CTS PAPER ON 3rd JULY AT CHENNAI
This is Sowmya Kameswaran from Sri Venkateswara College Of Engineering,
We had our CTS placement on campus on the 3rd and 4th July 07...totally
arould 420 wrote the aptitude and the 60 department toppers were allowed
directly (10 each dept) for the interview. 307 were short listed for the
interview... and of the 307+60, 220 were chosen...
The paper pattern was jus the usual 3 sections ANALYTICAL, VERBAL, NON
VERBAL. Just be careful when u answer the questions cuz they are quite
jumbled....like in our Verbal paper finding the correct and incorrect
statements were not given under one heading..
So read the question properly and do not waste time looking up.... Time is
really precious when u take up the test... just carry on even if the roof
comes down!! just like the others i would also say please do not take up the
passage first.. it would eat up all ur time. m really sorry i dont properly
remember the questions that appeared but trust me the English was a lil
tough so try n take some good help for that! probably reading the news paper
daily would help.
I just remember the cube question it was like... the 2 middle cubes along
each diagonal is taken out from all the sides. Now the cube is painted
black.... how many were 1 side painted 2 sides more than 2 0 side painted.
RS Agarwal Verbal Non Verbal will do a great deal of help... and when if
comes to syllogism just remember this short tip in case u have the
statements like No A is B No B is C or Some A is B Some B is C or Some A is
C Some R is T in these cases NO CONCLUSION HOLDS OK.
Now let me come to the interview part tere were totally 40 HRs who had come
that day...of which panels 32-38 was for the toppers who went without the
aptitude. People prepare technical and go at least a lil and in case u have
kept oa have an arrear in any sub just glance thro that specially cuz a few
of my friends had a lil bit of a tough time and those people who interview u
are really brainy and they know when u lie... So please be careful... DO NOT
Some tips from my side for facing the HR
1.please be dressed formally and wear a big smile ....
2.Confidence is the key to facing the interview..just think u have a friend
sitting in front of u..
3.do not use slangs like "my dad, mom, pop, sis, bro..dunno.." all these are
not to be used even by the slip of the tongue..
4.wish the person who is sitting there before entering and do not take the
seat until he or she tells u to do so"
5.sometimes u might be the one who is having a stress interview. U will not
be knowing that anyway but do not show the stress on ur face... Keep ur
cool... they are just trying to check if u can work under preassure...
handle it with a smile.. even if u dont know the answer for something just
tell I DONT KNOW.... dont try to blabber in the name of trying if u do not
know anythin relevant to the question..
6.and when u are having a stress interview the questions will be the ones
which u cannot answer... Just relax..they are jus testing you... If u keep
ur cool ur into the company
7.when u say somethin is ur area of interest perpare for it really good and
be prepared for the other subjects that u have read till now cuz "TELL ME
THE SUBJECTS THAT U LIKE APART FROM THE ONES WHICH U PUT HERE", is one of
the favorite questions....
8.and when u are given a sum or puzzle or a digital sum with truth table for
implementation.... first search the question for the answer... there will
always be a clue... and never give up even if u do not know how to proceed
with the sum just try.. after sometime they might offer help.. it will
create a wrong impression if u say something negative in case of sums..
9.and the most important thing that most people fail to do is to MAINTAIN
EYE CONTACT. only one who is not confident of oneself cant maintain eye
10.In case they ask u some thing about the interview just do not tell I DID
NOT HAVE TIME... it means that u do not know to manage time...just tell them
that the test was easy...nothing beyond that... i hope these tips help u!!
Take care all the best C YA AT CTS
