IIFT written entrance exam i scored 59.5 / 100 it has sectional cut-offs as well i opted for this as it is a Tier-1 college and gives global exposure as well as specialised focus on international business. And it has very famous alumni in addition to a 53 year old legacy under the Government of India.
It was profile and interview based for executives. Since it is one of the premiere college of the world, I want to pursue my course from here. Its Gobal Rank is 26 in International business.
IIFT- 49.9, I opted for IIFt because of my interest in International Business, which came mainly because of my nomadic life and my love for travelling. I take pleasure in doing sales and Business development. So I knew that I can have both the things only at IIFT.
I took IIFT Entrance Exam. My score was 46.84/100. The college is one of the best to provide management studies. Also it is the best trade specialization college in India.
IIFT DELHI. There is enterance exam, followed by group discussion and interview. I score very well in these test. Best college in finance
IIFT conducts its own examination each year, generally a week before CAT which has the same sections as other MBA entrance examinations namely Quant, Verbal, DI+LR and General Awareness. The cutoff varies year on year depending on the difficulty level of the exam. In my year, the cut-off was 50. I score 60/100 which made it easier to get in as written exam had 65% weightage.
