This time XLRI surprised by reducing the number of questions.
Quantitative Ability – 28 Q’s
English Language Ability and Logical Reasoning – 32 Q’s
Decision Making – 25 Q’s
Total number of Q’s = 85
As usual 2 Hrs. for this and 20 minutes for the “Analysis of the given two statements” section
Even though differential marking is given, it is not that much influential when compared to the XAT-2011. Maximum marks given to question is 2 and the marks allotted to the Q’s range in 1,1.5 and 2 marks.
Negative Marking: it is straight forward. ¼th of the marks allotted to each question
QA is of moderate difficulty level. This is much easier compared to XAT-2011 QA section and is in similar levels of XAT-2009 and 2010.
English section is of “Easy to Moderate” difficulty level.
DM is tough. The case lets are lengthy and the answer options are not so choosy. Overall, this section is very difficult to crack.
Overall, XLRI-2012 can be rated as “moderate to tough”
