IIFT Analysis by T.I.M.E. 2023 - Exam Overview
T.I.M.E. will release a detailed analysis for IIFT 2023 on exam day itself. Through IIFT exam analysis by T.I.M.E., candidates can know the parameters and expected overall and sectional cutoff for IIFT as estimated by the experts of T.I.M.E.
As per previous year's IIFT TIME analysis, the duration of the exam was two hours with no sectional time limit. There were only four sections in IIFT 2022 as against six in earlier years. The exam interface was different from that of the mock test shared by NTA and involved a lot of horizontal and vertical scrolling which would affect a test taker’s experience. However, it could have been mitigated by just viewing the paper in the question paper mode or by hiding the question palette. Candidates must know the exam pattern of IIFT 2023 for more details as mentioned below.
IIFT Exam Pattern 2023
IIFT 2023 will be conducted for admission to the prestigious Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) located in Delhi, Kolkata, and Kakinada (AP). The test will be conducted across various IIFT test centres in the country in the CBT (computer-based test) format. The duration of the exam will be two hours with no sectional time limit.
There will be four sections in IIFT this year as per expectations.
Number of Questions
Marks per Question
Negative marks per question
Section A (Quantitative Reasoning)
Section B (Reading Comprehension & Verbal Ability)
Section C (Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning)
Section D (General Awareness)
Previous Year's IIFT Exam Analysis by T.I.M.E.
As the exam analysis of IIFT is not yet released, for reference candidates can check the IIFT previous year's analysis below.
IIFT Analysis by T.I.M.E 2022 - Section A (Quantitative Reasoning)
A detailed analysis of the sections of the paper is given below:
The section was higher in difficulty with lengthier questions as compared to last year's paper. The section had a total of 25 questions from multiple areas, though arithmetic appeared to rule the roost. Test takers would have noticed a huge surge in the number of questions from arithmetic like Percentages, SI-CI, Time & Work, Time & Distance, etc. The distribution is as given below:
Number of Questions
The section had some really difficult questions. A good candidate would have been able to attempt around 9-10 questions in QA. The cut-off in this section is expected to be 14-16 marks.
IIFT Analysis by T.I.M.E 2022: Section B (Reading Comprehension & Verbal Ability)
This section was very similar to the last year's pattern. So, students who have prepared with TIME and took their mock IIFT exams would have been prepared well for this year's exam!
This section consisted of 16 questions on RCs and 19 on Verbal Ability with a total of 35 questions. There were four RC passages with four questions each. Most of the questions were Inference based or Specific Detail based. The Inference questions, however, were not very difficult to answer.
Following is a brief description of the RC part:
Approximate Word Count
Why and how social influences work / Nudging
Cultural evolution and its impact on economy
Conservatives vs Liberals approach to governance
Plastic ban and its impact on other industries
Passage 1 was clearly the lengthiest. It would have taken students close reading of at least 50% of the passage to understand what the passage was about! Such a long passage with just 4 questions to it would surely discourage students from attempting it, and it should not have been attempted.
Passages 2, 3, and 4 were shorter. Some of the questions associated with these passages were a bit tricky.
The questions in the Verbal Ability segment were an assorted mix predominantly on Vocabulary, with Grammar and Para Jumbles the following suit.
Here is a snapshot of the Verbal Ability part:
Number of Question
Incorrect question tag
Identify correct sentences
Meanings of root words
Match words with meanings
Match meanings with words
Answering the Grammar questions should have been a cakewalk as the choices were also not close either.
The Vocabulary questions could have been killers for students who did not focus on this part, but those students who prepared Vocabulary with us would have noticed many familiar words.
Of the three Para Jumble questions, two were very tricky and one was of moderate difficulty. Students would have had to rely more on logical thinking than on grammatical connectives.
Expected sectional cut-off: 32-34
IIFT Analysis by T.I.M.E 2022: Section C- Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning
This section had a total of 30 questions with 16 questions on DI and 14 on LR. The distribution of the questions is as below:
Type of set
Number of questions
Line + Bar Graph
Pie chart + Table
Circular Arrangement (Analytical Reasoning)
The DI sets were very calculation-intensive, which made the sets lengthier to solve. The LR sets were relatively easier than the DI sets. The overall difficulty level of this section can be classified as moderate-difficult. The IIFT cut-off was around 20 to 22 marks.
IIFT 2022 Analysis by T.I.M.E: Section D (General Awareness)
This year the GK section was easy. This section, apart from the regular MCQs, also had to match the following type of questions. Students who avidly read the Newspapers would have been able to handle this section with some ease. The questions were from diverse topics like Personalities, Sports, Brands, Geography, Space science, Awards, Corporate entities, Government Schemes, etc. Out of 20 questions, Static GK had 11 questions and 9 questions were based on Current Affairs.
The cut-off in this section is expected to be around 6 to 7.5 marks.

Indeed, it is conceivable, yet it will be very troublesome. You get focused on a variety on the off chance that you're a non-engineer.
Ensure you have an exceptionally high percentile.
Business colleges like FMS don't consider your school marks. A portion of the other business colleges gives less weightage to your past scholastics. IIIFT doesn't give a lot of weightage to past scholastics.
You might decide to get some work insight before applying as that will help your profile.
By the day's end, assuming you get a high percentile, that by itself will do the trick to get you a meeting call. At the point when inside the room, it is up to you to persuade the specialists that you have a place there in that business college.
I am a Senior Software Developer at a very reputed product based company. Would full time MBA form IIFT be a good idea ?

I got 82.5 percentile for IIFT 2022 and i have been shortlisted for PI round. But I have heard that only those above 98 percentile will get into IIFT..so should i appear for PI?
I would like to request you to kindly mention your category because that can also be the reason for your shortlisting as you would have cleared the category wise cut off .
But if you are from general category i would advise you kindly prepare for your pi very sincerely because that's the eliminating round where maximum candidates suffer rejection. Even high percentile scorers suffer rejection.
I have 56% in 12 , 74%in 10th and 70% in UG . Am I eligible for IIFT ?
According to the Acadmic Eligibility criteria for IIFT the aspirant must possess Bachelor’s degree of minimum three years’ duration in any discipline with at least 50 percent aggregate (45 per cent for SC/ST and PwD candidates) from a recognised university
So, Yes you are eligible

can i aim for IIM if i have 72% in 12,72% in 10th and 79% in UG (commerce) and i come under EWS , is it possible to get call from any IIM ?and if yes what percentile should i look for in CAT 2022, and Same for IIFT and FMS
It is true that more than 90+ percentage in academics will get call from IIM if they score 90+ percentile in CAT but Average academic record is not a barrier in getting IIM.your marks is not good but not that poor either try to score more than 99 percentile to get call from top IIMs.if you score 97 percentile you can get call from old IIM'S like IIM lucknow,IIFT,FMS DELHI.
Instead of pondering over which college you get focus more on your studies to score as much as you can to get top b schools.
