To get admission at IIMs, the institutes conduct national-level entrance tests including, IPMAT (IIM Rohtak and IIM Indore) and JIPMAT (IIM Jammu and IIM Bodh Gaya). Limited seats and many students preparing for IPMAT lead to high competition. Along with practice, evaluating IPMAT mock tests is important for advanced preparation.

How to analyze your IPM mock test?

If you have attempted a mock and seen your score, whether good or bad, there is room for improvement. Therefore, IPMAT mocks are crucial. Mocks require analyzing,  understanding, and inferring certain things.

1. Strengths and weaknesses:
 If one is consistently scoring well in the verbal section and better in the quant, one should focus more on quant while also keeping an eye on verbal. 

2.  Find topics in a section that score higher:
Identify your high-scoring topics within a section. This could include arithmetic in quantitative examinations or reading comprehension in verbal examinations. This will help you understand IPMAT and shape your preparation.

3.  Continued Learning:
Practice solving problems by taking mock exams, whether timed or not. Once you determine the right approach, you can focus on planning.

4.  Make a strong point plan:
Identify your strengths and weaknesses and devise a plan to improve them. Before moving on to weak ones, it is best to focus on the strong ones and make them your strengths. Assess your performance thoroughly by taking your mock exams at the right time.

5.  Timely review:
Divide the mock preparation into two parts, one set being timed and the other not. The first time you answer a question; do not keep track of time. Instead, focus on finding solutions and taking your time to comprehend the concepts. The next step is to complete the timed tests that will be used to evaluate the mocks and performance.         

By taking the mock test, you will develop your problem-solving skills. With these practice tests, you will be able to become familiar with the IPM exam and develop a test-taking strategy and understand how the scoring system works. You can contact IMS for more information about the IPMAT exam.
