Other than IIFT exam cut off what other factors IIFT consider in shortlisting candidates? Does experience matter? what is seat breakup according to reservations?

Niveditha 18th Nov, 2019

Hello..

The selection procedure for this year IIFT exam will start from 2020 January. The selection procedure has two divisions one is that the marks or the percentile obtained in the exam and the second is the Group Discussion(GD) , essay writing and the Personal Interview(PI).

The shortlisted candidates with the minimum criteria of marks in the exam are called for the GD and PI process. The final stage of admission to the particular college is based on the score and the performance in GD and PI.

The three criteria for the short listed candidates are:

1. essay writing

2. Group discussion

3.Personal interview

Candidates are first given with the essay writing with the word limit of 300 words  and the time given is 20 minutes. In this the writing skills and the vocabulary is tested.

The next round is Group Discussion. Mainly GD is conducted to check how the candidate works in team. The GD topic can be based on the current issues or any abstract topic , so that the candidates must be aware of all the news and issues happening.

Finally the last round is the Personal Interview where the candidates can be asked for any questions related to their work experience, the achievements or why the want to join the particular college.All the interview questions is based on the interviewer.

The criteria for all these are:

IIFT exam score- 65%

Group Discussion - 15%

Personal Interview-20%

The candidates must be well prepared for the exam as well as Group Discussion and Personal Interview because nearly 2000 candidates were short listed for the final round just for 420 seats .

The seat break up for the total of 420 seats is:

7.5% for Schedule Tribe(ST)

5% for person with disability

15% for Schedule Caste(SC)

27% for Non creamy backward classes(NC BC)

10% for economically weaker sections

35.5% for the general class

To avail these reservations candidates have to mention it  in the application form.

The original documents has to be submitted when the candidates are shortlisted and are called for GD and PI

All the best....

Im unable to find my admit card, kindly guide me through this

Rohan Rawat 18th Nov, 2019

Hi there,

Your question is not complete as its not giving any information about the exam with which that admit card is related to.

But still, I can help you in a very general way:

1.Search the soft copy of the admit card in your PC/Lappy/mobile because you must have downloaded it once for sure.

2.If the above mentioned step is not useful: Then try to search for the link through which you can download the admit card foe one more time. (The examination authority keeps the link open till the date before the exam)

3.If the above mentioned step is not useful: Then write a mail to the examination cell or call them on their helpline numbers and tell them about the mishap.

If you will try you best then you will definitely be able to find your admit card.


All the best for the exam (which ever it is ;)



I hope this will help you!!

how do i prepare for iift? are there any books i can refer to or online guides? what about exam pattern? and what about current affairs that are asked and the gk..

Ronak Gala Student Expert 1st Nov, 2019

Manage your time accordingly in the exam. That's where a bit of competition ends as people get confused about how to progress. For this you'll need to solve lots of mock exams to be thorough with the habit. Quant is slightly higher than CAT with the focus on geometry, modern math, compared to basic arithmetic. GK is a separate section and it is focused on business awareness with a sprinkling of static and general GK questions.

Coming to the books part, then solve  50 gears papers a book by Ajay Singh and TK SINHA. For verbal ability and reading comprehension section, Word Power Made Easy’ – by Norman Lewis and ‘ Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for the CAT’ - by Nishit K Sinha.
