IRMASAT 2023 Exam Pattern

Institute of Rural Management Ananda (IRMA) prescribes the IRMASAT 2023 Exam Pattern every year. IRMASAT 2023 exam pattern has been completely changed. Institute of Rural Management, Anand will conduct a Written Ability Test (WAT) instead of IRMASAT for the 2023 session. The total duration of the WAT examination conducted for IRMA admissions will be 30 minutes.

Key Changes in IRMASAT Pattern

  • IRMASAT 2023 has been replaced by WAT 2023. Earlier, before conducting the IRMASAT Entrance exam, the college used to shortlist the candidates based on CAT and XAT scores for IRMASAT. IRMA will also shortlist the students based on CAT 2023 or XAT 2023 exam scores for its PGDM (RM) program.
  • Unlike a computer-based IRMASAT, the Written Ability Test (WAT) at IRMA is a paper pen based test 
  • Written Ability Test (WAT) carries a weightage of 5% in the final selection
  • The total duration of the WAT is 30 minutes.

Candidates appearing for IRMA admissions need to appear in WAT instead of the IRMASAT 2023 exam. In case, the candidate has appeared both in CAT 2021 and XAT 2023 exams, IRMA will consider a higher score in shortlisting the candidates for WAT & PI.
