Though, many don’t opt for this exam thinking that it is not highly credible. Still, we have listed down a few important reasons about why an MBA aspirant should appear MAT.

MAT Acceptance: One of the biggest advantages of appearing MAT is that it is accepted more than 600 MBA colleges across India except for the institutes who have their own entrance exam.

·        MAT Exam happens 4 times in a year: Most of the MBA entrance exams like CAT, XAT, NMAT, and SNAP, etc. are conducted only once a year.

But, so is not the case in MAT entrance test as it is the only MBA entrance exam which is conducted 4 times a year, namely February, May, September, and December.
