    Hello friends, let me take this opportunity to share my Tech Mahindra experience with u.. The overall selection procedure stretched 15 tedious hours from 9 in the morning to 1 at night! 31 out of 162 were finally selected. The selection is made on the basis of 3 rounds:

    1. Online Test(Aptitude and English)

    2. Technical Round

    3. HR Round

    The ONLINE TEST consisted of:

    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. 

    If u thot that clearing Technical Round was enough to clear the HR round,,, u r wrong... the HR was as challenging as the other 2 rounds...We were called in group of 6, and were asked to give self introduction, to talk on various current topics, group discussions, and were even asked to cross question each other.. Fluency, presentation and confidence was thoroughly tested.. around 15-20min per batch was the time taken... the HR round finished at 12:30am...

    final results were declared at around 1am.. and 31 candidates were finally selected(including me!!!)
