what were the cut offs for PWD category in IPMAT (rohtak & indore) for 2019?

Suryashis Chakraborty 25th Jan, 2020

Hello Sonu,

IPMAT Cutoff has remained more or less same over last few years. The cut-offs for PWD category in IPMAT 2019 were divided into Quant Cut Offs and Verbal Cut Offs. The former required a minimum of 8 in MCQs and 0 in non MCQs and the latter required a minimum of 24.

Hope this helps you. Careers360 wishes you the best for your future endeavours!



will be giving boards in March 2020( commerce-maths). got 2 plans in mind: 1.prepare for CA CPT (june 2020) wait for merit based du selection & persue CA side by side b.com(with regular/open) & try CAT after UG. 2. take a crash course (IPMAT, DUJAT) & if not get selected then give CA CPT (Nov 2020)

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 25th Jan, 2020

Your plans are great and its really appreciable that you are ready so early.
Now if we talk about your 1st plan then here the most important thing is that you will have to get good marks in your boards to get selected in a good college in DU.
You said you want to do CA and prepare for CAT after graduation.This is where you will get stuck.See,CA itself is very time consuming and one of the toughest exams in india and you need special preparation for it.And on the other hand you said you want to prepare for CAT too which is also a tough exam.My opinion for you is that you should choose any one. If you are interested in management then simply take admission in B.Com and start preparing for CAT and if you are interested in Accounting then prepare only for CA after taking admission in B.Com.

Your 2nd option is good because you are keeping a backup with you so if you will fail in the entrance of DU JAT then you can go for CA but make sure you take admission in B.Com.

You will have to choose one between CA and CAT.
You can do MBA after CA so i would say if you are really interested in management then go for CAT.
If you will aim for both at the same time then you might end up messing both.

I hope this helps.

I will be giving boards in March 2020 (commerce with maths), and planning to go for a crash course for management colleges (IPMAT, DUJAT etc.). what if I dont get selected from these entrance exams? will I have to drop a whole year and prepare again?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 25th Jan, 2020

Unfortunately you will have to drop because these are entrance exams are take place only once in a year and if you fail to crack then you will be in trouble if you don't have any plan for backup.
Now, there are few thing that you can do primarily to avoid a waste of 1 year.
If you are really interested in management then there are lots of college that offer BBA and BMS course where you can enroll.
If not then, try to score good marks in boards and get admission in Delhi University and do B.Com and the you can prepare for CAT and get admission in top IIMs.
You must not waste one year just for admission in a UG course and too after commerce.
So, be ready with plan B.

Now, the best plan is to study as much as hard as you can and crack the entrance exam.
This is the best option that you can actually do.

Good Luck.

Any fees is needed for studying?

Yes. According to recent changes in the eligibility you can give and are eligible for IPMAT.

Following is the link of the syllabus for IPMAT 2020 and check if you are comfortable with it-


The exam is solely based on the exam but there is a minimum criteria for marks which you can check on-


Books- One of the best books to prepare for IPMAT is ‘Crack the IIM Indore IPM Entrance Exam’, published by Pearson and written by IIM Lucknow Alumnus Nishit Sinha.
