What score is good for eLitmus ?

You won’t get a 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 consume 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.
