Is iift consider your past academics record
since you did not mention any particular course I would give you details about iift mba admission process. iift considers to be an Indian best academic institute which offers two years master of business administration course. it has delhi and kolkata campus. admission is based on the entrance exam conducts by NTA iift ADMISSION TEST. the test comprises of the questions from gk, general ability, quantitative aptitude, verbal reasoning, english. based on entrance exam score candidaates are shortlisted and called for gd and personal interview rounds. however selection would be based on candidates performance and interpersonal skills in gd or Pi rounds. however there is little impact of past academic records.
hope you may understand.
3.5 months are enough to crack CAT and IIFT exams ? Can anyone suggest me the study plan ? I am targetting maximum 97% in CAT and 145 marks in IIFT.
Sectional Division of Overall Preparation
Know your strengths along with weaknesses
Accept the importance of previous year question papers
Coaching or self-preparation
If you are preparing for CAT exam on a serious note, there won't be any problem preparing for IIFT too, provided you know the correct strategy for it! only the strategy of how you should play in the required format changes. So is the case with IIFT and other similar entrance exams apart from the CAT.
Firstly, from this year onwards, IIFT is conducted by NTA, so for the first time this year, IIFT will be conducted online just like any other MBA entrance exams! So there are two pros mainly I can think of -
- We don't have to spend our time circling the answers.
- We don't have to separately get accustomed to the paper based format from now.
This exam mainly consists of six sections -
- Reading Comprehension
- Verbal Ability
- Data Interpretation
- Logical Reasoning
- Quantitative Ability
Hope it helps
Thank you & Good Luck!!!
Which one is better , IIM Ranchi or IIFT Kolkata?
In my opinion IIM RANCHI is far better than iift kolkata because tag matters in life. If you get passed out from IIM then beleive me you can work in abroad easily. But in case of IIFT KOLKATA you will not get that reputation. Also placement statistics is far better than iift kolkata and high chances of getting selected as CEO of the company directly.
ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR FUTURE!!!
