**Weightage of Quant Section in IPMAT **

Here are the commonly asked questions related to the Quant section of IPMAT.

- Is Maths compulsory for IPMAT 2023? Yes, the Mathematics section is the most scoring section. To meet the IPMAT cut-off marks, you must attempt the Quant section.
- Does IPMAT require Maths? - As per the latest pattern, IPMAT 2023 asks 60 questions based on Quantitative Reasoning. So, IPMAT 2023 obviously requires Maths. There is a high weightage for Quantitative Aptitude, with 40 questions in MCQ format and 20 questions in Short Answer (SA) format.

As you may wonder, 'How to prepare for IPMAT Maths?' We are here to answer the question. As per the **Exam Pattern for IPMAT**, 60% of the question paper comprises the **quantitative section**. So, make sure you don't go easy on this section specifically. It is important to begin from the basics so that it is easy to study tough topics.

Ensure that your basics are clear and have a good grip. You can pen down the topics in which you are weak and strong separately. This can help you to decide on which topic you need to focus more on. You can check out the topics involved in the Mathematics section below. The quantitative section is divided into two categories:

**1. Objective questions**

**2. Descriptive questions**.

This means the question paper includes **40 Multiple choice questions** and **20 short answer questions** under this section.

Generally, there are two types of students.

**Type 1**. If you are strong in Quantitative Ability - Belonging to the Maths background, study Mathematics till class 12th.

**Type 2.** If you are weak in Quantitative Ability - Those who studied Mathematics till class 9th or 10th.

So, categorize yourself into Type 1 and Type 2, and pick a preparation strategy depending on that. There are two ways to score well in Maths for IPMAT.

**If you are strong in Quantitative Ability -**

Make sure you maximize your score in this section. As a result, you should expect to score 140-145 on QA (SA+MCQs). A total of 35-37 questions were attempted out of 60 questions in the QA test. Given that the sections in IPMAT are timed, you will not even get to attempt more than this. Thus focus on accuracy.

**If you are weak in Quantitative Ability - **

Don't underestimate Quantitative Ability. To clear the overall cut-off, you need to solve the entire VA section, i.e., a score of 136-140 in VA, once you are confident you have attempted enough to clear the cut-off.

Again, the sections in IPMAT are time-bound, and only good planning and rigorous practice through good quality mock papers and previous year's papers will help you ironclad your strategy for clearing the IPMAT cut-off. With limited time in each section, you cannot definitely solve all questions and therefore only focus on questions that are from topics that are your strengths. Time and again, Arithmetic and Algebra have been important topics for IPMAT and other entrance exams. Thus, practice and master these topics as they hold a high weightage in IPMAT.
