Having said that, let us know what the pattern of FCI MT exam is.
FCI MT Exam Pattern:
You might have gone through the FCI recruitment notification and found that the selection process for FCI MT position consists of a written test, followed by GD and than the Interview.
As you must have found out already, not much has been said in the notification about the pattern of Management Trainee recruitment exam except following:
The written test for MT (General/Depot/Movement) consists of 90 General Aptitude questions from following test sections: Reasoning, Data Analysis, Computer Awareness, General Awareness/Current Affairs and Management.
On the other hand, the written test for MT (Accounts) consists of 90 questions on General Accounting and Finance.
You have to secure minimum 50% (for SC/ST 45%) in the written test, which is the minimum cut-off mark set by FCI for short listing the candidate. Also approximately 3030 candidates are expected to be selected from the written test for GD/Interview as FCI is going to call five times the vacancy (i.e. 5 x 606) for GD/Interview.
