  • Time Management– There is no section wise time limit of the exam, hence you have to be careful about the time management factor. Divide the time wisely between the two sections.
  • Revise – After completing the paper, revise all the questions carefully, including your rough work done on the scratch sheet provided at the test centre.
  • Extensive Reading: Read more to improve the language. Read books, magazines, journals, newspapers, and novels to enhance your word power and make your expression lucid.
  • Stay Positive : Learn to think positive and stay positive. Remove negative thoughts from your mind by pursuing things that interest you a lot.

Detailed Analysis: Quantitative Ability (SA)

This was the first section this year with total 20 questions. For the first time, IPMAT had a separate section on short answer type questions for Maths. There was no negative marking for this section; however, the section was moderately difficult. Most of the questions were from Logs, Arithmetic Progressions and Geometric progressions. There were questions on Permutation & Combination, Probability, Geometry (cube) too.


Detailed Analysis: Verbal Ability (MCQ)

There were two Reading Comprehension passages. One passage was on birds while the second passage concentrated on social media. Even 2017 had a passage on Social Media and networking. In the Para jumbles questions, options were not provided and thus the students had to key in the correct order.

Fill in the blanks questions were easy. The sentence correction questions tested the student’s concept of grammar. Overall, students found this section to be easy, and thus cut-off for this section is expected to be high, like last year. 

Detailed Analysis: Quantitative Ability (MCQ)

Unlike last year, questions on complex numbers were missing. There was a set of Data Interpretation. They tried to maintain balance among the topics. Overall, the section was difficult. An attempt of 18-20 questions can be considered a good one.
