XAT Answer Key 2019

XAT 2019 Answer keys will be released by XLRI in mid-January 2019, much before declaration of XAT 2019 result on January 25, 2019. Since, XAT 2019 is a single session exam on January 6, 2019, it would be easy for XLRI, the XAT 2019 conducting institute to release the XAT answer keys 2019 for all the 100 XAT questions as against the exams which are held in multiple sessions on multiple days.

 

In the 60 years history of Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT), the XAT answer keys Pdf was released for the first time in January 2015 for XAT exam. The official XAT solutions 2019 will contain the XAT answer keys for all the questions across all the four sets of test papers. XAT previous year question paper with solutions were released for XAT exam on January 13, 2015 for the first time.

 

XAT Answer Key PDF
Going by the past trends, XAT Solutions 2019 by XLRI will consist of the XAT answer keys for the questions in those sections which are counted for percentile calculation. However, since XAT is now a computer based online test and there are no division of Part A or B in the exam after the removal or Essay Writing Test, it is expected that XLRI might release the XAT 2019 answer keys for all the 100 questions for all the sections including GK section.   

 

Number of questions in XAT exam for all the sections are now reduced to maximum 100 as against more than 100 in past years. In case the XAT solutions 2019 are released only for three core sections in XAT 2019 exam, the total number of XAT 2019 answer keys per question set would be around 72-73.

 

XAT previous year Question paper with solutions
XAT answer keys which were released for the first time in 2015 had 84 answers. Total questions in XAT at that time were 114. There were 4 question paper sets titled A, B, C, D in XAT and XLRI had also released a separate document which contains only answer keys in respect to each set of XAT questions as well as all the 4 sets of question papers with solutions.

Earlier, when XAT used to be paper based test, candidates were allowed to take the question booklet with them. Accordingly XAT answer keys helped them to very well assess their position and could judge the scores they would be going to get based on the accuracy of the answered questions.  The detailed XAT solutions with explanations also helped the test takers in ascertaining their chances to be shortlisted by XLRI, SPJIMR or other top rated B schools and also provided them guidance for the future.

 

However, with the computerized XAT exam now, XLRI is required to release the  XAT 2019 Question Papers  with solutions  pdf as only XAT answer keys may not suffice.
