IIFT 2018: Detailed Exam Pattern analysis and cut-off
Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) conducted the Admission Test 2019-2021 for admission into its two-year program in International Business, on Sunday, December 02, 2018. The test was conducted across various centers in the country between 10 am and 12 noon. Differential marking continued to be there and the penalty for every incorrect answer was 1/3rd of the total marks assigned to the question.
The total number of questions continued to be 114.
There were six sections and each section carried a sectional cut-off. The details of the sections are as follow:
*Cutoff for General category students is most likely to be in the range of 31-33 marks. The corresponding figures for NC/OBC and SC/ST/PWD should be around 26-28 and 23-24 marks respectively.
An attempt of 4-5 would be very good and students who had attempted just about 2-3 questions with 100% accuracy should sail through the cutoff
Anyone who has attempted around 10-11 questions in half an hour with 85% accuracy would have done very well.
Students attempting 8 questions with 50% accuracy would easily sail through the cutoff.
IIFT went back to a predictable pattern this year. The ‘phrase-clause’ based questions were missing this year. The word jumble questions continued to be there for the second consecutive year. The jumble word questions were not easy to identify. Only one question looked obvious. The para-jumble, fill in the blank, and grammar based questions were easy. Accuracy in these questions will determine one’s performance in the paper.
A detailed breakup of the section is given below:
Students would end up not attempting more than 10-12 questions with about 85% accuracy in 30 mins.
