XLRI’s XAT 2023 Registrations Up by 25%, Crosses 98,000 Applicants

13th December, 2022

XAT, one of the largest national MBA entrance tests held by XLRI, has seen a sharp increase of 25% in its 2023 registration numbers. XAT 2023 exam registration number has gone up to 98,242 applicants this year. Dr Vishwa Ballabh, Convener of XAT and XLRI Jamshedpur Admission Chair, said, “This year there has been unprecedented registration for XAT 2023 - which is around 98242 and the increase is 25% from last year.”

Following an 11% increase in CAT 2022 registration number, this strong growth in XAT 2023 numbers is good news for management education that has seen almost no growth in CAT and XAT registrations for the last 10 years.

A major reason for this growth in XAT numbers is the growth in Non-Engineer Applicants, which has grown enormously.

XAT 2023 registration process closed on December 11 after getting an extension from November 30. XLRI is conducting XAT 2023 on Sunday, January 8, 2023 as a computer based test in a single session of 3 Hours 10 Minutes duration across the country.
