So What is a trimester?
Trimester refers to one term of study in IPM. I am sure you must have heard about the semester system that most of the colleges follow. So, a semester is when you divide the yearly course load in 2 equal half calling every half a trimester. In contrast, a trimester is. When you divide the yearly courseload into three equal parts. Most of the B-schools in India follow a trimester system instead of a semester. Each year has 3 terms, so overall IPM has 5 x 3=15 terms.
It’s been exactly a year and three months since I first walked into my IIM Indore classroom. In my second year and an online mode, there are several things that I miss dearly.
Cultural and sports activities, which are a much-needed distraction from the rigour of classroom studies, are my favourite things to happen in the college other than the two fests.
Turning the page on my school life was far from easy. I was never one among those who were eager to get out of their homes and get their first taste of the “real world”. In fact my mother was as eager to send me away as I was reluctant to leave home! Added to that, I was overwhelmed by a constant fear that I would be considered a “dumb NRI” when I get to college.
The IPM is divided into a 3+2 structure, i.e. first three years of undergrad and then two years of the flagship MBA program.

IPMAT is a computer-based online exam with a duration of 2 hours. It consists of three sections comprising both MCQs and integer type questions. There is an allotted time of 40 minutes for each section. Each section will be made available only after 40 minutes and no changes can be made to the previous sections once this time limit has been exceeded.
IPM is set apart because of the diversity of subjects. It enables the students to think, and do so keeping societal progress in mind. It also enables the student to recognize his or her area of interest, since it gives a flavor of everything. Students are given space to experiment.
