Best Tips to Manage IPMAT Preparation with Board Exams 2024

Preparation for the IPMAT 2024 entrance exam is one of the challenges for most of you studying for the board exams. However, you can easily manage both board exams and IPMAT preparation with determination and hard work.

Spare some time for IPMAT from your daily activities that you think are not important.

Divide your preparation into alternate days pattern, i.e., one day you can pick topics from Quantitative Aptitude and the next day topics from English, and so on because IPMAT has only two subjects.

Immediately after completing your board exams, you can follow the IPMAT Study Plan given in the table below.

Topic Preferred Time Allotment
Topics from Quantitative Aptitude 2-2.5 hours
Topics from Verbal Ability 2 hours
Reading Newspaper 45 minutes
Practice Reading Comprehension 1 hour
Revision for the day and planning for the next day 1-1.5 hours
Solve Previous Year's Question Papers 1-5-2 hours (weekly twice)

Suppose you are preparing for 8 hours a day; make sure to give at least 1 hour for revision at the end of the day. So that you can remember all the topics you have studied earlier for a more extended period.

Don't include tough subjects continuously. Try to mix and match the topics. If you assign a tricky concept from the quant, choose an easy topic from verbal ability.

In this way, you can build interest to study more and not get bored till the completion of the exam.
