Recently I gave a written Test To Cognizant. I will tell u My experience
with Cognizant. the selection process consisits of two Rounds.
1. Apps( verbsl,maths,reasoning questions...etc) Meritrac Conducted the
first round. around 5000 Took up the Test. 1200 got short listed for the
Everybody used to think Once if we clear first round in CTS we r 90%
through. i was also thinkind like that. But here my bad time starts. My
interview was scheduled at 3.30 pm on next day but mrng itself i went. due
to the lack of time my interview got postponed. If it had happend at the
scheduled time I would have gone through becoz Tech and HR was separate.But
next day they Combined that. Don think when they combine it is easy. when
they combined the process you will not be asked HR questions. The lesser the
HR questions the Lesser the Chence to get through.

After two days I got the Result.
I was not able to clear the Interview. But one thing I am sure, if u have
lesser HR questions it means u will not be selected 75%.
I was having one arrear in my first semester but cleared in 2 nd semester.
Even though I was having 85% I was not able to explain them taht i have
cleared it on my next semester becoz there were no HR questions.
