KMAT exam today

The KPPGCA – established on January 29, 2003 – was born of a felt need for a professional body to provide proactive support to professional education and facilitate and streamline admission to postgraduate professional courses, viz., MBA and MCA.

The KPPGCA has in its fold 113 member institutions which are affiliated to universities in Karnataka. From the past five years, KPPGCA has been holding the KMAT at test centers across Karnataka to fill the management quota of seats of MBA and MCA courses. 

This year KMAT 2011 is scheduled to be held on Sunday, July 24, from 2 pm to 5 pm in 12 centres and is open to students from all states.

Applications were available online at and at all colleges since May 1.
Last year, around 9,000 students appeared for KMAT and 4,000 students were admitted on the basis of the KMAT scores. This year, 8,000 seats are available for MBA and 4,000 for MCA in 143 colleges.

These 8,000 MBA seats and 4,000 MCA seats form 50 pc of the total number of postgraduate seats in Karnataka. The remaining 50 pc is reserved for PGCET, an entrance exam that is conducted by the State government.

Under the agreement signed with the State government, 50 pc of the total intake in MBA and MCA courses in all private unaided institutions shall be filled on the basis of merit (in the PGCET examination) through centralized counseling by the Karnataka Examination Authority. The tuition fee payable will be Rs 50,000  a year, in addition to university fees.

The remaining 50 pc will be filled through one of the eligibility tests such as the KMAT of any other national test. The tuition fee payable will be Rs 50,000 a year in addition to university fees. There will be no reservation for SC/ST or OBC categories under this quota.

For this year, the state government has not mandated a centralized counselling process for the private or unaided institutions, and have left it to the KPPGCA to decide on the mode of admission.

However, the government has appointed a monitoring committee to ensure proper implementation of the norms prescribed by the government.
