IIFT 2021 Result - Road beyond IIFT Shortlist

Do not underestimate your capabilities

The very first thing which you should keep in mind not only for IIFT, but for all the competitive exams, is to never underestimate yourself and your capabilities to ace an exam. IIFT entrance exam is one of the highly competitive exams. The initial competition level includes approximately 50 to 60 thousand candidates, which is reduced to around 2000 candidates and only 400 students get selected finally. Hence, the students should not demoralize themselves at any point of time. Not making it to IIFT doesn’t mean the candidates are not capable enough.

Know your sector / niche

For example- when a candidate applies for IIFT, he must be interested towards pursuing MBA in international business, which is the flagship program of IIFT. So, if one does not get shortlisted by IIFT, S/he can apply in B-schools which offer MBA/PGDM in IB. Some of these schools are FORE School of Management New Delhi, IFIM Business School Bangalore, BIMTECH Greater Noida, and IPE Hyderabad among others. Similarly, if candidates are interested in Media and Communication, they must appear for MICAT 2020 for the admission in MICA. For Rural Management, one can take the INMARSAT and for Social Welfare or HR, appear for TISSNET. Make a choice, according to your area of interest.

Sir/Mam , I would like to know about full syllabus of CAT , XAT ,IIFT ,SNAP section wise like in Quants ,How many chapters are there ,what are they . what are the important topics which comes every year.Same as for other sections also. And what are the similarities in above entrance exams

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Apr, 2020

QA can be categorised into Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Advanced Mathematics. Practise chapter by chapter and develop mental calculations. Like practise more of basic summation, subtraction, fractions and tables. Numbers, Percentage, Profit and Loss, Simple and Compound Interest, Ratio, Proportionality, Time-Distance, Time-Work, Mixtures, Averages, Partnership, Permutation and Combinations, Probability, Set Theory, Progression and Series, Line, Angles, Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Polygon, Circles, Ares, Volume, Height and Distance, Coordinate Geometry, Basic Trigonometry are few important topics.

Because this section involves mathematics and takes most of your time, your focus should be on solving the problems efficiently in the beginning. Even if it takes time, practise upto perfection. Practise as many questions as you can in the conventional way. As and when you get a grip on the subject, you can go for short cuts. Memorise tables, square roots, cube roots, conversion from percent to fraction, etc. Solve sample papers on Mathematics. In the beginning, do not worry about the time it takes. As you practise, you will get the hang of the subject and it will be easier for you


In 10th-64%, 12th-55% ,Grads- pursuing If i manage to get 90-99%ile in CAT,XAT,IIFT,SNAP will i convert any calls from top 10 IIMs and top 10 B-school ?

Adil Suaib Khan Student Expert 13th Apr, 2020

Hii Rohit,

There are a number of other factors which judge whether you will get through even after getting a higher percentile. You subject in graduation subject, what cateogory you fall in. If you get 99 percentile in cat then for sure you'll get calls from some of the CAP IIMs, MDI, IMT and other b schools. This doesn't apply for other bschools in the category like IIFT or even SIBM. But still it still can't be predicted as to you will get a call or not. For your cat prep. You can start off by appearing for a mock test conducted free online and assess your performance that'll help you see and judge the areas you need improvement in and then decide if you need coaching or you can go on by yourself. You can either go for self study or Prepare with a tutor. For english prep. You can start off with Word Power Made easy, do this book twice, don't rush but read it and learn for 30-45 mins everyday. For Quants and LR-Di Arun sharma. Giving a mock a week and analyzing your strengths and weakness in terms of topics, score, percentile score and the time you are spending per question is really important.

Do take mocks religiously and you'll see how much it can affect your preparation in a positive manner.
