Exam Pattern of ELitmus in 2021

Pretty much sure, you must have heard about Amazon, Cisco Systems, Dell, Ericsson, Siemens, Bajaj Electricals, Schneider, and Mu Sigma. All these are hiring students from the scorecard of ELitmus. You may wonder if you could be the one who gets a chance in any of them. For that, you should know the exam pattern of ELitmus which the 2021 students of CS/IT/ECE will follow for their selection. This reason is much obvious – ELitmus changes its syllabus in a span of 2 or three months. This means after every two or three months, there will be a change in the topics and weightage of questions asked in the tests.

The pattern is like this: –

  • Total Sections [Three] And at every section, you will see 20 questions. Each question is going to have a weightage of 10 marks. So, 20 × 3 sections = 60 questions [which are multiple-choice and non-adaptive]. It implies 60×10 [weightage marks of each question] Equals 600 Marks.
  • In the first section, these questions will be from the Quantitative Aptitude like Number Systems, Probability, Permutation, and Combination.
  • The second section will test how good you are at the English Language. The questions will be completing the not completed sentences, comprehensions, Para jumbles.
  • The third or the last section will be the LR – Logical Reasoning. The questions are of Series, Puzzles, Blood Relations, Crypt arithmetic[This is the sub-part of LR and the number of questions will be varying from 4 to 5. If you solve them on time, then the ELitmus percentile will increase around 40%].

Negative Marking – Yes, it will be there. Now, Negative marking will start after 25% of the attempted questions have turned out to be wrong. For instance, if 16 are attempted wrong, then the total number of wrong answers which will be allowed is 4. If your wrong questions are less than 4, then there you won’t bear the consequences of negative marking. But, if 10 were wrong, then 6 out-of-those will attract a negative mark of 50% each. 

And every section will independently be treated for -ve marking.
