|XAT 2014 RESULTS|
The XAT in 2013 brought several changes in the pattern, in that general awareness was included alongside the essay section in Paper-2. There were changes in Paper-1 also. In the previous year, questions carried differential weightage with 1, 1.5 and 2-mark questions. The total number of questions was increased from 85 to 91. The number of questions in decision making remained static at 25. There were eight more questions in the areas of quantitative ability and data interpretation, while logical ability and verbal ability areas had two questions less than the previous edition.
While answering questions based on passages, remember that the answers cannot be merely located within the text of the given passage. So it is not a good move to search for the answers after reading the questions alone. Questions that test a deeper understanding of the presented passage in terms of the opinion of the author, the stance on a controversial issue mentioned in the passage or the intended action that the author hopes to get from his readers after they finish the passage and so on could be asked.
