Hello..

The selection procedure for this year IIFT exam will start from 2020 January. The selection procedure has two divisions one is that the marks or the percentile obtained in the exam and the second is the Group Discussion(GD) , essay writing and the Personal Interview(PI).

The shortlisted candidates with the minimum criteria of marks in the exam are called for the GD and PI process. The final stage of admission to the particular college is based on the score and the performance in GD and PI.

The three criteria for the short listed candidates are:

1. essay writing

3.Personal interview

Candidates are first given with the essay writing with the word limit of 300 words  and the time given is 20 minutes. In this the writing skills and the vocabulary is tested.

The next round is Group Discussion. Mainly GD is conducted to check how the candidate works in team. The GD topic can be based on the current issues or any abstract topic , so that the candidates must be aware of all the news and issues happening.

Finally the last round is the Personal Interview where the candidates can be asked for any questions related to their work experience, the achievements or why the want to join the particular college.All the interview questions is based on the interviewer.

The criteria for all these are:

IIFT exam score- 65%

how do i prepare for iift? are there any books i can refer to or online guides? what about exam pattern? and what about current affairs that are asked and the gk..

Ronak Gala Student Expert 1st Nov, 2019

Manage your time accordingly in the exam. That's where a bit of competition ends as people get confused about how to progress. For this you'll need to solve lots of mock exams to be thorough with the habit. Quant is slightly higher than CAT with the focus on geometry, modern math, compared to basic arithmetic. GK is a separate section and it is focused on business awareness with a sprinkling of static and general GK questions.

Coming to the books part, then solve  50 gears papers a book by Ajay Singh and TK SINHA. For verbal ability and reading comprehension section, Word Power Made Easy’ – by Norman Lewis and ‘ Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for the CAT’ - by Nishit K Sinha.

Rehan Alam Student Expert 25th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

Candidates belonging to General category must have secured at least 50% marks in graduation, and candidates belonging to SC/ST/PWD categories must have secured a minimum of 45% in graduation are eligible for the exam. That is pretty much it for your graduation. IIFT won't call students on the basis of their Previous Academic Performance but on their performance in IIFT exam.

The following is the distribution of weightage:

  • IIFT EXAM - 65%
  • GD - 15%
  • PERSONAL INTERVIEW - 20%

Hope this helps. Thank you.
