Tips for cracking exam

The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) will conduct its written examination on December 3, 2017 for admission to its MBA-IB (MBA in International Business) programme 2018 - 20 at IIFT New Delhi and IIFT Kolkata.
 
Aspirants need to strategize as per their strengths and weaknesses for cracking this exam. 
 
Few important tips for cracking exam are :
 
Brush up your GK
 
This is one of the main differences between IIFT exam and other MBA entrance exams. The General Knowledge & Awareness section is the deal-breaker here. You should not wait until the last moment to start preparing for this section.
 
If you had been preparing for IIFT exam from the last few months & had been going through the newspapers (especially the business & economy sections) that would be more than enough. 
 
If you have not been doing that, do not despair. You can always rely on a good yearbook. The number of questions in this section varies from year to year, but you can safely expect at least 15-20 questions in this section.
 
Work on your Speed
 
The number of questions in the IIFT exam hovers around 120-135. Speed, therefore, is very vital. The quantitative section of IIFT exam is considered to be one of the toughest.
 
But you’d come across some really easy questions too, which will be the real clinchers. For this, you will again need to work on your speed, so that you can easily maneuver through the question paper and manage to reach & spot these easy questions.
 
Expand your Vocabulary
 
The exam’s English Comprehension section usually has a lot of questions that will test your vocabulary, so, you would need to work on that.
 
You could use “flash cards” with words & their meanings and keep memorizing sets of 10 cards every day. You should also know how these new words are supposed to be used in a sentence. 
 
For this you need to read a lot. Nothing works like reading to improve your vocabulary as well as sentence-formation skills.
 
Get your basics right
 
If you have got your basics right & foundation strong, cracking IIFT exam would be a cakewalk. Just keep in mind that in order to crack a 2 hour long paper that would consist of around 120-135 questions, your speed, accuracy & choice of questions is what would matter the most.
