IIFT : Last minute 7 check points
Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) 2016 will conduct its written examination on 27th November 2016.
IIFT Aspirants need to check following 7 points as last minute preparation so that blunders must not happen:
Before you go on to the IIFT 2016 Study Material and start giving Mock Tests, here are a few common blunders that you must avoid and that will help you get a higher IIFT 2016 score.
1. Always Remember - The obvious answer is the Wrong Answer
There will be hardly any 'sitter' questions in IIFT 2016 . The obvious answer (the one you can guess without spending much time on), is likely to be the wrong one, so be careful.
2. Guess if you can eliminate at least ONE answer
You need to invest some time on all questions, so while you are going through the questions, do NOT become emotionally involved with any of them. And even if you think the questions is outrageously difficult or outright incorrect, just try to eliminate at least one answer, guess and move on if you are not feeling confident about it.
3. Keep track of the time
Certain questions by their very nature take more time to answer. The first step to better time management is to recognize these questions.
While doing your practice tests, try to become more aware of how much time you have taken to answer a question. You will soon begin to develop an Internal Clock that will help you meet the pacing requirements of the exam and reduce test anxiety.
4. Compare & Discard
This is immensely useful for the Reading Comprehension section of the IIFT Exam.
While there may be a 'Perfect' answer to a question, it may not appear as one of the options. What you need to do is compare the different answer choices and choose the best one available. In fact you can usually zero down on two choices and discard the ones that are distinctly different from these two.
5. Use Short-cuts Only when necessary
It is extremely important to be aware of all the possible shortcuts that are available to you; however, these are to be used only if you are unable to apply the ‘regular’ methods.
6. Analyze your Strengths & Weaknesses
Create a study plan unique to them. The important thing here is NOT to ignore your strengths, and to stick to your study plan.
7. Manage Test Anxiety
More than anything else, the IIFT is also a test of your nerves. There are hundreds of brilliant students who score MUCH lower in the IIFT than they do in their practice tests. It is important to manage your test anxiety.
