When is the Xaviers entrance test for Bachelors of Mass Media and Communications?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 28th Oct, 2019

It's around in the month of May, mostly in the third week of May.

So in order to crack this exam you should prepare the following topics:

  • You should be thorough with all the rules of english grammer and practice sentence corrections, phrasal verbs, idioms, jumbled sentence and vocabulary.
  • Learn the logos of the major brands, presidents and CEOs and editors of news channels, newspaper, compaines
  • Knowledge of current affairs: This will be helpful both in subjective as well as objective sections. As in subjective question you’ll have to write an essay on any of the major events.
  • Practice on improving your writing skills

I think this might help and don’t worry guys paper will be manageable.

Best wishes. Thank you.
