Wondering how to get a job through eLitmus, and What is the best way to prepare what score is enough to get calls for different companies?

We will answer all the questions for you.

What is elitmus?

eLitmus is one of the biggest online hiring platforms which solves the problem for many BIG MNC’s by helping them not to spend a lot of money conducting Aptitude and Online tests.

eLitmus gives out score based upon the performance in their test which then is used by these companies to shortlist students for Interviews in Off Campus and On Campus Placements.

What Score or Percentile is good in eLitmus so that I can expect getting calls from different companies?

To be honest, you must atleast score 80% in all the sections for off campus hiring and 75% in on Campus hiring to get called by companies for Interviews.

Even if you score 99% in two sections but score less than 75% in any one. Generally it is seen that one doesn’t get calls or gets very few.

Thus you must score more than 80% in all the sections.

How many months is enough to prepare for eLitmus?

Atleast two months. I will say since 

  • The exam is very tough.
  • There is a lot of competition and it percentile based test

You can study from our eLitmus Dashboard. We have covered the entire syllabus section wise with test, previous eLitmus Questions, Questions for Practice, most repeated eLitmus Questions, Paper analysis, exam tips and analysis.

Basically, from a student’s perspective we have made the best eLitmus study resource material and you can blindly follow our website daily for 2 – 3 months and prepare from it.

What are the books that I should buy to Prepare for eLitmus?

There is no specific book for eLitmus. You should buy Arun Sharma books for Quants, Logical and Verbal and it is a must buy to do general eLitmus preparation.

But the book isn’t enough. eLitmus questions are repeated which you will only find on our website and secondly you must do very test focussed preparation which we have tried our best to make possible on our website.

Which are the companies that hire through eLitmus?

There are a lot to be honest. Companies like Accenture, Samsung, Maruti Suzuki, Dell, Amazon etc

eLitmus is definitely worth to give if you’re not having anyjob. But you must give proper dedication and time to be able to do so. No one can score good percentile in eLitmus with a week’s study. A month atleast should be given for preparation.

eLitmus pH test and eLitmus Placement Papers Negative Marking Rule

Now read this very carefully eLitmus used to have this negative marking rule of 25% earlier and some website still show that it exists in 2018. But, the 25% rule isn’t there anymore. We contacted eLitmus directly and they said it will not be there in future. 

New eLitmus Negative Marking Rule – Now there is – 10 negative marking for each question. Even if you do 1 question wrong you will get -10 for that. There is no negative marking for unattempted questions

Old eLitmus Negative Marking Rule – 

  • No negative marking if the total number of incorrect questions is less than or equal to 25% of the total number of eLitmus questions.
  • 5 marks will be deducted out of 10 marks for every wrong answer after 25% window.
  • No negative marks for unattempted eLitmus questions.

What is the hardest section in eLimtus

The hardest section in eLitmus is Problem Solving followed by Quants and English Verbal which is the easiest and thus 99 percentile is only when you score more than 99.

What is the score to percentile projection for eLitmus?

eLitmus Previous Papers prove that solving only a few questions with correct answers in Logical Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude section can help you get much better percentile.

Thus it is suggested to mark questions or solve questions you are very sure to know the answers of, to avoid negative marking and lose percentile.
