CMAT 2013 May Have Emotional Quotient Test The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) plans to test the ” emotional quotient” (EQ) of aspiring management graduates in the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) that it conducts every year.

“We are working with experts to create content that can evaluate a candidate’s emotional intelligence to judge how suitable he or she is for the course,” said S S Mantha, AICTE chairman.

The new section with weightage of about 25 marks out of the total 400 is likely to be introduced in October, 2013. Questions will evaluate the EQ of candidates besides skills like quantitative technique, logical reasoning, language comprehension and general awareness.

CMAT is an online computer-based test conducted by AICTE to facilitate 3,700 institutions running management programmes in the country. It is a national-level test for all institutes, excluding the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs).

There are at least five-six management tests including CMAT. The premier IIMs conduct the common admission test (CAT) independently. Other established tests include MAT and GMAT that are accepted by some institutes.

The CMAT was introduced as part of the government’s effort to reduce the multiple entrance exams for admissions to MBA and post-graduate diploma in management (PGDM) programmes at institutes approved by AICTE. However, the move has only been partially successful.

The AICTE plans to conducts the test twice a year—in February and October. Online registration for CMAT 2013-2014 started on November 1 and will continue till January 2, 2013. The test will be conducted between February 21 and 25, 2013, and is eligible for graduates in any discipline and final year students of graduate courses. It will be conducted in 62 cities.
