One of the main things that confuses aspirants who have never taken XAT before is the lack of clear cut demarcation among various sections. For example, while CAT sections are named as verbal, quantitative and data interpretation, XAT sections are named as “Data Interpretation and Quantitative Ability”, “Analytical Reasoning and Decision Making” and “Verbal and Logical Ability”. Moreover there are questions on ethical decision making which is something that an aspirant does not ever see in CAT or during its preparation. There is also marked difference in the difficulty level. XAT questions are much more simpler than CAT questions. This is the reason the team strongly recommends that aspirants should take XAT 2008 paper and critically analyze its structure to avoid surprises during the exam.
