IIFT Exam Preparation

To study for the IIFT 2023 exam, establish a strategy that allows enough time for each item on the curriculum. Begin by studying the fundamental principles of the most significant topics in each division. After candidates finished IIFT course, they can start working on practice examinations and sample papers.

  • For the Quantitative portion, one must be well-versed in concepts and equations, as well as all types of problems.
  • Sample questions for Reasoning, Data Interpretation, and Verbal Ability must be practised from the beginning to the completion of the IIFT exam preparation phase.
  • General Awareness is a memory-based subject that is simple to master near the end of the IIFT exam preparation process.

Candidates must prepare well for the IIFT 2023 exam by reading recommended books and study resources. To create an effective preparation strategy, they should also take IIFT mock tests, read expert suggestions, and watch IIFT topper interviews.  

Speed Matters

The exam consists of over a hundred questions, that are needed to be answered within a time frame of 2 hours. Questions are overall easy to attempt, but the challenge lies in the aspect of getting through all of the questions within that given time. So, you need to be fast at reading questions, then understanding them as it is intended, and then coming to a logical conclusion.

These things can only be mastered if you have practised the format as frequently as possible. This means you must daily take one mock test or practice sample paper or even a previous year's question paper to improve speed along with accuracy. You are halfway into cracking IIFT 2023 if you can attempt all of the questions.

Don't Look Back

If you have marked an answer you shouldn't be coming back to it in doubt. This will consume unnecessary time, which could be used to solve other questions. So, the second quality you need to develop is accuracy. Again this can be cultivated with the help of solving as many practice papers as possible.

IIFT 2023 entrance exam will mostly test a candidate's time management skills not just quantitative and verbal ability. So both speed and accuracy are the primary tools of any candidate for efficient time management and thus will give you an edge over your competitors.

Section-Wise Approach

You need to find out in which sections you are more strong and in which sections you need little practice. Now you need to make sure that you finish the sections that you are strong in much quicker so that you could transfer that extra time to the sections that take more time.

Remember that there are sectional cutoffs and you need to clear every one of those cutoffs to crack this exam. Learn the basics and other methods that could help you to solve questions easily.

IIFT 2023 Exam Strategy

Prepare your strategy around the following attributes.

  • Time management.
  • Speed and accuracy.
  • Scoring more than sectional cut-offs.

Be clear with your exam strategy and solve a couple of previous year's question papers. IIFT Previous year question papers will help and provide you with an understanding of the IIFT 2023 question paper. Apart from this, you can also learn about the best preparation strategies to crack the sectional-wise cutoff of the IIFT exam, as the participating institute also requires that for admission.

IIFT Mock Test

IIFT Test Mock Test will assist you in gaining an understanding of the types of questions presented, the exam pattern, and the marking scheme. You can immediately check your score after taking the test. You can also get the Question Paper, together with the answers and explanations, for free. Now is the time to begin the free online test.
