XAT 2017, held by XLRI Jamshedpur for admission to their business management and human resource management programmes, was conducted successfully today, January 8. The XAT score is considered for admission by more than 150 B-Schools across India.

 

The candidates can check the expected cut-off for XAT 2017 mentioned below:

  • The overall cutoff for XLRI-BM is expected to increase slightly to around 32-34
  • The cutoff for the PMIR programme is also expected to be slightly higher, at around 30-32.

Part I of the test comprised three sections viz., verbal and logical ability, decision making and analytical reasoning, and quantitative aptitude and data interpretation. Part II had questions from general knowledge and an essay to be written. The overall duration of the test was 170 minutes for the first part and 35 minutes for the second.

All questions carried equal marks with negative marking (one fourth of a mark for a wrong answer). There was a negative marking of 0.05 for un-attempted questions, for such questions over and above 12. The negative marks would be deducted proportionately across the three sections.

The section on general knowledge did not have any negative marking. General awareness and essay writing will be used for evaluation only after the initial screening, i.e., these will not be used for the short listing of candidates for the GDPI round.
