Seeking immediate redressal, a parent from Nagpur in a video message said, “There has been a big scam in IIFT MBA exam which happened today (December 5). There were technical glitches before the exam was concluded. We have written a letter to NTA requesting for a re-exam for the students along with West Bengal and Odisha.”

“Please reschedule the IIFT MBA exam 2022 as it has caused a lot of challenges for students,” the parent added.

“#IIFT2021 Exam 2022-24 : Should be Awarded as The worst management exam of the year. There was no management in the management exam,” a Facebook user said.

A candidate wrote on Facebook, “IIFT exam: Jammu centre… 13 questions were not visible due to screen compatibility issues. The same was the case for 98% of students at my centre. Don’t know what will happen.”


“They gave one single sheet for each student and later during the exam when I asked for an extra sheet, the invigilator pointed to the extra space in my sheet. It was as if I was giving my unit test in school,” another student said.

Another student took it to Twitter saying, "There was mismanagement at IIFT test centre with exam starting at different times. Invigilators were talking and shouting on their phones and no social distancing was maintained."

“IIFT (MBA) exams will not be conducted in exam centres at Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha- Bhubaneshwar, Sambalpur, Cuttack, West Bengal - Kolkata, Durgapur,” the NTA said in a notice.
