XAT Study Plan – Decision Making Preparation in Three Weeks

December 18th, 2018 by

XAT exam is nearly three weeks away. There isn’t much time left so I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a last minute study plan for the most important section in the XAT exam – Decision Making. The reason why I am calling it the most important section is pretty straight forward: It is easy and high scoring. A lot of students don’t really prepare for it so it is easy to get a high percentile in it or clear the cutoff – whatever your goal It does not take too much time to prepare Roughly 1/4th to 1/3rd of the XAT 2019 exam paper is going to be based on Decision Maki

IIFT 2018 Expected Cutoffs – General Knowledge Questions and Answers

December 2nd, 2018 by

IIFT 2018 was conducted today. Given below are the images for the questions from the IIFT General Knowledge section. I think the General Knowledge section was not exceptionally hard and it was on the usual pattern. I think the cutoff for the General Knowledge section is bound to be around 3-4 questions.

However, for someone who was well prepared with General Knowledge section – he/she should be able to solve 8-10 questions in the GK section. Cutoff for IIFT GK
