IIM Indore has conducted IPMAT 2016 on May 13 for the admission to its 5 year Integrated Programme in Management 2016-21 batch. The exam was held in computer based mode for the first time but no glitch has been reported so far. According to the test takers and experts, the exam followed the prescribed pattern and the overall difficulty level can be termed as moderate to tough. The Quantitative Ability section was the toughest among the two.
Shriya Garg, an IPMAT 2016 candidate shares, “The exam was tough, especially for those who did not have Maths in 10+2 level as a number of questions were asked on Modern Maths, SET Theory etc. On the other hand, Verbal Ability section was quite easy.”
Now let us have a look at the section wise analysis.
According to the Career Launcher experts, Quantitative Ability section was of tough difficulty level. There were 60 questions in this section. For the first time, non-MCQ type questions were introduced. Around 2 to 3 questions did not have any option and the candidates had to answer in the space provided.
The following table brings to you the topics covered in this section.

Geometry and Mensuration
2 sets (7-8)
Majority of the questions were on Algebra and Number System. Logical Reasoning, AP/GP and Divisibility-Remainders topics had 7 to 8 questions each. Rest of the topics included Inequalities and Quadratic Equations. One question each based on Coordinate Geometry and Higher Maths (Matrices and Determinants).
According to the experts of Career Launcher, in 80 minutes, an attempt of 31-33 can be considered a good attempt. A 125+ score in this section can be considered a good score.
The difficulty level of this section was easy to moderate. The total number of questions in this section was 40. The topic wise number of questions are given in the table below:

As known that for admission into IIM's IPM one has to go through A.T and a personal interview.
The Aptitude test consists of 2 parts. One that of quantitative aptitude and other being the verbal ability. For quantitative aptitute one can refer to the book Qbjective Arithmetic of R.S. Aggarwal, though this book is meant for the entrances of railway and other similar things but since the syllabus is quite the same so this book is helpful as well. Apart from this one has to completely solve NCERT Maths book for class XI and XII. As chapters like P&C, Binomial Theorem, Complex Number, Functions and Calculus are also included for the test.
For the verbal ability thing any good English book like that of Wren n Martin, Nesfield, R.S Aggarwal's verbal ability is good.
The Arihant Publications guide is a good book as well which combines the Objective Arithmetic and Verbal ability in one but I think that one has to completely solve class XI and XII NCERT of Maths as well.
For the interview thing one has to be aware of all the General Knowledge thing. Reading newspaper , magazines is always helpful. One has to look upon his body language as well. Co curricular activities are always helpful.
Best wishes. Thank you.
The Pearson guide is a good book as well which combines the Objective Arithmetic and Verbal ability in one but I think that one has to completely solve class XI and XII NCERT of Maths as well.
let me clear your doubt.
One of the best books to prepare for IPMAT exam is ‘Crack the IIM Indore IPM Entrance Exam’, published by Pearson and written by IIM Lucknow Alumnus Nishit Sinha.
