XAT 2015 Paper Pattern has undergone major changes, where the exam is divided in two papers, objective and subjective. Where the Paper I comprises objective, multiple-choice questions from three sections including Quantitative Ability, English Language & Logical Reasoning and Decision Making, the Paper II is of subjective nature comprising General Awareness and Essay Writing sections. Candidates will have 2 hours 20 minutes for Paper I and 40 minutes for Paper II.
Apart from being a pen and paper exam, XAT is considered to be one of the toughest B-School entrance exams to crack. The student appearing for XAT need to focus on General Awareness and should be well-versed with decision making. The students must have good writing skill as they have to write essay along with solving the objective-type questions.
XAT 2015 scores will be used by XLRI Jamshedpur and other Xavier Associate Management Institutes and over 120 B-schools across the country for admission.

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that if you are targetting top colleges accepting XAT score. Then, it is mandatory to clear sectional cutoffs. You need to score well in each section. Moreover, considering past year XAT scores, you should score approximately 26-27.5 score in order to fetch 80-85 percentile in XAT. You can attempt the questions based on accuracy accordingly.
