Is there any difference between Computer Based Online Test and Paper-Pencil Offline Test.

* Computer Based Online test means the candidate sits in front of a computer and the questions are presented on the computer monitor and the candidate submits the answers through the use of keyboard or mouse.
* Each computer is connected to a server, which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer.
* This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test, which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates. MAT September 2009 will be offered over a period of time and the candidate can choose the center, the day and time of his/her convenience to take the test, as described in the later sections.
* Online Entrance Test assumes that the candidate has basic familiarity with use of computers like use of keyboard and mouse operation. It is the responsibility of the candidate to acquire these skills before appearing in the test and AIMA cannot take responsibility for the same.
* In traditional Paper-Pencil Test, Candidate is supposed to bring Pen, HB-Pencils, Erasers and Sharper with him/her and Question Paper & OMR Answer Sheet is provided at the Test Centre.
