TechMahindra(MBT) Placement Paper Candidate Experiences GCET, Greater Noida-13 Feb 2011
1. Online Test(Aptitude and English)
2. Technical Round
3. HR Round
Aptitude => 40 min 70 questions.. with +1/-1 marking. There were 3 sections and the questions were of medium and high difficulty level...there were questions from all spheres: time n distance, hcf lcm, ratio, surds, age, upstream downstream, compound interest, logical reasoning, picture matching etc... I suggest u to attempt only the confident ones and not to attempt doubtful questions. Also try ur best not to peek on the countdown timer, it might just saturate ur mind.. I tried my best, but cud finish with only 59/70 question attempts
English => 40min 100 questions.. The english was very very easy infact... i bet u can finish all 100 in less than 20min.. there were 7 sections.. each were pretty easy.. prepositions, articles, synonyms, antonyms etc..
the online test stretched from 2:00pm to 3:40pm. The results were announced @ around 4:15pm... Out of 162 aspirants, 71 were selected for the technical round
TECHNICAL ROUND : this was the toughest round as they were testing all ur abilities... I suggest u to thoroughly prepare one fav subject... and go thru urs basics well.. the technical panel were throwing in all types of question, including 11th and 12th class physics and chemistry questions. U may even be asked to solve a puzzle! Approx 10-15min per individual was the interview time
I suggest u to reply confidently. if ur not sure about the answer, b frank and tell the truth... try not to press the panic button and make sure the interview goes on like a conversation, rather than a cruel viva session.
As of my case, since I'm from Electrical n electronics background, the first question thrown at me was why I'm opting for an IT telecom company... then I was asked abt the projects and abt any hands on technical experience. I was also asked to comment on android, software testing, software maintenance etc to which I replied i had to knowledge. it was a friendly conversation and the interviewer was telling me abt the importance of working in a team, problems that I may face in IT sector, difficulties in software testing etc... and I kept on smiling and saying that I'm ready to face the challenge.
The technical round stretched from 4:30pm to 10pm. 45 out of 71 were shortlisted for the final round: the HR.
final results were declared at around 1am.. and 31 candidates were finally selected(including me!!!)
