IE University's admission test is a paper-based independent screening tool used to screen applicants who are in the process of applying to academic programs. Although it can replace the GMAT, test results for those who are applying for the University's business school, it is different with respect to its content.

## What is ieGAT?

ieGAT was exclusively created by IE as a substitute for the GMAT, GRE or LSAT. This test covers topics such as verbal reasoning, numerical comprehension and abstract reasoning. Typically, these subject matters are pooled together to create a single examination. In this way, different sides of your cerebrum are tested and stressed to work at random times. However, inside this PrepPack™ you will find that the subjects are separated for your convenience. Below you can learn more on each topic.

### Information from One of Our Customers

'Thanks to this test prep I passed the IEGAT! There's a specific order to follow: first, watch the videos/read the manuals, then do the exercises related to each video, then at the end to the Numerical and Verbal drill. You feel way more confident knowing what to expect. Also, this prep helps you develop strategies tackle questions fast. I definitely recommend!'

Rebecca C., Applying to IE

## 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.

## Logical/Abstract Reasoning

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.

## ieGat Test Sample Questions

Still not satisfied? Below are a few ieGat sample questions to further help you in your test preparation. Good luck!

### Free ieGat Test Sample Question 1

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

Explanation:

(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?

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.

### Free ieGat Test Sample Question 3

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?

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.

## How to Prepare for ieGAT

IE advises that there is no need to prepare for the ieGAT simulator as the exam is looking at your ability to process information and think strategically.

However, studies have shown that preparing for these tests provides benefits when it comes to taking the exam, including increased confidence, the ability to answer questions quicker and more accurately, and ultimately a higher result on the test.

If you are looking for practice materials for IE's admission test, you've reached the right place. Our practice packs can help you sharpen your reasoning skills, with timed tests in a variety of cognitive fields, as they appear on the test: numerical, verbal, and non-verbal reasoning tests.
