    The validity of a CAT/MAT score is for one year from the announcement of a result. It is mentioned in the sites of IIM and AIMA which conduct these exams. So, I'm sorry to say but your MAT score is not valid for admission in this year. The work experience you have will be very helpful to you during the admission process as mostly people with some prior work experience are always given a priority when it comes to admission in management programs.

    I would suggest that you don't rely on your MAT score and give the OPENMAT this year. It is scheduled on 19 August 2012 and you can fill the form online till 15 July 2012. Another option for you would be to give the MAT exam in December and since you already have a certain idea about the paper and its pattern having scored so well once, you will surely do well this time too and then try for admissions next year. Till then you can extend your work experience. So a quick decision is required on your part.

    All the best!

    dear friend.
    the validity of cat and mat score card is one year.
    as you told that you have scored 99.8%ile in mat in feb 2010 so it is not valid in 2012. so either you have to appear in openmat or any other mba entrance exam.
    you have the experience of more than one year in banking so it will help you in future also.
    all the best.

    Hello friend,
    Well you are looking for MBA in Indira Gandhi National Open University which is the best university for Distance MBA course in India. So it is a good decission. As you have qualified MAT with 99.8% which is a best score. But it got in 2010 itself. Generally the scores for the entrance examinations of MBA will be valid for 1 year only, So as it is already passed 2yrs so you will not allowed to get admission through MAT score.
    Further it is to inform that you will try for next session batch in IGNOU. For the next session you will get notification for OPENMAT in the month of November or December, So you can join for janauary session. So all the best

    • IGNOU i.e Indira Gandhi National Open University is an good university to pursue the MBA course.
    • The validity of the CAT/MAT score is only an period of One year.
    • So your's score card of Management aptitude test (MAT) is also one year.
    • Though you have got good percentile of 99.8 in MAT in the year 2010, but the validity of this has already comes to an end.
    • Validity is calculated from the date of Issue.
    • Now you are required to appear in the OPEN Mat Again to get the admission in Next session.

    Hello friend

    Most of the entrance exams for MBA are valid for 1 year from the date of its result .

    Similarly MAT and CAT are also valid for 1 year . You can take CAT test once a year while MAT is held 4 times a year .

    The validity of CAT is full 1 year while MAT is held 4 times a year so it is valid for the while 1 year so exam held in Feb,2012 will be valid till Feb,2013 .

    SO the candidates can make use of the score card for a period of 1 year .

    Thanks
