The XAT 2015 results may have been declared a few days earlier than schedule but they have not brought glad tidings to all. This is the first year that XLRI disclosed the official answer key and ironically, that seems to be the bone of contention.
According to candidates who spoke to PaGaLGuY, some of the answer keys are just not ‘right.’ “We wrote many XLRI officials on the given email id as we were asked to send queries by January 16. (PaGaLGuY has a copy of some of these mails.)
But no response came and the next thing we know is that the results are declared,” said one candidate.
So far, some 200 XAT candidates claim they have been wronged.
What irritated them even more was that XLRI, instead of responding to their queries, published the results with a small explanation saying : ” Students have been deploying pressure tactics on us which will not be encouraged. We are the best institute of HR in Asia Pacific and we know how to deal with a mob like this efficiently.”
The protesting candidates would like XAT authorities to come out with the official key so that they can verify their scores. “People are facing problems in VA and DM sections. If XAT authorities feel that they is no need for reevaluation and they are correct, nothing should stop them from making the official key available at their website,” added another aggrieved XLRI aspirant.
PaGaLGuY has only just sent a mail to XLRI seeking answers. Once the answers come in, this article will be updated.
It may be recalled that in 2013, a similar outcry was heard and XLRI re-evaluated all the results. Last year, however the institute stood its ground and refused a re-evaluation since it had taken utmost precautions during the evaluation process.
