Based on interactions with 1000s of our students we have come up with a table which would help you understand the approximate score and percentile that they would score.
Section Number of correct answers for 75-80 %ile Number of correct answers for 90-95%ile English Ability 9-10 13-15 Quantitative Ability 11-12 14-15 Logical Reasoning 6-7 9-10
This analysis is not completely accurate. It just gives you an approximate number of questions vs the percentile scored. This analysis is done based on the scores we received for
This is the most difficult choice you need to make. You need to carefully select domain-specific modules based on your stream. This will help you get call letters from companies related to that field.
We have listed down the recommended modules based on companies eligibility criteria. For example, if you are a civil engineering graduate and you have attempted Electronics and Semiconductor Engineering module. In that case, companies based on electronics & semiconductors mostly look for ECE, EEE, E&I and related branches. So we suggest you choose modules based on our list and it will make your job hunt easier.
