Exam pattern allows candidates to focus on the areas where they need to improve and helps them get familiar with the exam format and procedures. Here we have provided the exam pattern of the MAT 2024 examination:

  1. Modes of Examination: The MAT 2024 exam will be conducted through three different modes:
  • Computer-Based Test (CBT): Candidates will take the exam on a computer, digitally interacting with the questions and options.
  • Paper-Based Test (PBT): This traditional mode involves candidates marking their answers on an OMR sheet using a pen or pencil.
  • Internet-Based Test (IBT): With a secure online interface, candidates will take the exam remotely from their computers.
  1. Duration: Candidates will have 2 and a half hours (150 minutes) to complete the examination. This timeframe includes the time needed to attempt all the sections and questions.
  2. Sections: The MAT 2024 question paper will consist of a total of 5 distinct sections, each assessing a specific skill set or knowledge domain. These sections are designed to evaluate candidates’ abilities across different subject areas comprehensively.
