The IRMA Social Awareness Test (IRMASAT) is conducted by the Institute of Rural management Anand (IRMA), located at Anand, Gujarat for admission into the Post Graduate Diploma in Rural Management (PGDRM) programme.
This year the exam is to be conducted in the month of February – from 11th till the 23rd of the month at IRMA campus. It will be followed by Group Activity (GA) and Personal Interview (PI) on the same day.
A graduate from any discipline, with a minimum of 15 years (10+2+3) of education, having 50 per cent (45 per cent for SC/ST/DAP (Differently Abled Person)) aggregate marks at the graduation level can apply for admission.
