IIFT: Answers and analysis
Get news updates:What's this?
November 24, 2008
"GK section was the real bouncer! How can you expect one to answer four questions to score mere 0.3 marks?"

"Why do the paper setters like DI a lot? First was CAT's and now this is IIFT's."

"Only these (IIFT) guys know how to set a balanced but difficult paper."

IIFT 2008 confirms that the IIFT 2006 has set the trend for the future IIFT entrance examinations. This gives test-takers some relief as the test has gotten more standardised and balanced. However, the test sections will continue to haunt the test-takers' minds because of the level of difficulty.

IIFT 2008 -- An Overview

1. Number of sections: Six

2. No of questions: 150 (same as in IIFT 2007)

3. All questions had only one correct answer and each incorrect answer carried one-fourth negative marks.

4. Variation in weightage, as compared to the previous year

Overall, IIFT 2008 was characterised by extremely difficult General Awareness and Quant sections followed by Reading Comprehension and mainly calculation-based DI section. The sections that were moderate to easy in their difficulty level were English Usage and Reasoning.
