IIFT 2010 Analysis
The IIFT 2010 question paper was very much along the predictable lines. The paper was very lengthy and the QA and LRDI sections had quite a few tedious questions. The question paper had 135 questions divided into four sections. Each question had four options and the extent of the negative marking was 1/3rd of the marks allotted to the question. The break-up of the sections is given below:

  • Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation (35 marks) – 35 questions
  • Quantitative Ability (30 marks) – 30 questions
  • General Awareness (12 marks) – 30 questions
  • English (23 marks) – 40 questions
    o Part–1 (10.5 marks) RC – 15 questions
    o Part–2 (12.5 marks) EU – 25 questions
  • Total (100 marks) – 135 questions

Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation: The LRDI section was a mix of simple LR and difficult DI. The calculations involved in DI questions were very cumbersome. There were 3 LR sets (13 questions) and all of them could have been done easily. The cut-off for the section should be around 8 marks.

Quantitative Ability: There were around 10 -12 doable questions in the QA section. The cut-off should be around 5 marks.

General Awareness: The GA section of the paper was definitely tougher than that of IIFT 2009. The questions were from diverse topics. The cut-off should be around 2 marks.

English: The overall difficulty level of the English section was higher as compared to the previous year. In the RC sub-section, there were four passages. The first two passages were doable. Questions in passages 3 and 4 were vague and some of the questions were out of the scope of the passage. Overall a score of 4-5 marks was achievable without much difficulty in the RC sub-section. In the EU sub-section, some questions were easy like the para-jumbles and grammar. One question based on analogy was vague. A smart student would have selectively picked the easier questions and left the difficult and vague ones. A score around 5 marks was attainable in this sub-section. Overall, we could say that the cut-off for English section would be around 8 marks.

The overall cut-off for getting a call from IIFT Delhi should be around 30 marks
