UPDATE (12 midnight), March 13, 2013: CMAT Feb 2013 resultS declared. You can view your results here.
UPDATE (10.00PM) : SS Mantha, Chairman, AICTE has just told us that the results of the CMAT Feb 2013 will be declared at midnight. AICTE had earlier told us that the results will be declared at 9 pm. However, they failed to stick to the deadline. This is the second lapse today after the alleged results link which surfaced earlier in the day. We are keeping a tab on the CMAT results and will keep you updated.
Results for the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) held in February 2013 will be out by 9 PM tonight but we already know that Mikin Mayur Bhai Shah from Ahmedabad has topped the test by scoring 376 out of 400. Padaki Sagar Srinivas from Mumbai has ranked second with a score of 360 while Preeti Chakravorty from Cochin gets the third rank with a score of 354, SS Mantha, Chairman, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), confirmed to PaGaLGuY.
The other candidates in the top ten include 4 students from Mumbai and one each from Chandigarh, Bangalore and Gurgaon. Maharashtra saw the maximum number of test takers at 56,000. In addition, the national average marks scored stand at 94 with the male average score at 98 and the female average score at 88. Of the 1.45 lakh students who registered for the exam, as many as 35% were girls. Reserved category students constituted around 32% (OBC – 23%, SC – 8%, ST – 1%) of the candidates, Mantha added.
Questioned again about the fiasco with the alleged fake scorecards released hours before the final results of the February 2013 CMAT, Mr Mantha retracted his earlier statement that the scorecards are fake. He told PaGaLGuY that AICTE had been testing the uploaded data during which some students were able to view the scorecards. However, he refused to comment whether the results viewed by the aspirants were genuine or not.
Clearing confusion on the eligibility of candidates who can appear for the extra May 2013 CMAT, Mantha confirmed that the candidates can take a maximum of two attempts for the academic year 2013-15. “Those who have taken only one test i.e September 2012 or February 2013 CMAT will be allowed to appear for the May 2013 CMAT,” Mantha concluded.
