Preparation strategy for general awareness section:

General Awareness section in XAT exam essentially tests the IQ of a student. This section contains generic questions from current happenings and static GK based questions. One year old events both at national and international levels are also expected. Business (Acquisitions & Mergers), politics, sports, history, awards and distinctions, books - anything could be a part of this section. Regular reading habit and good knowledge on current affairs is the only key to ace this section in XAT exam.

Tips to crack General Awareness section in XAT exam:

  • Keep yourself updated with the current happening by reading newspapers, watching news on television, reading current affairs books etc.
  • Spend at least 1-2 hours every day in practicing question based on general awareness. Practice will help you develop the skills to tackle such problems in an effective manner.
  • Do not concentrate on only 1-2 topics. Preparation in terms of news should be covered from all aspects such as politics, sports, entertainment, awards etc.
  • Try to practice as many free online test for general knowledge you can manage. Neglecting this section can affect your overall performance.
  • You can note down all the current affairs in a note book, which will be helpful for last minute revision.
  • Utilize the internet for keeping yourself up-to-date.
  • Take feedback from people who have taken XAT earlier, read XAT updates on educational blogs and forums, which are quite helpful.
  • Awareness is the only key to ace this section in XAT entrance exam.
