IIFT 2020 Exam Analysis by HitBullsEye

This year IIFT exam was conducted by National Testing Agency and exam was computer based. There were 4 sections namely QR, RC&VA, DI&LR, GA with a total of 110 questions. QR section was tough this year. DI was calculation intensive and selection of question was important in LR. RC was comparatively easier than last year and was dominated by factual questions. Vocabulary was the toughest part in RC&VA section as the words were moderate to tough. Like last year GK was tough. To maintain the cutoff in all 4 sections time management was the key.

Evaluation: This section was difficult this time. Overall it was dominated by Arithmetic, Geometry and Mensuration. Geometry and Mensuration included questions on Triangles, Coordinate and Height and Distance. In Arithmetic section questions on percentages were easy but lengthy. This time there was a question on installment and escalators as well. Questions on clock and Venn diagram were easy and direct. This time there were a couple of questions from algebra. So overall it was difficult as it had only few direct questions.

Evaluation: The RCs were easy to medium in difficulty level and were shorter in length as compared to last year. There were four passages with 4 questions each. A student could have easily solved two-three passages in the given time. The RC section was dominated by factual questions.

The Verbal Ability portion of the exam had an extremely strong emphasis on Vocabulary. One crossword vocabulary based question was also there. There were four analogies based questions and 3 idiom/phrase based questions. As mentioned vocabulary was a very dominant part of this section and the words given belonged to moderate to tough category making the attempt tricky.  Grammar was comparatively easier this year with 2 grammar fill in the blanks questions related to preposition and 1 sentence correction based question.
