XAT 2016, the entrance exam organized by Xavier Labour Relation Institute (XLRI), Jamshedpur will be on 3rd January 2016. However XAT is conducted by the Xavier Association of Management Institutes (XAMI) for admission in XLRI and many other top tier management institutes of India. XAT is considered to be one of the toughest MBA entrance exams in India which requires complete awareness.
XAT 2016 will be on 3rd January 2016 from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM. In previous years the duration of the exam was 3 hours. The increased time has been allowed so that students can attempt more questions. Expectation is that this would increase the spread of marks among test takers. This will help in improving the differentiation power of the test. Institutes using XAT score will be more confident about the difference between a good and bad candidate.
The format of XAT would remain pen-paper based.This mode of examination ensures that all candidates are tested on the same set of questions, and not on different.
As per the notification released, there is no change in the exam pattern. The test would be in 2 parts: Aptitude Test and Essay and GK.
XAT as always will have below sections
|Parts||Section Name||Total Time|
|Part A||Verbal and Logical Ability||180 Mins|
|Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation|
|Part B||General Knowledge.||30 Mins|
Other changes for XAT 2016
Eligible candidates can apply for XAT 2016 till 30th November 2015
Recognized Bachelor’s degree of minimum three years duration or equivalent in any discipline. Those completing their final examination by June 10, 2016 may also apply. All Indian candidates must appear for XAT 2016. However NRI and foreign candidates may apply through GMAT score (except Dubai and Kathmandu wherein candidates have an option of appearing for XAT 2016)
Mock Tests form an integral part of preparations for any exam, certainly competitive exams such as MBA entrances. Preparation cannot be considered complete unless you solve a few mock tests, which are nothing but replicas of the kind of question papers you can expect in the main exam.
Just as a new born baby needs a mother to nurture and nourish him, especially in his formative years, the dreams that you see and the goals that you set for yourself, are your own baby that require your undiverted attention.
There is the only way to deal with the fear of the CAT exam- conquer it. Do not let it hinder your preparation but use it to push your limits.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that every single student who appears for entrance examinations to get into MBA, dreams of getting through to the biggest institutes of management in the country, that is the Indian Institutes of Management, spread across the country.
MBA is one of the most sought after courses among the student community and remains in demand despite the fluctuations in the job market.
