National Testing Agency (NTA) has recently added a test centre locator service on the official website. Candidates who are appearing for the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) 2019 can use the service to locate the exam centre. The venue for the examination has been written on the CMAT admit card along with the exam timings. In the link provided by NTA, candidates have to select their allotted test centre and then Google Map will show the exact location of the venue.
NTA has also released the exam advisory mentioning the important instructions for the exam. Since CMAT is a computer-based exam, proper measures will be taken to conduct the exam smoothly without any hindrance. The exam centre will be under CCTV surveillance and jammer equipped. Also, candidates must follow the exam rules to avoid inconvenience later.
#1. No Entry without these documents
It is essential that candidates have CMAT 2019 Admit Card, photo identity proof, and a photograph with them. Prefer to have a colored print out on the A-4 size paper. The photograph should be same as uploaded in the application form as it needs to be pasted on the attendance sheet. Importantly, the identity proof must be in the original. Driving License/ PAN Card/ Voter ID/ Passport/ Aadhar are only valid proofs. If applicable candidates must also bring PwD certificate.
