IIFT 2016 exam is just around the corner. While your preparation for Quant and Verbal must be great, it is important that you do not neglect General Knowledge. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to find a student who has cleared the overall cutoff for IIFT but missed out because he / she did not clear the sectional cutoff for GK. Before you ask - Yes! There is a sectional cutoff for GK in IIFT. It is on the lower side but it is definitely there.
I will discussing some ideas around General Knowledge Preparation for IIFT in the free class on Thursday (8 PM). MISB Bocconi, a Mumbai

First of all, I hope that your XAT 2016 exam went well. The results for the CAT 2015 exam are less than a week away and I fully understand that this is a strange time for you. You might be feeling uneasy with butterflies in your stomach. But trust me - "this too shall pass" and hopefully this time passes in your favor.
Coming to the topic at hand, Decision Making questions in XAT are often confusing. So much so that most coaching institutes differ in their answers. Last year, XAT released an official answer key. I hope that they do it this time around as well. Given below are the answe
In the month of November, I decided to make small videos (

5 Important changes in the new pattern for XAT 2016
1. Total number of questions - 78
2. Total time - 170 minutes (20 minutes more than last time)
3. Difficulty level - Reduced. Traditionally XAT has been the toughest MBA Entrance Exam in India int terms of content. The questions have always been harder than CAT / IIFT or any other management entrance exam that you can think of. It is a good sign that they will be reducing the difficulty level this year
4. Negative Marking for unattempted questions First 13 unattempted questions will have no negative marking. After that, 0.05 mar
One of the most common suggestions that I give students who are preparing for XAT is that they should focus on Decision Making and give at least one hour every day to prepare for it in the last month. The easiest way to do it is to go through previous year papers. To make it easy for students, I decided to put all the previous year papers of XAT Decision Making in a PDF. You can download that PDF by filling up this simple form given below. Also, the entire question set is also available on this page for your viewing. While I have tried to be careful in copy pasting the answers, I might have
General Knowledge or GK plays an important role in both XAT and IIFT exams. We have an online course for GK for XAT and IIFT which has helped 5000+ students over the past couple of years. However, in this particular post I am primarily going to talk about the question bank or PDF that I have complied for XAT / IIFT GK. This is a collection of questions that have been asked in the XAT and IIFT exams over the past three years. This PDF includes:
IIFT GK Paper for 2012 exam
IIFT GK Paper for 2013 exam
IIFT GK Paper for 2014 exam
XAT GK Paper for 2013 exam
XAT GK Paper for 2014 exam
I hope your XAT exam went well. A lot of students mailed, messaged, called, and even whatsapped (Ah! The world we live in) asking for an answer key for the Decision Making part. Considering that there were four different sets and just writing A / C will not help anyone, I though I would come up with the answer key / solutions in a slightly different way.
Given below is the XAT 2015 answer key and detailed solutions for the Decision Making section. For each set, I have put up some key identifiers first. Then I have listed out the correct answer as well as an explanation for the same. Ho
So your CAT result wasn’t as good as you expected? Or was it much better than your expectations? And do you also HAVE TO go to that New Year bash? Well, whatever the case may be – you should not forget that you have a very important exam this weekend. XAT scores are accepted by a huge set of colleges. Few of those colleges like XLRI and XIMB are as good as some of the IIMs. Some might argue that they are better than some of the IIMs as well. XAT, in terms of content, is different from CAT. A lot of students believe that it is tougher than CAT. Well, it is not. The number of people appe
