It ain't as good as they all say.
Placements: In the final placements of AY 2023-34, 100% of students were placed. However, the placements were not great as many top recruiters did not hire or hired in fewer numbers. IIM Indore had better placements than most IIMs like Lucknow, and others like FMS in terms of the timeline of placements, difficulty in getting everybody placed, etc. I am not sure of the exact numbers, but the highest would be 1 crore+ from a random company offering many ESOPs. Otherwise, there were good placements with 30L+. The lowest would be less than 12-13L. For IPMers, many companies do not open, but the ones that do love IPMers (or at least IPMers are more easily able to convert the shortlists they do get). Top recruiters would include BCG, AT Kearney for Consulting; JPMC, DE Shaw, O3 Capital, etc. for Finance; HUL, Asian Paints, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, etc. for Marketing. However, since I am in the 4th year of the course, my information is not the best as all Summer Internship and Final Placement companies do not overlap. Summer Internship AY 2023-24, almost 95% of students got internships through campus, and almost everyone was placed. Some opted out to get better opportunities by themselves and through their connections. Top roles offered to IPMers were BCG and ATK in consulting, JPMC, DE Shaw in finance, HUL (finance and marketing), PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Amazon Product, etc. Again, placements for top IPMers were good, but since many companies have not opened to IPMers, some people struggled quite a lot and got internships with like a 30K stipend in startups and all.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi: Good, it has a backup line as well. Wi-Fi and storage capacity: very limited and troublesome. Throughout the course, you can only have 20GB of drive space, which is too low. Classrooms: Good. But now the program intake has increased, and they have not built new classrooms, which is why many classrooms are congested. Library: The online database is great. Sitting capacity, interiors, books, etc., are okayish and can be improved a lot when compared to IIM-A or Amity Noida, etc. Sports: Terrible. There is only an outdoor badminton court. The cricket ground is huge but not well maintained. Medical: It is world-class just for namesake. Most doctors there come to pass their time, except Anjali Ma'am. Mess: The mess is decent. Much can be improved, but at least there is variety and hygiene. Nutrition can be improved; they use subpar cooking mediums and all. The taste, like most messes, is bleh.
Faculty: I personally love the IPM curriculum. We study everything! Most faculty are nice, except the one who teaches ethics. How ironic! He repeated the past year papers in the exam and failed the students who reported him. Some other subpar faculty is there, but mostly good. Exam levels vary but are mostly good. It is a relatively grading system.

Q:   Can you suggest best IPMAT preparation books? Also, give suggestions to crack IPMAT?

A: 

The IPMAT test syllabus consists of three subjects divided into three sections. Here are some book recommendations from experts to help you get ready for the IPMAT test:

  1. Quantitative Aptitude: To prepare for this section, you can consult the NCERT Mathematics Books for Class 9 to Class 12 for maths. Additionally, you can pick any popular author like Sarvesh K. Verma, R. S. Aggarwal, or Arun Sharma as a reference. Students can also refer to books such as Quantitative Aptitude for All Competitive Examinations by Abhijit Guha, Quantitative Aptitude for Competitive Examination by RS Aggarwal, Fast Track Objective Arithmetic of Arihant Publications, etc. 
  2. Verbal Skills: You can prepare for comprehension questions by regularly reading newspapers. Apart from that, you need to prepare grammar from the High School English Grammar by Wren & Martin and verb skill-based questions from Nishit K. Sinha's book, Crack the IIM Indore IPM Entrance Exam. Students can also refer to books such as Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis, Objective General English by SP Bakshi, etc. 

To crack the IPMAT exam, students must have a thorough understanding of the topics and concepts. A good command over English, and enough Maths practice seals your place at IPM AT exam. It is necessary to practice and study regularly to score well in the IPMAT exam. 

 

Q:   How many attempts are there in IIM Indore IPM entrance exam?

A: 

The attempts at IPMAT Indore depends on the age criteria of the candidate. The eligibility criteria in terms of the age for this entrance is that the candidate should be a maximum of 20 years of age as of July 31, 2024, (for IPMAT Indore 2024) if you belong to the General, OBC or EWS category. Whereas there is 5 years relaxation for SC, ST and PWD candidates. The IPMAT 2024 exam will be conducted in third week of February 2024, and the candidates must download their IPMAT admit cards on the scheduled date in order to know the test centre details and slot timings. Candidates must reach the exam centre at least an hour before the commencement of the exam. The IPMAT exam was conducted in the afternoon shift, i. e. from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and hence, the candidates must reach the exam centre by 1:00 PM. The IPMAT exam is conducted only once in a year and the candidates must aim to crack the exam in first attempt. However, if they did not score well in the first attempt and their eligibility is still valid for the next year, then the students can definitely give a second try to the exam. 

 

Q:   Can a commerce student without maths apply for IPM? Which book should we refer for IPM?

A: 

Yes, commerce without Math students can take the IPM entrance exam. The eligibility criteria for the IPM program at IIMs require the candidate to have completed their 10+2 education or equivalent in any stream, i.e., arts, commerce, or science. 

Therefore, a student from a commerce background is eligible to apply for the IPMAT provided they fulfil all the other eligibility criteria, such as age limit, minimum academic requirements, and other specified criteria, as mentioned in the official notification. However, it is important to note that the IPM entrance exam is highly competitive where the level of Math is also high which requires any student to do thorough practice.

Speaking of Books, then there are several books available in the market that can help you prepare for the IPMAT exam like Quantitative Aptitude for Competitive Examinations by R.S Aggarwal Quantitative Aptitude by Arun Sharma and Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning by R.S Aggarwal Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation for the CAT by Nishit K. Sinha Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for the CAT by Nishit K. Sinha How to Prepare for Logical Reasoning for CAT by Arun Sharma

 

Q:   Is IPMAT IIM Indore better than IIM Rohtak's IPMAT?

A: 

IPMAT and IPM Aptitude Test (IIM Rohtak) have similar syllabus but the difficulty level is different. Both exams have Quantitative Aptitude and Verbal Ability sections. However, IIM Rohtak's IPMAT exam has an additional section- Logical Reasoning. While IPM Aptitude Test is an easy exam, IIM Indore's IPMAT is moderately tough but to say which is better totally depends upon the college a candidate is targeting for the five-year integrated programme. The participating colleges for both exams are different. If a candidate's dream college accepts IPMAT score, then they should appear for IPMAT exam. The IPMAT exam conducted by IIM Indore is accepted by other institutes such as IIFT, IIM Ranchi, Nirma University,  Alliance University,  NICMAR University,  Department of Management Studies and NALSAR University of Law. The benefit of IPMAT by IIM Indore is that the exam is accepted by multiple top management insitutes in country, whereas the one conducted by IIM Rohtak is only accepted by IIM Rohtak.
