XLRI: Xavier’s School of Management (XLRI) conducts its very own XAT test for admissions procedures. XAT consists of a written test, group discussion, and personal interview process. Students are selected based on merit. XLRI does not follow the reservation policy for seats. All admission based decisions are dependent on the merit of students as performed in XAT.
