Exam Pattern

•    Quantitative Ability
•    English Language & Logical Reasoning
•    Decision Making
•    GK and Essay

In XAT exams, unlike other MBA entrance tests, candidates need to be more attentive in selecting which question to solve and what to drop without wasting much time.

This is an important aspect of XAT examination as it throws more number of questions to be solved in less time. In such a pressure building scenario, students need not lose their nerve and solve easier looking questions before attempting tough or complicated questions.

However, selection of easier questions is very difficult as they are very well inserted between the tougher questions that are speed breakers in such competitive exams.

But, it is not impossible to master the skill of scrutinizing questions and one could polish this skill by regress practice and disciplined preparation.

For instance, 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 skills in any aspiring student:

•    Decision making abilities,
•    Pressure handling and meeting deadline capability
•    Ability to capitalize on ones' strengths

Only knowing what you need to prepare is not enough; planning how to do is the key. You not only need to read and understand things but do so in a fixed time frame. You need to make a routine and stick to it for a scheduled preparation.

You need to devote some time to every section and especially to those which is out of your comfort zone and complete the groundwork in the fixed time period.
