1. Paper-based test (PBT) mode: This is an OMR-based test for which you have to report to the allotted test center.
2. Computer-Based Test (CBT) Mode: This is a computer-based test, but it also requires you to be present at the allotted test center.
3. Internet-Based Test (IBT): This is the most flexible one, and you have the option of taking the test on a computer system at home or at any other preferred place. The exam pattern and application fee are similar for all three modes. You need to pay the application fee of Rs. 1,850 to appear in any mode of the MAT exam.

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.
