How To Prepare For IPMAT?

Now that I've explained everything about the IPMAT exam, the next big question that you will have in your mind right now is how to ignite the spark to prepare for this exam. Don't worry, Main Hoon Na!

Here comes the best and most proven strategy that I have searched out for you after observing the students who have already topped the IPMAT examinations.

  1. First, start your preparation with the topics that have high- weight in the IPMAT exam.
  2. It is very important to give equal importance to each section, especially the people who are targeting for the IPMAT Indore exam, as there is a sectional cut-off in the IPMAT Indore exam.
  3. Don't sit for long hours in your initial preparation, if you do not have a long sitting habit already. Otherwise, you will get easily drained out and won't be able to study with full efficiency.
  4. iQuanta LRDI mentor Yogesh Joshi initiated the 10/10/10 strategy for IPMAT aspirants, which means to aim for targeting 10 questions in each section on a daily basis. By following this strategy, you will be able to cover 30 questions per day, which is equal to 900 questions monthly. You can target and give importance to each subject equally by following this amazing strategy. Also, once you gain the habit of doing 10 questions per subject daily and if you start to feel like now is the time that you can do more, then start gradually increasing the number of questions per subject.
  5. For the VARC section, start reading newspapers or online news articles, which is definitely going to help you improve your vocabulary. You can also work on your general knowledge by doing this regularly, which can also help you in the interviews.
  6. Refer to Previous Years' Question Paper to know the pattern of questions and the types of questions asked. You can refer to and check IPMAT Previous Year Papers here.
  7. Last but not least, try and give as many Mocks as you can, which will definitely help you gain confidence and know your high and low points, so that you can practice and focus on the particular parts that you are weak at. Solving mocks will also help you improve your speed and ability to attempt and finish the exam on time.

These are some of the most important strategy tips that will surely help you ace your exams.
