tech mahindra paper on 1st april 2007
Hello this is Arindam Mitra. I am a 6th semester student now and I am doing my B.Tech in Electronics and Instrumentation Engg from BITM santiniketan.It was our first on campussing though our college had arranged for one or two pool campus.
Eligibility criteria was 60% throughout academics.
Around 11.45 a.m., they gave a ppt first, and then there was an online aptitude test. It had 5 sections, 3 on English & 1 on verbal & non-verbal each.
There were 75 questions to be answered in 60minutes.There were 5 parts in it.
a. Logical Reasoning verbal(20 questions)[Go through R.S. Agarwal Logical Reasoning]
b. Logical Reasoning Non-verbal(20 questions)[containing data sufficiency type questions, series completion etc]
c. English Vocabulary(15 questions)[synonyms, antonyms, phrase replacement etc]
d. English Verbs, Preposition, Punctuation etc (10 questions)
e. English Paragraph(10 questions)
No sectional cutoff is there.
No negative marking is there.
English part was very easy, so friends try to do it first.
But the biggest problem was that there were questions on quanti in the non-verbal n verbal part, so don’t get confused. As there were no negative marking answer all of them. Look for the most common answer in the part you have answered or for a sequence in the paper, and mark accordingly.
But most important is— U HAV TO PLAN & MANAGE TIME AS IT IS MOST CRUCIAL. Though they didn’t declare the cut-off officially, U HAV TO SCORE AROUND 50 to 60 to clear the apti.
Results were declared around 3.30 p.m. . . .Only 22 were selected of 94 students. Next were asked to fill a form and were waiting for the
Technical interviews. Common questions were::::
1. Introduce yourself.
2. What r ur current n last semester papers?
3. Tell me about diode.
4. Explain Capacitor with figure.
5. What gates do u know? Why they are called gates?NOT,NOT,EXNOR,FLIP-FLOP,Truth tables, combinational ckts….
6. Prepare C.V well, lots of questions from it.
7. Learn C and Data Structure as well as possible. CSE n IT students be careful about C++, DBMS, OS n any other subject given in CV.
COMMUNICATION IS VERY MUCH IMPORTANT ALL THE WAY, BE CONFIDENT ABOUT UR ANSWERS, BE POSITIVE MINDED, HARD WORKING N STAY COOL.
Interview was easy; just they would try to confuse you. Take anything they give you, keep a smile on your face whatever the say, how badly they say. If they ask you whether you have a problem if they send you outside India or West Bengal say a big NO. Can tell about your wish for higher studies,
I was called for HR interview at around 6-30 p.m. HR was the easiest for me.
Questions were normal like:::
Tell me about yourself? Questions from hobbies and extra-curricular activities. Why Tech-Mahindra? Why an It sector? Why should TM take you? Strength and Weakness?
Very easy just don’t get tensed and don’t stammer.
COMMUNICATION PLUS CONFIDENCE is needed. Be smart but not over smart or u will be punished! Stay cool; don’t be aggressive during HR at any cost. There is no preference like as if they only take CSE or IT, they take all if you have a clear funda and if u have a good approach. That’s it!!!!!
At last Results were announced at 7-7.30 p.m. and I was selected among the 12 from my college. It was a superb experience only if you crack the final goal. Still keep up the spirit and apart from that, u need 100% LUCK ON UR SIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Believe in GOD & in your potential, I m sure u can make the difference.
Wish u best of luck,
