Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply online?
Go to the link www.msatsecondary.com and then click on application procedure. Read the instructions carefully and apply using the link provided in msat(Secondary) - 2020 website.
Why there is two dates of examination?
For the convenience of the applicants, msat(Secondary) is going to conduct on two dates (i) On 09 May, 2020 and (ii) On 12 May, 2020. Applicants need to opt for a single date of examination.
Why should I choose three examination cities?
A candidate will most likely be allotted a centre in the examination city of his / her first choice. Only in cases where there are too many candidates opting for a certain city as their first choice, the other two choices will be relevant. A candidate is required to fill his / her Primary as well as Secondary choices, but should remember that because of operational constraints, the MSAT(Secondary) board reserves the right to allot a examination centre among your choices.
My power / internet connection failed during the application process, what do I do?
Please login to the MSAT(Secondary)-2020 application website www.msatsecondary.com again and continue the application process.
SC / ST / PH candidates have been asked to upload the category certificates. Do they have to upload the category certificate?
