Sources of questions in IIFT 2008 paper

There were 11 questions in Logical Reasoning section, which carried an uncanny resemblance to 6 reasoning questions from CAT 2002 and another 5 reasoning questions from CAT 2003 (November). It seems that someone just changed the name and little data, and replicated those questions in IIFT 2008 paper. In few cases, the options were also exactly matching,which is very surprising again.

For questions in the Verbal Ability section, a few GMAT and GRE websites obviously provided a lot of inspiration.

Analysis and Answer Key of IIFT 2008.

Executive Summary

The IIFT Entrance Test 2008 was very similar in essence to IIFT 2007, but there was a slight change in the pattern of the test. Unlike last year, when there was 4 sections with three of them having sub-sections as in Part (i) and Part (ii), this time there was 6 distinct sections. Like last year, each question had only one correct answer. Students accustomed to the 150 minutes format of CAT which comprised of much lesser number of questions, found the IIFT paper to be extremely lengthy. Another notable departure from last year was the absence of Decision Making questions from Logical Reasoning section.

Salient features:

1. Number of sections: 6
2. Number of options for each question: 4
3. All questions had only one correct answer, out of the given options
4. Each incorrect answer carried 1/4 negative marks
5. Variation in weightage, as compared to the previous year
6. No specific mention of sectional cut-offs
7. Like last year, aspirants were allowed to retain the booklet
8. The expected cut-off for the Delhi campus will be between (27-28)
