No Surprises, No pattern change & Easy questions. After the fiasco of CAT, IRMA06 was reliving to all. IRMA had always followed a pattern (which is very similar to bank PO and Indian railway exams rather than any main stream MBA entrance exam).

The paper had 200 questions distributed among four sections - Quant + DI, English Usage, Reasoning and General Awareness with emphasis on social issues. The time limit was 2 hr and each question carried a negative mark of -1/4. The paper was easy so the cutoff 'll be in higher side.

IIFT 2006

IIFT 2006 - Exam Date November 26, 2006 Get the answers of IIFT 2006

A different date, a different place and a different exam but the experience was same as it was on CAT day - A tough paper with many surprises. If you have not performed well then do not worry much as the case is same with all.

Few might argue that this years IIFT was tougher than CAT and they are not wrong considering the fact that the number of correct answers were not limited to one. In CAT all the questions had only correct answer but in IIFT there were many questions for which students had to find out all the correct answers. That requires not only reading all the questions but also reading all the available answers and that's both confusing and time consuming.
