XAT 2013: Understanding Nature of Exam

XAT usually comprises 3 Objective type Multiple Choice sections and an essay writing section. 
 
1.Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation (Math) - (Objective Type Multiple Choice)
2.Verbal Reasoning (English) - (Objective Type Multiple Choice)
3.Analytical Reasoning and Decision Making - (Objective Type Multiple Choice)
4.And an essay writing section
 
The duration of the test is 120 minutes for the objective type section and an additional 20 minutes is provided at the end of the 2 hours for the essay writing section.
 
In order to crack XAT, you should first know how the exam is different from others. In XAT, the Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation questions are in one section. The second section is English Usage (EU) and RC. The third section is Analytical Reasoning (AR) and Decision Making
 
In the recent past, the XAT has had more questions than the CAT exam to be solved in lesser time. While in the CAT exam it may be possible to get a decent shot at all questions, in XAT it is more advisable to drop tough looking questions, and find the easier ones to solve.
 
Thus, selection of easier questions is very important, which are very well inserted between the tougher questions, the reason for the perception of XAT being a tougher nut to crack than CAT.
 
For example, one can easily find simpler questions based upon algebra and trigonometry, between two questions which might involve application of calculus. Though the questions based upon calculus and functions are themselves on decline as observed in the past.
 
Thus, XAT primarily tests three areas - your decision making abilities, working under pressure and deadlines, and the ability to capitalize on ones' strengths.
