National Testing Agency was expected to release the CMAT 2022 notification in the first week of January 2022. However, there is no update regarding the notification as of now. Every year, the notification is released at the designated time and month. However, this time, there is an unexpected delay in the release of the official notification. CMAT (Common Management Admission Test) is held annually to provide admission to candidates in leading MBA/PGDM courses on the basis of the marks scored in the examination.
Although, no one is aware of the exact reason candidates think that splurge in the pandemic cases is the foremost reason for this delay. However, all of these are mere speculations and the correct reason for this delay can only be answered by the concerned authorities. Hence, to help the candidates we called the helpline number of the agency today, check out the excerpts of the conversation in the space below:
Q: Hello! When will the NTA release the CMAT 2022 and GPAT 2022 notification?
