Prior they permitted the possibility to present their enhanced scores over CMAT Sep exam yet this change was just minimal and used to be lost in the sparkle of CAT/XAT scores in the majority of the B-schools.

    Other than the B schools honor higher weightage to CAT/XAT/GMAT scores keeping in mind comparing the CMAT scores at standard with them, the weightage is lessened.

    AICTE proposes to streamline CMAT
