You haven't mentioned the particular course that you are willing to take admission in. There are plenty of courses available in NIFT and the cutoffs differ for all of them in all cities.

Is there Negative marking in NIFT entrance exam for B.Des in GAT paper or only for B.FTech ?

Awanya Dabas 15th Mar, 2020

Hey!

There is negative marking in all NIFT Examination papers including B.Des. In GAT Exams, aspirants are awarded one mark for every correct answer and 0.25 marks are deducted for every wrong answer, selected by the candidate.

Hope this answer helps!
