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.

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