IIFT Cutoff 2023

The IIFT Cut-off for 2023 and the corresponding percentile are subject to variations based on the institution and specific courses offered during the entrance exam. Typically, the IIFT Cut-off in 2023 ranges between 95 to 100 for top institutions in India. Various factors influence both the cut-off and percentile, such as the number of exam takers, the difficulty level of the question paper, available seats, the highest/average scores in a given year, and the institute's national ranking.

The IIFT Cut-off 2023 percentile can be as high as 90 and above, or fall within the 80-85 or 85-90 range, depending on the institution and available admission vacancies. It's crucial for candidates to note that meeting the prescribed scores and percentile alone does not guarantee admission. The final selection process involves Group Discussion (GD), Written Ability Test (WAT), and Personal Interview (PI) rounds.

Additionally, the "reservation category" plays a crucial role in determining cut-offs. For General candidates, the percentile and cut-off are generally higher (90-100), while for reserved category candidates, there may be a slight reduction (1-2%). In some cases, gender-based margins are considered, with a 1-2% reduction in cut-offs for female candidates compared to the standard cut-off scores.

In the context of IIFT Cut-off 2023, it's important to distinguish between qualifying and final cut-offs. Qualifying cut-offs are predetermined before result announcements, while final cut-offs are established post-results. Candidates are evaluated based on their "overall composite" score, taking into account various selection criteria. Therefore, success in the IIFT Exam is contingent not only on meeting initial cut-offs but also on performing well in subsequent rounds of the selection process.
