Status quo for XAT, ATMA; XLRI GDPI in Feb-March: XLRI Director
Reacting to the AICTE notification of December 28, 2010 or the question of the existence of XAT in the upcoming years, the Director of XLRI Jamshedpur, Dr. E Abrabaham said that the AICTE notification does not have any impact on XAT.
The recent AICTE notification which was issued on December 28, 2010 gave out eight points for regulating the PGDM courses in India. This gave rise to huge confusion in the minds of the management fraternity pertaining to the fact that XAT, the MBA entrance exam conducted by XLRI Jamshedpur would be scrapped off.
Reacting to the notification or the question of the existence of XAT in the upcoming years, the Director of XLRI Jamshedpur, Dr. E Abrabaham said that the AICTE notification does not have any impact on XAT. “AICTE Notification is ambiguous. But it doesn’t have an impact on XAT. XAT is recognized a national management exam, and will continue to function as it is,” Dr. Abraham said.
The XAT exam for this year has already been conducted and the admission will start soon. “XAT 2011 is already over. Next XAT will also be conducted as per regular schedule,” Dr. Abraham informed. XAT is conducted every year in the first Sunday of January.
XAT 2011 results have been declared on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. XLRI is moving forward with its admission process. “Next round is the GD PI. The process will be held from the third week of February to Match for XLRI,” Dr. Abraham informed.
