The scores of IBSAT are used for admission into the MBA and Ph.D. programs of 9 ICFAI Business School (IBS) campuses. These campuses are located in Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Gurgaon, Dehradun, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.

The registration of IBSAT 2020 has already been started from 1st July 2019 and will close on 12th December 2019. The exam is going to be held on 22nd and 23rd December 2019 and the result will be declared on 27th December.

As only a few months are left for the exam, here we will discuss a few tips through which you can excel in IBSAT:

1: Brief knowledge of the syllabus and exam pattern

Knowing the syllabus and exam pattern is the 1st step to start preparing for any exam. If you are unaware of the syllabus, you won't know what to study and how to study. Students are advised to go through the entire syllabus of IBSAT before starting preparation and try to cover as much area will the time you have in your hand. Knowledge of exam pattern will give you a brief idea about preparation. It will enhance your capacity of choosing what to study first and what to study hard.

2. Know your strength and weakness

After learning the syllabus and exam pattern you must recognize what are your stronger areas and what are your weaker areas. Practice hard for weaker areas to improve it and just give a subsequent amount of time to revise the areas you are strong in. You must attend those sections and questions in which you are strong. Always keep guaranteed marks in your hand to clear the sectional cut-off. This will build confidence in you and you will have proper time to solve the harder questions calmly without panicking. 

3. Time management

Time management is the key to clear any exam. It won't matter if know the answer to every question if you fail to attempt the right amount of question to get the adequate amount of mark. As mentioned above, answer the easier question then go to the harder ones. But in difficult questions, you must be selective as to which ones to answer and which ones to leave. If you can attend every question then it's good, but if you have an ample amount of time in your hand, you must use it wisely. Time is not your ally during exams. So don’t waste the precious time awarded to you during the course of the exam and utilize it to the fullest.

4. Plan for each section

You must make strategic planning to cover each subject of each section. Make a chart and start a plan about which chapter to cover on what day. By this way, you will be punctual and determined to cover each section properly. This will strengthen all the areas and you may be left with time to revise them a few times.

5. Mock tests

Practice makes a man perfect. Solving mock tests gives you a brief knowledge about the pattern of the question, the level of difficulty of the test, types of question that are asked. It is the best way to practice for any exam. Giving mock tests will improve your problem-solving skills, accuracy, speed, time management, motivation, and much more. Giving mock tests should be one of the top priorities in preparation. Analyze the question pattern and build yourself such to clear IBSAT in one go.

6. Study material

Practicing sample papers and previous year questions can help you get clear on what type of question will be asked and the difficulty level. If you are lucky enough some questions may get repeated as well. Practicing sample questions will also sharpen your writing skills. It is important for students to gather all the necessary study material that will help them prepare for the exam. Few of the important books are mentioned below:

1- Mathematics for MBA entrance exam by R S Aggarwal

2- Quantitative Aptitude for MBA Entrance Examination by Abhijit Guha
