XAT Decision Making – Free Class on Sunday 11 December

December 7th, 2016 by

Decision Making is perhaps the most important area when it comes to XAT preparation. Questions on Decision Making have been asked in XAT for quite a few years. However, their importance has gone up drastically since 2012. Before that, you could expect 8 to 10 questions on Decision Making in the Analytical Reasoning section. In 2012, Decision Making became a section of its own and if you were to look at it purely from a scoring perspective – it make the most important topic for a student who is planning to write the XAT.

Everything you need for IIFT GK – Free mock, past papers, pattern, and cutoffs

November 22nd, 2016 by

IIFT exam is less than a week away and quite a few students are worried about the General Knowledge section.

Even if you can dedicate 10-15 hours towards General Knowledge preparation, rest assured you will clear the cutoff. As a matter of fact, you should b
