IE GAT Global Admission TEST (ieGAT Dubai) Preparation Course Dubai Abu Dhabi Sharjah UAE.
The IE Global Admissions Test (ieGAT)* has been developed as a means of determining a candidate’s ability to make challenging, high-level decisions in a high-stakes environment. You will receive additional information once you register for the Test.
IE GAT is a Practical Exam (iegat is a IE Masters Admission Test)
Rather than academic material that can be studied prior to examination, the test presents real world situations found in everyday professional life that help determine a test taker’s ability to process information and think logically. No preparation is required.
The ieGAT scoring system is tailored to reflect the profile of our successful graduates. Scoring is based using a comparative Gauss curve to match abilities and skills to those of top students across all of IE´s different programs.
The exam consists of different tasks: verbal comprehension & reasoning, numerical comprehension & reasoning and logical-abstract reasoning. Questions presented randomly throughout the exam require participants to switch rapidly from one line of thinking to another.
IE’s Test vs. GMAT
While the GMAT requires preliminary knowledge in specific mathematical fields – algebra, geometry, probability and more – ieGAT simulation test does not require these requisites but rather the basic arithmetic concepts including the four operations, percentages and ratios. It highly resembles the aptitude tests used by employers, with slight changes in content and context. Therefore, you are likely to encounter similar tasks that are given at assessment centres and online screening tests, i.e. numerical critical reasoning, verbal critical reasoning and logical reasoning.
IE Global Admissions Test (ieGAT)
The IE admissions test is designed to determine your ability to make management-style decisions under pressure. There are three types of question on the ieGAT: verbal, numerical and diagrammatical. There is no set order to the test, with all three types of question mixed together, and the first two types frequently mixed together within the same set of questions. The test lasts for 80 minutes and becomes progressively harder throughout the test. The questions are characterised in three ways which you can view in our test examples. Read on to see the breakdown.
Verbal Comprehension and Reasoning
These are verbal reasoning questions. The test contains a passage for you to read and understand before answering two questions on the text. These questions determine your comprehension of written professional English. The content of these texts can often be on economic topics such as unemployment or GDP. Questions are multiple choice, and for some questions, you may be asked to provide more than one answer from the list.
Numerical Comprehension, Reasoning and Calculation
These questions are numerical reasoning questions. Information is presented in graphs and data analysis. You need to understand the information presented in this format, think quickly, process information and make quick calculations. This section does not measure your mathematical ability. The questions are based on the datasets in the question, and the most common types of questions are based on percentages and ratios.
This test is a Diagrammatical, Abstract or Logical Reasoning test where you are given a series of shapes and a symbol representing an operation. Based on the shape before the symbol and after the symbol, your task is to identify the role of the symbol. To do this successfully, you need to have strong visualisation skills, and be able to think of multiple shapes at one time. You must also be able to follow the instructions set to come to the right answer.
The ieGAT, IE University’s admissions test, is designed to determine a candidate’s ability to make management-style decisions under pressure. There are three types of question on the ieGAT: verbal, numerical and diagrammatic.
- A diagnostic test, to help you focus your studying and save time. It is recommended to take this test before continuing to the rest of the Course.
- Numerical Reasoning – Use the Numerical Drills and Numerical Reasoning practice materials to study for this type of question.
- Verbal Reasoning – Use the Verbal – More styles practice materials to study for this type of question.
- Diagrammatic – Use the Diagrammatic Reasoning and Matrices practice materials to study for this type of question.
- IE Numerical/Verbal – One practice drill simulating the numerical and verbal questions on the ieGAT.
- Study Guides and Video Tutorials for additional practice help.
To achieve maximum results on your IE Global Admissions Test, we recommend following these steps for success:
- Start with the Numerical Critical Reasoning practice tests under Numerical Reasoning. Take a few tests and determine your weak areas (e.g. percentages, table/graph interpretation).
- Turn to the Study Guides and Video Tutorials in order to refresh your basic arithmetic skills and other important numerical concepts.
- Go to the Numerical Drills section and practice the topics you need to improve on.
- Return to the Numerical Reasoning section and practice more tests until you feel comfortable with all question types.
- Under Verbal – More Styles, take a few of the Critical Reasoning and Critical Thinking tests. These will help you understand the basic principles underlying verbal reasoning questions.
- Continue with the last two tests in this section for practice analyzing longer passages with more complex verbal information.
- Go to the IE Numerical/Verbal section to practice four sets of texts with ten numerical and verbal questions each. This session simulates the question types and format seen on the real IE test.
- Thoroughly read through all of the answer explanations. Even if you solved a certain question correctly, you might learn a new strategy or way of thinking.
- Go back to the corresponding practice material if you still wish to strengthen certain areas.
- Begin with the tests in the Diagrammatic Reasoning section. These will help you become familiar with the different types of diagrammatic reasoning questions: Swift/Single, Reasoning #1 and #2, Thinking #1 and #2, Diagramming.
- Go to the Matrices section to practice this specific style. Turn to the Inductive Reasoning (Matrices) study guide for more explanations.
- You may find additional information and tips in the Inductive Reasoning video tutorial.
Our Trainer can be accessed through two different types of processes:
Step-by-Step – In this training setting, you will receive feedback and explanations upon completing each question. This setting is especially useful for practising difficult questions.
Timed – This setting simulates test-like conditions by allowing you to answer questions under the same time constraints as the actual test. Upon test completion, a score report will be displayed.
While solving many questions is beneficial, prefer quality over quantity. Try to learn from each question you encounter, and remember – questions on the real ieGAT will be all new. The most important thing is to acquire the skills and get familiarised with the test in order to maximise your abilities.
