  • Recognized Bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years of duration in any discipline
  • Candidate completing their final year examination of Graduation by June 10, 2017 can also apply

Age Factor in XAT Exam

The new change in the XAT exam states that a candidate of any age can sit in the exam if they are graduates with minimum 3 years of graduation degree.To some, it may mean that a 70-year-old person is eligible to apply too.But there is a hidden age limit factor here.Till the early 80’s,universities awarded Bachelor’s degree of 2 years in duration.Hence,candidates possessing a graduation degree which is of 2 years in duration are not eligible to apply.
