2. Picture Perception/Story Writing
After completing the Written Test, if a candidate’s score for all the separate sections is well above the cut-off, then as soon as you finish your test you will get a screen displaying your result and whether you cleared the round or not.
If you clear this round, you will be taken to the next part of Test i.e the Story Writing Test.
In this Round, you will be presented with a picture alone – without any text or context. Then, in a time duration of 15 Minutes, you are supposed to write a story based on the picture in not more than 200 words. This is an elimination round meaning if you clear this, you will be called for the Tech Mahindra Interview Process. While processing your storyline, always make sure the events are positive in nature because a negative perception can show the pessimistic nature of your thoughts. Moreover, make the story realistic and avoid complex or supernatural elements. Try to include points such as what led to the current situation, what is the present situation and what your character does to overcome the problem (if any).

The Tech Mahindra Written Round has no sectional time limit but it does have a sectional cut-off i.e the scores for all the sections are calculated separately and those students who clear the cut-off in all the sections are shortlisted for the next round. i.e story writing followed by face to face Interview.
