IRMA ISC 2017 Analysis
Most of the questions were on Government Schemes or government institutions. Some such questions asked by IRMA included:
1. When was NABARD founded?
2. ASHA is a part of which mission or scheme?
3. Abbreviation of acronym -. DAPP
According to the experts, in the paragraph based questions, while some answers could be found directly in the passage itself, in others, candidates required prior knowledge to answer correctly. Although most of the questions were direct, some were inferential in nature. The topics of the passages were IRDP schemes, women-oriented schemes, educational initiatives of the government, short-term migration, and death due to cold.
The standalone questions were both on static GK as well as current affairs related to reports and indices, Five-Year Plans, Committees, Institutions and Schemes. Some of the questions were as follows:
1. What is the projected unemployment rate for 2018?
2. Who was tasked with revising the formula given by the Tendulkar committee?
3. What is the new scheme on SC/ST and women called?
4. In which city/state is NDDB located?
5. Which institution is the biggest stakeholder in Regional Rural Banks?
According to IMS experts, attempting 14 to 15 questions out of 31 passage based questions and four to five questions out of nine questions in 80 to 85 per cent accuracy would be considered good performance. The IRMA result 2017 is expected to be declared by the last week of February.

Also the students of final year can apply.
I hope my answer helps you. Wish you all the very best for your future endeavors!
my waiting list no is 65 in general category may i get admission in irma
With this waiting list chances are pretty less because if you consider previous 5 years trend then the students having waiting list under 30-35 is considered safe.
Last to last year 2-3 students got with 40-45 waiting list.
As you have mentioned that your's is 65 then i think chances are nil.
