Coal India MT Exam Pattern Sample Papers Books
Coal India recruitment for management trainees (MT) is round the corner – recently it published notification for 339 MT for the recruitment session 2014. Have you gone through it? If not, you can find it in my detailed blog post: Coal India MT Recruitment 2014. Once you make up your mind on joining Coal India as a management trainee, the next question that comes to your mind is how do you prepare for Coal India exam? Where to find those online sample/previous years paper and which books to study?

This is the subject matter of this blog article – trying to help you prepare for the written exam by pointing you to the sources of sample papers for Coal India exam as well as listing the books you can refer to.

But first, let us to do that by knowing what is the pattern of Coal India exam.

Coal India MT Exam Pattern:
Coal India, in its recruitment notification has not said much about the pattern of written exam except following:

There are going to be two Objective type papers: Paper-1 is an Aptitude paper, covering General Awareness & Aptitude. Paper-2 is a Technical paper, specific to your discipline. Both contain 100 questions of 100 marks and these 200 questions are to be answered in 3 hours.

Coal India has also specified the cut-off marks – the minimum qualifying marks for each category of applicant. You can find the same along with the distribution of marks paper-wise in following table:
Pattern of Coal India exam
Securing above qualifying mark does not mean that you are going to get the call letter for Coal India interview – you have to be among the top 3858 candidate in the written merit list. Why? Because there are 1286 management trainee vacancies and 3 times the vacancies would be short listed category-wise for the Coal India interview.

Is there negative marking in Coal India MT Exam? The notification does not says anything about it – you can find it only exactly in exam hall. But most of recruitment exams have negative marking – minus 1/4th mark for a wrong answer.

PSU exam pattern
This exam pattern is very similar to the pattern of exams by other blue-chip PSUs like NTPC & BHEL, as you can see in the comparative study of the exam pattern of these three organisations - each of them has two test sections - General Aptitude & Technical. Why this information is important? Because you can appear in any PSU exam by preparing for any of the exams. For instance, you can use the sample papers & books of SAIL MT exam to prepare for  Coal India MT exam.

Sample/Previous years papers of Coal India MT Exam:
Although Coal India has been conducting the recruitment exams for Coal India for a very long time, Coal India previous years exam papers available on the net are scarce. I could find the following two sample papers from which you can get some idea about questions being asked:

You can find 50 General Awareness question for the Paper-1.

Other than above sample papers I could not find any good paper for Coal India exam. If you spot any and want to help future examinees, you can post the link below as a comment. However, I find the following sample papers of SAIL MT exam would be useful to you:

SAIL paper 10 Feb, 2008 – It gives you exam experiences along with some sample questions.

SAIL paper on 3rd April, 2008 - It gives you exam experiences along with some sample questions.

Books for Coal India MT Exam:
I could find not find any book published exclusively for Coal India MT exam. However, since the exam pattern and standard of questions are similar for public sector recruitment exams, you can use the following books for engineering disciplines of Coal India MT Exam.
