Everything you need for IIFT GK – Free mock, past papers, pattern, and cutoffs

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016


IIFT exam is less than a week away and quite a few students are worried about the General Knowledge section. The primary reason for such a feeling is that they have prepared for topics like Quant and Verbal for more than 6 months whereas GK has been neglected. If you are in that category, my suggestion to them would be – don’t worry. There is absolutely no need to worry. First of all, the cutoff for IIFT GK is traditionally on the lower side. Even if you can dedicate 10-15 hours towards General Knowledge preparation, rest assured you will clear the cutoff. As a matter of fact, you should be targeting to do well in the GK section. In this particular post, I would like to touch upon a few things that can help you do well in the exam.
1. IIFT GK Paper Pattern
2. IIFT GK Cutoffs
3. IIFT GK Mock & Previous Papers (Free Download)
