IPMAT Indore 2024 Cut-off

The cut-offs for clearing the IPMAT exam can vary over the years. But clearing the cutoffs doesn’t guarantee admission to the prestigious programs. Every year, around 2000 students clear the cut–offs, after which they are called in for the personal interview round. Only 150 candidates will clear the personal interview rounds.

In IPMAT Indore, it is essential to clear both – the sectional cutoffs as well as the overall cutoff. The cutoff is different for candidates from different categories. We’ve compiled the 2023 sectional cutoffs and overall cutoffs for different categories.

 

Category Quantitative Ability SA Quantitative Ability MCQ Verbal Ability
EWS 4 26 98
GEN 12 39 125
NC-OBC 4 23 91
PwD 4 5 43
SC 4 15 69
ST 4 5 43

 

The overall cutoffs for IPMAT 2023 were:

 

Category Cut-off Marks
General 189
NC-OBC 102
SC 76
ST 61
EWS 130
PwD 90

The cutoffs for 2024 will depend on many factors, such as the number of applicants and the difficulty level of the exam. But we expect the minimum required score to be around the same number.
