XAT 2023 section-wise preparation strategy tips by toppers
Vandan Shah, who belongs to Surat, Gujarat scored 99.7 percentile in XAT 2020. In an interview with Careers360, Vandan shares his section-wise preparation strategy. He says “I practised a lot from past years XAT question papers. Apart from that, regularly giving the mock tests helped me to decide on how much time I need to allot to each section”. Here is Vandan’s section-wise XAT preparation strategy.
For VARC - This section is a tad tougher than other exams and a lot of questions are inference based as you can see from the past year's trends. So the key is to devote some quality time while reading passages and comprehend them well.
For QA and DI - This section is pretty much similar to other exams like CAT, so just practising questions can help you get the job done.
For DM - This is a make-or-break section for me. I regularly solved past year's papers and analysed how my thinking was different from or aligning with the answer key.
