NTA will follow the ‘Normalization procedure based on Percentile Score’ as the candidates will be provided different sets of CMAT questions per session and the difficulty level in different sessions may not be exactly the same.
The application fee has also been increased by the NTA. The detailed fee schedule is given below:
|Category||Previous year||Current Year|
|Reserved category (SC/ ST/ PwD/ female candidates)||700||1000|
|SC/ ST/ PwD/ Male candidates||800||1000|
NTA has also increased the CMAT exam centres due to the pandemic situation from 104 to 153.
The candidates need to carry the downloaded self-declaration form from the NTA website along with the admit card on the day of the exam. They need to fill it and give it to the invigilator.
NTA will now conduct all the programs covered by the UPSEE entrance exam. These were earlier conducted by Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU). AKTU will consider the CMAT scorecard for the academic year 2021 to offer admission into the MBA programme.
