Elitmus Test Pattern and Sample questions

Now a days many companies are using Elitmus test to select candidates when campus hiring specially for computer science students. Its a traditional paper pencil type test.In this post we will explain in detail what this test is , how to prepare for elitmus and  sample questions from previous tests.This article is written by our reader Hari Prasad from Bits Pilani. Who recently gave elitmus test as part of RBS hiring process.

The level of the questions is almost comparable to CAT , it means they are tough . So A valuable piece of advice which we want to give you attempt and mark only those questions which you think are 100% correct.As there is negative marking and people doesn’t score much in this test. So each -ve mark can throw you to the end of the queue.Also there is no specified syllabus for the exam . But on a higher level  we can say the syllabus is same as syllabus of CAT.Also in this post we have specified important topics even if you practice questions on those you can score very good in this exam.

Elitmus syllabus and elitmus test pattern:

Score – Overall percentile as well as sectional percentile

In Question paper there will be 3 sections

• Section 1: Quant Section ( 20 Questions)
• Syllabus
• Number Systemwork and time

Probability
• you will get 14-16 questions from the above topic and 8-9 correct answers will fetch you to 90-96 percentile.
