About X-GMAT (II): This will be similar to X-GMAT already conducted on January 10th. This online X-GMAT test is of 120 minutes duration. The test will consist of four sections namely quantitative ability (QA), data interpretation (DI), comprehension & logical reasoning (CLR) and emotional quotient (EQ). The type and nature of questions will be similar to the other prominent entrance tests for management education. The medium of the test is in English language for all candidates. The sections during the test will appear in random sequence and there will be sectional time limits, which means a candidate will not know the next section and has to complete a section in a given time. If a candidate finishes any section early, (s)he has to wait for the next section to begin.
The broad based selection process takes into account the academic performance, relevant work experience, writing ability and performance during personal interview.
