1. MBT Pune .

2. It is a walk in so you don't have to send your resumes to anyone. But do

remember to take your resumes and photocopies of previous marksheets (They

asked for them the previous time), also mention the aggregate % in ur

resumes.

3. The test pattern is as follows:

The test consists of sections (dont remeber exact number but is around 6)

each of which have 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 alloted. When the time

expires you must move to next section.

Each right answer +1 each wrong ans -1.

For the sections and sample paper refer freshersworld.com

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.

DoNot 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.

Best of luck to all who are giving the exam this month.
