CMAT 2021: The Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) 2021 has been postponed to next month, according to the latest updates provided by the National Test Agency. The date of the exam has not been finalised yet but is expected to take place in the last week of March or in early April 2021.
The exam was previously set to be held on February 22 and 27. Due to the postponement, the agency has now reopened the registration process for the CMAT 2021 exam. Interested candidates can apply at www.cmat.nta.nic.in till February 25.
Meanwhile, February 26 is the last date for successful final transaction of fee through SBI/HDFC Credit/Debit Card/ Net Banking/Paytm till 11:50 pm.
