      Hey Sharan, you can undoubtfully apply for mat exam but being frank,(dont be discouraged) the problem you’ll face is in the selection process. Even though u perform good in exam and gdpi round but prefrence would be given to the students who have completed their graduation on a daily basis.
      This was told to me by the head of the selection commitee itself from one of the colleges because my case was same as yours. So.. U can appear for the exam but you need to work really really hard in all the three sections (exam,gd,pi) if u want to be selected beacause prioroties are given to the regular ones .
