  • Also, candidates have to concentrate on accuracy as there is a negative marking in the IIFT exam, so be aware of the improvement in accuracy.
  • Candidates should thoroughly analyze the answers of these mock tests and aim at improving the errors. And also try to solve previous year’s question papers as it gives an idea about the exam pattern by which you can evaluate your strength and weakness.

  • In the IIFT exam each section has different marks, unlike other MBA entrance exams where there is a uniform marking scheme throughout the paper. And it is essential for a candidate to realize this factor of the IIFT exam and go ahead further with an apt strategy to get the maximum marks.
  • There are two extremely prominent sections that are Logical Reasoning, and Data Interpretation in the IIFT exam pattern where the rate of marks per minute is the highest for these two sections. So, have a glance at the passages and try out two passages that you are comfortable with. 
  • As there has no sectional time-limit in the IIFT exam, candidates can make a strategy accordingly. Aim at scoring required sectional cutoff, attempt questions from topics that are your strong areas, and do not take too much time on a question that is difficult to understand. 
  • Usually, the calculation of the DI section is intensive, so candidates need to keep this in mind before attempting it.
  • Generally, RCs are a bit longer but most of the questions are straightforward. As this section gives minimum marks per minute, so do not target attempting all RCs.
