IIFT 2016 was as standard as an IIFT could have been. The same differential marking, the same format, the same pattern, the spread of 123 questions across 6 sub sections and a total adding up to 100 marks, everything nearly the same. All in all, all the kids who would have prepared for and IIFT and would have had a ready strategy would be the best equipped to have a go at it.
Section Wise Analysis
Section 1: Analytical Reasoning (22 Questions, each of 0.75 marks)
This section had 5 sets and 4 independent questions. The set on pattern identification based on the figure was a relatively tricky one and the one based on Eight Doctors was time consuming considering it had just 3 questions in this set. All in all, it was a manageable section wherein approximately 18 Good attempts with a score of 10 can be called a Good Score and an ideal time allotment can be 25 mins for this section.
Section 2: Data Interpretation (20 Questions, each of 1 mark)
There were 4 sets of Data Interpretation having 5 questions each. With two table-based DI sets and two bar chart based DI sets, IIFT once again produced a calculation intensive section. Leaving a question or two from all the sets was the key strategy of maintaining pace and optimizing selections.
Due to its time consuming nature, approx 11 attempts can be termed good. A score of 8 can be called a Good Score considering an allotment of 26 mins for this section.
Section 3: Quantitative Aptitude (20 Questions, each of 1 mark)
The section had usually large portion of modern mathematics. There were 8 Questions of Progression, Permutation and Combination, Probability, Set Theory, Logarithm, Inequalities. This reduced share of Arithmetic based chapters. 8 to 9 questions were from Numbers, Linear Equation, Profit and Loss, Surd, Time Work and Time Distance. Rest of the questions were from Geometry.
Most of the questions were manageable. This should result into a Good Score of 12-13 with Good Attempts of up to 17 questions in 27 mins.
Section 4: Reading Comprehension (16 Questions, each of 1 mark)
4 RCs with 4 Questions each created this section. All of them, with an exception of a couple of nicely created questions, can be solved easily by an aspirant having decent control over reading.
Since this section was easy, 13 can be called Good Attempts and a score of 10 can be called a Good Score in 20 mins. Because majority of the questions were direct, it can be considered a rather easy section to solve.
Section 5: Verbal Ability (20 Questions, each of 0.75 marks)
With no questions on Grammar or Verbal Logic (apart from the 2 reasonably easy parajumbles questions), the whole section had a heavy bias towards vocabulary. The questions were tricky as well as time consuming and there was a lot of application of elimination rather than selection. Allocating 12 mins to the section would fetch 14 attempts and a 6 marks in this section can be considered a good score in this section.
Section 6 : General Knowledge
There were a total of 14 static Qs and the rest were from Current Affairs.
All in All, 10 minutes spent in this section can fetch upto 16 attempts and a score of 6 can be considered to be a good score in this section.
A total score of 48.2 can be considered good enough to get a call from IIFT. A table for the synopsis :
