    Re: Is it necessary to take up OPENMAT to take up MBA through distant learning?

    OPENMAT is an entrance exam conducted by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) for admission to their different MBA programs. It is conducted twice a year - once in the month of February and once in the month of August. In 2012, it was conducted on 12 February 2012.

    This exam is not compulsory for all students wishing to pursue the business courses. If a candidate has successfully cleared the national level entrance exams for MBA such as CAT,MAT or other state level entrances then those scores are considered. The cut-off for such exams are decided by the University itself.

    The only compulsory criteria is that the candidate should be a graduate from any recognized University with minimum 50% aggregate or 45% for reserved category.

    So, if you are giving the CAT exam or any other state level exam you can relax and concentrate only on successfully clearing them as it will be highly beneficial for you and will open up a huge number of opportunities.

    Good Luck!

    Hello friend

    It is not necessary to have only OPENMAT SCORES for taking admission in distant learning .

    To take MBA ,the candidates are required to produce the scores of Entrance tests .

    SO the foremost admission criteria is to have score ard of MBA entrance exam as specified by the college rules.

    This is equally applicable when one wants to join MBA through distance education.

    BUt talking about OPENMAT ,it is an entrance test held by IGNOU University for giving admissions to the candidates for MBA course.

    This is the internal exam of IGNOU .But the students having other scores like CAT,MAT etc are also considered and they are not required to take this specific test .

    So if you have not taken any other test or you want to apply to some other University,you are not required to take IGNOU OPENMAT TEST .

    Thanks

    hi friend.
    no its not necessary to sit and clear the openmat test for pursuing mba from distance education. openmat test is conducted by (ignou indira gandhi national open university) to get admission in mba from ignou only, no other distance education university accepts the score card of the openmat so if you want to do your mba from ignou then it is necessary to sit and clear te openmat. and incase you want to do your mba from any other distance university then its not required.
    all the best.

    hi friend,

    OPENMAT is an entrance exam conducted by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) for admission to their different MBA programs. It is conducted twice a year.
    its not necessary to take OPENMAT for distance learning MBA.

    there are many entrance exams for MBA. if you crack the entrance exams then you are able to do MBA.
    IF you want to do MBA from IGNOU then you have to clear OPENMAT exam.
    OPENMAT exam score is valid only for IGNOU.


    BEST OF LUCK..........
