How will MAT 2022 IBT Mode be conducted?


In this manner, the applicants will take exams online.

Candidates will first need to check in with their credentials and confirm their identity. In this testing format, candidates will be remotely supervised by both human and artificial intelligence (AI) proctors.

It will be distinct from conventional modalities, in which candidates take tests in controlled environments while being supervised by proctors. To prevent cheating, the candidate in MAT IBT Mode would be under the online watchful eyes of the invigilators.

Additionally, MAT IBT will be proctored online. As was already said, candidates who are discovered to be acting outside of the pre-established behavioural norms will first receive a warning; nevertheless, if they continue, they risk being rejected.  


Computer-Based Test MAT (December)


The MAT 2022 CBT mode, often known as the online form of assessment, stands for Computer Based Test. Candidates must take the exam on a computer in the designated testing location under the watchful eyes of examiners and CCTV cameras. The MAT CBT mode's key characteristics are:
