ACCENTURE PAPER ON 23rd FEBRUARY AT KOLKATA
Hi friends......I am Misbahuddin Shamim,pursuing my B-tech from Techno India
College Of Technology....and my stream is Information Technology.....I was
not having internet connection at my home...then a friend of mine made me
realised how important it is for the campussing...u must be wondering why
have i started with this??/ coz i know friends that most of you are reading
this paper froma cyber cafe...so my very 1st request to you all is that if
its possible for you to afford internet connection..then get it done as soon
as possible , as it really helped me a lot and it will help u too...it was
only due to freshersworld dat i was able to understand the pattern,the
important chapters as well as the questions which i have to attempt
initially in the aptitude test...it is really v.v.v.v.v.helpful....I m
really very much thankful to FRESHERS WORLD..
Naw let me tell you important things to be prepared for accenture:
It has 4 rounds:
1) APTITUDE TEST ALONG WITH THAT ESSAY WRITING.
2) GROUP DISCUSSION.
3) TECHNICAL / HR INTERVIEW.
4) HR / TECHNICAL INTERVEW.
Questions = 55 ; time limit = 60 minutes...along with that an essay to write
in the same sheet in another 10 minutes...
No sectional cut off , no negative marking..
questions were easy..all u need to do is planning which questions to attempt
first and which one to attempt at last...and yeah 1 more thing ..you have to
be very fast and u can achieve dat only through regular practice..all u have
to do is to solve few chapters from R.S.AGGARWAL ( verbal & Non-verbal as
well as quantitaive)..i will suggest you some chapters ...you jus do those
chapters properly and it will be more than sufficient for you...
The Aptitude test paper is divided into 3 sections:
1st section :consist of 20 questions which is completely based on english...
Questions 1 - 10 : These are very easy..its completly based on prepositions
and fill in the blanks with correct articles...if u have a gud command in
english then do it in the begining else do it some time later on after
solving some easier questions which will mention later on...
Questions 11 - 20 :
questions 11 - 15 contains one comprehension followed by another
comprehension from ques 16 - 20... I will suggest you all to do the
comprehensions at last.. and attempt the first comprehension before than the
second one...coz according to my experience first comprehensions are always
easier than the second one...
TIPS : DO THE COMPREHENSIONS AT LAST AND ALWAYS READ THE QUESTIONS FIRST AND
THEN LOOK FOR THE ANSWERS IN THE PASSAGE...NEVER WASTE YOUR TIME IN READING
THE WHOLE PASSAGE..
2nd section : consists of 20 questions which is based on quantitative as
well as verbal and non-verbal...
It contains questions from data sufficiency,venn diagram,time and
work,percentage,time and distance,directions,blood relations,and the most
important topic LOGIC (syllogism) which is the first chapter of the second
part of R.S.AGGARWAL (verbal & non-verbal)...prepare these chapters very
3rd section : consists of 15 questions which is v.v.v.easy, only a difficult
portion can be of puzzle types..
questions are like :
Q.41- Q.45 Mark the answers according to the following:
A- If all the three options match

Q.46-Q.49 were based on the Puzzle-type question. It said:
Following was the criteria decided by the selection committee of Indian
1) Player's age should be 18-28 years
2) He must be the captain of any cricket team for at least 2 years
3) He must be a Ranji Player for at least 2 years

year in Ranji
If 1st condition is not fulfilled .. referred to chairman
If 2nd condition is not fulfilled .. he must be an all rounder with at least
500 runs and 15 wickets
If 4th condition is not fulfilled .. referred to VP
Questions were like following example:

He won man of the tournament last year for taking 24 wickets last year. He
a) Selected b) Rejected c) Referred to Chairman d)Data Insufficient
(These questions are also easy if you draw a table with names of the
aspirant in rows and criteria in the columns, and then checking whether
he/she fulfils it or not)
Q.50- Q.55 were also a bit easy and were of two types:
Example of type 1:
If * means +, + means -, - means / and / means *, then what is the value of-
Example of type 2:
If * means /, / means -, - means + and + means *, then which of the
following is true:
a) 7+43*2/13-7+8 = 22.6 b) 4-9*7/4*2/3-7+2 = 25 .. ..
(The type 1 are easier and less time consuming and type 2 are more time
consuming but still can be solved. 3 of the questions were of type1 and
other 3 of type two)..
NOTE: Friends i will suggest you all to start with this section...first do
the question 41 - 45 and then do the questions from 50 - 52...and then do
whatever u like....coz these questions are v.v.v.v.easy..and so u will gain
lots of confidence after solving these 8 questions..if u can then solve the
ques 53 - 55 also else leave it for later on as it is very much time
IMPORTANT CHAPTERS TO BE DONE FOR THE APTITUDE TEST:
FOR ACCENTURE EMPHASIZE MORE ON VERBAL & VON-VERBAL RATHER THAN QUANTITAVE...
VERBAL AND NON-VERBAL :
1) LOGIC (syllogism).
2) DATA SUFFICIENCY.
3) LOGIACL VENN DIAGRAM.
4) DIRECTION SENSE TEST.
5) BLOOD RELATIONS.
6) PUZZLE TEST.
1) TIME AND WORK.
2) TIME AND DISTANCE.
3) RATIO AND PROPORTION.
5) PROBLEMS ON TRAINS.
6) BOATS AND STREAMS.
7) PIPES AND CISTERNS.
8) PROFIT AND LOSS.
Do only these chapters which i have mentioned ....its more than
sufficient...and yaeh once again emphasize more on verbal and non-verbal
rather than quantitative...coz 70% are from verb&non-verb and 30% are from
quanti....in comparision to these two...
After the completion of 60 minutes we were asked to write an essay in 10
minutes time and word limit was atleast 100 words and the topic was "US
recession and its impact in the IT industry"....dont bother about the essay
much, just make it sure that u have to fill that page with correct
grammatical statements...it does not play an role in clearing ur
aptitude...it is checked by the HR usually during ur HR interview and it may
happen that no one bother to check it also...
2) GROUP DISCUSSION :
The topic which was given to us was "liberalisation"... time limit was 10
minutes...12 students were there in a group, a topic was thrown and you all
have to share your views regarding that given topic...they selected only 5
students from each group of 12...so you can see that you have to give ur
best effort and you wont get much chance to speak also coz it so happens
sometimes that they make the GD go by person to person clockwise..
TIPS : Initially they may ask you to introduce urself...and u have to hit in
this very moment only ..ur introduction shud be very strong...then u will 2
- 3 chances to speak on the topic.....friends u have to be louder and clear
during your GD...with full of passions...
3) HR INTERVIEW :
Questions were like: Tell me sumthing about yourself which is not there in
the CV...then what do u do in your leisure time...then how can you prove
that you have managerial skills...and then few questions were asked which
was related to my answers...i m not writng all those things coz answers vary
from person to person...all i wanna say is dat u need to be very much
confident during your interview,there should be smile on your face,eyes
contact with the HR is a must...
4) TECHNICAL INTERVIEW :
First of all HR asked me to introduce myself...then he asked me what do u do
in your leisure time..then he asked me what are your favourite
subjects...then he gave me a program and asked me 2 answer hm whether this
program will run or not...then he told me dat i m giving u 16 seconds..u
have to sell urself...then he gav me some situation reaction test which i
In situation reaction test they just want to see how good you are as a
leader as well as a team member and how hard working , determined and
confident you are...
FINALLY, I WANT TO TELL U THE STATISTICS....899 STUDENTS APPEARED.....266
CLEARED THE APTITUDE...115 CLEARED THE GD....AND AT LAST ONLY 41 WERE
SHORTLISTED AFTER THE TECHNICAL AND HR INTERVIEW....AND I M REALLY GLAD TO
SAY THAT I AM AMONG ONE OF THEM...................FRIENDS!!!! ONE THING I
WOULD LIKE TO SAY REGARDING THE PLACEMENT OF ACCENTURE....... THAT " YOU
HAVE TO BE CONSISTENTLY CONSISTENT ".......WISH U AL DA VERY BEST AND HOPE
TO SEE YOU AT ACCENTURE...
