The XAT exam eligibility over the years has remained unchanged. XLRI has not changed the XAT Exam Eligibility Criteria 2021 either. Usually applicants miss on two things - XAT Exam Eligibility and Syllabus for XAT. While clarity on XAT exam eligibility will help you to apply for the exam in time, preparing as per XAT syllabus will get you through the exam.

XAT Exam Eligibility Criteria 2021: Detailed Notes

No Age Bar: XAT Exam eligibility criteria 2021 prescribe ‘No Age Bar’ to appear in the XAT 2021 exam. Going along the XAT Eligibility Criteria, XLRI also does not restrict any candidate to seek admission on the basis of age and qualification.

 

No Minimum Qualifying Marks: According to XAT Eligibility Criteria 2021, a candidate is eligible to appear in XAT 2021, if he/she holds recognized Bachelor’s Degree with minimum 3 years duration or equivalent in any discipline.

 

XAT Eligibility Criteria & XLRI Eligibility are same: This is very important since the eligibility criteria in exams like CAT and eligibility criteria for admission to IIMs are different. While CAT allows 2 years of graduation degree without age bar, IIMs require minimum 3 years graduation degree which imposes hidden age bar. However, the XAT exam eligibility 2021 and the XLRI admission eligibility 2021 are same. On the pattern of XAT eligibility criteria, XLRI also does not impose minimum marks restriction in applying for the PGDM course.

Certificate from Institution Head will Suffice for Admission: As per the XAT eligibility criteria, the candidates in final year of Bachelor’s Degree, if selected, will be allowed to join the programme provisionally. Clarifying further, the  XAT Eligibility Criteria 2021 describe that, if the candidate submits a certificate from the Principal/ Registrar of the College/Institute stating that the candidate has completed all the requirements for obtaining the bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification on the date of the issue of the certificate, he/she fulfils the XAT Eligibility.

 

XAT 2021 Exam Eligibility for NRIs: While XAT 2021 eligibility criteria for domestic candidates require the candidates to appear in XAT 2021, which is the mandatory exam for admission to member and associate B-schools for Indian candidates for MBA/PGDM 2021-23 batch, the XAT exam eligibility for NRI and foreign candidates is relaxed as they may apply through their valid GMAT scores.

  • The candidate applying for XAT 2021 must fulfil one of the following XAT eligibility criteria

            A. Completed Bachelor’s degree, or
            B. Completed professional degree (CA/CS/ICWA), or
            C. Should be in the final year of Bachelor’s degree

  • In case of grades / CGPA, the conversion to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure as certified by the respective University/ institution in accordance with the XAT exam eligibility criteria.
  • Mere fulfilment of minimum XAT eligibility criteria will not ensure consideration for short listing by XLRI, XIMB, IMT, TAPMI or other B-schools in which the applicant applies for admission
  • One of the key points prescribed by XLRI  in XAT eligibility criteria is that the candidates must declare and maintain a valid and unique email account and a phone number throughout the selection process
  • While getting ready for XAT, please make sure that you know about both - the XAT Exam Eligibility and Syllabus for XAT exam to enable you to prepare for the exam
