There are many institutes offering MBAs in India. The admission procedure, the eligibility criteria and the selection method will vary from institute to institute.

All graduates are eligible to apply for MBA course. The minimum percentage required may vary from institute to institute. I understand, some institutes like IIT, Kharagpur are asking for a pass with a minimum of 60% in 4 years graduation programme. The students should go through the details based on the institute they select to know the specific requirements.

The majority of institutes go by scores obtained in Standard aptitude tests like, Common Admission Test (CAT), Common Entrance Test (CET), Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET), Management Aptitude Test (MAT), Xavier Admission Test (XAT) and AIMS Test for Management Admissions (ATMA). Some Institutes conduct their own entrance test but many of them may exempt students who attended one of the above tests. There are some institutes that allot seats based on the marks obtained in the qualifying examination.

Each institute will announce an admission notification and in that notification, they will mention the aptitude test.

So we can't say it is mandatory to appear for any standardized management aptitude test for MBA program admissions. That depends on the institute and once a student decides about the institute he has to follow the guidelines given in their notification.

The requirement for a standardized management aptitude test for admission to an MBA program can vary depending on the institution you are applying to. Some business schools and universities will accept scores from standardized tests, while some will have alternative admission criteria and some may waive the test requirement.

Most business schools and universities accept scores from standardized tests such as Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). These tests will evaluate the verbal communication, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills of the candidates. While some business schools and universities accept alternative tests like EA (Executive Assessment) or may have their own admission tests.

Additionally, there are certain universities that waive the test requirement altogether. These universities consider the factors such as previous academic achievements, work experience, or other qualifying criteria.

It is recommended to review the admission requirements of the specific institutions you are interested in, to determine whether a standardized management aptitude test is mandatory for MBA admission. You can visit their admission offices or official websites to get information regarding the tests they accept for admission to the MBA program.
