XAT 2019 Student Reactions : PRE- XAT 2019 Reactions

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.

XAT 2019 Student Reactions : POST- XAT 2019 Reactions

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.
