75 questions in 50 Minutes this itself should give you the clue that the questions are going to be easy and it is going to be the game of speed. Since there is no negative marking your strategy should be to attend 50 questions spread across all the sections within 45 minutes with at least 80% accuracy. The remaining 5 minutes can be used to just attempt the left out questions from all the sections.

If you clear the 1st Round then there is more than 70% chance of getting the Job offer. Hence practice the updated tests from PlacementSeason and increase your chances of clearing Tech Mahindra’s placement test.
