IBSAT 2024: Mock Test

The IBSAT 2024 exam will be conducted in last week of December 2024.  A good way to complete your last-minute revision is to write IBSAT mock tests. The IBSAT official website has links to six mock tests that students can attempt. You will be provided with an individual and overall score after you click on ‘Submit’ along with the answer key. There is no percentile calculated for the mock tests.

MBA aspirants who are appearing in IBSAT in coming December 2024 should ensure that they have gone through the Mock tests positively with a great strike rate and in this regard, you should be aware that RCs are likely to be different and difficult to answer. There would be 140 questions to be answered in 120 minutes without any negative marking but please remain cautious and ensure that you are opting out for the correct answer as per your working.

What is IBSAT?

ICFAI Business School Aptitude Test or popularly known as IBSAT, is an online exam conducted by ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education (a Deemed to be University) for the various MBA and PGPM ( Academic year 2025-27) courses it offers at 9 different campuses and few other MBA colleges across India. The details of the ICFAI campuses and the courses it offers are:

Program Offered  Duration IBS Campus Location
Masters of Business Administration (MBA) 2 Year Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Dehradun, Jaipur
Post Graduate Program in Management (PGPM) 2 Year Ahmedabad, Gurugram, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune

Out of 140 questions, 30 questions with equal marks will be for Reading Comprehension and aspirants should note that in IBSAT which will be conducted in the last week of December 2024 there can be a surprise element with a more tougher RC.

Students should know that since in businesses, communication is very vital for both internal and external customers hence, as would be Brand manager, you are also expected to be excellent in language usage, that's why you are tested in RC. 

Your vocabulary is crucial for answering correct answers in RC. Enrich your vocabulary with daily practice and read editorials of newspapers. Be concerned about RC in IBSAT 2024 as lesser attempts in RC can spoil the party.
