Around 22,000 test takers appeared for the exam in 32 cities across India. Careers360 presents here NIFT entrance test 2018 students’ reactions right from the exam centres. We interviewed few candidates to understand their preparation level, exam experience, question analysis, the difficulty level of the exam, and their overall performance.

 

The NIFT 2018 examination got over at 1 PM for B.FTech. aspirants and at 4:30 PM for B.Des. candidates. Careers360 gets you the reactions of the examinees and their analysis of the test paper.

 

Aakriti: There were three questions in CAT which we had to complete in three hours. One was to make a boat with a piece of paper, just like origami. Another question was on how to change a bulb.

 

Parth: We had to draw a bag for wedding or picnic, and to describe it properly in 5-6 lines. One question was on drawing a geometrical figure that describes your personality.

 

According to the test-takers, GAT was very easy and the questions were on the expected lines. Check below what they had to say about the difficulty level:

 

Sakshi: The paper was not that difficult. English section was a bit confusing though. I answered all the questions asked in GK section effortlessly. Questions regarding education, technology, etc. were asked in case study section. Reasoning was of basic level. 

 

Aditi: I found the paper easier than my expectations, as I had already practised a lot of sample papers during the preparation phase. Mathematics was okay, GK a bit tough, English good, and case study a little tricky. Analytical questions were also easy.  

 

Most of the candidates found the paper to be of easy to moderate difficulty level. They opined that they didn't feel any need to enrol themselves for coaching classes during the preparation phase. Speaking about the same, Jasmine shared, “It is not important to join a coaching institute. You can prepare very well with self-studies only. The best book according to me is Arihant". Vibhu, a NIFT Delhi aspirant, joined in saying, "I also didn't take any coaching classes for this entrance exam. I studied on my own, and solved sample papers as much as possible".
