Mudra Institute of Communications (MICA) has announced the exam date for MICAT 2019. The complete schedule for MICAT I and MICAT II has been published online at the official website mica.ac.in. The exam for MICAT 2019 will be held on December 02, 2018.
Nobody expected that the schedule for MICAT 2019 will be announced this early, since, last year the complete schedule was out in the month of September. However, now that the exam date has been announced, the registration for MICAT 2019 will start from tomorrow onwards, i.e. August 23, 2018.
One of the key point to note is that there is a clash in the exam of MICAT I and IIFT 2019. Both these exams are being held on December 02, 2018. The authorities have not made any clarification regarding this issue. There might be a possibility that the exam date for MICAT 2019 may change, however, nothing can be said for sure.
MICA offers admission in Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Communications (PGDM-C) which is a flagship programme. The candidates must have a Bachelor’s Degree (10+2+3 system) or an equivalent qualification in any discipline recognized by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) in order to apply for MICAT 2019. Those who are in the final year of their degree examination are also eligible to apply for the entrance test.
The selection process at MICA is a 3-step process. The candidates must have taken or will be appearing in CAT 2018/ XAT 2019/ GMAT 2017.
