New Delhi: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Friday made a minor change in its norms related to admission in postgraduate diploma in management and postgraduate certificate in management.

Earlier it was said 50% of seats for admission have to be filled through state-level test for admission in management courses. Many institutes opposed this provision.

However, AICTE has stuck to its ground and not acceded to the other demand of management institutes, which have been clamoring for freedom to conduct their own admission test.

AICTE clarified that institutes will have freedom to chose either Common Admission Test (CAT) or Management Admission Test (MAT) or examination conducted by the states for giving admission.

Institutes will have to inform the state government about the test that it has opted for to give admission to students. Then, the state government will allot students on the preferences expressed by the institutions. Minority institutions however shall effect admissions through common entrance test as applicable to them.
