Each of the institute will have their own MAT cutoff marks and will vary from each other. Also, the cutoff marks of MAT May will differ according to the category of the candidate.

The MAT PBT and CBT was held on May 07 and 13, respectively. The result is expected to be announced in the last week of May 2017. More details on MAT 2017 cutoff scores is provided in this article.
