The pattern was

SECTION-1 [ matrix test] 15 question 13 min.[ No negative marks for this section]
SECTION-2 [ Number series test] 20 question 4 min. 15 mins mathematical[Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.]

SECTION-3[Analytical type(Apti)]12 question 15 min.[ Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.]


This is the new pattern of IBM. this new pattern has been implemented. it contains 3 sections.

SECTION 1, some information is given in the form of matrices, with headings for rows as row1,row2 . Etc.For columns with headings as column1,column 2. Etc.those matrices r as follows.

Column1 column2 column3 column4

Row1 @ * 2 Z

Row2 S K ? $

Row3 I P Z +

Row4 # 8 F Q

Questions r as follows ( not same questions but same type)

1.if column1 , Column 4 r interchanged and row3 , row4 r interchanged and diagonal elements from top left to bottom right r written in reverse order then what is the element in row1 and column 1?

2.if Zs in odd numbered rows r replced with 7s and Ss in odd numbered columns r replaced with 5s then which column elements sum equals to 9?

3.After giving similar type of conditions , what is the element left to H?

In this section they gave around 4 matrices of this type and gave some questions for each matrix.

Total No. of Questions r 15. these r multiple choice questions.5 answers were given for each question. No negative marks for this section. Time Limit is 13 minutes.


All questions in this section r from number series. Total number of questions r 20.time limit is 4 minutes.these r also multiple choice questions( 5 options).Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.

2. NUMBER SERIES (20 qs -4 mins-20 marks- negative 1/4)
simple but v shud b very quick....time is very very very imp 4this section frnds dont get confused really very simple section
and 1more thing is the invigilaor signals time 4 every 30 secs dont feel tensewth tht just go wth ur work..

EX: 17,18,19,34,35,19,20,___
EX: 22,21,34,33,45,____
EX: 40,41,41,42,42,42,44,44,____


Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section. Analytical type Questions . this secton is little bit tough.u must have practice to do this section. questions 12.time 15 minutes. Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.

Detail about IBM Voice/Communication test u will be given cell phone and u have to dial the server no. the details regarding this will be communicated to u at the time of test.once u connected to the server there will be five round to check ur Voice/communication.

1st round - "Read the sentences"
u'll be given a paper which contain 10-12 sentences in english.
u'll be asked to read the sentences like "Read the sentence no 6..."
there will be 8-9 sentences to read. (easiest round)

2nd round - "Repeat the sentences"
The server will say some sentences and u have to repeat them.
The senetences will be in different voices, speed, accent (easy one)

3rd round - "Make senetence from Jumble words"
The server will pronounce some jumbled words and u have to make senetence from that U can't add ur own words/articals/adjectives and all to make the sentences. u have to use only the senetences pronounced by the server. ( it would be a normal used sentences like - "eat i daily mango" ) (Most difficult among all)

4th round - "one word answer"
The server will ask question which u have to reply in one word.
Like... what is the color of milk?
5th Round - "Answer in detail"
The server will ask discriptive question like "What will u do if become the primeminister"

the whole process will take 10-12 min. The accent will be of US, UK, Australia. The problem people face is understanding the sentences. The questions are very easy to answer but u have to catch what the server is saying.
