE Delhi, K. J. Somaiya etc.

On the other hand, AIMA, the conducting body of MAT, cannot mandate any such condition. Only the member institutes of AIMA accept MAT Result.

MAT Cut off for Top Colleges

MAT Cut off 2020

  • Other than official cut off released by AIMA, the colleges accepting MAT also release their separate cutoff. 
  • Candidates fulfilling the minimum cutoff criteria can apply using their MAT Scorecard. It can be downloaded from the official website.
  • It is expected that MAT cut off will go high this year. The reason behind the high cut off is the number of candidates appearing for the exam, level of difficulty of the exam and reservation norms. 
  • The expected MAT Cut off for Colleges 2020 is given below.

MAT 2020 Selection Process

  • The selection process varies from B-School to B-School. Usually, after the candidate has taken the entrance test, a merit list is issued by the colleges and accordingly, candidates are called for the next step of the admission process. This includes group discussion and personal interview.
  • If a candidate clears the group discussion and personal interview as per the rules of the college, he is granted admission to his chosen course and college.
  • Some colleges also have additional selection criteria of written ability test or essay writing rounds along, with the GD and PI rounds. 
  • The majority of the management colleges now give higher weightage to a candidate’s performance in the written test. This is so because it is easier to judge a candidate’s viewpoints while he is writing, unlike in GD/PI. Also, a soft-spoken candidate often loses his chance in a GD round. So, we advise you to score well in MAT 2020.
  • This year, MAT Counselling will begin from October 2020 onwards, for admission to more than 700 MBA programs. 
  • Registration for online counseling is important in order to participate in it on the provided date.
  • Submission of counselling fee should also be done online.

We wish all the deserving candidates save themselves a seat in one of the top colleges accepting MAT Result. Make sure you leave no stone unturned during your preparation period. Good luck!

Ques. What is the order of difficulty mode of entrances exam among these CAT, MAT, XAT, CMAT, ATMA and other exams conducted by deemed universities?

● Top Answer By Sahil Sachdeva on 18 Jan 21

Ans. The order of difficulty is definitely related to various factors but the prominent ones are candidates appearing & its composition. Keeping these in mind; the list is as follows: Common Aptitude Test(CAT) The exam is conducted by IIMs and accepted by most of the management institutes across the country.  The test duration is around 3 hours and comprises 100 questions.  A nice level of preparation is required to crack it as colleges look up to candidates holding more than 90 percentile. Xavier’s Aptitude Test (XAT) This examination is organised by Xavier Institute Of Management situated in Jamshedpur.  It also qualifies as a prominent score for management courses across various colleges.  The paper has sections similar to CAT but reasoning and general knowledge are the cracking points in the paper. Common Management Aptitude Test (CMAT) It is conducted by All India Council Of Technical Education(AICTE) having a moderate level of difficulty.  It takes general knowledge scores into consideration.  It is a 3 hour exam with 100 questions. Management Aptitude Test (MAT) This examination is conducted 4 times a year in February, May, September and December by All India Management Association (AIMA).  It is the easiest of all management exams and is accepted by 55-60% colleges across the country.  It is a 2.5 hour paper including 200 questions.  The percentile awarded is not inclusive of general knowledge score. The details regarding exams can be summed up in the table as follows: PAPER Number of questions Time duration (hours) Number of times paper conducted CAT 100 3 Once in a year (29 November 2020) XAT 100; 2 parts 3 Once in a year ( 3 January 2021) CMAT 100 3 Once in a year ( January 2021 ; registration open) MAT 200 2.5 4 times a year (February, May, September and December) The other prominent exams that are institute specific are : NMAT- Narsee Monjee Institute Of Management Studies -Management Aptitude Test SNAP- Symbiosis College – Symbiosis National Aptitude Test IIFT- Indian Institute Of Foreign Trade The aforesaid examinations are followed by GD/PI with a comprehensive evaluation of the entire academic cycle of candidate.
