The number of questions is distributed evenly between the sections, with the Quantitative Ability section usually carrying a slightly larger section of the pie. The distribution of questions in XAT 2013 is as follows:
NUMBER OF QUESTIONS
A: Verbal Ability
B: Decision Making
C: Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation
The paper has sectional cut-offs decided on the marks scored by all the students. According to experts, the difficulty level is also a few notches higher than that of most exams. “With the inclusion of the General Awareness section this year in the main examination, unlike in the previous year when it was clubbed with the essay section, for which another additional 30 minutes were allotted, the first-timers might feel overwhelmed,” says Career Launcher Vice President Gautam Puri.
The marking scheme is most likely to be similar to that of last year, with all questions carrying equal marks and a penalty of 25% of the marks allotted to the question for every wrong answer.
The XAT 2014 result will be declared in the last week of January, 2014.
