What is eLitmus all about?

eLitmus is an innovative step towards streamlining entry-level recruitments. elitmus philosophy is to evaluate candidates across India and to provide a standard benchmark against which companies can compare them.



 What is pH test?

 pH test is a common aptitude test conducted all over India every month to evaluate fresher/entry level graduates on a standard benchmark. This score is used by all elitmus clients(companies) to shortlist candidates.



What is academic criterion for taking the pH test?

elitmus do not have any academic percentage cutoff for taking the pH test. You need to be either a graduate, final year or pre-final year student.



How long will my pH score be valid?


The pH score and percentile will be valid for a period of 2 years from the date of the test.



 How can I prepare for the pH test?

Go to www.elitmus.com/ph_test for test details.
You can refer any standard MBA entrance exam material/aptitude material while preparing.




 Can I take more than one pH test?
Yes, you can take up multiple pH tests. But every time you take, you have to pay the test fee. In case of multiple tests, typically your best performance will be considered while shortlisting.




How do I pay pH test fee? and How much?
The test fees is Rs. 699
There are three ways you can use to pay the test fee:
(1) Online -> If you have a credit card or online banking facility, you can pay the test fee online.
(2) Demand Draft ->You could send a demand draft drawn in favor of "eLitmus Evaluation Private Limited" and payable at Bangalore. You need to mention your Name and Registration Id on the backside of the DD.
(3) By Cash-> elitmus accept cash only in their Bangalore office. Candidates need to get their pH test registration id.





What is a percentile? How is it different from percent ?
Lot of candidates confuse percentile to percent. They are vastly different and a brief explanation is below.Let us assume, Ram has scored 80th percentile in pH test. It means 80% of pH test takers have scored less than him and 20% people more than him. Say there are 100000 test takers in an year. So 20% of candidates that is 20,000 in all are above Ram
 


 What is the cutoff percentile to get interview calls?
Companies typically shortlist students for interview calls on basis of the skill sets required for the job profile.
For every job, eLitmus’ AI engine assigns a rank to each student based on preferences and job profile set by the companies. So it is possible that you might be ranked higher than your friend in company “A” but in company “B” your friend is ranked higher despite having a lower score.
This could be because Company A is engaged in R&D and hence gives higher weightage to individuals who have solved questions related to following skills – out of box thinking, algorithmic thinking, simplification, relational thinking, encapsulation and abstraction. Company B might be engaged in providing software services work or QA work. And hence will give higher weightage to individuals who have solved questions related to following skills – methodical approach, eye for detail, perseverance, patience etc. 





How would companies contact me if I am short-listed?
Your status will be updated under the "Interviews" section in your elitmus account whenever a company shortlists/rejects/offers you. 




I am getting no calls from any company. Why is that?
eLitmus uses an artificial intelligent (AI) engine which uses extremely complex algorithms. The objective is to ensure candidates find jobs by being rejected in minimum number of places and that companies find talent which actually performs on the job.
The success of the AI engine can be gauged from the fact that for every 3 candidates who attend selection process of a company through eLitmus, one gets offered.

Apart from these, some companies might have additional preference on basis of Geography and Academic credentials (for example: candidates from a particular state or candidates with above 65% throughout or candidates from certain colleges etc)

eLitmus does not guarantee jobs. A good pH score can get you interview calls, beyond that it entirely depends on how you perform in the Interviews/technical rounds.
