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 thing that was surprising in the exam were synonyms and antonyms. Students who didn't memorise specific words might have had trouble attempting the questions.
  • The RCs and para-jumble questions were on the easier side, which were doable by both prepared and unprepared candidates. Questions based on idioms and phrases were also fair and direct.
  • The questions in this section were limited to the JIPMAT 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%.

  • Some students reported having a critical reasoning question, while others did not.
  • Students have previously reported having attempted as many as 31 questions in this section, so to do better, you need to aim for more questions.
  • A good attempt for this section would be to answer 28-30 out of the total 33 questions.

Selection Criteria for IIM Bodh Gaya and IIM Jammu

IIM Bodh Gaya Selection Criteria: 

  • For candidates to be considered for selection, they must have at least 30 percentile marks in each section.
  • Your 10th or 12th marks hold importance. Selection is purely based on JIPMAT scores. 
  • IIM Bodh Gaya has increased seat intake to 120 seats.

In the event of students having the same overall composite score, the following tie-breaking criteria will be applied in descending order:

  • Overall JIPMAT score (higher score ranks higher)
  • VARC section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • QA section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • DILR section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class XII score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class X score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class XII exam appearance
  • Class X exam appearance
  • Date of Birth: Younger candidates’ rank will be higher.

Note: Candidates appearing in the more recent 10th and 12th exam will be ranked higher. 

IIM Jammu Selection Criteria: 

  • JIPMAT score holds 95% weightage.
  • 5% for Gender diversity, where an extra 5% out of total score will be given to female candidates.
  • Students will be taking the exam for 120 JIPMAT seats. 
  • Students must have a minimum sectional cut-off to be considered for the selection. The required marks are listed in the table below:
Category Quantitative Aptitude Data Interpretation Verbal Ability
General 50 50 50
EWS 35 35 35
NC-OBC 35 35 35
SC 30 30 30
ST 25 25 25
PwD 25 25 25

*Scores represented for these categories are based on IIM Bodh Gaya official cut-offs from past years. The JIPMAT Exam cut-off for 2024 is likely to be a bit higher than these numbers for all categories.

Important Points to Note for JIPMAT 2024

  • 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.
  • IIM Jammu had a seat intake of 140; IIM Bodhgaya also walked on the same line and increased their seat intake from 60 to 120. 
  • 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 2024.

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 thing that was surprising in the exam were synonyms and antonyms. Students who didn't memorise specific words might have had trouble attempting the questions.
  • The RCs and para-jumble questions were on the easier side, which were doable by both prepared and unprepared candidates. Questions based on idioms and phrases were also fair and direct.
  • The questions in this section were limited to the JIPMAT 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%.

Selection Criteria for IIM Bodh Gaya and IIM Jammu

IIM Bodh Gaya Selection Criteria: 

  • For candidates to be considered for selection, they must have at least 30 percentile marks in each section.
  • Your 10th or 12th marks hold importance. Selection is purely based on JIPMAT scores. 
  • IIM Bodh Gaya has increased seat intake to 120 seats.

In the event of students having the same overall composite score, the following tie-breaking criteria will be applied in descending order:

  • Overall JIPMAT score (higher score ranks higher)
  • VARC section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • QA section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • DILR section score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class XII score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class X score (higher score ranks higher)
  • Class XII exam appearance
  • Class X exam appearance
  • Date of Birth: Younger candidates’ rank will be higher.

Note: Candidates appearing in the more recent 10th and 12th exam will be ranked higher. 

IIM Jammu Selection Criteria: 

  • JIPMAT score holds 95% weightage.
  • 5% for Gender diversity, where an extra 5% out of total score will be given to female candidates.
  • Students will be taking the exam for 120 JIPMAT seats. 
  • Students must have a minimum sectional cut-off to be considered for the selection. The required marks are listed in the table below:
Category Quantitative Aptitude Data Interpretation Verbal Ability
General 50 50 50
EWS 35 35 35
NC-OBC 35 35 35
SC 30 30 30
ST 25 25 25
PwD 25 25 25

*Scores represented for these categories are based on IIM Bodh Gaya official cut-offs from past years. The JIPMAT Exam cut-off for 2024 is likely to be a bit higher than these numbers for all categories.

Important Points to Note for JIPMAT 2024

  • 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.
  • IIM Jammu had a seat intake of 140; IIM Bodhgaya also walked on the same line and increased their seat intake from 60 to 120. 
  • 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 2024.
