XLRI announces XAT 2016 results on January 26
XLRI Jamshedpur, the conducting body of XAT, has announced the result for XAT 2016 on January 26, 2016. Candidates can now download their score cards. The score cards share the section wise percentage and percentile of the candidates. The section wise scores were already declared earlier, on January 22 along with the OMR Answer Sheet of the test takers. The XAT Score Card mentions, “General Knowledge percentage and percentile are calculated independently and are not included in the calculation of "Total" percentage and percentile.”
The Xavier’s Aptitude Test (XAT) was conducted on January 3, 2016 in paper-pen based mode across centers.

The original score cards will be sent to the candidates by post to the address provided in the application form. As per the marking scheme of XAT 2016, each question carried 1 mark and for each wrong answer, there was a negative marking of Â¼ of the allotted marks. The candidates were allowed to leave 13 questions un-attempted, beyond which, there was negative marking of 0.05 marks.
XLRI had released the official Answer Keys on January 14. XAT officials admitted to at least one wrong question in the GK section of the test, in the officially released XAT 2016 Answer Key. “Question 77 is withdrawn since the options did not have the right answer,” read a notification on XAT website. Besides this, the official answer key also differed from the answer key already announced by different MBA coaching institutes.
Careers360 probed XAT officials regarding the impact of the withdrawn question on the evaluation process, but the XAT officials went mute, and have not released any information regarding the same. This has kept students amidst about the exact marking scheme followed for evaluating their test sheets. Apparently, XAT officials have not released any statement clarifying the evaluation of marks for the one wrong question in the test.
Besides changes in its marking scheme, this year XAT also underwent changes in its exam pattern. The test was divided in 2 parts, Paper 1 and Paper 2. Paper 1 was completely objective consisting of 3 sections, Quantitative Ability, English Language & Logical Reasoning and Decision Making of 3 hours duration. The Paper 2 was a combination of objective and subjective questions from General Knowledge and Essay Writing respectively. Also the number of questions was decreased.
It is expected that XLRI will release the official cutoff percentiles for the different programmes shortly. The following table brings to you the last year’s cutoffs.

On the basis of the cutoff, candidates will be shortlisted by XLRI Jamshedpur and other XAT participating institutes for the next round of selection process; Group Discussion (GD), Personal Interview (PI) and or Essay Writing/Written Ability Test (WAT) rounds. As many as 141 B-schools will conduct their admissions through XAT 2016 scores

Questions related to XAT
while filling the XAT form for registration do we need to upload the best of 5 marks in 12th or we have to provide with the marks of all the 6 subjects?
While filling the form, I guess there will be a box in that you have to fill out of what score you get this score for example 50 out of 100 so, if you are providing the 6 subject marks so just mention out of 100 you got that if there is no box related to the max. marks (out of ) so you should just provide best 5 marks.
I hope this information will help you
