All India Management Association (AIMA) is all set to conduct an online MAT (Management Aptitude Test) exam. AIMA partnered with Mercer | Mettl for a new exam option called Internet-Based Test (IBT). AIMA conducts MAT across 60 cities in India for admission to MBA programs offered by over 600 B-Schools across the country. 

MAT was conducted through two modes -‘Paper-based’ and ‘Computer-based’ modes. AIMA has introduced the remote proctored Internet-Based Test (IBT) as a third option to continue with the examination schedules while following the social distancing norms. MAT is India’s second-largest MBA Entrance Exam for MBA and allied programs for admission to over 600 B-Schools (Business Schools) in India. 

  • With Mercer | Mettl’s platform this test can now be administered virtually, wherein candidates can appear for these exams sitting at home, and invigilators can invigilate them from anywhere. 
  • Mercer | Mettl is also offering demo and practice tests for candidates, to make them acquainted with the exam system and experience the hint of remotely proctored exams before taking the actual exams. 
  • Siddhartha Gupta, CEO, Mercer | Mettl, while sharing his thoughts said, “This lockdown has made institutions realize that they can leverage internet-based, remote invigilated tests to conduct their entrance exams and not let this calamity disrupt their usual schedule.” 

Remotely proctored exams can be conducted for thousands of students at a time and eliminate the logistics costs and dependency on infrastructures. Students and invigilators will only require a laptop with a webcam and stable internet connectivity.
