Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share my experience about iegat exam, which I took yesterday. I somehow found it difficult to understand. It's not intuitive. I asked the instructor why do they don't reveal any practise problems on internet, then he said the exam is intuitive. There is no need of any practise for the exam, anyone can take it without preparation. But it's wrong. It's not at all intuitive. For example, if someone asks in which direction does water flow? Anyone can answer that it flows from upstream to downstream. But if someone asks what is the velocity of light? And the answer is 3*10^8 m/s. Is this intuitive? IEGAT is of the second type. There are only two types of questions. One is statistical data based questions, where you will be given some information and statistics related to it. You have to answer the questions based on the information. This one seemed to be fine for me. I became comfortable with this section as the test went on. The second type of question is diagrammatic reasoning using operators and functions. This is really crazy section. I have prepared for many types of diagrammatic reasoning examples previously but I haven't seen a question of this kind. Of course in diagrammatic reasoning, there are many types of questions and not everyone can practice all types. There will be 5 practice questions at the start of the exam. The questions will be easy and you can solve them easily. But the questions you get as you progress makes your day more and more brain eating. Firstly I personally felt the exam is not properly designed. Because for diagrammatic reasoning questions, one should be given with all clear instructions on what to assume and what not to. Whether the operations function in the previous question carryforwards to the next question or not? These type of instructions are not at all mentioned and they simply through you in a pool and ask to swim. I felt this should be changed. Not comparing with GMAT, but when we take GMAT pattern into consideration they prepare the exam with concepts which are equal throughout the world. But here is diagrammatic reasoning the same through the world? One region's people do one pattern and other region's people do another pattern. The definition will not be the same. So at least for diagrammatic reasoning questions, there should be proper guidance and instructions set given to the test taker before the exam. If anyone is planning to take iegat exam then be prepared through "jobtestprep". This is the only source for preparation and it's a paid course. Apart from this there is no other choice. If not, then prepare well for GMAT and have it as a entry option.

All the best!!
