How to Download XAT Answer Key and Response Sheet 2023?

XLRI, Jamshedpur uploaded the XAT answer key 2023 and question paper on XAT website on January 10. Candidates can access their respective XAT response sheet along with the question paper and official answer key. Here’s the process to download XAT answer key:

  • Open XAT 2023 website in a new window or copy this link: https://xatonline.in/
  • Click on 'candidate response'
  • Log in with user ID and password
  • Click on candidate response to generate answer key and question paper
  • XAT answer key will be displayed

Information Mentioned on XAT Response Sheet and Answer Key

XAT 2023 answer key cum response sheet will contain the following information:

  • Candidate's exam details like name and ID
  • Section wise questions and their answer
  • Candidate's response to each question
  • Questions not attempted

XAT Marking Scheme

Total marks of XAT exam is 100. Check the below table to understand XAT marking scheme:

XAT question paper is of 100 marks and candidates will be marked per correct attempt. Let’s take a look at the XAT marking scheme to understand this:

  • Total number of questions is 100
  • Total marks of XAT exam is 100
  • For every correct attempt, one mark is awarded
  • For every incorrect answer, 0.25 marks are deducted
  • After eight consecutive unattempted questions, 0.10 marks are deducted for every unattempted question 
  • There is no negative marking in General Knowledge section
  • General Knowledge section is not taken into consideration for percentile calculation
  • The Essay Writing question will also not be evaluated for calculation of raw score and percentile (XAT score)

Based on the above marking scheme, if a candidate attempts about 85 questions out of 100, out of which he solves 75 questions correctly and 10 questions incorrectly, then his overall XAT score will be 75 - (1-0.25x10) = 82.5.

How to Calculate XAT Percentile?

The formula to calculate XAT percentile is:

Number of candidates-Rank of a candidate/Number of candidates x100. Check the example below:Suppose, 100,000 people appeared for XAT exam and A got the highest raw score. It means 99,999 candidates have scored less than A. Then XAT percentile of candidate A will be 99,999/100,000x100= 99.9.

Final XAT Answer Key 2023

Once all the objections have been received by the exam authority, it will evaluate each one of them. If any of the objection raised by the candidates is found to be valid, the XAT 2023 answer key will be revised and published again as the final answer key. Exam result will be prepared on the basis of the XAT 2023 final answer key and no objection will be accepted against it.
