The IIFT 2014 exam concluded successfully at 12 pm. No technical glitch was reported at any of the IIFT2014 exam centers.  About 50,000 candidates appeared for the exam, which started at 9:30 am. According to the test takers, there has been no surprise in the exam and the pattern followed the prescribed structure.


The overall difficulty level of the exam was moderate to difficult, with QA and DI on the tougher side. Verbal ability was moderate as expressed by majority of the students. DI was a bit lengthy but there was no section, which was exceptionally difficult for the test takers.


As IIFT 2014 ends, Careers360 brings you the reactions from students across the centres.


Sujata Roy, New Delhi


Overall the exam was okay. I found Quant to be difficult. Actually I took some time with certain questions. But, Verbals was good.


Sharad, New Delhi


Quant was a bit difficult. Verbals and GK were easy. It was tougher than CAT.


Shakeel, New Delhi


Quants and DI were definitely tough. LR was okay. DI was very lengthy. IIFT was definitely tougher than CAT.


Vineeta, New Delhi

It was lengthy paper. I could not attempt Quant properly. Verbal was okay.


Nishanth, New Delhi


It went better than what I had expected. The paper was smooth. For me, Quant was easy. I had to struggle a bit in Verbals. General Knowledge, of course, depends on how alert one is. Overall it was a good paper.


Nikhil, New Delhi


It was moderate. Not too tough. Not too easy. Quant was tricky. But it was manageable. Verbals was okay.


Bhawani, New Delhi


This was my first attempt. My exam was okay. I got stuck with some Quant questions but otherwise there was no such issue. Verbals was okay. But again, it I’l know best when the results are out!


Rajiv, New Delhi


My exam was okay. Quant was lengthy but Verbals was good. If you read enough current affairs, then you would find GK easy too. It was a fine paper as expected.

You need atleast more than 105+ marks to get a good percentile and almost 138 to secure a call from any good college taking part in IIFT entrance test.you will have around 40 percentile according to previous year trends which is very low.

Do we need mathematics subject in class 12. To do IIFT.

Saloni Singh 3rd Jan, 2020
Hello Himanshu,
Hope you are doing well.
No, there's nothing like you need to have mathematics in your 10+2 course as eligibility criteria for getting admission at Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT).
The only academic eligibility criteria for IIFT is a graduate degree with a minimum aggregate marks of 50%.
You can check more details about the institute at the link I am mentioning below.
Please check :
Hope it's helpful to you !
All the best.
Thankyou .
