MBT latest exam Pattern. Held in May 2004

The selection process at MBT would entail the steps mentioned below:

1. Aptitude Test will consist of (Analytical, Logical & Arithmetical Reasoning, Flowcharts, Passage Reading). The

duration of the test is 60 minutes. Use of electronic device or calculator is not permitted.

2. Technical Interview will consist of questions on following skills:-

OS/Unix ; C,C++; Data Structure; Algorithms; Database Management System; & Networking

3. HR Interview. Only Aptitude Test cleared candidates will be called for a Technical and HR interview

The test pattern is as follows:

The test consists of sections (don’t remember exact number but is around 6) each of which

has time limits. Most of the sections have time limit of 10 min and some of 5 min.

Total time 55 min.

You are supposed to attempt the sections in the time allotted. When the time expires you must move to next section. Each right answer +1 each wrong answer -1 For the sections and sample paper refer What I felt is that you cannot solve all the questions in the time limit, what is needed is that you find the questions you know well and attempt them in each section. You should scan the questions quickly, say in 1-2 min and then you will know which questions you should attempt. Try not to guess answers.

There will be a section on reading a passage (5 min) and then attempting

Questions (5 min). Read the passage carefully as you will not be allowed to get back to the passage later.

4. How to prepare:

Verbal and non-Verbal reasoning by R.S.Agrawal.

Don’t skip its Analytical (Verbal) (the part containing boxes and figures...)

5. I gave the test in Pune on 21st morning batch and was intimated by phone,

I then called back MBT to conform it.

6. Interview calls are on 11th and 15th of July. Best of luck to all who are giving the exam this month.
