IPMAT Selection Procedure Stages

 

Stage One: Integrated Programme in Management Aptitude Test or IPMAT

 

As per the revised pattern set by IIM Indore, IPMAT 2018 will be conducted in three sections namely Quantitative Ability- Multiple Choice, Quantitative Ability- Short Answer and Verbal Ability- Multiple Choice

 

Section 1: Quantitative Aptitude- MCQ. This section consists 40 questions each carrying 4 marks.

Section 2: Quantitative Ability- SA. This section will contain 20 questions each carrying 4 marks. candidates must note that negative marking will not be applicable in this section.

Section 3: Verbal Ability- MCQ. This section will contain 40 questions, each carrying 4 marks.

 

For each incorrect answer, there is a penalty of one mark.

 

After the test, the candidates will be called in a ratio of 1:10, category-wise. Only shortlisted students are called for the further procedures. The IIM Indore officials state, “It is also to be noted that only those candidates whose raw scores in both the sections are positive will be considered for shortlisting for PI”.

 

Stage Two: Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI)

 

The next stage of IPMAT 2018 will be the WAT-PI rounds, where the shortlisted candidates are interviewed by a panel of IIM Indore. The interview judges the students’ level of confidence, communication skills, general awareness, persuasion skills and knowledge. They have to also write an essay on a given topic. The selection at this round depends on the candidate's performance in these two rounds. This is the last stage after which students are selected and are given final admissions to the five-year integrated management programme. The best 120 candidates are granted admission to this prestigious course.
