There will be three steps in the counselling process that XLRI offers:

Step 1: Applying for XAT 2025 Counselling

The following are the procedures to be taken to register for XAT 2025 counselling:

• Using the XAT application form, students can pay for the program they want to pursue on XLRI campuses. For other affiliated institutes that accept XAT scores, candidates must register on that official website.
• Candidates for XIMB, IMT, and other positions must apply separately.
• Those from other countries who want to apply to XLRI must use GATE.
• The candidate is required to pay the fees for the courses they have chosen after successfully registering.
• The internet gateway (VISA/MasterCard – Credit & Debit Cards, Net Banking) is required for candidates to pay the cost.

Step 2: Choosing a XAT Counselling Program

Regarding XLRI, students have the option to choose the program when submitting their XAT application. Each program requires an INR 300 payment from them.

• Candidates who meet the requirements to appear in the XAT 2024 exam will be chosen using a standardized selection process that XLRI Jamshedpur has devised. A number of factors, including the student’s XAT score, performance in the essay writing and general knowledge portions, GDPI rounds, prior academic achievement, and job experience, will be taken into consideration when evaluating their performance.
• The following section discusses the elements of selection and the relative weights assigned to each:

Components Weights

Step 3: Complete Seat Distribution

• Following the procedures, several criteria, including the GDPI rounds, the essay writing and general knowledge part, prior academic achievement, and job experience, will be used to assess the candidates’ performance.
• After all of these phases are over, candidates can proceed with paying the admission cost.
