Well, its time for B-Schools to take up MBA Entrance exams for the academic session 2013-2015. While XAT is going to add an additional section on 'General Awareness' IRMA has changed its pattern with more weightage given to English and analytical Reasoning.

However, the issues of Social concern section will have 20 questions less in the new pattern. The total number of questions is 200 and each of them carries one mark. The duration of the exam is two hours. For detailed note go through the below table :

SECTION NAME No. Of QUESTIONS IN NEW PATTERN No. Of QUESTIONS IN PREVIOUS PATTERN
