Highlights on JIPMAT Exam 2023:

1. Overall paper was reported to be between easy to moderate level of difficulty.

2. JIPMAT 2023 was already expected to be more difficulty than the JIPMAT 2024. IPMAT Rohtak, on the other hand, was easier than the 2022 exam. Between the two exams, JIPMAT 2023's level of difficulty is higher than IPMAT Rohtak 2023's.

3. The number of Good Question Attempts in the JIPMAT Exam 2023 can be considered at 85 Questions.

4. Approximately 8,500 students attempted JIPMAT 2023 on May 28, 2023 (based on Supergrads' conversation with dignitaries from the college in the past and an insight on the registration data).

5. Since there are multiple selection lists after JIPMAT for IIM Bodh Gaya and IIM Jammu, there's no need to worry. While qualifying scores are not enough to get into these IIMs, a higher number of attempts with an equally high level of accuracy is required from those that attempted JIPMAT Exam 2023. In this session of the exam, managing time to complete even 85+ Questions was definitely possible!

JIPMAT Exam Analysis 2023 for Verbal Ability

  • The exam was quite balanced. This section was just as expected. It was reported to be relatively easy to solve.
  • The only surprising thing was word meanings and synonyms/antonyms, which only those students who put vocabulary coverage on the back burner may have struggled with.
  • There were RCs and para jumbles, which were highly doable by all kinds of students. Questions based on idioms and phrases were also fair and direct. 
  • The questions in this section were limited to the syllabus and what is usually asked in the JIPMAT Exam Paper. Nothing beyond what should have appeared was asked in the Verbal Ability section.
  • In fact, on the whole, this section should have proved to be a time-saver for students struggling to complete the other two sections.
  • Good attempts in this section: About 30 Questions out of 34 Total Questions, with an accuracy of at least 90%.

Section-Wise Expected Cut-off 2023

Let's take a look at section-wise qualifying marks which are likely to be the case for JIPMAT Exam 2023, according to our experts.

General About 100 About 100 About 100
EWS* 35 35 35
NC/OBC* 35 35 35
SC* 30 30 30
ST* 25 25 25
PwC* 25 25 25

*Scores represented for these categories are based on IIM Bodh Gaya official cut-offs from 2022. The JIPMAT Exam cut-off for 2023 is likely to be a bit higher than these numbers for all categories.


  • Your performance needs to have been balanced across all 3 sections for the best result possible and a higher chance of qualifying for JIPMAT 2023.
  • Time consuming papers in themselves cannot be viewed as 'tough'. The problem a lot of students faced in this exam was time management. Whatever time was lost in QA and DI could be recovered in VA and therefore, cut-offs will be on the higher side.
  • The seat intake has also gone up for both IIM Bodh Gaya and IIM Jammu to 120 each. Even that will play into qualifying scores and cut-offs.
  • JIPMAT has a tendency to make some changes in each exam each year. You never know what is going to end up happening. In 2022, sectional cut-offs were applicable in shortlisting. As of now, we don't know what it's going to be for 2023.
