The XLRI-Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur, on Thursday announced that the Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT) 2022 for admission to MBA and post-graduate management courses will be held on January 2 in the online mode.
In a communiqué issued on Thursday, the XLRI, which has been conducting the XAT on behalf of the Xavier Association of Management Institutes for seven decades, said that the registration for the exam will close on November 30, 2021. The registration process began on August 10.
“The test will be of three hours duration between 9.30am and 12.30pm. XAT 2022 will accept applications for XLRI Jamshedpur and XLRI Delhi-NCR campus and a candidate can choose two preferred test cities for the test. More than 100 institutes (mostly Jesuits) are using the XAT score for their respective admission process,” the communiqué said.
“The XLRI has been conducting XAT on behalf of XAMI to select the most suitable students for management education. Though one of the oldest competitive examinations in the country, XAT has always kept pace with the cutting-edge testing methodology. The test’s multidimensional testing framework strives to assess the aptitude of candidates for business management education meaningfully. The XAT has a multi-pronged examination structure and in-built fairness to evaluate candidates aspiring to be future business leaders,” said XLRI director Father Paul Fernandes.
Candidates who have a recognised bachelor’s degree of minimum three years duration or equivalent in any discipline and those completing their final examination by June 10, 2022, may also apply. All Indian candidates can appear for XAT 2022. However, NRI and foreign candidates may apply through their GMAT scores.
