Colleges through CMAT: The CMAT results are out! All India Merit list of CMAT candidates is listed out in the AICTE website. Now the big question: which all colleges accept CMAT?
CMAT is a move by AICTE to end the long list of MBA entrances in the country. But since the announcement came late, for 2012-13, students had to take CMAT in additional to the exhausting exam list already present. But from 2013 on-wards, most of the MBA exams may be scrapped (depends on Court’s verdict).
As per the website, all MBA colleges which have AICTE approval are expected to consider CMAT for their admissions, even for 2012. But many top institutions, since already declared their selection process , are not willing to accept CMAT for this year.
MBA Colleges considering CMAT scores
There are 2000+ B schools which consider CMAT for 2012-13, as per the AICTE website. You can access the list of CMAT colleges in this link : http://aicte-cmat.in/Documents/51.pdf.
But unfortunately only 2-3 colleges which can be rated among Top 75 MBA colleges in India have agreed for CMAT this year, which puts the students under worry, and makes CMAT 2012 almost meaningless.
Top colleges under CMAT 2012
- Goa Institute of Management
- KJ Somaiya (not considering CMAT for PGDM core course)
- We school (Wellingar)
Will JBIMS accept CMAT scores ?

Normalization in CMAT?
Though the CMAT spanned across 9 days, it appears that there is no normalization in the scoring process. This means that there will be no Raw Score and Scaled Score as what you might observe in CAT. This makes this test more transparent. Near 50000 students has appeared for CMAT 2012, and it went over without much technical gliches.
