Today, over 600 B-schools in the country recognize and use MAT for admission to their institutions.

There are no plans to discontinue the MAT exam, as it is the largest test of its kind with national acceptance. AIMA will continue to administer MAT to MBA aspirants and recently concluded a test on 5th February 2012.The schedule of the next few MAT Tests is as under:
  • 6th May 2012
  • 2nd September 2012
  • 2nd December 2012
  • 3rd February 2013
These Paper Based Tests will be followed by Computer Based Test in multiple slots in following Saturdays of each MAT administration.

MATís uniqueness and success lies in its inclusiveness. It is administered in both the online and paper based format, thus reaching out to a much wider audience. Moreover, it accommodates the mixed education background of students while staying rigorous on testing aptitude.

AIMA has been successfully administering MAT for over 20 years now in both the online and written format. While the online version of MAT was introduced three years back, trends indicate that only 9% of the students opt for the computer based test.
