my dob is 28 08 1999 am i eligible for ipmat

Ronak Gala Student Expert 5th Nov, 2019

You might not be eligible to apply for the IPMAT exam. Because the age elgibility criteria of the IPMAT 2020 exam is that the candidate's maximum age should be 20 years on or before 1st of August 2020. And I guess you have finished your 20 years of age this year already. But this is a rule for general category. If you belong to SC ST OR PWD reservation category then the maximum age limit is 25 years of age.

To know the elibility criterias of the IPMAT exam in detail, kindly refer to the following link..


Best wishes. Thank you.

I am pcm background and preparing for ipm will I get any advantage of this

Ronak Gala Student Expert 27th Oct, 2019

Yes definitely, if you do your pcm well, then surely you get a bit of edge over the other candidates.


  1. Its assumed that the science student’s Math concepts are better , hence they have an added edge over the others.
  2. IIM Indore has a Sizeable Math component and especially higher math component , So if you had math in 12th you have an edge.
  3. Let’s understand the Math section of the Paper. It is divided into 2 parts ( Math /Quant Section) MCQs and Subjective Part. Yes IIM Indore has a subjective math section , wherein the student is expected to type out the answer (IIM Indore is an Online Exam) The subjective section has 20 Question and 40 minutes to answer , hence we can assume that its going to be a difficult section. The Math MCQ section has 40 Questions to be answered in 40 min.
  4. Verbal is the other section that is checked , the trend states that it is an relatively manageable section. 40 Question in 40 min

Once you clear the written exam , you are then shortlisted for the WAT ( Writting Assessment/ Ability Test) and Personal Interview round.

Total SEats available are 120 and 50% of the them are reserved.

Best wishes. Thank you.
