5 Steps to tackle Ethical Dilemma Questions in XAT Decision Making Section

December 13th, 2018 by

The key tests for sieving through the MBA aspirants in India focus excruciatingly only on aptitude skills with an exception of XAT. XAT paper also invests in analyzing a person’s attitude, though the standard test format is rather restrictive for being an accurate barometer for a person’s honesty/sincerity. After all, like Warren Buffett insists – Integrity is the prime quality he would look for before hiring a new candidate. “Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don’t have the firs

Making sense of the XAT Decision Making Ability section

December 12th, 2018 by

XAT is probably the only leading B-School entrance exam that is not confined only to questions targeted to gauge the candidate’s aptitude, written English communication skills and/or general knowledge. The Decision Making Ability section, that houses about one-third of total questions which determine your percentile (21 out of 72 questions), can make the difference of life and death (read: shortlist and rejection.)

How to tackle Decision Making questions in XAT exam

December 5th, 2018 by

There are several reasons that make XAT a unique exam. The marking scheme is unlike any. Surprise elements galore, as with the decision of XAT 2019 not having the essay-writing section. While the cut-off for XAT never goes too high, it could be because the difficulty level is genuinely top-drawer. This also creates the situation where single topics affecting only a few questions could propel up or even slide down one’s percentile. The result calculation too gets tricky as GK is not counted during the cut-offs, but is an important segment for the final selection. The marking scheme can al

IIFT 2018 Expected Cutoffs – General Knowledge Questions and Answers

December 2nd, 2018 by

IIFT 2018 was conducted today. Given below are the images for the questions from the IIFT General Knowledge section. I think the General Knowledge section was not exceptionally hard and it was on the usual pattern. I think the cutoff for the General Knowledge section is bound to be around 3-4 questions. So, if you solved 3-4 questions in the IIFT GK section and had no errors, you should be able to clear the sectional cutoff. However, for someone who was well prepared with General Knowledge section – he/she should be able to solve 8-10 questions in the GK section. Cutoff for IIFT GK
