XAT 2013 Exam Preparation Tips & Tricks:-

XAT 2013 Paper Pattern:- The first step for a focused XAT 2013 preparation is to understand the XAT 2012 paper. The most important thing is to keep looking for changes in the pattern of XAT 2013 exam. XAT 2013 paper pattern can be gauged from XAT sample papers and practice papers available online. They are a good way for getting familiar with the kind of questions that are expected to be in XAT 2013.

Divide Lessons into categories of Easy & Difficult:- This is not just in reference to XAT 2013 or any other specific paper. While preparing for any competitive exam, one of the important preparations step should be to categorize the lessons or topics into two broad categories, i.e. easy and difficult. Chapters under these categories would be different for different individuals. This will give you a clearer picture of chapters that need more focus and the ones that need expertise.

Flexible Strategy:- While all students are busy designing their own strategy for XAT 2013, it is important to note that the paper is designed to have some element that is new. The whole idea behind having something different about the paper each year is to have an idea of the candidate’s ability to manage change. Have a strategy that has room for last minute changes.

With the above pointers in mind while preparing for XAT 2013, a candidate needs to have the right strategy, 70% accuracy and confidence on himself and his preparation. XAT registration last date is still far and so is the examination. So if you are still planning a strategy for XAT 2011, do incorporate the points mentioned above.

Focus areas:-

XAT primarily tests three areas -- your decision making abilities, working under pressure and deadlines, and the ability to capitalise on ones' strengths.

The above-mentioned qualities are prerequisites for a good manager and a part and parcel of every manager's life. Hence, if you look at the questions asked, they are designed to test these qualities. Those who can demonstrate these qualities during the two hours are the ones who make it.

There are a few things one needs to keep in mind, which can help in getting that coveted selection.

Psychological factors:-

The statistics being bandied around -- such as only 1 of 250 makes it into XLRI -- can rattle a candidate. It is very important not to be intimidated by them. If the number of serious aspirants is taken into account, the number would drastically fall. Understand that the exam is designed to measure your ability to maintain a level head under pressure. So avoid getting demoralised or disheartened by such statistics. It's not as much an examination of your knowledge base as much as it is of your nerves. Maintain a cool head during the examination.


This does not come overnight. Studying all topics to be covered, practicing DI and quantitative problems is of utmost importance. While this builds up your speed and analytical skills, more importantly, it gives you much-needed confidence needed to crack the exam. After you have attempted 10 to 15 mock papers, identify your strong and weak areas. You should know which section to start with and which areas to attack first in each section. Set your time limits. Do not spend time on a question from an area you are not comfortable with. That time can be utilised to get you points from a section you know better.

Also, during an exam, if you feel the section is too tough, remember that if it is tough for you, it is tough for everybody else. Never forget this golden rule. Solving a question is not an ego issue. Understand that the marks allotted to that question are not higher than those awarded to others.

Flexible strategy:-

There are a few things you should keep in mind when you go into the examination hall. Never try to predict the paper or close your options by forming a strategy for a particular pattern. A paper like XAT will always give you a shock when you see the instructions and, unfortunately, 30 to 35 per cent of candidates lose out then and there.

It is important to keep a cool head, take time to form your strategy and go through the whole paper once before starting with any particular section. Spend the first three minutes scanning through the entire paper, so there are no rude surprises awaiting you. This serves a dual purpose. It gives you a general feel of the difficulty level and, as you write, helps your mind subconsciously condition itself for the paper.


Maintaining an accuracy level of at least 75 to 80 per cent is very important. This also gives you the leeway to, once in a while, mark an option based on chance. Taking a reasonable chance based on a guess is fine, but avoid overdoing it. The penalty of negative marking is very high, so use your luck judiciously.
