Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on August 30, 2012 Published on August 30, 2012

Aptech, which conducts training and learning services, is conducting the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) mandated by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) from September 27 to October 1.

Banking on the technical superiority and a glitch-free process witnessed last year, the project duration has been reduced from nine days to five days this time around.

The number of cities, where the examination will be conducted, has been increased to 64 cities. This will eventually lead to a rise in the number of centres.

S.S. Mantha, Chairman, AICTE, said: “This format allows students to save time, energy and money by institutionalising online testing. The current CMAT is for admission to academic year 2013-2014. We would consider the best of two scores between the CMAT held in September/October and the next sometime later in the year for admissions in 2013-2014.’’

Commenting on the online test, Aptech CEO & MD Ninad Karpe said: “It greatly benefits stakeholders in conducting tests with utmost transparency and eases the burden of logistics for both colleges and students taking up the tests.’’

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.
