XIM University General Information for Applicants

The XIM Research Aptitude Test (X-RAT) assesses writing proficiency, verbal ability and comprehension, reasoning, and numeric aptitude—skills that are thought to be fundamental to researchers. Regarding the test, do remember the following guidelines. Should the exam be administered in person, you should arrive at the testing facility half an hour early to allow yourself time to study the written instructions before the start of the examination. To avoid wasting time due to technical difficulties, please prepare your system in advance if the test is administered online. If the test is administered online, applicants will get further instructions in a separate email.

  1. You should bring a scale (or a paper knife to cut open the seal in the exam booklet) and some pens. Books, notebooks, calculators, electronic devices, and cell phones are not permitted. Use a pen that contains either black or blue ink. You will not be able to leave the room until the test is completed.
  2. The test booklet has four sealed portions (A, B, C, and D). Section A has 45 minutes, Section B has 40 minutes, Section C has 45 minutes, and Section D has 50 minutes (total time: 180 minutes).
  3. You will primarily be evaluated on your writing, linguistic abilities and understanding, reasoning, and numeric skills. All of your answers should be in professional English. Section A is the writing ability section, in which you must write about the topic provided as instructed. Section B will measure your linguistic ability and comprehension. Section C will evaluate your thinking, while Section D will evaluate your quantitative abilities.
  4. During the test, please feel free to leave any criticism (regarding the test, individual questions, flaws in the booklet, etc.) on the feedback form provided at the end. You should not write your name, ID, or any other identification in the test booklet, except on the front page, where it is designated.
  5. When the invigilator announces the start time, use your scale (or paper knife) to rip open the seal for Section A and begin answering questions. 
  6. There will be no negative markings. Each question is self-explanatory. No more clarification should be requested from the invigilator. Rough work is permitted in all areas, either in the margins or on the back side of the paper. Such rough work will not be considered for review.
  7. All responses must be written in the space provided. No additional paper will be provided. As a result, you should arrange your responses appropriately. If you require extra room while answering Sections A and B, you may write on the other side of the paper. 
  8. Some of the questions will require replies within a specific word count range. This aids in determining your capacity to write a response of the anticipated size. As a result, answers that fall outside of the stated range will be viewed negatively. You must include the actual word count after your response to such queries and verify it falls within the range specified.
  9. If you finish answering a portion before time, use your remaining time to revise your answers in that section. You are not permitted to move forward until the invigilator declares the time to proceed to the next segment. You cannot return to the previous section(s) at any moment.
  10. You should exit the room silently when the invigilator has collected all of the exam booklets and admit cards.
