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.

An MBA or PGDM or the likes in India equip one with the technical expertise and frameworks to be successful leaders and managers.

It dedicates a separate Decision Making section that comprises of small case studies or situations, which seem almost certain to happen to you or someone you know. However, given a finite narrative and then, having to choose the best possible course of action can’t p

Making sense of the XAT Decision Making Ability section

December 8th, 2019 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.) Obviously, like every other section, one needs to at least clear the minimum cutoff for this section too but it can skew your percentile and be a game changer. It is therefore i

XAT Syllabus – Verbal and Logical Ability

December 7th, 2019 by

Verbal and Logical Ability is perhaps the most difficult section in the XAT exam. First of all, the name throws off a bunch of aspirants who have come to expect a certain kind of questions when they see the term ‘Logical Ability’ or ‘Logical Reasoning’. However, the questions that get asked in the Verbal section of the XAT exam are completely different. They aren’t your usual questions on LR but are closely related to questions on Critical Reasoning. Sometimes, the term that is used in XAT is ‘Analytical Reasoning’, which I believe is slightly more accurate. Having said that,

December 5th, 2019 by

Quantitative Aptitude is perhaps the most important section in the XAT exam. While some of you might argue that it is Decision Making that is most important because it is new and something that you haven’t practiced for, I wouldn’t agree to that. The simple reason being the number of questions. If you look at XAT past year papers over the last 5 years, you will find that the number of questions in the Quantitative Aptitude section were maximum every year. Let’s have a look at the quantitative aptitude syllabus and other details in the video and the article that is given below. X

XAT Decision Making Section – Golden Principles for tackling questions related to Management Issues

December 3rd, 2019 by

The decision-making section of XAT paper is rightly considered a scoring section that can really boost your percentile. It is an important section not just because of the sectional cutoff that one needs to clear but also because completing this section quickly will give you more time for quant and verbal section. The questions generally comprise of a short case study write-up and related questions. Though any real-life situation is generally considered to be an open-ended problem with no right or wrong answers, that perception could not be further away from the truth. There are insta
