CMAT 2020 was conducted on January 28, 2020 in a single slot from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm. CMAT scores are accepted by many top MBA colleges like Goa Institute of Management, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya etc.
The exam was conducted in the Computer Based Test (CBT) format. The duration of the exam was three hours (180 minutes). The structure of CMAT 2020 remained the same as that of the earlier CMAT exams.
The test had four sections with 25 questions each. Each question was of MCQ type with four options. Each correct answer carried four marks while there was a penalty of 1 mark for every wrong answer. There was no time limit for each section. A candidate could freely move across the sections throughout the exam duration.
As compared to the paper pattern two years back, there were fewer number of calculation-intensive questions. The questions were spread across a wide range of topics viz., Numbers, Ratio & Proportion, Time & Work, Time & Distance, Geometry, Mensuration, P&C, Probability, Sets & Venn Diagrams, etc.
