Mumbai resident Pawan Khanna topped the second Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) for admissions to B-schools in 2015-16, with a score of 305 out of 400. CMAT is conducted twice a year by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Around 57,700 candidates appeared for the exam in February.
Khanna, 37, who works with a coaching institute that trains students for MBA entrance tests, said, “I am happy with the results. I was expecting 100 in the sections based on quantitative and logical reasoning, but I scored 85 in the quantitative section.”
“I wish to pursue an MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBMIMS), but they are not accepting CMAT scores this year,” he said.
While Sunil Kumar from Secunderabad scored the second rank, Gaurav Dave from Mumbai secured the third position.
Meanwhile, the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) on Wednesday night declared the results for the Common Entrance Test (MAH CET) held on March 14 and 15, on its website.
The exam is a gateway for admissions to B-schools in the state. As reported by HT, students had suffered because of several glitches experienced during the exam.
“I could not score as expected. The glitches affected my performance. DTE should have considered our demands for a re-test,” said a student who appeared for the test from the Thane centre. DTE officials did not respond to the calls.
