ieGAT Admissions Test

Inside our specialized PrepPack™ we have two versions of the test. One is a printable paper version, while the other you can take on the web. Each test includes 20 mathematical reasoning and basic mathematical drills made up of tables, graphs, percentages, averages, four operations, and more. Other subjects on the ieGAT are presented separately depending on the format. Thus, in the paper version, you will find 6 verbal tests, 9 diagrammatic, and 1 extra IE mathematical and verbal test. Meanwhile, the computerized version is complete with 1 verbal test with 3 additional mathematical drills that include geometry and cut-e-style tests broken into 5 verbal ability tests, 6 mathematical ability and 2 inductive-logical thinking (CLS) tests.

ieGAT vs. GMAT

The primary difference between the GMAT and ieGAT tests is that the GMAT has separate subject tests which progressively increase in difficulty. The ieGAT meanwhile is a combined verbal, mathematical, and diagrammable test. Furthermore, the GMAT requires deeper study. For instance, the GMAT consists of extrapolating preliminary knowledge in specific mathematical fields such as algebra, geometry, probability, and more. The ieGAT meanwhile is more laid back. Thus, simply knowing basic arithmetic concepts such as the four operations, percentages, and ratios will help you in the long run when taking this test.

IE Global Admissions Test for Jobseekers

In addition to using the ieGAT for college admissions, it can also be used during job assessments. Typically, this is done for management positions, the IE admissions test is designed to determine your ability to make judgement calls under pressure. Find the different question types below.

Verbal Comprehension and Reasoning

Let’s begin the quest of understanding test questions with verbal reasoning. Each question contains a significant passage to focus on and process. It’s your job to understand the text before proving your comprehension skills by answering two questions. The passage topics will include economics, unemployment, or GDP – so if you love any of these subjects, you’re in luck! Note that some questions are tricky, asking you to provide more than one answer from the answer list.

Mathematical Comprehension, Reasoning, and Calculation

The mathematical reasoning questions are information-based presented by graphs and data analysis. Your mission is to understand even the trickling bits of information presented, think about it, quickly process, and formulate a calculation. Don’t sweat, this section does not measure your mathematical ability rather the questions are based on the datasets, commonly shown in percentages and ratios.

Logical/Abstract Reasoning

Logical and abstract reasoning tests are filled to the core with shapes and symbols. The purpose is to creatively use images to determine how well you will perform during a related operation. During the questions, your task is to identify the role of the symbol. To do this successfully, you need to have strong visualization skills, and be able to hold multiple shapes in the forefront of your mind.

The ieGAT is offered in two formats:

1. Pen & Paper Format

The test begins with four economic articles, each of which is followed by nine questions. These include a mixture of both verbal comprehension and numerical reasoning questions. All questions are multiple-choice and include four options to choose from. Note that sometimes there is more than one correct answer.

In the second section of the exam, you are given logical reasoning questions (similar to those found in the online version of the test). There are approximately six questions per section. There are four numerical/verbal reasoning sections and four logical thinking sections.

In total, the test contains 60 questions, and has a time constraint of 80 minutes.


2. Online Format

You are to answer true, false, or cannot say. Without breaks, the test takes approximately 87 minutes. There are seven sections, each with their own instructions and time constraints:

 Graphic Numerical Reasoning
   36 questions ⋙ 15 minutes ⋙ Deduce graph and its qualities from given instructions.

✔ Verbal Reasoning
   49 questions ⋙ 12 minutes ⋙ Deduce company and its qualities from given passage.

✔ Applied Numeracy
   20 questions ⋙ 16 minutes ⋙ Deduce from given problem factors such as area and distance.

✔ Deductive Logical Thinking

ieGAT Test Sample Questions

Still unsatisfied? Below are a few test samples to further develop your ieGAT skills. Good luck!


Free ieGAT Test Sample Question 1

Please select one correct answer:

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is: RMTA --> (1) --> MTA


(3) drops the last letter.

Since (3) drops the last letter that means (2) swaps the last two letters.

Since (2) swaps the last two letters then (1) drops the first letter.

Free ieGAT Test Sample Question 2

In 2010, the total number of pages ever indexed in Beta’s servers was 8 times the sum of pages added in the two previous years. What was the approximate ratio between Beta’s total indexed pages by the end of 2009 and Beta's total indexed pages by the end of 2008?

Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/AnswerQuestionBR.cshtml)
Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is A.

As indicated by the first sentence, we must figure the sum of added pages in 2008 and 2009. Looking at the second graph, we get 2,400 + 2,000 = 4,400 million.

The next step is to multiply 4,400 million by 8, giving us a sum of 35,200 million. This sum marks Beta’s total number of indexed pages from the beginning. In order to calculate total indexed pages per year, we must reduce the annual addition of pages from 35,200, as follows:

2009's total indexed pages: 2010 total - 2010's additions = 35,200-4,000 = 31,200.

2008's total indexed pages: 2009 total - 2009's additions = 31,200-2,000 = 29,200.

Thus, The ratio is: 31,200/29,200 = 312/292 ~1.07.

Read the following passage:

Among students preparing for final exams, some rely only on the technique of short, frequent study sessions to improve studying results, and others observe only the natural learning sequence of moving from general issues to specific issues, also known as "top-down" learning. Those who rely only on the natural learning sequence get higher final exam scores than do those who rely only on short, frequent study sessions, so the natural learning sequence is more effective than are short, frequent study sessions in helping students improve their final exam scores.

What is said on natural learning technique?

Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/AnswerQuestionBR.cshtml)
Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is (B).

According to the passage, "the natural learning sequence [is] of moving from general issues to specific issues, also known as "top-down" learning", as Answer (B) states. (A) and (C) are not mentioned in this context at all. As for answer (D) – the passage mentions that this technique is MORE effective, not less.
