Some Important Preparation Tips for IIFT 2022

  • Try meditation during the last week before the exam - Meditation would definitely enhance your concentration power and would relax your mind in order to perform better in your exam.
  • Sleep well a day before the exam - Take at least 7-8 hours of sleep a day before your exam. Proper sleep is always essential for better performance.
  • Try not to revise at the last moment - In the last hours, candidates are advised to remain focused. Revising at the last moment will lead to a stressful situation which is surely not the right time.

  • Speed and Accuracy- The most important thing while doing the paper is to have a proper balance between speed and accuracy. Set a time limit for each section. This would help you to maintain your speed. Both these factors are equally important and you have to keep them in mind to make up your score.
  • Do not stick to a question- If you get stuck in the question, then leave it for later. Don’t stick to that. It would waste your time for sure. When the last few minutes are left, then again switch to that question, you might get your answer at that time.
  • Be Self-Confident-Having confidence in oneself is the key point for selection. If you are finding any section difficult, then you don’t have to lose your confidence level. Be patient and solve that section in a calm manner. Try to attempt that section first in which you are confident enough to score better.
  • Don’t switch to new topics- In the last few days, it is advisable not to study new topics. Revise only what you have studied earlier. Studying new topics will lessen your confidence level.
  • Analyse your strength and weakness- By now, you should know your strengths and weaknesses. The sections in which you know, you could score better, work hard for that. Try to score maximum in that particular section. And the sections in which you are weak, do as much practice as you can.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Give your exam in a stress-free way. Don’t forget to carry your admit card and valid identity proof along with you. Take all the precautions related to Covid-19 and give your best in the exam.
