XAT 2016 will be conducted on 3rd January, Sunday and the registration for the same is open and will end on 30th November 2015. Register at xatonline.net.in
Nature of XAT is different and not only you will be tested for your quantitative skills but lot of emphasis will be to test your overall written communication skills along with your updated general awareness.
Let’s be clear on exam pattern:
The test would be split into two:
The Aptitude section would consist of :
|Parts||Section||No. Of Questions||Total Time|
|Part A||Verbal and Logical Ability||30||180 Mins|
|Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation||36|
|Part B||General Knowledge.||30||30 Mins|
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 other exams.
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.
The statistics which states that only 1 of 250 candidates makes it into XLRI can rattle any candidates, but if the number of serious aspirants is taken into account, it would drastically fall. You should understand that this exam is designed to measure your ability of maintaining a level head under pressure.
