  XAT Xavier Aptitude Test (difficulty level is almost same as that of CAT) Gives percentile.
Apart from aptitude test, which has difficult QA and a section on decision making, at the end they have an essay-writing test.
XLRI- Xavier’s Labour Research Institute- (as good as any top IIM) . Best in Asia for HR. Fill only HR and BM programmes. GM course requires work experience and FPM, as mentioned for CAT, is for those who wish to pursue Doctoral studies.
XIM-B, Bhubaneshwar- (as good as IMI)
Accepts CAT/XAT/GMAT. Good college

The flagship course at XAT, and at almost all MBA colleges, is the 2-year general MBA. At XIMB, it's called BM. Apart from this, it has MBA in Human Resource called HRM. Those interested in MBA in HR should fill this. XIMB also offers MBA in Rural Management, however, it should be applied for only if you are really interested in working in and for villages and bringing about a change there. Do not look at it as a regular MBA degree that could be taken as an alternative to a normal MBA.

Also, XAT allows you to apply through multiple channels- CAT/XAT/GMAT. If you are confident of your CAT performance, apply through it. But if you would like to cover the possibility of an unpleasant CAT percentile and increase your chances of a call from XIMB, you may apply via both CAT and XAT. Applying via GMAT would make sense only if you intend to take GMAT anyway. No point in taking GMAT just to be able to apply to XIMB via GMAT.

GIM, Goa institute of management (as good as KJ Somaya)
BIM,Trichi- It is fickle- May take CAT or XAT
GIFT-not good
No other good college in XAT

  No educational Institution in India, unless run by a minority as defined in the constitution of India, can provide reservation on the basis of religion. And the combined reservation in any educational institute, as per a ruling of the Supreme Court of India, cannot be more than 50 %. Hence this information is definitely untrue. Do fill XAT.

In case the information does turn out to be true, do contemplate converting to Christianity. Amen!
