XAT 2016 will be conducted on January 3, 2016. The registration for the same will most likely begin from the last week of August or the first week of September, 2015.
XAT is conducted by XLRI to admit suitable candidates to the post graduate management programmes offered by it. XAT scores are accepted by more than 100 B-Schools to facilitate their admission procedures to MBA, PGDM and other management programmes being offered by them.
“The exam will be taking place in first Sunday of January 2016. The registration will begin from August last week or September first week”, said Sarthak Gupta, External Linkage Cell of XLRI.
This year onwards XLRI may introduce a single form to apply for XAT exam and for the application to the institute. Previously, two separate forms were to be filled by the candidates; one for XAT and another for the institute. This process is similar to the pattern followed by IIMs in CAT.
This exam will be a paper-pencil exam and it comprises of four sections namely, Quantitative Ability, English Language & Logical Reasoning, Decision Making and GK & Essay.
