Tests Accepted for MBA in India
The basic mandatory requirement of B schools in India is usually CAT or GMAT. Overall, there are 6 nationalised tests approved by AICTE (GMAT, CAT, MAT, ATMA, NMAT, XAT and CMAT).
While the CAT, MAT, XAT, IIFT, NMAT, SNAP, etc., are accepted by only the related institution and limited B-schools, GMAT is accepted by a larger range of B-schools across India. By taking the GMAT, a candidate has an advantage of applying to business schools across the globe.
