Tech Mahindra Interview
Hi friends, my name is
Raghvendra Singh Sengar.
I am from U.I.T. - R.G.P.V. Bhopal doing my B.E. in Information technology.
TM was the second company for
which I appeared and was selected. Thanks to god.
I will share whole my experience with you all.
TM came open for all colleges,
and for nearly 4500 students. Out of which approximately 2500 appeared for the
written on-line test, and finally 274 were selected.
The pattern of the paper was
quite different from the others. There were 5 sections. 3 were of English and 2
were of Quant + L.R. There was sectional cut-off for English and Quant. There
were no negative markings.
The paper was quiet simple but
a little bit lengthy.
After the results were declared, we had to report to my college which was 20 Km
away from the college were the written test was held.
I reached my college by 7:00 pm
