  • If one compares MAT with other management tests like CAT, XAT, and NMAT, the difficulty level of MAT is less. It is way simpler than the other management exams. Also since most of the sections of MAT exam are covered under other exams, no extra efforts are required for its preparation.
  • The frequency at which MAT exam is conducted in a year is the most advantageous point of this exam. MAT is conducted four times in a year, which means granting candidates ample opportunity and time to prepare well and appear for exams.
