IIFT 2018 Student Reactions
Akash - I found both Logical Reasoning and Quantitative sections to be comparatively easy, provided you remember all the required formulas. It was simple maths in the Quantitative section.
The third section comprised of graphs which were quite lengthy and tough; required concepts to solve. To talk about the English sections, passages were lengthy but easy to comprehend. I would rate the difficulty level of the test to be moderate to difficult.
Amaan - This is the first time I appeared for IIFT exam. From the test paper analysis point of view, I would say this paper was a bit different from last two years’ paper. The Logical Reasoning(LR) was easy. Candidates would fare well if they choose the section sequence judiciously. Data Interpretation (DI) was easier as compared to the Quantitative section. I appeared for CAT 2017 and most probably I would be appearing for TISSNET 2017 as well.
Tarun - There were six different sections which made the paper a bit lengthy. The sectional cutoffs would be different for the same reason. There was commotion outside the examination premises, but if one is focussed towards the test, will not get affected.
Deepika - It is all about time management. One should solve the General Awareness section first followed by Reading Comprehension (RC) and rest of the sections. DI section was easy and I chose to solve DI at the end.
Netra - I am not sure of my scores, but I have fared quite well. I am not expecting very high scores but sure to crack the sectional cutoffs.
