JIPMAT 2021 Exam Analysis and Cut Off

JIPMAT 2021 was conducted by National Testing Agency on August 10, 2021 for admissions into five-year Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) at IIM Jammu and IIM Bodhgaya. The two IIMs are starting the program for the first time, and they went ahead for a joint entrance exam instead of separate ones.

The paper comprised 100 questions across three sections: Quantitative Aptitude (MCQ); Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (MCQ), and Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (MCQ). The duration of the exam was reduced to 150 minutes, with no sectional time limit.

Every correct attempt would fetch 4 marks, while every incorrect attempt would attract a penalty of 1 mark (except for the short answer section).
