IIFT Exam Analysis 2018

PUBLISH DATE 3rd December 2018

The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) is conducting a national level entrance exam for admission to its 2-year fully residential MBA programme. The final selection is done based on Written Test, Group Discussion, Writing Skills Assessment and Interview.

The IIFT exam 2018 (2019-2021) which was conducted from 10 am to 12 noon was tougher than IIFT 2017. The only respite in the test came in the Verbal Ability section.

  • The RC passages were long and tedious, but this was counterbalanced by the questions asked, which were too easy.
  • The grammar section was also on the easier side. I
  • IFT has a rapport of giving an arduous GA section, however it failed to keep up to its name. The questions were relatively doable with respect to the last year's paper.
  • The English section was on similar lines as the IIFT 2017. The LR section was much more difficult in comparison to the previous year's test while the DI was almost of the same difficulty level.
  • The QA can be categorised as slightly difficult in comparison to the last year's paper.

The only structural change that was noticed was the change in the marking scheme in two of the sections. This year each question in the VA section was for 0.75 marks (against 1 mark in the previous year) and each question in the DI section was for 1 mark (against 0.75 marks in the previous year).

There was negative marking of 1/3 for each incorrect answer.

Note: Sectional cut-offs required in all 6 sections. The cut-off for a call for the next round for General category should fall below 30.

It is important to note that since each of these 6 sections had a sectional cut off, the students were bound to be under pressure. We at Gradeup believe that the cut-off in any case will not go beyond 30.

The result of the exam is expected by second week of January 2019. Check comprehensive analysis of IIFT 2018 exam (section-wise) over here.
