  • Logical round performance will matter most for Non-CS candidates.
  • CS/IT/IS stream candidates that do badly in the coding round will not go further despite stellar performance in other areas.
  • Typically, scores below 45/72 or 70/105 will not be considered for the next round

Extra Note:

  • If that growl/bark/bite condition made you smile, we're already great minds thinking alike
