XAT Selection & Counselling 2018

Each XAT Score Accepting College follows its individual selection procedure. While some admit students directly upon their XAT Result, some hold further scrutiny rounds. These rounds help filter out the best students from the crowd. 

Read below the stages of the pre-admission process. Most Management Institutes have both these stages:

  1. Group Discussion (GD)
  2. Personal Interview (PI)

The majority of management colleges now give higher weightage to a candidate’s performance in the written test. This is so because it is easier to judge a candidate’s viewpoints while he is writing, unlike in GD/PI. Also, a soft-spoken candidate often loses his chance in a GD round. So, we advise you to prepare well for all these rounds to the best of your ability.

Post these selection rounds, selected candidates appear for XAT Counselling. For XAT 2018, the counselling rounds are expected to begin March. While participating in the counselling rounds, make sure you bring along the following documents:

  1. Counselling letter with Xerox copy
  2. XAT Admit card with Xerox copy
  3. Original certificates of 10th, 12th with Xerox Copy
  4. Medical documents
  5. XAT Rank Card
  6. All original certificates in concern to preceding qualification
  7. Caste certificates for the reserved category
  8. At least new six passport size black and white and color photographs

We hope all deserving candidates get into the top colleges accepting XAT score. Good luck!
