MAT Exam Centers

The MAT test is given in about 50 cities across India that have been designated as test centres. At MAT exam centres, Paper Based Tests (PBT) and Computer Based Test (CBT) is given. Internet-Based Tests (IBT), on the other hand, are taken at the home. After the COVID-19 pandemic spread and the whole country was locked down in May 2020, MAT IBT was put into place. In 2023, the MAT will be given in three different ways: IBT, PBT, and CBT.

The registration process for the MAT 2023 exam started on December 27, 2022, and is still going on for all three modes. Candidates should know that the MAT application form cannot be changed after it has been submitted. So, they have to be careful when choosing the cities where MAT test centres will be set up. AIMA won’t let you change where you take the MAT test after you sign up.

MAT Exam Center Guidelines: COVID-19 SOPs

Since the MAT exam in both PBT and CBT modes is being run according to COVID-19 guidelines, the group in charge of running the exam, AIMA, has put out rules that must be followed at MAT exam centres.

  • At the MAT test centre, candidates are given different times to show up so that they are physically far apart. Test-takers must show up at the test centre during the time window listed on their MAT admit card.
  • Candidates for MAT 2023 must sign a self-declaration form that says they do not have COVID-19-like symptoms and have not been in contact with anyone who tested positive. This form is attached to the admit card. The same will be collected at the main entrance to the test centre by the staff. Candidates will only be allowed to enter if they submit the same and after they do so.
  • If a candidate is sick or has signs of sickness, like a fever, cough, cold, headache, etc., they should not go to the MAT test centre. If they do the same thing, they won’t be let into the test centre.
  • At the gate, a thermo gun will be used to check each candidate’s body temperature. If a student’s body temperature is higher than usual, they will not be allowed to take the MAT.
  • As part of getting ready for MAT 2023, the test centres will be cleaned well. Also, before entering the test centre, the candidates will have to put on masks that cover their noses and mouth and keep them on until they leave the building.
  • Before entering the test centre and as needed during the test, the candidates will have to wash their hands with soap and water.
  • They will also have to keep a safe distance from both other test takers and the staff at the test centre. Only touchless pat-downs will be allowed by test centre staff.
  • The staff at the test centre will check the MAT admit card 2023 and any other documents at the door. The lower part of your admit card will be given back to you with a stamp from the test centre.

Things to Bring to the MAT Center

  • Standard mask to properly cover the nose and mouth
