# IIFT 2016 Exam – Paper Pattern, Cutoffs, and Answer Key

Monday, November 28th, 2016

IIFT 2016 exam was conducted yesterday. Now that we have had some time to look at the paper, we can definitely say a few things:
1. It was definitely harder than last time
2. The paper had a bunch of errors (Separate post about that in a little while)
3. GK section had some easy questions but some weird ones too (complete review of IIFT GK)

Given below is a complete breakdown of the IIFT Paper.

### IIFT 2016 Expected Cutoffs

Overall cutoff – 43 to 45
There are couple of reasons we believe that it would be lower than last year. The biggest one of them is the fact that there were wrong questions. We are assuming everyone gets a 0 for the wrong questions. A lot of students wasted time on it which might lead to an overall lower cutoff.

General Knowledge – 2 to 2.5
Quantitative Aptitude – 6 to 7
Verbal and Reading Comprehension – 6 to 7
Logical Reasoning – 4 to 5 (Because of the errors)

### IIFT 2016 Exam Paper Pattern

One of our students forwarded this paper to us. We used it because it was exceptionally clean. Now we are wondering how the student managed to do that. Anyway, you can download the paper from the below link. It also includes the answer key.

But that is normally not the case.
So I have left that part as ambiguous and not marked the answer.
Will post something conclusive in a day or two.
