Strategy for XAT – Decision Making

Decision Making has been a regular part of XAT in recent years. It is asked in the form of passages that are followed by one or more questions pertaining to it. The answer options to these questions are pretty close and you will be compelled to think twice, before answering the question.

In the past few years, XAT has seen an increase in the number of questions on Decision Making. This makes Decision Making an important factor in clearing percentile cut-offs. Unfortunately, a lot of students don’t know how to prepare for this section, and end up with low scores for this section. Lack of Knowledge and a lack of time invested in preparing, are the reasons for low scores in Decision Making.
