IIFT 2018: How was Quantitative Ability?

This section continued to be verbose and students would end up not attempting more than 10-12 questions with about 85% accuracy in 30 mins. As always the weightage to Geometry and Modern Math was higher compared to other entrance exams.

IIFT 2018: Expert's take on English

The ‘phrase-clause’ based questions were missing this year. The word jumble questions continued to be there for the second consecutive year. The vague etymological origin questions reappeared after a year’s gap. Overall, the VA section was tough. The jumble word questions were not easy to identify. Only one question looked obvious. The analogy questions were completely weird and so were the word-matching questions.

IIFT 2018: Cut-off to be around 31-33 marks

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. The cutoff for ST might go lower if number of applicants are lesser

Reading Comprehension lengthier, expert's take

Reading Comprehension went back to being the ‘IIFT-kind-lengthy’ this year. There were five passages. Four of these had three questions each and one had four questions. The passages were from interesting areas. However, majority of the passages were taken from academic sources.

General Awareness slightly easier

The GK section was slightly easier than last year with about 6-8 questions considered doable through elimination alone. Students attempting 8 questions with 50% accuracy would easily sail through the cutoff.

IIFT 2018: Expert's take on Logical Reasoning

Overall a time-consuming section again. While the circular arrangement and Matrix sets (friends and hotels) were easy, the other sets were time consuming. Anyone who has attempted around 10-11 questions in half an hour with 85% accuracy would have done very well.

Data Interpretation

IIFT continued to show its favouritism to calculation intensive DI. 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
