Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) is popular for its postgraduate diploma in foreign trade. It conducts a paper based test named IIFT, generally in the month of November, to shortlist candidates for its MBA - International Business Program.
The written exam is followed by Group Discussion, Essay Writing and Personal Interview. On the basis of the candidates’ performance and the IIFT written test cutoff, IIFT will make a merit list for the second round. The IIFT cutoffs are declared.
Following is the actual overall Cut offs for IIFT 2017:
The total marks for the paper are 100 irrespective of the varying number of questions in the previous year papers. The total number of questions has been variable over the past years.
