There is no restriction on when you need to take the eLitmus pH Test.
Based on the feedback received from students and empirical findings we recommend one of the following two approaches:
Take it in the 7th semester before any company visits your campus or during the summer vacations after the 6th Semester. This is a good starting point to judge your readiness, and to significantly boost your chances of cracking your dream campus job (as you are better prepared). In addition it gives you enough time to improve the score if need be.
If you want to take the pH Test through your college, we will recommend that you ask your college to hold it in the 6th semester so that in case you are found wanting , you can work on your areas of weakness in the summer break after your 6th semester.
Taking the pH test early would ensure that you make the most of all the opportunities that come through eLitmus. Timing your test to a particular company’s section date is a bad idea. This is because most of the companies share their intent to recruit one or two weeks in advance only. At that point of time you may not have a pH Test scheduled at your location or you may end up scoring less marks with no scope to improve your score with another attempt. Also remember that it could take up to 18 working days from your test date to declare your score.
