Company Name: Tech Mahindra
Interview Location: Kolkata
Interview Date: 23rd & 24th August 2015
Tech Mahindra has mainly 4 rounds:
Written test (Online).
Coming to the written test. It mainly includes 3 sections i.e., verbal, reasoning, quantitative aptitude. But these 3 are sub divided into 11 sections.
Verbal topics: - (100 bits, max spend 20 mins) :
Direct and indirect speech.
Active passive voice.
Synonyms and antonyms.
Subject verb agreement.
Guys, please concentrate on verbal as it consists of 100 bits. And the cutoff for verbal is roughly around 60-70. We can score max of our marks in verbal only. Go with prepositions, articles, tenses, direct, active, subject verb first. Because they are easy. Won't take more than 15 mins. Lastly go with comprehension. They are not difficult but takes time. Be fast while reading at the same time understand the reading comprehension. That's it guys, if you are speed and accurate you can complete it in 20 mins. If you feel you are crossing 20 mins then you will be at a danger zone. Then go for reasoning.
Reasoning: - (50-55 bits, max spend 40 mins) :
Problems on alphabets.
Reasoning bits are easy but we need to do a lot of practice. So that in the exam only by seeing the question itself we will be able to apply the logic immediately. Figure analysis may take time. So manage it. Lastly quantitative aptitude.
Quantitative aptitude: - (15-20 bits, max spend 15-10 mins):
Simple and compound interest.
Profit and loss.
Speed time distance.
Time and work
Please don't go for quant section first. Though we can do aptitude sometimes it may take time and also very less bits are given so weight age is low for quant. So it will be better if you attempt it at the last. Study the basic formula and methods. Reasoning and quants consists of total 70 bits and the cut off is 35-45. We will have 170 bits and only 80 mins. But don't worry guys this time is more than enough for us. Because the questions will be that easy. Trust me. I was left out with 10 minutes in my exam. Remember guys you and the person sitting beside you will not get the same paper. So avoid things like copying. Fortunately we don't have negative marking and hence answer all the questions.
HR / Technical Interview (TI):
You need to survive this round with confidence and smartness. The interviewer asked me to introduce myself and also say something about my favourite subject. Then onwards he asked me questions on C, C++, Java, DBMS and what not! I answered most of them correctly.
Me: May I come in sir.
Interviewer: Yes, Please.
Me: Good afternoon Sir.
Interviewer: Very good Afternoon Mam. Please take your seat.
Interviewer: Tell me about yourself?
Interviewer: Tell me about your project? (I am from CSE)
Me: Explained well.
Interviewer: Write a program of Prime, differences between C and C++, OOPS Concepts
Me: Explained all of them quite well.
It was very easy round for me because he asked only the basics.
