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.
