In India, starting in 2013, MBA candidates will have to give a single common test, as opposed to the multiple entrance exams that students are obligated to take if they wish to get admission to management courses. This common test will cover admissions to MBA, as well as postgraduate diploma in management. Known as the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT), this test will be open to all All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)- approved institutes. This move has been made with the hope to reduce the stress as well as the financial burden on students. However, autonomous B-schools like the Indian Institutes of Management will continue to conduct the CAT.
