Counselling: XAT 2023

The score on the XAT(Xavier Aptitude Test) and the student’s academic record are used to decide who gets into XLRI. Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) are part of the process for getting into XLRI. They take place in February in Delhi, Kolkata, Jamshedpur, and Bangalore. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only PI has been done online since 2020. But the process for getting into XLRI in 2023 is likely to be done the old way, with a face-to-face interview.

The first step in getting into XLRI is signing up for the XAT exam. Candidates who pass the XAT exam and meet the admissions cut-off must fill out an online form to show that they want to take part in the GD/PI part of the XLRI selection process. The admissions committee looks at a candidate’s academic profile to decide who to shortlist. Those who made the shortlist are asked to take part in the GD/PI round. Those who pass the GD/PI round are given final admission. The application period for the XAT(Xavier Aptitude Test) 2023 started on August 10 and will end on November 30, 2022. The XAT(Xavier Aptitude Test) will be given on January 8, and the results will be released on January 31, 2023. In February 2023, the shortlist for XLRI will be made.
