TECH MAHINDRA PAPER ON 5th APRIL
Hi guys, I’m Suprabhat 4rm KGEC. Tech Mahindra came to our college on 5th April for on campussing. Eligibility criteria were 60% throughout academics. This time the company is offering a package of 2.9lakh/annum.
The selection procedure is as follows:
Aptitude Test:
The test duration was 1 hr, consisted of 75 Qs, 5 sections. It was an online test. No sectional cut-off, no sectional time limit, no negative marking. But cut off was very high. You have to plan & manage time as it is most crucial.
1st part - Verbal (20 questions)
2nd part - Non-verbal (20 questions)
3rd part - English grammar (Fill in the blanks) (10 questions)
4th part - English antonyms & synonyms (15 questions)
5th part - English reading comprehension (10 questions)
The English sections were easy. You have to be perfect in grammar. Verbal section was very easy. But non-verbal section was a little bit tough. Max problems with diagrams. Until & unless you practice this type of ques, it would be very difficult to solve those in exam hall.
There were ques like time series (12:30, 3:01, 5:32, ---), no. series etc. The most common & time consuming ques were like: A, B, C, D, E, F, G are 7 bottles. A is placed after D, F is between B & E etc. then find 3rd one 4rm the left.
Result was out within half an hour...17 out of 80(approx) were selected for the technical round…
Technical Interview:
In technical round I was asked from
Operating Systems (Multi-processing & multi-threading, Is Windows multi-processing or multi-threading?),
UNIX (Kernel, advantage of UNIX, Is there any kernel in Windows?),
C (Array, Recursive func, Prog of ‘String Reverse’, Return-type of ‘printf’ func(ans: int))
No ques asked 4rm Data structures & DBMS. But some of my frnds were asked from those. Go through all the basic fundamental things. Technical interview was really TECHNICAL for CSE & IT guys…
HR Interview:
In HR round I was asked ques like ‘Introduce yourself’, ‘Why choose Comp. Sc.?’. Then the HR personal gave me one puzzle to solve.
Tech Mahindra has a reputation of not rejecting much in the HR round.

My advice for Technical & HR: Be confident and say ‘No’ if you don’t know the ans, don’t try to bluff, be honest…Communication & Confidence is the main thing in any interview.
After half an hour result was out… 13 were selected… I was one of the lucky students.

TECH MAHINDRA PAPER ON 1st APRIL
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.

TECH MAHINDRA PAPER PATTERN ON 21st MARCH AT MUMBAI
Hi.. I am a Third Year E/T student of Terna Engg College,Nerul, New Mumbai... I got selected in Tech Mahindra on 21st March, 2007... Will have to say this,I had previous tried at Infosys, Accenture, Mastek, Hexaware, Maq... Couldnt clear any of the aptis!! So, those who arent clearing the aptiude tests , will just say, dont panic, be positive, your day will come!! Ya, because mine apti of Tech Mahindra was the worst of all...(Am still shocked by my selection!!!) But got thorough the apti and subsequent rounds...

Ours wasnt an Online apti... BTW, if there are not many comps in ur college dont expect an online apti!! The apti was of 1 hour , 75 Ques... The total eligible students in the college were around 130.... So, we were broken into 2 batches , One of Elex,IT, Comp and the other of E/T... There were five different sets of paper... You really have to be quick while solvin the apti.. i will suggest you adopt educational guesses right from the start... I felt, the Verbal section was very easy and it was presnt at the start in my set of paper... I'll advice to just finsh of the verbal ques as fast as u can also with good accuracy...Passage ques are very easy.. We werent provided a rough paper... So be ready to start rough work right at the back of the Answer paper... We didnt have negative markings... not sure about sectional cutoff...But they had informed before that no negative marking and no sectional... Just follow what is said...
Now about Quantitative part... It is virtually impossible to solve all the ques within the time given... So, here plz adopt educational guesses where and where its required... By that i dont mean just guess...In many sums you can start with d options... i mean start takin a option and see if it fits in. and go on like that... rather than solvin d conventional way... I think i put this to use in some ques like those series ones , word probs... Practise maths from the books like R.S Agrawal etc... Verbal, i dont think any preparation was required for the level of English that we were given... So, i would suggest see into maths..
Out of around 130 people , 36 were selected for the interviews....NO GD... There were 19 from Comps, IT, Elex .... and 17 from E/T.... First we were told to fill in the form... It had some ques like ur objectives, plans of further studies... So just think about it and write... We were said that there would be a TI and a PI... The list was formed in the order of marks in the aptitude test... i was 16th... Just squeezed in!! I will say for Tech Mahindra , Apti is the main filtering process....Those who have cleared the apti, can beleive they have put a foot into the door... Now, what remains is how confident you are.... By the time my turn of PI had come, i had got the news that some 3-4 have been rejected and all... For
HR i was asked-
1] Tell me abt ur self...Ans- Tell about what u r currently doin.. About somethings of the past...about your parents etc.. 2]Greatest strenghts..Ans- i said honesty,a decent human being,good communication skills etc.. whatever u say, be prepared to give atleast 1 example of your each strength... 3]Weaknesses ..Ans- I said , i trust all , speak frankly which makes some feel that i am blunt..(Here too do some homework for your answer...) 4]Why should i hire you?.. Ans-I think i am the best suitable person to join your organisation because of my background & education... 5]Where do you see yourself 5 yrs down d line??.. Ans- In 5 yrs , i'll be well experienced & my carrer path will go upwards... 6]Can you work anywhere?? Ans-Yes... 7]Books that you have read recently.. Tell about what u hv read.. dont ever lie.. HR can catch u immediately if u say a book name and that book the HR has read!!! 8]Why you want to come into I/T sector now.. (This is the main ques for non it people... So just be prepared for it..)I said that i wanted E/T initially because it covers a wide range of subjects...
Here also, i would suggest be prepared for some surprise topics... One of my frend was asked to speak about Osama Bin Laden, do u think America is doin right..?One was asked define 'Life'... So just dont get stunned and loose your confidence... Just be cool.. And just answer the ques as you are speaking with a frend or some elder relative... They just wanna see how confident you are and can you think instinctively.... This was about my 1st HR... Jut after 5 min , i got to know i had cleared as i was the second last in.. Then was a prospective TI...Out of 17 of E/T, 4 were not selected for second round.... So, now 13 remained... There were two, Tecnical persons... One was taking a Technical interview while the other was taking the Personal interview again! Actually here, its your luck.. One was sent for technical while other to personal int... I was lucky!! Got PI again for the second time!!! The ques were silmilar... Some diff though... This person was taking down whatever we were saying!! Just dont get baffled if such a thing happens... Just speak... He was checking if you get distracted or not... Just be confident... Say in a loud audible voice... About Technical , which some of my frends had to face, it was tough!! I mean, i can just say for E/T people... The HR would start right from Filter Theory to CC!!! So, just have some knowledge or see the subjects... At least some rough idea... Cant say about Technical in detail as i didnt have to face it... Then, the results were declared...All 13 of E/T were selected , from the ones who had made it to the 2nd round.... So no one went out due to technical...
In all 30 were selected from the college...Pay- 2.9 pa..At last I would thank this site for helping me get through TM... The experiences and papers did help immensely....I hope you enjoyed my experience and it will be helpful for you!!! :)
ALL THE BEST....SEE YOU AT TECH MAHINDRA...
