    Re: Can i get admission for MBA in IGNOU without writing open MAT exam?

    No friend,you need to write IGNOU OPENMAT entrance test before you apply for admissions in IGNOU as it is a basic requirement for joining management courses in IGNOU.But those students who have taken other tests like CAT,MAT and other state level tests need not to take OPENMAT.So if you have taken any of such tests ,you can skip the OPENMAT .

    IGNOU provides seven degree /diploma programmes in management.The list of such programmes is as follows:
    MBA
    Diploma in Management DIM
    Post graduate Diploma in Management PGDIM
    Post graduate diplome in Human Resource Management PGDHRM
    Post graduate diploma in Financial Management PGDFM
    Post graduate diploma in Operations Management PGDOM
    Post graduate dploma in Marketing Management PGDMM.

    IGNOU has its own test naming IGNOU OPENMAT which is to be held on 12th February,2012.and those students who have atleast 50%marks in graduation are eligible.The reserved classes have a relaxation of 5% in the percentage,

    Thanks

    Dear friend,

    IGNOU conduct it's own entrance test which is called OPENMAT. You need to appear for it. You need to have a graduation degree with at least 50% marks.

    IGNOU has a great value of it's MBA degree so take the entrance test lightly. you will get a model paper booklet along with the for, you can do preparations accordingly.

    good luck

    Re: Can i get admission for MBA in IGNOU without writing open MAT exam?

    No you can't get direct admission in IGNOU without giving the OPENMAT exam, Its a compulsory to get admission,
    And to do MBA from IGNOU you should be graduate with minimum 50% in any stream.
    And you have to get good score in Entrance exam.There is hardly any colleges or university which can provide admission without appearing in the entrance exam.


    There are five papers in MAT which is given below:

    Paper 1 : Language Comprehension
    Paper 2 : Mathematical Skills
    Paper 3 : Data Analysis
    Paper 4 : Intelligence & Critical Reasoning
    Paper 5 : Indian & Global Environment Section

    Ther are Total Questions 200 which you have completed in 150 min.

    Good Luck.

    Hi friend,


    Website says people who have appeared for State level tests need not appear in OPENMAT.
    As PGCET is state level exam you do not need to give OPENMAT.
    Have you downloaded/brought brochure from IGNOU. It will contain all information about eligibility. Information on their site is bit short. But from whatever is available we can say that you are eligible.

    BTW Congrats for clearing PGCET.

    • IGNOU refers to Indira Gandhi National Open University by which you can pursue MBA in distance mode.
    • You can not eligibile to take admission in IGNOU without applying/qualifying in OPENMAT which is the Entrance examination.
    • However you can be exempted from OPENMAT if you have qualified in CAT,MAT and any other state level tests.
    • There is no upper age limit for pursuing this course.
    • So you must have to appear in OPENMAT and crack it with good percentile.
