For some B-school students, the B-school journey ends with a poor CAT or XAT score. But, for others, the window stays open with the Common Management Admission Test, better known as CMAT. An online computer-based test conducted by National Testing Agency, CMAT allows students to get into selected AICTE approved management institutes and programmes. In this article, we would help you understand the route to an institute like IMT Nagpur, one of the major B-schools accepting CMAT scores, through the lens of a student on campus. Saurjya Bhattacharjee (PGDM 2020-22) takes us through to the overall process, scores needed for admission, interview experience, and much more in this article:
What CMAT scores are needed to get into IMT Nagpur?
Cut-offs tend to change on a yearly basis depending on the difficulty level of the entrance exam you have taken & some other external factors. Having said that, it is a general rule of thumb that any score on the higher side of the 80 percentile in CAT/XAT/CMAT is sufficient to make yourself eligible for admission at IMT NAGPUR.
Moreover, it is desirable for a candidate to have a decent Academic Track record. Any hiccups in the aforesaid track record will invite some tricky questions in the interview round. Hence, it is better to be prepared for such questions if your academics is ‘not exactly scot-free’.
However, it goes without saying that a candidate’s performance in the subsequent screening rounds is what really determines the candidate’s admission status. The Group Exercises are tailor-made to test the candidate’s leadership skills & his/her ability to work in a group.
What are the other factors to keep in mind for aspirants who have taken CMAT this year?
Regardless of whichever Entrance test (CAT, XAT, or CMAT) a Candidate takes, the preparation is always the same. Interviewers in the panel always look for the best candidates. You should thus showcase an aptitude and hunger to learn. No one is perfect. It’s those who strive for perfection who are the most sought after.
It is not what you have got. It’s what you do with what you have; goes the saying.
How is the overall experience of getting into an Institution like IMT Nagpur?
IMT Nagpur strives towards providing the best possible launch pad for its students. I say this from first-hand experience. The generosity of the institution in providing a handsome scholarship to many students has really touched me. The faculty & the staff of IMT Nagpur are really supportive.
