XAT Pattern 2019

“The exam pattern of XAT has changed this year. From XAT 2019 onwards, there will be no Essay situs judi slot online gampang menang Writing section in the exam. The question paper will consist of four section, Decision Making, Verbal & Logical Ability and Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation and General Knowledge.
Earlier, the XAT question paper used to have two parts. First part consisted of Decision Making, Verbal and Logical Ability and Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation; the second part consisted of General Knowledge and Essay Writing. Now that the essay writing has been scrapped, the XAT 2019 question paper will contain only one section and four subjects: Decision Making, Verbal and Logical situs judi slot terbaik dan terpercaya no 1 di dunia Ability, Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation and General Knowledge.

The essay writing consisted of one question and was allotted 40 mins along with General Knowledge which has 25 MCQs. In XAT 2019, the number of General Knowledge questions will remain 25 but Decision Making will have one more question to round up the total to 100.

This is the second time that XAT exam pattern has slot gacor terbaru changed within four years. Some changes were introduced in the exam pattern in 2016 as well”.

Below mentioned are the XAT 2019 sections:

Sections/ Number of Questions Total marks Total time
Decision Making (22 questions) 100 3 hours
Verbal and Logical Ability (26 questions)
Quantitative Ability & Data  Interpretation (27 questions)
