The XAT 2020 exam saw several important changes. These were:

  • The total duration of the paper was reduced from 3 ½ hours to 3 hours.
  • There was no sectional time limit but the candidates could move to Part II of the paper only after attempting the first part.
  • The most notable addition was the introduction of negative marking for unattempted questions. A candidate could leave 8 questions unattempted without fearing the negative marking of 0.10 marks. This might have impacted the attempt of all candidates as there was 0.25 negative marking for each wrong response.
