Admissions to IBA
Master's Admissions are held usually at the end of May/early June. BBA Admissions are held usually at the end of June/early July. BS admissions are held in July and in November.

The admission process is composed of three main steps:
1. Aptitude Test
2. Interview
3. Group Discussion
(Anees Hussain prepares students for all the three steps above)

Test Preparation at Anees Hussain
Our IBA test preparation program is the most popular of all our programs. And there is good reason: We have prepared an overwhelming majority of students obtaining admission to the IBA every year. At Anees Hussain we focus on motivating students by making education fun, yet competitive.

The IBA course is conducted in a classroom format. Students from different walks of life come together and work as a group towards a single goal. Our environment facilitates learning via teacher-student interaction, study groups and individual attention for weaker students.

Our program not only offers a comprehensive preparation for the aptitude test, covering all sections namely Math, English, and General Knowledge, but also extensive Interview and Group Discussion preparation, which means that our students are the best prepared.

Salient features of our methodology:
Diagnostic Test
Timed class activities
Teacher Evaluations
Full-length Tests
Actual Past Paper Practice

Material
Our expertise in test preparation is facilitated by the years of hard work put into our study material. It has been selected and compiled from a variety of sources, including work sheets developed on each subject by Anees Hussain himself, regular up-to-date books from the different publishers and re-creations of the actual tests themselves.

About the Test
In an effort to deter test preparation, IBA has consistently changed its test pattern each year and does not provide a sample paper with the prospectus. Hence, students applying to the college have no idea of what to expect in the test. We prepare our students for over 16 different sections in Math, Verbal, General Knowledge and IQ, providing students a comprehensive coverage of all areas that may be tested. Our experience in the IBA test pattern and consistent recreation of old IBA tests has ensured our position as the NUMBER ONE test preparation center for IBA.

Success Rate
More than 2,750 of our students have gone to the IBA SINCE 1990.

195 of our students were admitted to IBA in 2006
257 of our students were admitted to IBA in 2007
204 of our students were admitted to IBA in 2008
222 of our students were admitted to IBA in 2009
184 of our students were admitted to IBA in 2010
