On the other hand, KMAT has only three sections, which are comprehension, reasoning, and Quantitative Aptitude.
2. Pattern: The duration to attempt 100 questions in CMAT is 3 hours, whereas it is 2 hours for 120 questions in KMAT. There are five options for each question in the CMAT unlike the four in the KMAT.
3. Negative Marking: The CMAT has negative marking of minus one mark for every wrong answer and four marks for each correct answer. There is no negative marking in the KMAT exam, and you get one mark for each correct answer.
4. Difficulty: Due to negative marking and a larger syllabus, the CMAT is tougher than the KMAT exam.
5. Acceptance: The CMAT score has more acceptance for admission to MBA courses, unlike the KMAT. Which is only for Karnataka business schools.

Here is a small comparison to help you decide which exam you want to take: (A) Advantages of Choosing MAT Over CMAT:
1. The benefit of giving MAT over CMAT is that you can attempt MAT four times in the same academic session to improve the exam score. The CMAT exam is conducted once a year and provides less scope for improvement in score.
2. The MAT is conducted in three modes: computer-based mode, paper-based mode, and internet-based mode. Therefore, you can choose the exam mode according to your convenience. On the other hand, the CMAT is conducted only in computer-based mode. (B) Advantages of Choosing CMAT Over MAT:
1. The CMAT score has more acceptability than the MAT. In contrast to the 700 MBA colleges that accept MAT. Over 1300 B schools admit students based on the CMAT. It includes top B schools such as the Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai.
2. The CMAT is regarded as the second-best option after the CAT for admission to India's top business schools. Its score is valid for one year, unlike the MAT. You can choose MAT for convenience, but CMAT is recommended for top colleges.

Since the CMAT score is accepted by top B-schools in India such as JBIMS, it is very important to score well.
1. You need to plan a proper strategy as per the available time. For instance, since the CMAT 2023 is expected in April next year, you need to plan your schedule accordingly.
2. The initial months should be dedicated to completing the CMAT syllabus.
3. You need to understand the CMAT exam pattern thoroughly to know which part is more important.
4. Plan a section-wise strategy. For example, to tackle the Reading Comprehension (RC) questions, you need to develop the habit of reading business-related blogs and newspapers.
5. Then you need to allocate at least one month to practicing for the CMAT with the help of mock tests. Give extra time to the sections in which you are not scoring well. For instance, if you are facing problems in the Quantitative Techniques section, then you need to brush up on basic maths.
7. The last days of CMAT preparation should be exclusively reserved for the revision of important topics.
