Similar to last year, IIFT 2015 for most of the students was of Moderate to difficult level, with DI and LR toughest. One of the IIFT 2015 Test taker, a working executive, Naman said, “The overall difficulty level was tough. I found the Data Interpretation, Logical Reasoning and Quantitative Analysis sections to be tough. English was quite easy. GK was of moderate difficulty level”.

Commenting about the overall exam experience and the difficult section, another candidate Mayank said, “I had appeared for the exam last year as well and comparatively the difficulty level was easier this year. The total number of questions was 124. The GK and Verbal Ability sections were easily attemptable. The Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation areas were toughest”.

 

Let us now have a look at the IIFT 2015 Section wise Analysis.

 

Quantitative Ability

This section had 22 questions with 1 mark each for the question. This section was of moderate to difficult level. However, students with engineering background found this section to be easy and doable. An engineer background MBA aspirant, Manjit from Delhi, said,The overall exam pattern was moderate to tough. I am from B.Tech background so I found the Quant section to be manageable and DI and Verbal section to be tough. But still I have attempted around 100 questions accurately and hoping to clear the cutoff”.

 

Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation

 

This year the most time consuming and the difficult section was LR and DI. This section was divided into two parts- Part 1 and 2 with a total 38 questions. Part 1 had 20 questions on topics like caselets, bar graphs, pie charts and table interpretations etc.; whereas Part 2 has 18 questions on topics like comparisons, deductions, and coding-decoding etc.

 

As per the marking scheme Part 1 was of 0.75 marks and Part 2 was of 1.00 marks with a negative marking of 1/3rd of the allotted marks.  

Sidhartha, a test taker, said, “The sections DI and LR were tough. The Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation areas were tricky and time-consuming. So we had to be fast while attempting this section. I am hoping for good scores in this section”.

 

 

English Comprehension

 

This section again has two parts; 1- Reading Comprehension, 2- Verbal Ability, with 16 and 20 questions respectively. This section, compared to others was of Easy to Moderate level, and most securing as well. The section had passages, on the basis of which the candidates had to answer the given questions. The verbal ability part had questions related to grammar, prepositions, analogy, phrases, fill in the blanks etc.

 

Arijit from Uttar Pradesh said, “English was the easiest section and also the most scoring. I was able to complete this section before my allotted time”.

 

General Knowledge

 

This is the most important section of IIFT, which makes it different from other MBA entrance exams. Unlike previous year, this year, GK was of moderate to difficult level for many students. With total 28 questions with 0.50 marks, this section forced students to think and answer. Mostly the questions were from latest happenings around the world, compared to the static GK. Agreeing on the same, a test taker, Stuti said, “The question topics of the GK area was mostly from Current Affairs and lesser on Static GK. The topics included Banks, Name of CES, and Import-Export. It was a lengthy paper and for me, GK and DI were the toughest sections”.

 

IIFT 2015 Expected Cutoff

 

IIFT 2015 Cutoff will depend on certain factors like difficulty of the exam, the number of test takers, total number of questions etc.  The cutoff in 2014 was 39.5 marks, and it is expected that it will be on similar lines as that of last years. The exam was of tough difficulty level and had 124 questions from 4 sections. The following table brings to you the section wise scores that were allocated in IIFT 2015 entrance exam.

Sir/Maam OBC NC Candidate here, my marks are as follows, Overall=136, |QA-30, VARC-77, DILR-23, GK-6 |. can I expect any call??

SAKSHI KULSHRESHTHA 14th Dec, 2019

The official cutoff for IIFT has not been released yet by NTA. Although the experts have been expecting a cutoff of around 120-130 for the general category students. You seem to be clearing the sectional cutoff of QA, VARC and DILR easily. The cutoff for GK would probably remain around your score. So for OBC NC with a score of 136, I believe you have a good chance of getting a call from all the three campuses of IIFT. All the best.

I have received a score of 99 marks in the IIFT examination. Can I expect a call from IIFT for the second round for any of their campuses?

SAKSHI KULSHRESHTHA 14th Dec, 2019

The official cutoff for IIFT has not been released yet by NTA. Although the expected cutoff is said to be somewhere between 105 to 120, according to the various different sources, for general category students. With a score of less than 100, I am sorry to say that there are almost no chances of getting a call from any of the 3 IIFT campuses this year.
