Syllabus for MAT

MAT is conducted 4 times every year by AIMA for admission into management courses offered by more than 600 affiliated Institutes. When compared to other national level examinations like CAT, XAT & IIFT, the difficulty level of MAT is considered easy to moderate. The real challenge in MAT is effective time management without compromising on accuracy. With 200 questions to be solved 2hr. 30 min, it is essential to formulate a concrete strategy to crack MAT.

The first step towards an effective preparation strategy is to know the syllabus well. Since AIMA has not given any official syllabus, we have identified the important topics based on the previous year papers. Following is a list of important topics from these areas:
