Target XAT 2020 – Strategies to attempt Decision Making Section

December 20th, 2019 by

Now that CAT 2019 is done and dusted, most of us will start preparing for other B-School entrance exams, XAT being the prominent one. XLRI – Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur and many more reputed institutes shortlist candidates for further rounds based on XAT percentile. Its pattern, as well as skills tested, is slightly different from the standard B-school entrance exam. The sections are not just limited to Verbal Ability, Reading Comprehension, Data Interpretation, Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Ability. There are separate sections for Decision Making Ability and General Know


Reading Comprehension for XAT – Guiding Principles to Solve RC Questions

December 19th, 2019 by

The XAT Verbal and Logical Ability section consisted of 13-14 Reading Comprehension (RC) questions out of a total of 26 questions in XATs 2018 and 2019. Therefore, this question type is of utmost importance, if you, the test taker, want to clear the cut offs for this section and secure a high percentile. It is important to know that this section has traditionally been quite difficult and hence the raw scores for clearing the cut offs have always been on the lower side. In cricketing parlance, appearing for the XAT Verbal and Logical Ability section is akin to a batsman walking out to bat


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,


XAT Syllabus – Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation

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
