The list of b-schools that would accept the Common Management Aptitute Test (CMAT) in 2012 has been released by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on the CMAT website.
Notable schools from the PaGaLGuY B-school Rankings 2011 accepting CMAT scores according to the list are Asia Pacific Institute of Management (New Delhi), Goa Institute of Management (Goa), Gitam Institute of Management (Vizag), KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research (Mumbai), IFIM Business School (Bangalore), SIES College of Management Studies (Navi Mumbai), Department of Management Studies - NIT Dugapur and BITS Pilani.
However, despite having declared their intention of accepting CMAT scores, Institute of Management Technology (IMT) Nagpur and Hyderabad campuses have not been mentioned in the list.
SS Manta, chairman of AICTE had earlier said that 2,000 colleges had officially registered to accept CMAT scores this year. All AICTE approved colleges are ideally expected to accept the CMAT scores. However, state universities have shown real support (for the test) with Chhattisgarh being the latest to join in, Mantha said.
In addition, admit cards for the Common Management Aptitude Test (CMAT) 2012 will be available for downloading from the test's official website www.aicte-cmat.in from February 5, 2012 starting 11 AM. However, the list of the test's centres across 61 cities will be declared sometime later, an All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) official told PaGaLGuY. The list of centres allotted to candidates is being finalised. As soon as it is finalised it will be put up on the website, the official stated.
