Academically, students have been surprising the world with their performance and intellectual factors, supporting which we are not required to maintain the long list of alumni spread across the globe. But when it comes to students’ attraction, other factors come into consideration, particularly the non-academic life which starts after the classroom hours.
For an MBA aspirant or student, one of the important factors being Campus Life, they really want to know how exactly they are going to spend their precious two years. Well, here are the insights!
Kaleidoscopic Campus: the routine, the birthdays and the committees
XLRI, being a top B-school in India famous for its HR programme, besides being a place of gruelling and rigourous academic schedule, is a place with ample of opportunity for fun, excitement, creativity and a holistic campus. The best thing about the campus is the emphasis that is laid on sustaining the activities and rituals that become a part of the ‘XL’ culture.
The words ‘Kaleidoscopic Campus’ for XLRI are true to every means. The morning in the campus starts with students rushing to get ready, knocking at fellow students’ doors to wake them up so as they can attend the lectures on time and all the other rush-hush.
Though, the campus gets much livelier after the classes. Well it is exactly when a student life starts, not literally, but of course the fun starts after the long hectic academic schedules, Right! Students can be seen getting charged up with food at the Bishu Da’s, a famous night canteen along with music, gossips and just leisure. But it is not all; the nights also see students rushing from their residence to get the assignments done, or preparing the PPT for the presentations and etc.
The activity with the most fun, especially at midnight is the celebration of birthday parties. This usually involves a customary dip in the pond followed by a barrage of eggs, cakes, kicks and whatever the recipient is unfortunate enough to bring upon the poor birthday child.
There are also regional committees on campus like JMAXI (Jai Maharashtra Association at XLRI), SPAXI (Shere Punjab association at XLRI), and TAXI (Tamil Association at XLRI) which organize indigenous activities like Dahi Handi or other regional dinners.
XLRI also have on campus committees like XLANC and SportsComm who strive to introduce new activities like organizing treks, tying up with local clubs to teach rifle shooting, horse riding and many other adventure activities. There are dedicated committees in the campus that deal with the functional areas such as industrial relations (Fire@x), Human Resource Management (Sapphire), Finance (FINAX) and Marketing (MAXI). All these are actually just few of the insights of a grand Kaleidoscopic Campus of XLRI.
The Super Happening Hangoutsâ¦
XLRI undoubtedly has the most exciting hangouts that any campus can have. Now you might be wondering what exactly makes this campus hangout different from others, as in you can get delicious food in any and every campus. Well, Dah! It’s not just the food that makes this place happening, it’s what you get besides the food.
Soothing in-house music of Bodhi Tree served with delicious food offered at the Bishu Da creating a blissful ambience, all this served in a perfect quantity, is what calls for XLRI having best hangouts.
Dadu’s which is the day canteen can see students having academic discussions, rushing to complete their assignments coupled with the ‘obvious general chatting’ also adds bliss to the campus life.
Well, the two canteens are saviours for the students as the coffee and snacks keep them strong enough to fight with the rigourous academic schedule.
One of the students, Akshay Maxim Sequeira, says, “The delectable snacks keep us going through the night. We also have Dadu’s where we rush to in between classes to sneak a cup of coffee to help us get through the day. He also provides a welcome respite with good snacks as an alternative to the sometimes atrocious mess food”.
A Competitive yet Humble welcome of the Freshersâ¦
We totally understand how at times the word freshers feels like something is about to bang your heads onto something. Don’t worry, gone are those days! Students are now always so enthusiastic to visit their new campus and just start with a diverse life. But one thing is as same as the old days. The feeling and the galore of questions which every single fresher has inside their heads- how are my seniors going to treat me, what about the classes, how the hell my first day gonna be and blah and blah and blah!
Here at XLRI, freshers are treated quite a unique way. There is a Marketing Competition which is especially organized for first year students to break the barriers and develop a bond between seniors and juniors.
It is the most exciting event that happens in the beginning of academic year. Apart from that there are numerous occasions such as Regional Dinners that are organized to welcome the new batch where the old students are the hosts. A unique and approachable way to connect to the new batch, help them maintain their calm and then let them Rock On.
Fest, Events, Competitions and Fairsâ¦
We asked Vinayak Talwar, student of XLRI to tell us about the attractions at XLRI, may be few competitions or activities. To that Vinayak gave us a big list, he says, “Valhalla is the best and biggest Inter B-School competition, and among other events, there is Ensemble, the Managerial Fest of XLRI. The MAXI Fair is another much acclaimed event that takes place once a year. Last year, the main attraction for the MAXI Fair was Ehsaan Qureshi, at Valhalla there was a performance by Benny Dayal and Papon at Ensemble”. Such diverse is the life at XLRI!
XLRI has a few official and non-official closed social pages which the students use to share their thoughts, express their views and do all other gossips and happenings of the campus. The life XLRites live is free, vibrant and similar to something we all have seen in Bollywood as a one big cool and happening campus.
The term free as used, with positivity, describes how students here take every single opportunity in tiny things to make their Campus life larger than anything. They so very well know that their precious years spent in the XLRI campus would never return to them, so they live in each moment, feel the glory of being associated with the XLRI legacy, and the small things they do to set the benchmarks much higher each time.

how can I get admission in XLRI JAMSHEDPUR
Hope you're doing well.
XLRI Jamshedpur conducts its own entrance exam called XAT-Xavier aptitude test, which is followed by an interview and GD.
If you qualify it with a good percentile, you will get a call from the institute for the next step, the interview. However, the selection depends on many factors :- your academic history and background, number of candidates for the exam, etc. You need to have a strong academic background for selections here. It is one of the top B-schools in India.
Subjects to cover for XAT:-
1. Logical reasoning
2. Quantitative aptitude
3. Verbal and nonverbal ability
4. Data interpretation
There are various books available for XAT preparation. You can refer to them. And, don't forget to solve last 10 years' question papers for practice.
All the best:)
Hii, i just want to know that could i get in between fms or xlri . i am from non-engineering background and i have score in 10th is 71 and in 12th is 53 and cat score is 95 percentile . mostly i want to go fms , could i get it ?
Sorry to say but the academic score you have mentioned is pretty low. And as you have not specified your category I am considering it to be Open category and I am answering according to it. The FMS cut off for general category usually ranges from 97 and above percentile. So I guess it might be difficult for you to get a call from FMS. As far as XLRI is concerned, you will have to quality XAT, conducted by the college itself, to be eligible for admission.
Hope that helps.
Can you tell me how much percentile required to get into SP Jain, NITIE Mumbai, and XLRI? Is there any chance of mine getting into an IIMs or any other goverment colleges if yes my academic records are X - 60.8% , XII - 63.6% And UG - 72.77% .
Basically to get admission in top IIM'S you will have to get at last 99 percentile or above, still there is no guarantee that you will achieve it.
Yop IIM's follows two different set of rules. One for Initial calling and otehr for Final Selection. For Initial calling they give 35%-40% weightage to your previous credentials and 60 to 65 to CAT score.
For Final calling they give 10% -20% only and remaining is given to GD, PI and CAT score.
For XLRI you will have to XAT. For SP Jain you need 90-92.
All the best!!
I got 91%/58%/62% in 10th,12th and graduation respectively. I am from SC category. can it be possible to convert admission into any of iims, fms and xlri? how much i will get from 5% of my 12th with 58% marks?
IIms. XLRI and FMS are the top management colleges of India which provide approx 90% campus placement. Most of the students are willing to get admission in these college as these are the best. IIMs are taking students from CAT and XLRI and FMS take the students from their own entrance exam.
Getting admission in management college not only depends on your entrance exam results. It comprises of different curricular activities like Group Discussion, Personal Interview and some colleges also set some points on 10, 12 and graduation marks of the students.
As your 12th and graduation marks are no so strong but you can still get admission in these college, Firstly you have to crack their entrance exam so that they allow you to appear in GD and PI. If you have good speaking as well as thinking skill then you definitely cracks their GD and PI. So don't panic for your less marks in 12th and Graduation. Never loose your hope.
