The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indore conducts a national level aptitude test once every year in May for admissions into its 5 year Integrated Program in Management (IPM). The selection procedure consists of 2 phases: the Aptitude test and the WAT-PI. The 2017 IPMAT will be conducted on 16th May and the result is expected to be declared by end of May or early April.
The 2 hour online Aptitude test consists of 100 questions. The exam is divided in 2 sections: 60 questions of Quantitative Ability (QA) and 40 questions of Verbal Ability. This year, IIM Indore introduced the sectional time limit i.e. 75 minutes for QA and 45 minutes for VA. Nationally, over 17,000 students compete for around 120 seats.
Based on the marks obtained in the Aptitude test, candidates are called for the next round of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI). It is essential to clear the overall as well as the sectional cut-off to be called for the next round of selection. The computation of score of Aptitude test is done as follows:
Score in QA= 65 * (𝐶𝑎𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑑𝑎𝑡𝑒′𝑠 𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒−𝑀𝑖𝑛.𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒)/ (𝑀𝑎𝑥. 𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒−𝑀𝑖𝑛.𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒)
Score in VA= 35 * (𝐶𝑎𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑑𝑎𝑡𝑒′𝑠 𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒−𝑀𝑖𝑛.𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒)/ (𝑀𝑎𝑥. 𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒−𝑀𝑖𝑛.𝑆𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑒)
Final Score= Score in (QA+VA)
After WAT-PI, the composite score is calculated for the final admission. The weightage of the different stages are as follows:
|Aptitude Test Score (ATS)||50|
|Personal Interview (PI)||35|
|Written Ability Test (WAT)||15|
