IIFT notification

Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) released the IIFT exam notification 2018 on July 25, 2017. Along with it, the IIFT application form was also made available. This year, the Institute delayed the IIFT 2018 notification due to reasons unknown. Few days after the release of IIFT 2018 notification, IIM Lucknow released the CAT 2017 notification, which came with an upsetting revelation. The IIFT exam date 2018 was clashing with CAT exam date 2017, which was November 26, 2017.

The clash of CAT and IIFT exam date became an issue of concern for thousands of students aspiring to appear for both the exams this year. However, on August 3, 2017, IIFT has resolved this date clash issue by revising the IIFT 2018 exam dates, which now differ from the dates mentioned in the IIFT notification 2018. 

Latest CAT 2017 and IIFT Exam Date Clash Issue Resolved
