NIFT 2023 Conducted on 5th February 
The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) was conducted the written exams for NIFT 2023 on February 5, 2023.
The GAT paper was held from 9-30 am – 11.30 am, while the CAT paper is scheduled from 1.30 – 4.30 pm. Note that B.Des and M.Des candidates need to take both the CAT and GAT exams. 
However, B.F.Tech, M.F.Tech, and M.F.M candidates only need to take the GAT paper.
With the GAT paper now over, we bring you the detailed NIFT 2023 exam analysis, expected cut-off, and much more. 
Candidates who qualify in the written exam will have to next appear in a Situation Test (B.Des) or Personal Interview (PG programs).
The FINAL result for NIFT 2023 will be prepared by giving weightage to each test component.  
NIFT 2023 will have 18 participating NIFTs, offering a combined seat intake of 5, 199 seats. These include 4,324 All-India seats, 405 state domicile seats, and 470 NRI seats.
The NIFT 2023 entrance exam will be conducted in two parts:
Written Tests – The candidate first appears in the Creative Ability Test (CAT) and General Ability Test (GAT) written tests. The GAT test is mandatory for all the programs, while B.Des and M.Des candidates also need to take the CAT test. The GAT will be conducted in CBT mode, while the CAT will be administered in pen-paper mode. 
Situation Test / Group Discussion and Personal Interview  - The scores of the written tests (CAT and GAT) will be used to shortlist candidates for a Situation Test (B.Des)/ PI (all PG programs). The results for the written exam will be declared sometime in March. 
Note that B.F.Tech candidates don’t need to appear in any further rounds, as the merit list for admission will be prepared solely on the basis of GAT scores.
NIFT Situation Test/PI 2023
The situation test for the B.Des program will be conducted in offline mode. Candidates who have qualified in the NIFT 2023 written tests and participated in the choice-filling process can participate in the situation test. As part of the choice-filling process, candidates have to select their choice of participating institutes in the order of priority.
Candidates will be shortlisted for the GDPI for the M.Des program based on GAT and CAT written tests. However, for MFTech and MFM courses, candidates will be shortlisted based on GAT scores only. Mode of Situation Test / PI – Offline
