XAT is considered more difficult than other MBA entrance exams. Its scoring pattern of +1 mark for each correct answer and -0.25 mark negative marking makes it difficult to score beyond 35-40 marks. Moreover, since last year the XAT has gone green with computerised format and  number of questions which determine the percentile score in XAT have been reduced to total 74. The difficulty level as well as reduced number of questions fetch high percentile at low scores in XAT exam.
