XAT 2018 Test and XLRI Jamshedpur Application Process

Dear MBA Aspirants,

The XAT 2018 and XLRI-Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur’s MBA 2018-20 notifications is out!

About XAT: Xavier Aptitude test (XAT) is a national level management aptitude test. XLRI conducts XAT on behalf of the XAMI. For more than 60 years XLRI is conducting XAT at all India level to select the most appropriate students for management education. The XAT score is being used by more than 150 institutes for the admission.

New XAT 2018 shall be conducted online unlike past years whereby it used to be conducted in pen and paper based format.

About XLRI: XLRI was founded in 1949 by Fr. Quinn Enright, S.J. in the Steel City of Jamshedpur. Over many years XLRI has developed its own identity. The hallmark of this identity is, not to walk on the beaten path but to strike new routes; not to benchmark but to be benchmarked, to be second to none but to be the first to respond to the needs of the people and the nation, by taking up the tasks which are bold but necessary which nobody has hitherto taken up. This enterprising and pioneering spirit can be witnessed throughout the history of XLRI.

The application process for XAT and XLRI-Xavier School of Management is with the same application form by paying an additional amount as per the choice of XLRI program.

Following are the test registration and details and a comparative study between XAT 2018 and XAT 2017 registration.
