Here I am sharing some experience with u, because I got too much hepl from this site.
1> Aptitude Test
2> Essay Writing
3> Technical as well as H.R Interview.
Time management is important, If there is sectional cut-off, please take judgement of lower cutoff, I did same thing, I did not attempt all question but I had attempted only selected question, because there was negative marking, don't waste your time in attempting extra question, when u think u have answered enough question to clear that section, immediately jump to another question, then if u get time then come back for that section, I kept my mind cool I got enough to clear test but the people who tried for maximum questions or selected random answers they failed to make it. so do with cool mind"
100 Questions in 75 minutes and then 15 minutes of Essay. First they said there is negative marking of '-1', but after some time they reduced the criteria they said negative marking of -0.5, but they had kept sectional cutt off.
