The Quantitative Aptitude section of IIFT 2020 was lengthy as always and your performance in this section depended on how much time you decide to spend on this section. If you gave yourself about 25 minutes for this section then around 10 questions with an 80% accuracy was possible, and if 35 minutes were spent on QA then around 12-13 questions with a similar accuracy were possible.

Good Attempt - 10 - 12 questions

Cutoff ~ 28 - 30 marks

Overall As of now, it seems that a score of 120+ would be the cutoff score for IIFT 2020. As we gathered more data on your attempts, our AI-driven prediction engines will be able to give you a more accurate cutoff.

Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

The Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension section was an easy section this year. The 35 questions in this section comprised 16 questions on RCs and the remaining 19 questions from the various topics of Verbal Ability.

A good way to attempt the paper would have been to attempt all the 16 questions on RCs. All of these questions should have been solved as they were easy, just like IIFT RC questions usually are. Most of these questions were factual in nature. When it comes to Verbal Ability, around 8 - 10 questions could have been solved easily without many challenges.

The 2 - 3 questions on Grammar were easy to the extent of being sitters. The 2 Fill in the blanks questions and the questions on ParaJumbles were also easy.

Good Attempts - 25+ questions

Cutoff ~ 30 marks

Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation

This section in IIFT 2020 was moderate to difficult in terms of the level of difficulty. This section represented a dichotomous nature. While the Data Interpretation questions were extremely easy, the Logical Reasoning questions were extremely difficult.

In Data Interpretation, out of the 4 sets, 3 were easily doable. In Logical Reasoning, the sets on circular arrangement and mirror were slightly tricky and were better left alone. The set on set theory and the missing number were of easy-moderate level of difficulty. The input-output type questions also seemed to be easy.

If the section has to be seen in terms of the number of attempts then from Logical Reasoning around 4-5 questions and in Data Interpretation around 8 - 9 questions were extremely good attempts.

This means an overall attempt of about 12 - 14 questions would have been a good attempt.

Good Attempts - 12 - 14 questions

Cutoff ~ 36 marks

Hi mam i have 129 marks in iift i have got a call Sc Category Chances of final convert and composite score for Sc candidate as per previous trend?

Sampriti Student Expert 30th Jan, 2020
IIFT 2020 has released its shortlist and has a total of 420 seats in all the 3 campuses  combined. As per their reservation criteria 15 percent of the total seats are reserved for students falling in SC category. But your final conversion will depend on your performance in the written skill assessment, GD and PI rounds. Moreover you'll also be questioned on your CV from that the Institute requires you to fill once to get a call. If you perform well in those rounds you can easily get through.

Good Luck

I have been shortlisted for second round in iift. there is a mistake in my application .. for category general (bc creamy layer ) it is gen ews. i have sent queries regarding the issue and got no replies. can someone help me with this issue please?

Sampriti Student Expert 27th Jan, 2020
If you've got a call you must attend the selection process. Before they start the process they'll review all your documents as well as application form. So you can ask them there if you can attend the process. They usually let students appear for the process even if there's some mistake.
And in the interview you can try to convince them. If they find you as a desirable candidate there won't be any problem with that.

Good Luck

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.
