What does the IPMAT 2021 test?

When it comes to the IPMAT Syllabus, neither IIM Indore nor IIM Rohtak release any information about what gets tested. However, based on what questions appear in the examination, which is released by the IIMs, we can estimate what gets tested in the examination by the IIMs. Both IPM examiantions have a severe portion overlap in the Quantitative Aptitude and the Verbal Ability section. IIM Rohtak also tests an additional Logical Reasoning section. You will find all the information available in this page.

IIM Indore and IIM Rohtak conduct the IPM Program using their own admission test (IPMAT) for their five-year Integrated Programme in Management. It's imporatant that you learn what the portion is before sitting for the examiantion because you can perform to your maximum potential if you know what to expect from the exam.

Considering the postponements in the examinations conducted, you have enough time to prepare for the IPMAT post your 12th standard board examinations comfortably. This also means that everyone will get a lot of time to prepare, which will cause the cut-offs to get slightly higher since the average candidate's performance is going to improve.
