Accenture Job Placement
ACCENTURE PAPER 23rd MAY 2008
Hi friends, ACCENTURE visited our college on 23rd May 2008, it was my b'day.
Lets not waste time.....
There were FOUR rounds in all:
1) Written test:
The written test was conducted by MERITRACK, so go through their papers.
Many questions were repeated. It had THREE sections and consisted of 55
questions in all. The written test was damn easy. The 3 sections were:
SECTION 1-> VERBAL:: There were 20 questions in this section.5 questions on
reading comprehension, 5 on sentence completion, 5 synonyms and 5 anatonyms...The
questions were simple and no need of going through any GRE books for this
SECTION 2-> APTITUDE:: 20 questions. I believe R.S.Aggarwal is more than
enough for this section. Questions were asked ratio and proportion,
percentage, profit and loss, sequence completion, venn diagrams, and
questions like:* means +, / means *, + means - and - means /;Then what's the
value of 2/9*1+10-8
SECTION 3-> LOGICAL REASONING:: There were 15 questions in this section.
This section also was simple, questions were blindly picked from
R.S.Aggarwal. There was no negative marking.
Around 625 candidates attended the written test and 255 were short listed.
2) Group Discussion:
There were 12 members in our group. The topic given to us was:
Should Hockey still be the national game of
6 of us were short listed.
Some of the topics given to other groups were:
-GD is a waste of time.
-Usage of IT.
-Effect of cinema on youth. etc...
Totally, around 130 of us were short listed for the next round.
After this round, we were given a form to fill. Fill the form clearly, coz
based on the details u fill, the questions will be posed
in the interviews. Remember, people having year gaps have very less chances
to be selected. They almost selected none who had year gaps.
3) Technical Interview:
The interviewer was a very cool guy. Mainly he asked me about my project. So
be thorough with your project. They may go deep into your project. Be ready
with your project. They need a clear cut description about your project.
Database used, type of connection used, problems faced while developing the
project and connections and so on....
He didn't ask me much technical questions. Some of the questions were:
Explain Binary search, normalization, paging, swapping and a few small
Right after my technical round, I was taken for the HR round, people who
didn't get through technical round were told
on the spot.
4) HR interview:
The lady who took my HR interview was not so friendly. Some of the questions
she asked me were:
-Tell me about yourself.
-Are you happy to be short listed to the final round? (I said of course I
am, and today's my b'day and this is
the first interview of my life, so this added to my happiness. She wished me
for my b'day).
-Why did you score less marks in your 12th standard?
-Asked me why wasn't I selected in the first 3 companies that visited our
college. (I told that I wasn't eligible to
attend any of those three interviews).
-Do you have any year gap in your academics?
-Achievements, strengths, weakness.
-Willingness to work in any region in India. bla bla bla.........
I finished my HR round at around 4.30pm. I was asked to wait until 6pm for
my results. The interviews went on until 11.30 at night.
We had to wait until 12 at night for our results. Finally the results were
announced at 12. And yepp, I was one of the 75 selected students. So,
totally 75 (out of 625 who attended) were selected.
Remember- The only mantra for getting through in any campus interview is:
I wish all you guys reading this blog:= ALL THE VERY BEST!!!!!
