IBSAT Exam – Structure, Opportunities, Advantages, and Prospects

The Indian examination system is designed in such a way that it tests a student’s skills at different levels like – subject knowledge, practical applicability, and aptitude. There are two types of examinations that are used to test a student’s knowledge and understanding –

  • Subjective – Short and Long Answer Type Questions & Answers
  • Objective – Multiple Choice Type Questions & Answers

The objective type of test is a popular way of assessing students’ knowledge at the graduate and postgraduate level. It is helpful, especially when lakhs of them apply for a few thousand seats. With the advent of digitalization, most objective type examinations have become online now. In the management entrance space, there are close to fifty management entrance tests alone that are conducted at the state and national level by B-schools (and state/national level testing authorities) across India. It becomes quite a challenge for the students to decide which entrance exam to write and which all to skip and whether a particular exam is worth appearing for or no.

Every one is not cut to crack an exam like CAT or XAT which are quite challenging. But should that stop you from your dream to pursue an MBA or PGDM from a coveted college? The answer is NO!

An exam that can still keep you strong in the game is the IBSAT exam. We discuss in detail the features, advantages, opportunities, and prospects after the IBSAT exam.
