What score is good for eLitmus ?

You won’t get score in eLitmus, but percentile. An overall percentile above 80 is considered to be good. If you score above 80 percentile, then you can expect to get interview calls from good companies.

We suggest you to firstly go with the Verbal ability section, as this section doesn’t consumes much time. One more thing that you need to keep in mind is that there will be negative marking in eLitmus. So your best bet is not to attempt questions that you don’t know.

So all the best for your exam. Do let us know if you wish to know anything else about eLitmus paper.

How is the overall percentile calculated, assuming the % in each section is 60,60,60?

1. #### Gandhali Kedar Thakar

Have a look at the rough idea of the sectional percentile;
Quantitative Aptitude:

0 marks — 40 percentile
Up-to 10 Marks(1 correct question) — 50+ percentile
Up-to 20 Marks(2 correct question) — 60+ percentile
Up-to 30 Marks(3 correct question) — 75+ percentile
30+ marks — 80-85+ percentile

Reasoning:
Up-to 20 Marks(2 correct question) — 40+ percentile
Up-to 30 Marks(3 correct question) — 50+ percentile
Up-to 40 Marks(4 correct question) — 65+ percentile
Up-to 50 Marks(5 correct question) — 80+ percentile
50+ Marks — 85+ percentile

Verbal:
Up-to 20 Marks(2 correct question) — 20+ percentile
Up-to 60 Marks(6 correct question) — 60+ percentile
Up-to 90 Marks(9 correct question) — 85+ percentile
Up-to 100 marks — 90+ percentile
120+ marks — 96+ percentile

The Overall Percentile can be calculated as below:

Quant 50 + Reasoning 85 + Verbal 95 == 90+ overall percentile
Quant 30 + Reasoning 70 + Verbal 95 == 80+ overall percentile
Quant 80 + Reasoning 80 + Verbal 90 == 95+ overall percentile
Quant 60 + Reasoning 80 + Verbal 90 == 85+ overall percentile
(P.S. The weightage of Quantitative Section is higher than that of Verbal)

1. #### Gandhali Kedar Thakar

Dear Deepak,
The eLitmus test is completely performance based. Companies give a call based on your performance. If you manage to perform well, definitely your chances of getting a call shall increase.

Hi i am 2013 passout.I want to write elitmus exam.Even getting good score in elitmus will the companies call us? as i am 2013 passout.If yes please share how to prepare well for exam.

1. #### Gandhali Kedar Thakar

Dear Sailaja,
There is no particular score at which one can be sure to get calls from all companies.Companies rank their students on the basis of their preferences & job profile. So it might turn out that you are ranked at a higher position in a certain company where as your rank drops in another one inspite of same score. eg. If a company is involved in R & D it shall lay more focus to out of box thinking, algorithmic thinking, simplification, relational thinking, encapsulation and abstraction. Where as if a company is engaged in providing software services, then it lays stress on questions related to following skills – methodical approach, eye for detail, perseverance, patience etc. Apart from that some companies might have additional preference on basis of Geography and Academic credentials. Also look out for How to score 90+ Percentile in eLitmus? and Books for eLitmus preparations
Good Luck 🙂
