This article brings a few important tips from Prof. S. K. Agarwal, expert in the Verbal Ability area, on what should be avoided while going to take IIFT 2013 test
The aspirants can expect to get through if they score 45 to 50 percent. It is strongly advised not to go for any doubtful questions.

Around 2 lakh CAT takers compete for a few thousand MBA seats, whereas there are 60 thousand test takers for approx. 220 seats in IIFT making it more tedious task to get into MBA (IB) 2014 at Indian Institute of Foreign trade (IIFT) Delhi and Kolkata Campus. The 100 percent placement in very good companies for the graduates of this programme makes it more fascinating and despite the difficult and lengthy entrance examination, more and more aspirants wish to crack it. Thus, the ratio of IIFT aspirants is growing much higher than the CAT aspirants.

MBAUniverse.com brings a few important tips from Prof. S. K. Agarwal, expert in the Verbal Ability area, on what should be avoided while going to take IIFT 2013 test:

1. Don’t spend time on one question but move to other one if question is found beyond the reach or lengthy. IIFT 2013 entrance exam has more number of questions (from 115 to 130) in comparison to CAT where you have 60 questions to attempt. Time allotted is also less than the CAT; 120 minutes as compared to 140 minutes in CAT. Hence, the time management becomes a crucial factor as there is approximately one minute per question to answer. 

2. Don’t attempt the questions, answers to which may be wrong or doubtful. The examination has one fourth negative marking and even a fraction of slip in percentile is very important. Another important feature about this test is the varying marking system in the range of 0.5 to 1. The aspirants can expect to get through if they score 45 to 50 percent. It is strongly advised not to go for any doubtful questions.

3. Don’t begin any new topic now. It will not only require more time but also you will have to reschedule your already running study pattern. Apart from this, if the topic is trickier than expected, aspirants might end up in more confusion than clarity of concept.

4.  IIFT 2013 entrance test is a paper pencil test; you are required to darken the circle. Do not tear out the OMR sheet with pointed darkening style nor leave it too light to detect the answer option. Darken the circle in appropriate way.

5. Don’t stick to one section in IIFT 2013 entrance which is usually divided in four sections English comprehension, Quantitative Ability, Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation, General Awareness. One or other section may be separated and clubbed to any other section but the important part is that sectional cut off is also applicable in this examination.  You may be expert in one section but getting high in one section and not qualifying in another will not help.

6. Do not be panicky, maintain you’re cool. If the examination is too difficult or lengthy, it will go for lower cut off and vice-versa.

7. Don’t jump to answer options before reading and understanding the questions. Sometimes answer options are very close ones and in the enthusiasm, aspirants mark the wrong answer options despite knowing the right answer. So, Read all the options carefully before going to darken the circle.

 8. Don’t read the passages in English Comprehension after reading the answer options. You may become biased and may omit the correct answer option. Better is to read the passage, understand it, read the answer options and then read the passage fairly quickly to confirm that you are right. 

  9. Don’t attempt the practice exercises and mock tests in a manner different from actual examination. Practice the exercises on actual pattern, do not write slangs, half or incorrect sentences, misspelt words.

10. Don’t practice on similar type of questions. Go for versatile type of questions and move to higher difficulty level.
