Apart from CAT, there are a few other exams as well that can book you a berth in your favourite B-school. Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT) is one such exam. It is conducted by XLRI Jamshedpur every year for admission to their management program. There are many other high-quality institutions across the country who accept XAT score for admission. IMT Ghaziabad, SP Jain Mumbai, FORE Delhi, GIM Goa, TAPMI, and Great Lakes Chennai are some of the colleges that accept XAT score. You should apply for multiple exams to improve your chances of getting into a good B-school.

The examination pattern for XAT is a bit different from that of CAT with subtle similarities. The difficulty level is more or less the same. This paper consists of 4 components, namely, Verbal and logical ability, Decision making, Quantitative ability and data interpretation, and General knowledge. The General Knowledge section is not used for calculating percentile and does not have negative marking. Also, the part of decision making is unique to XAT. There used to be an essay writing section which has been scrapped off. The aggregate maximum marks in XAT are 99 for 99 questions divided in 4 parts. Each correct answer will get you a +1 mark, and each wrong answer will attract the penalty of -0.25 mark. The total time duration for the XAT exam is 3 hours. Interestingly, there is no sectional time limit here. 

Just like CAT, systematic and planned preparation under the counsel of experienced instructors is critical to success in XAT. Your CAT preparation will include many components of XAT, as well. However, topics like decision making that are unique to XAT will require your special attention. You should not make a mistake of taking the Decision-Making component lightly, and you must practice it side by side with other topics. Make a study plan and stick to it. You will get an excellent score.
