    Hello Naushad, Both CAT and MAT are national level examination examinations for admission in B school across the country.Both the examinations are fairly popular in the country and are widely accepted. Some institutes accept both CAT and MAT scores.

    CAT is a mandatory entrance exam conducted by the IIM’s. This is the first stage in the admission process to all the six IIMs. Other than IIMs other business schools also consider the CAT scores as the main eligibility criteria for enrolling students in their management courses. AIMATS conducts the MAT exam and it is known as the National Entrance Test for MBA and similar programs like PGDM. MAT is carried out four times in a year were as CAT is only once every year. The A-graded business schools review CAT scores where as MAT is reviewed by B-grade schools in the country.The difficulty level of CAT is more than MAT.

    Best of luck.

    Common Admission Test (CAT) and Management Aptitude Test (MAT) are the two national level MBA entrance exams.CAT is conducted for admission to top tier B-schools in India including IIM’s and MAT is used by next tier of B-schools for admission.

    CAT is a mandatory entrance exam conducted by the IIM’s. This is the first stage in the admission process to all the six IIMs which is followed by group discussion and personnel interview. Other than IIMs other business schools also consider the CAT scores as the main eligibility criteria for enrolling students in their management courses. AIMATS conducts the MAT exam and it is known as the National Entrance Test for MBA and similar programs like PGDM. MAT is carried out four times in a year were as CAT is only once every year. The A-graded business schools review CAT scores where as MAT is reviewed by B-grade schools in the country. Both the test evaluates the potential of students by judging their mathematical, verbal and analytical writing skills. However CAT is much tougher to crack compared to MAT as difficulty level of questions is more in the former compared to latter. CAT exam pattern has frequent changes, hence previous exam papers are less useful compared to MAT, where solving previous exam papers can help you to a larger extent.

    I hope this was helpful.
