Clear IIFT GK Cutoff or get your money back

November 18th, 2014 by

The General Knowledge section in IIFT has always been problematic for a lot of students. In my opinion, there are two big reasons behind it. 1. Students don't prepare for it. 2. They do not prepare from the right sources. While nothing can be done to fix point 1, we are working really hard to fix the second one. A lot of students prepare from sources which provide too much information and that becomes a problem. Let's face it, you cannot really go through a Manorama Year Book in a week. The other mistake that a bunch of students make is that they try to prepare for GK via tests / moc

How to prepare for General Knowledge GK for IIFT

October 9th, 2014 by

General Knowledge (GK) is an important part of the IIFT exam. The first thing that I will like to tell you is that you need to clear the sectional cut-off the get a call from IIFT. But there is some good news as well – the cutoff for the GK section in IIFT is typically in low single digits. If you look at the sample of the last 4-5 years, it has remained in the range of 2 marks to 4 marks. There will be around 25 questions on GK with each question for 0.5 marks. And now the bad news – a lot of people don’t even manage that. Over the years, I have seen a bunch of students who cleared

Divisibility Rules

January 22nd, 2014 by

The concept of ‘divide and conquer’, derived from the Latin phrase ‘Divide et impera’, was put into use effectively by everyone from Caesar to Napoleon to The British in India. Even Gaddafi tried using the same but as current events show us – he wasn’t very effective. Dividing rather divisibility rules to be specific can come in really handy at times in solving problems based on Number Systems. The standard rules which nearly all of us are very comfortable with are the ones for 2n and 5n. For these all that one needs to do is look at the last ‘n’ digits of the number. If the

Factor Theory

January 22nd, 2014 by

Factor Theory   I understand that the title might be a little misleading but at least I could not come up with something better. So before you end up getting disappointed, let me first list down the topics that I am going to cover in this particular blogpost: Number of factors of a given number Number of even factors or odd factors of a given number Sum of all factors of a given number Sum of all even factors or odd factors of a given number   We know that a number N can be written as a product of its factors as given below   N = ap x bq x cr … Here a,b

Dealing With Factorials

January 22nd, 2014 by

Dealing with Factorials   We all know what factorials (n!) are. They look friendly and helpful but looks can be deceiving, as many quant problems have taught us. Probably it is because that Factorials are simple looking creatures, most students prefer attempting questions based on them rather than on Permutation & Combination or Probability. I will cover P&C and Probability at a later date but in today’s post I would like to discuss some fundas related to factorials, which as a matter of fact form the basis of a large number of P&C and Probability problems.

Number of trailing Zeros

January 22nd, 2014 by

Number of Trailing Zeros   In this blog post, I would like to cover these two ideas: Number of trailing zeroes in an expression Number of trailing zeroes in n!   But before I begin, let us first try to understand what exactly are ‘trailing zeroes’. It is nothing else but the number of zeroes at the end. I do not want to sound pedantic but on many occassions when you see a question which asks about, “What is the number of zeroes in ___” it is incorrect, because it should actually say – “What is the number of trailing zeroes?” or “What is the number of e
