Tips for XAT Exam

To crack XAT it is very important to understand the  paper. Look for changes in the pattern of XAT  exam by comparing with previous year papers. As per the sources XAT had more questions than the CAT exam to be solved in lesser time in recent past and in XAT it is more advisable to drop tough questions, and find the easier ones to solve first. Thus, selection of easier questions is very important. Have a strategy that has room for last minute changes, so that it keeps you calm and confident with paper having changes in the pattern.
