Check: NIFT Cut off 2023

For Example: 

Out of 100 questions in GAT B.Des, you have attempted 94 questions, and the remaining 6 are unanswered. By verifying your answers from the NIFT Answer key, you have answered 78 correctly, while 16 are incorrect. Now, let us understand how to calculate the score. 

Marks for Correct Answers: 78*1= 78

Marks for Incorrect Answers: 16*0.25= 4

Marks for Unattempted Questions: 6*0 = 0

NIFT Score= (Marks for Correct Answers) - (Marks for Incorrect Answers) = 78-4 = 74


The NIFT answer key is important because it allows students to evaluate their entrance exam performance accurately. 

It provides the correct answers to each question so students can compare their responses and calculate an estimated score.

We can expect the provisional answer key to be released shortly.
