IIFT 2015 is scheduled to be held on 20th November. While there is slightly over a month left for the exam, it would be prudent if you started your General Knowledge preparations for the same. While the cutoffs are low, you can easily improve your score in the General Knowledge section with a little bit of effort and it is recommended that you start putting in that effort sooner than later.
I will be conducting a free class to discuss the preparation strategy for IIFT General Knowledge in the 1 month that is left. You can register for the class below.
How to Prepare for IIFT GK in 1 m

General Knowledge is an important part of the IIFT exam. A lot of students suffer because they neglect it and do not prepare for it. In this particular post, I will like to talk about two main things with respect to the IIFT Exam - GK cutoffs and paper pattern. Here is a video detailing the IIFT exam pattern along with the cutoffs for last few years.
IIFT General Knowledge GK Cutoffs for 2012, 2013, 2014
There is a sectional cutoff in the IIFT exam. The sectional cutoff for GK has always been on the lower side. But that should not make you complacent. A lot of good candidates miss
General Knowledge or GK plays an important role in both XAT and IIFT exams. We have an online course for GK for XAT and IIFT which has helped 5000+ students over the past couple of years. However, in this particular post I am primarily going to talk about the question bank or PDF that I have complied for XAT / IIFT GK. This is a collection of questions that have been asked in the XAT and IIFT exams over the past three years. This PDF includes:
IIFT GK Paper for 2012 exam
IIFT GK Paper for 2013 exam
IIFT GK Paper for 2014 exam
XAT GK Paper for 2013 exam
XAT GK Paper for 2014 exam

The General Knowledge section in IIFT has always been problematic for a lot of students. In my opinion, there are two big reasons behind it.
1. Students don't prepare for it.
2. They do not prepare from the right sources.
While nothing can be done to fix point 1, we are working really hard to fix the second one. A lot of students prepare from sources which provide too much information and that becomes a problem. Let's face it, you cannot really go through a Manorama Year Book in a week. The other mistake that a bunch of students make is that they try to prepare for GK via tests / moc
General Knowledge (GK) is an important part of the IIFT exam. The first thing that I will like to tell you is that you need to clear the sectional cut-off the get a call from IIFT. But there is some good news as well – the cutoff for the GK section in IIFT is typically in low single digits. If you look at the sample of the last 4-5 years, it has remained in the range of 2 marks to 4 marks. There will be around 25 questions on GK with each question for 0.5 marks. And now the bad news – a lot of people don’t even manage that. Over the years, I have seen a bunch of students who cleared
The concept of ‘divide and conquer’, derived from the Latin phrase ‘Divide et impera’, was put into use effectively by everyone from Caesar to Napoleon to The British in India. Even Gaddafi tried using the same but as current events show us – he wasn’t very effective. Dividing rather divisibility rules to be specific can come in really handy at times in solving problems based on Number Systems.
The standard rules which nearly all of us are very comfortable with are the ones for 2n and 5n. For these all that one needs to do is look at the last ‘n’ digits of the number. If the
I understand that the title might be a little misleading but at least I could not come up with something better. So before you end up getting disappointed, let me first list down the topics that I am going to cover in this particular blogpost:
Number of factors of a given number
Number of even factors or odd factors of a given number
Sum of all factors of a given number
Sum of all even factors or odd factors of a given number
We know that a number N can be written as a product of its factors as given below
N = ap x bq x cr …
Dealing with Factorials
We all know what factorials (n!) are. They look friendly and helpful but looks can be deceiving, as many quant problems have taught us. Probably it is because that Factorials are simple looking creatures, most students prefer attempting questions based on them rather than on Permutation & Combination or Probability. I will cover P&C and Probability at a later date but in today’s post I would like to discuss some fundas related to factorials, which as a matter of fact form the basis of a large number of P&C and Probability problems.
