After the assessment we can suggest students to concentrate on problem solving skills, English (synonyms, antonyms, paragraph reading & answering), Jumbled numbers, relationships, mathematics of class x, history of class x & general knowledge. Brush up your skills, time is what it matters to qualify for the test so improve speed.
IIM Indore hasn’t officially disclosed information about the Aptitude Test, probably the information will be disclosed after the shortlisting of students, to apply for the course one need not have knowledge about the AT. So apply if you are eligible and if you are shortlisted you will be provided with the necessary information to prepare for the Aptitude Test.
