IIFT Cut-off

The cut-offs for IIFT vary every year depending on a number of factors. The most prominent among them is the overall performance of the candidates in the exam. Based on the cut-offs candidates are shortlisted for the GD/PI round at the three campuses of IIFT. 

The exam is highly competitive, and due to the elite nature of the institute, IIFT cut-offs are usually quite high. The cut-offs are also different for different campuses. The opportunity to study at IIFT is quite lucrative, as a result, almost no seats go vacant after the first list is put up.
