going through the newspapers regularly should suffice. no. of questions varies from year to year but expect at least 20 questions in this section. there is a good mix of all kinds of questions ranging from general gk to current affairs. keep a track of company brand ambassadors, mergers & acquisitions etc.

"70 in VA, 80 in ardm, 90 in qa" + essay.
lost all respect for XLRI today. absolutely decided on gmat now. I have seen enuf of this circus. btw, it may be just that they have collated all the data that have been given to them since this morning about the sectionals and overall percentiles of people who have not got calls and they have then ENGINEERED these cutoffs around them.
moreover, the people who have satisfied even these ridiculous numbers and have not got calls, they will say "sorry bad essay". why do I get the feeling they haven't even read the essays ? I thought prometric was the champion in screwing with peoples lives and careers but it seems XLRI admission office is hell bent in achieving EXCELLENCE in this field as well and won't concede to IIMs and PROMETRIC. well done.
kanishka, rahul..excellent job guys. u have shown that u are fit for MBA. I sincerely hope that ur effort is rewarded and XL takes notice of the discrepancies.
ps: just saw the email. excellent
