Ashi - This is my first attempt and I am pretty much prepared to face the exam. Would be banking on Decision Making (DM) section, however, I’m not very confident about the Quantitative section. I started to prepare for XAT around 6 months back and looking forward to get admission to either Great Lakes or Jagan Institute of Management Studies (JIMS). I am a fresh graduate.

Shivani - I appeared for XAT 2019 for the very first time. Currently, I am working in a startup organisation, so due to lack of time prepared for the exam all by myself. However, I took a good number of test series. My strongest section is Verbal, while Quantitative section is the weakest among all sections. Apart from XAT 2019, I have appeared for CAT 2018 and SNAP 2018.

Kartik - I am a fresh graduate and would be appearing for XAT 2019 for the first time. I am quite confident about my XAT 2019 preparation and hoping to fare well.

Mahima - I appeared for XAT 2019 for the very first time. There was no technical glitch in my exam centre. Overall the exam was fine, however, I found the English section to be the toughest followed by Decision Making (DM) section. The GK section was doable. I am happy that the essay writing has been removed from XAT exam pattern 2019. I scored 90 percentile in CAT 2018.

Tanisha - The difficulty level of XAT 2019 was moderate. The most difficult section was Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation (QA & DI). This was my first attempt. Overall, I would rate XAT 2019 to be from moderately difficult to difficult.

Sonam - I found XAT 2019 to be quite easy. However, the most difficult section was Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation (QA & DI). I am hoping to fetch a good percentile in XAT 2019.

Nishant -  This was my first attempt and I found the questions on QA and DI easy. However, the Verbal section was difficult for me. The Decision Making section was quite exhaustive due to the multiple sequencing orders. I am happy with my performance. Apart from XAT 2019, I had appeared for CAT 2018.

Bhawna - I appeared for XAT 2019 for the very first time and found Data Interpretation (DI) and General Knowledge (GK) sections to be easy. Also, the Reading Comprehension passages were quite simple and easy to solve. I have attempted 12 QA questions.

i had 6 subjects in 12th how do i calculate the aggregate of 12th class for filling in XAT FORM

ashutosh gupta 8th Nov, 2019

Hi rohhan

Xat is a national level entrance exam. Through xat you can get admission in best business schools of india like xlri jamshedpur, xmb bhubneshwar and ximb banglore.

You can sum up the marks of all the 6 subjects and than you can find out the percentage or the cgpa whatever the case may be and then you can add the information in the form.


Do we need to fill the college forms before appearing for XAT exam? Also if we missed to fill the college form, we can not apply for any college?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 7th Nov, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

While filling the form candidates will be required to enter their program details which they would like to opt for. Aspirants can choose from the following courses:

  • Business Management

  • Human Resource Management

  • General Management Programme (A minimum of 56 months of work experience is compulsory as on March 31,2020)

  • Fellow Programme in Management

As the candidate will select the programme, the form will ask to fill the first preference of campus for each programme.

So you have to fill the college preference before hand, however there are many other colleges accepting XAT score for whom you do not have to fill the separate forms.

Hope this helps, thanks.

For admission in tapmi 2020 , what is the admission process after appearing cat/xat exam?

ashutosh gupta 9th Nov, 2019
  1. TAPMI eligibility criteria require that the candidate must hold a bachelor's degree of minimum 3 years duration, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA
  2. TAPMI uses CAT/XAT/GMAT scores for shortlisting the candidates for Post-graduate Programmes in Management. Accordingly, the candidate should be registered for CAT 2019/XAT 2020 or Taken GMAT and must score well to become eligible for admission.
  3. If the candidate is awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the equivalence to determine PGDM admission eligibility would be based on the equivalence certified by the institution/university from where the bachelor's degree is obtained. In case the institution/university does not have any scheme for converting the CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by TAPMI by dividing the obtained CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the resultant by 100 to confirm the Admission eligibility of the candidate.
  4. A candidate appearing for the final year bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed the degree requirements and are awaiting results is also eligible to apply for TAPMI Admission 2020.
  5. It is mandatory for a final year student, who is provisionally considered eligible by TAPMI and offered admission, to submit the mark-sheet and degree certificate of the final year bachelor's degree examination latest by the stipulated date as announced by TAPMI
