IIFT 2007 Analysis

The IIFT Entrance Test 2007 was very similar in essence to IIFT 2006. The one main deviation from last year was that each question had only one correct answer, unlike multiple correct answers in last year’s exam. Students accustomed to the brief 75-question, 150 minutes CAT kind of test found the IIFT paper to be extremely lengthy.

Salient features:

  • Number of sections: 4 (2 subsections in all sections, except GK)
  • Number of options for each question: 4
  • Increase in no. of questions (From 106 in 2006 to 150 this year)
  • All questions had only one correct answer, out of the given options
  • Each incorrect answer carried 1/3 negative marks
  • Variation in weightage, as compared to the previous year
  • No specific mention of sectional cut-offs
  • Like last year, aspirants were allowed to retain the booklet
  • The expected cut-off for the Delhi campus will be between 24-26

Here is an overview of how you should have attempted this paper.

CAT 2007 Analysis

CATScan

 

On the whole, the CAT 2007 paper was tough, with no section providing much of a respite to the aspirants. Comparatively speaking, the students would have found Data Interpretation (DI), with a mix of calculations and logic to be on the easier side. Data Sufficiency in its old format reappeared in CAT after a span of three years, more so in two different sections! The emphasis in the DI section was definitely on speed of calculation.

But Quantitative Ability (QA) proved to be mind bogglingly difficult for the average student. However, on a closer look 7-8 questions could have been solved using options without using deeper mathematical knowledge.In Verbal Ability (VA), the number of Reading Comprehension (RC) passages was more than last year, though they were not lengthy. The number of questions per passage was low, just three each. Though, for a change, there were no abstract questions in RC, however, each passage required meticulous reading. As a section, it is safe to infer that the VA section checked almost all the aspects, including verbal logic, vocabulary and grammar. Continue reading
