XAT is generally scheduled on the first Sunday of January, every year. The paper pattern is usually modified from time to time. This year, there have been few changes like:
- The questions will have five options instead of four options.
- Introduction of questions on ‘Management Decision Making’ involving Case studies.
- Certain questions in the Logical Reasoning section having true/false statements are also removed.
Traditionally, the XAT paper is segregated into three main sections commonly known as:
- Reasoning & Quantitative Aptitude
- General Awareness
