TECH MAHINDRA PAPER ON 4th NOVEMBER KOLKATA

HI, friendz.I'm Amitava from Kolkata.It was an Off Campus drive for 2006 freshers batch. The aptitude was not so tough, but the buzzword was 'TIME'...they will give u very little time to do these.u will be given one hour, and u need to answer 70 questions. There was no negative marking and sectional cutoff. They announced it prior to the test.So when ur time is almost exhausted, guessworks will come handy. There were five sections.

Section 1: It was fill in the blanks without any options.it was simple.Just fill in with prepositions,tenses etc.

Section 2
: There were 'choose the most appropriate word'.some small 3-4 line paragraphs will be given and u will be asked some easy questions on them. SEC 1 & 2 should be attempted first.It is scoring and one can do these 20 ques in maximum 15 mins.Score definite 20 here and keep much time for other sections.

Section 3
: Comprehension.A paragraph in easy english is given.This should be attempted last. Sec 3 & 4 consists ( 20 + 20 =40 )ques.So these section is the decider.Try to solve quickly so u can attempt as much as possible before guesswork.

Section 4: Logical & Analytical Reasoning!! Solve R.S.Agarwal thoroughly.All those series completion, odd man out, figures, missing no,venn diagram,small puzzles etc etc given.

Section 5
: Quantitative and Data Sufficiency.Solve R.S.Agarwal quantitative.Knowledge of solving Time & work,profit & Loss,average, age problems,percentage,Train ,Speed, Volume,Area etc will come handy.

They set a high cutoff.Only 29 cleared apti including myself from about 100.

Then in the same day we faced 3 interviews.

Then after half an hour of anxiety, one person came and called me for HR.This time it wasnt a panel.Only one middle aged gentleman.He asked me typical HR related questions such as why TM,why should we hire u,
strength,weaknesses,hobbies,semester marks,future plans.He seemed to be very intersted about philately i.e stamp collecting which i told as one of my hobbies.Asked about how many stamps I have,of which nations, catalogues,rare stamps, & blah blah.Then asked to wait in the same room again.
