In LRDI, there was a good contrast as the DI questions were easy while the LR sets were difficult. QA, as always, was a lengthy section and an attempt of 10-12 questions in this section would have been a good attempt.

Quantitative Aptitude

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

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.
