About KMAT 2021
Kerala Management Admission Test is conducted two times a year, once in December and the second in July. Candidates, who could not score well in the first cycle, can take up the improvement examination in June along with other candidates freshly applying for the June examination. Even though they have taken the first cycle exam, candidates planning to take up the second cycle exam again will have to apply separately.
In addition to KMAT, management colleges in Kerala also consider CAT and CMAT scores for admission of students to the MBA course. However, MAT Score is not considered valid by B-Schools in Kerala. So, if a candidate has a MAT Score, he/she will have to take up KMAT. If he/she has a CAT/CMAT score, there is no need to take up KMAT. They can apply to management colleges in Kerala with their CAT/CMAT Score.
