The IIFT test - 2 down,3 to go...

Relieved a bit today coz my mentor is here to show me a bit of directions regarding my code – and have some insight into the performance issues I have been havin since last week…nice to sit with him n understand the code…shud have done a major part of it earlier…but yea it was tough – n no one kinda had time 4 me…Da delivery is supposed to be today…so lets wait n see what happens…

It was a relief that da IIFT test went fine yesterday – some changes in da paper,yeah,but not so significant. With a 100+ attempts…yea I can say that I mite make it big – but again…IIFT gives out only around 800 calls…naturally the top 800 and those who lie a bit below, say in the top 1500-2000 and having sufficient workex will be da ones called…the convert ratio of course is seemingly even more harsh…only 120 finally convert…so well…even if I have performed good…n there is someone who has performed better…there goes my chance at IIFT…

Sometimes I really cant understand howeva what do they get by putting questions like the foll in GK…

Which of the foll is true?
a) The climate of the equitorial region is 20 deg in summer blah blah…
b) In the tropics, the rainfall decreases from 30 deg East latitude to blah blah….
c) Blah blah..
d) Need I say more?

It makes me wonder whether MBA in International Business will deal with weather forecast. Have a look at the next one…

Which of the foll is true?
a) Of the 10 million species living today, about a few hundred are endangered and blah blah
b) Of the 70 million species living today, about a few fifty are preserved blah blah…
c)&d) more blah blah…

Yeh kya ho raha hai bhai?? Is this general knowledge or have I gone psyched? Who will go to learn this stuff? Are these facts or statistics? With these myriad questions in mind, all a student answerin IIFT entrance wud do is of course – resort to blind guessing – with dese kinda questions around there isnt even a need to read the question – the OMR is enugh…J

Big deal…IIFT kind of wants us to mug up evrythin possible…a relief that the IIMs at least don’t do that…n neither will XL from now onwards if my guess is rite…

And after all the torment in GK wat does one see in the Quant section is the following…


(forgive me as I cudnt replace da word below with the appropriate symbol)

- Integral of e^x(1+sinx)
___________
(1+cosx)


Now do we actually integrate this in the exam?? Where da hell does application of integral calculus come in foreign trade neway???


The less said the better about IIFT…nyway lukin fwd to a better JMET on the 11th…answerin it for the first time…

The evenin yest was as usual spent freakin out with the gang, and was giggling and laughing out at Deewane Huey Paagal…a definite time pass movie!!

Back to work now…!a
