The Two-Phase MAT 2019 Exam

MAT Expected Cutoff 2019

The MAT February 2019 Exam is held in two phases: MAT 2019 Paper-based test (PBT) Phase -1 was held on February 17, 2019 between 10 AM to 12.30 PM. MAT 2019 Paper-based Test (PBT) Phase – 2 will also be held on February 23, 2019 between 10 AM to 12:30 PM, alongside MAT 2019 Computer-based test (CBT), which will take place in multiple slots.

Candidates have the facility to appear in both the Phase 1 and Phase 2 of MAT 2019 Exam. However, AIMA does not allow test takers to write both MAT 2019 PBT Phase 2 and MAT 2019 CBT, as they will be taking place simultaneously on February 23, 2019.

However, candidates can appear for both the MAT 2019 PBT Test (Phase 1) and MAT 2019 CBT Test, held on separate dates, which will give them an additional advantage of choosing 2 extra management institutes, besides the already existing 5 management institutes. Thus, they will be able to choose 7 management institutes in total.
