2006 AT DELHI
Hi folks the paper was a mix of toughness, time constraint
and easy questions.
To summarize it, it contained of two main sections:
1.The Aptitude section
2.The Technical section
People told me that there is sectional cut off of 60% in
each of the two sections:
Now talking about the sub sections of the paper:
The Aptitude part consisted of 4 subsections.
The Technical part also consisted of 4 subsections.
Now ellaborating the paper, first it is a long brain and
computer adaptation exercise, of nearly four hours.
Ist Section: 18Qs in Logical Reasoning and Data
Interpretation questions in 30 mins.
This is a easy section u can easily do it, there is enough
amount of time.
IInd Section: 16Qs in Quantitative Ability in 25 minutes,
again a simple section
IIIrd Section: 25 Qs. in 20 minutes it is about pattern
IVth Section: 60 Qs. in 6 minutes, there is negative
marking, here u get a question which has some text and u
have to select the same text among the 4 options.
speed is tested here in this fourth section, but a person
can attempt about 30 to 40 questions depending on his/her
NOTE: All the above sections are explained with good
examples before u start the test so be cool and patient and

before u start off this section it is advisable to read the
booklet that is given along with this section before

basically a section of algorithm.
IInd Section:This section tests u on SQL queries, some are

And in case there is only sectional cut offs then it is
advisable to try to score the fullest or maximum in the
first section(Amdocs pseudo language)
Mind u, u can take time off between sub sections of the main
sections also so relax in between as well to keep ur
In all the test is very long, it will take near to 4 hours
to complete the full test, only advice is not to rush
through the sections quicly as only once u click on the
button next will the section start, so take some time off
between sections get refreshed and then concentrate with
full vigour in the sections.
All the best.....Amit Ganguli.
