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. The test pattern for Common Admission Test (CAT), the gateway to IIM's and other top B-schools, will however, remain unchanged.

Changes in IRMA : The Entrance Examination pattern for the academic year 2013-15 will have more weightage being attached to the English comprehension and analytical reasoning sections. At the same time, the weightage on the issues of social concern section will get reduced.

The IRMA entrance examination will be held on 11th November, 2012. The English comprehension and analytical reasoning sections will have 10 more questions compared with previous years.

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
