110 students sat for the aptitude test out of which 20 where
sortlisted and finally 10 were selected.i was one of them
after getting rejected in Infosys and Accenture.
The recruitment process consists of the following rounds:
1) Aptitude test (General + Technical)
2) Technical Interview
3) HR Interview
The duration of the test is approximately 110 min. It was an
online test . There were a total of 95 questions to attempt.
There is 60% sectional cut-off for both sections.that is
what i heard but i dont think that they follow it strictly
as i wont hv got 60%.it depends on the performance of ur
every right ans has +1mark and wrong ans has -0.25 marks.so
be careful if u dont know leave the question.
test paper has many sets.
The aptitude test comprises mainly of two sections:
1) General Aptitude Test-contains 3 subsection
2) Technical Test-contains 3 subsection
General Aptitude test
The general aptitude test consisted of the following
1) quantitative ability 20 ques(25 min)-toughest part of the
test as time is very less.questions were not so easy.i was
able to do only 11 ques.trick(when u press submit time stops
and ask for confirmation if u press cancel u will be brought
back to question page)try this at ur own risk as they might
rectify this fault.
3 ques on set theory(venn diagram) not so easy prepare set
theory thourougly from R.S Agarwal.
2 ques on clock-damn easy took 1 min to get the ans.
next 5 ques was very easy.-no prep required
5 ques were like $ represents 1 and 0 represents * then 4 is
represented as $**.some common airthmetic were given u hv to
calculate result and just have to convert the no in
i forgot other ques but they where not so easy u hv to
prepare R.S Aggarwal thouroughly.
2)comprehension(15 min)-damn easy.my passage was on
connecting computer.i even dont hv to read the passage as i
know 8 ans out of 10.it took me 7 min in total to find
remaining 2 ans and crosscheck my ans with the passage.
3)15 easy questions(15 min) on substitution ques like + is
*,* is -etc,pattern matching,reasoning.it will take no more
than 12 min.
The technical test includes three sub-sections:
- SQL (15 min)
- UNIX (15 min)
- Language (15 min) (Here you can choose between C, C++ or
I chose C for the language test.
1)C ques were very easy if u know even a little bit of c u
will be able to do 15-16 ques. 20ques(25 min)-ample time.
b=a++ + ++a;
b)what is the function used to read n write a specified no
of line from file?
2)SQL sec(15 ques,15 min)-very tough only one who is very
comfortable with SQL can answer.
ex-what is truncate?some tables were given output is given u
have to select a query that generates that o/p.
two three ques i even didnt understand
u hv to go through IVAN BAYROSS to clear this sec
3)unix sec(15 min)
he UNIX section comprised of 15 questions mostly on unix
Some of the questions were as follows:
1) Which command would you use to change the priority of a
a) nice b) ps c) top d) ls
Ans: a) nice
2) Which command is used to display the output of a command
as well as store it in a file ?
a) cat b) grep c) tee d) top
Ans: c) tee
3)which command is used to go to end of line in vi editor?
a)a b)A c)e d)E
4)what is the extension of main memory in hard disk is
like this easy ques where there on unix.if u r bit familiar
with unix u can clear it but u hv to remember commands with
i use to work on linux so i cleared this section with ease.
My technical interview is of about 60 minutes .it seems to
be long but when u r inside u never feel it and u just hv to
ans patiently as ques are very easy n bit tricky. A good
knowledge of SQL and C is a must. U must know at least the
basics command of unix otherwise u will be rejected.they
will just ask u to write 10 commands of unix and they will
ask ques on those 10 commands only.
Well my first question was are u very tired?
Ur fav subject-i told OS n C.
Then they asked me abt semaphore,write code for it ,explain
give a practical ex where u will implement semaphore?done
with this easily
Then they asked deadlock-i answered
Relation between semaphore n deadlock. i was not able to ans
properly.they were not satisfied with my ans this time.
ask me abt projects if i hv done any.i said i hv made a
small site on asp.then they asked its functionality,ADO
databse connection etc of which i answered half of questions
an int datatype of 1 byte.
what is o/p.
I answered wrong.o/p will be an infinite loop,he helped me
to ans this.its given in kanetkar find out how.
Then they got into sql(my weak part and they recognise
it).asked ordering of groupby,having,orderby in a query ?how
they are executed in memory and then i was not able to ans
any ques on this.
Then they asked views,how they are updated n bla bla.i was
lucky as i know views properly i answered max question this
then they come to unix.they asked me ever hv u used a
platform similar to unix.as i work on fedora 8 it was my
asked me to write 10 commands.easily done.
Asked some questions on
answered all of them easily,they were little impressed for
the first time.satisfied with my unix knowledge again move
this time very simple ques.what is pointer,hw u allocate
memory to them etc.
then they asked me are u doing any project for be?.
i said yes told them abt my project as i hv already decided
the project,it is related to networking.
They asked me abt router,bridge,http packet,how packet got
transfers frm one pc to another?
I answered all this very efficiently as i hv some idea abt
Finally they said do u have any ques to ask? i asked what
should i do to improve myself technically?
They said go through as many courses as u can n improve ur
database knowledge specially queries,rest is fine.
3) HR interview
Dont take it as time pass as it is equally important.be
prepared with general hr questions.then only u can get
ques were very general like why amdocs,tell me abt
urself,weakness,strength,family background,relocation etc.
it was for around 20 min
It seems to be very long and drilling process but if u are
confident and keep urself fresh its easy to clear all round.
Best of luck to all of u.....
