XAT which is most admired exam after CAT in INDIA for admission in B-school is just 15 days away. Before making any strategy to fight the XAT-battle, go through previous year XAT trend.
Going by XAT pattern from XAT -2006 to XAT-2010 we can make out that XAT has reduced number of Questions from 127 in XAT 2006 to 101 in XAT 2010. Talking about difficulty level it has been maintained more or less same over the last five years.
Most relaxing part is that negative marking which was as high as 1/2 or 1/3rd in XAT-2006 to XAT-2009 had been reduced to 1/4th for first five incorrect answer then 1/5th for each incorrect answer thereafter in XAT-2010.
Down below i have given some links for analysis by other institute , past year XAT papers and some sample papers for XAT.
