XLRI Re-Valuates all the XAT answer books Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI), declared fresh results on Monday after re-checking above 92,000 Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT) answer sheets. XAT is a prestigious entrance test, the score of which is accepted as qualifying to admissions for 92 other management schools apart from XLRI. In general none of the management entrance exams have the facility of applying for a revaluation. XAT was held on January 6, 2013 and its results were declared just about 10 days before on 17 January.

The revaluation exercise was carried out for XLRI two complaints from students who claimed there had been a technical error and their Quantitative Techniques (QT) scores were erroneous.

It was admitted by Vishwa Ballabh, admission chairperson that there was a technical error in the computer program which resulted into the wrong results. “If there is an error, we cannot be choosy and change the result of only those who had complained. We decided to have a relook at all the results as the emphasis of an exam must be on correctness and fairness,” he said while providing reasons to go for re-check of all the 92,000 answer books.

The institute’s director and board agreed, and the fresh results were issued. The revised scores and percentile of all candidates were updated on the XLRI website by Monday evening. While it is difficult to give a range of how much the students’ score had slid, the minimum cut-off placed by XLRI for the QT section is down from 90% to 76.2%.

However, It seems the problem of unexpectedly low marks (after cross-checking with keys) was not faced by all the test takers, but about 10% of the candidates. But it altered the rankings and percentile scores of almost everyone.
