      The test will consist of three sections as listed below:

      Section 1: Analytical Ability: Algebra, Arithmetic, Data Analysis, Geometry, Logical Reasoning, Modern Mathematics
      Section 2: Written and Verbal Ability: Verbal Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Errors in Usage etc

      For more information refer http://blog.careermitra.com/2011/07/aptitude-test-model-paper-iim-indores-five-year-ipm/.

      I don’t think so there will be a biased selection based on the stream no matter which ever stream.

  7. Respected Sir,
    We are very happy to hear about the integrated course that IIM Indore has planed to launch this year. However I feel, the competition to get into this institution will be tremendously high.My scores in 10th was 92% and in 12th was 83%. Just wanted to ask, what are my chances of clearing the first selection test?

  8. sir,although it is quite clear dat eligibility criteria for this programme are 60% aggregate marks at Secondary and Higher Secondary/XII/+2 level but the stram is not mentioned….i wanted to know whether a student is eligible if he/she doesn’t has maths at +2 level?

I read in one of the iim indores site that they not going to give post graduate degree and they will give give only diploma degree that too after five years.so is it worth spending amount of about 23 lacs for a degree of diploma. No doubt it is from one of the most biggest and reputed institute but still i need to think a lot over this. Please do reply me as soon as possible.

    Dear Sir,
    Many thanks for your wonderful PGP programme, and undoubtedly the
    aspirants will be benefitted a lot. But,we could not understand as to
    why IIM
    Indore has planned to give post graduate Diploma instead of degree
    certificate to the
    students after spending and passing out 5 yrs. integrated PGP course from there.
    You would also agree with me that the diploma certificate is all way
    inferior to degree course. If IIM Indore has actually planned to do
    that, then it will not be a justice to the students because of giving merely a
    diploma certificates after 5 yrs. In almost all the competitve
    examinations in India there is a clear cut eligibility of degree
    certificates, but not diploma.
    It is, therefore, requested to kindly reconsider it and give a second
    thought on this important issue, and acordingly plan for imparting
    degree certificates instead of PGP diploma, in the interst of career
    of students.

    Thanks and regards

  18. Sir

    I wish to bring to your kind notice that public in general have
    extremely delighted to know that your esteemed Institution has decided
    to start 5 yrs. integrated PGP programme for 12th passed students.
    Your Institution certainly deserves all appreciations and
    congratulations for taking this courageous and dynamic step to address
    the burning need of imparting quality education in management in our
    country. People are eagerly waiting for the admission announcement. My
    daughter is dreaming day and night for IIM Indore, after listening
    this news.

    But, most humbly, I request your high office to kindly
    consider our one request, and that is the modification in age limit
    for this entrance test programme. Since the last date for accepting
    application forms to IIM Indore is 06-09-2011, and atleast December
    will come very easily after completing all formalities. In this
    case,age calculation for the IIM aspirants may kindly be done as on
    31-12-2011 instead of 30-06-2011. If your high office consider our
    request, then my daughter may also get an opportunity to sit in the
    IIM Indore admission test, since her date of birth is 15-11-1994.
    Hope, you would do the needful in the interest of aspiring students
    like my daughter. Awaiting anxiously a line of reply from your office
    in this regards.

  37. Its a good step, induction new, good quality educational institutes in the society has stagnated, and on the other hand literacy levels as well as population is rising, causing an imbalance of demand and supply, leading 100% cut of as declared by a Delhi College. Such a situation is horrifying not only to a student but also to a parent. A Child has a right to pursue his/her career, in a proper congenial atmosphere which is less stressful. By opening more of such career avenues it is a step in the right direction. Best of Luck IIM Indore.
