CMAT not the sole entrance test clarifies Supreme Court

B-schools across India definitely took a sigh of relief on March 1, with Supreme Court (SC) passing a judgment that Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) of AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) is just one of the other MBA entrance tests and is not the only and compulsory entrance exam for the B-schools.

Moreover, SC also stated that B-schools can continue using their 5 all India recognized tests - Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET), AIMS Test for Management (ATMA), Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT), Management Aptitude Test (MAT) and Common Admission Test (CAT). CMAT will be an addition to these 5 entrance tests and will be the 6th all India common management entrance exam.

However, JMET utilized by the IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) B-schools has already been scrapped and IITs will now be using CAT scores for granting admissions to the students.

Responding to an application made by Education Promotion Society for India which sought clarification in public interest, a Supreme Court bench of Justice A K Patnaik and Justice Swatanter Kumar passed the order: “We clarify that as per the interim order passed by this court on 26 July, 2011, PGDM institutions may continue to admit students for 2012-13 who have taken CAT, MAT, XAT, ATMA, and JMET”. This order was a response to the application submitted by Education Promotion Society for India (EPSI) seeking clarification in public interest. 

Even though the B-schools accepting the above mentioned exams are presently rejoicing over SC’s order, DTE (Department of Technical Education) in Goa, Nagaland, Chattisgarh, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra have declared their decision of accepting CMAT scores for admissions.

AICTE concluded CMAT last week with exams taking place at 68 centers all over India.
