XAT officials have said that the XAT 2016 Result will be announced after receiving any feedback that XAT takers may have on the OMR answer sheet made available by XAT authorities. 


As per the marking scheme, each question carries 1 mark and for each wrong answer, there is negative marking of ¼ of the allotted marks. The test takers were allowed to leave out 13 questions, beyond which each un-attempted question will bear negative marking of 0.05 marks. This year, as per the exam pattern, the exam was divided in 2 parts - Paper 1 and Paper 2. Paper 1 was completely objective consisting of 3 sections - Quantitative Ability, English Language & Logical Reasoning and Decision Making. The paper 1 was of 3-hour duration. The Paper 2 was a combination of objective and subjective questions from General Knowledge and Essay Writing respectively. The duration of this paper was 30 minutes.

Careers360 had reported that official answer key of XAT 2016 carries varied responses as compared the answer keys released by different coaching institutes. XAT officials, however, said that a review committee of 5 experts found no discrepency in the official answer keys. This means that XAT takers will be evaluated on the basis of official answer key released by XAT authorities earlier.

So my situation is this, i have 47% in graduation and got 80 percentile in XAT, so this is limiting my options for admissions in mba colleges. What should i do?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 2nd Mar, 2020

Dear aspirant,

Yes this will limit your options for admission in MBA colleges as most of these MBA colleges look at past academic performance of the candidate. Your percentage will definitely be a hindrance in your admission into any top IIM college or XLRI.

You can always take admission in tier 2/3 management colleges.

Hope this helps. Thank you.
