XAT Papers


Every year Xavier Labour Relations Institute, Jamshedpur conducts the Xavier Admission Test (XAT) for admission to the post graduate management programmes offered by Xavier Institutes. XAT is a national level examination. The score of XAT is also accepted by several other B-schools of national repute. Some of the institutes are S P Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai, Loyola Institute of Business Administration, Chennai, Indian Institute of Finance, New Delhi, and Goa Institutes of Management.

Examination Pattern:

The test is held in single stage and is followed by a Group Discussion and Personal Interview, which are conducted by the specific institute. The questions of the test are multiple choice types. XAT consists of three sections which are Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude (Math), and Verbal Ability (English) and Reading Comprehension. This is followed by a section concerned with essay writing. The pattern is however not fixed and aspiring candidates should always be prepared for the unexpected. The test is of two hours duration. For the essay writing 15-20 minutes extra are provided at the end of the two hours. Students should be careful while attempting questions as negative marking is also there.


As all other major management exams of the country XAT has no specified syllabus as such. But the aim of the test is to judge the verbal ability, quantitative aptitude, and logical reasoning of the candidate. So the aspiring students should prepare likewise.
