Online IPMAT Coaching from 2IIM

IPMAT Syllabus:

Like most aptitude tests, the IPMAT tests your time management skills, your ability to learn and most importantly, your ability to think. In order to tick all these boxes, one must start somewhere right? Where better to start planning for an exam than its syllabus? Familiarizing yourself with the IPMAT Syllabus will enable you to plan your IPMAT Preparation accordingly.

The only difference in the syllabi of the IPMATs offered by IIM Indore and IIM Rohtak, is the inclusion of the Logical Reasoning Section by IPM Rohtak. Kindly refer to the exam pattern above for the duration of each section, and the number of questions within each section, for the respective IPMATs.

Quantitative Ability:

While the syllabus remains the same for the QA Section in both IPMATs, there is a difference between the way they are tested in the respective IPMATs, as mentioned earlier in the IPMAT Exam Pattern Section. Additionally, 1 or 2 Data Interpretation sets (~4 questions) are tested within the IPMATā€™s QA Section.

  • IIM Indore IPM: QA is divided into two sections, as we saw in the exam pattern - MCQs and TITAs.
