ESSAR PAPER ON 14th AUGUST
Hi friend.....This is just to give a brief idea about ESSAR
STEEL selection procedure.....
WRITTEN : There is no negative marking (All are objective
Aptitude : Time:80min
Total 120 Qs, 40-reasoning, 40-Arithmatic, 40-English,
In this section cut-off is 27 only and you have to get 9 in
each section i.e there is a sectional cut-off.
Be careful about sectional cut-off. Don't concentrate on any
one section more...Try to get 9 marks first in each section
.Out of these three sections arithmetic is quite easy,
reasoning and English are little bit time consuming. At last
try to fill all questions. Don't leave any question.......
Preparation : Quantitative aptittude,Verbal and non-verbal
reasoning by R.S.AGARWAL are enough.
Technical( for EEE) : Time:30min, 50 questions(for all).Cut-off
is 23.It is also quite easy.... In technical they will ask
only basic questions.....No indepth questions.
At the time of our test, they haven't covered all the
subjects....They concentrated more on dc motors, dc
generators only. And some questions on batteries and on
power systems etc......
Some questions are like this.....
1. Given voltage and power ratings of three bulbs and asked
to find which bulb has large resistance?
2. In batteries after completion of charging which colour
gas is emitted from it?
3. In dc generators brush lead is given to which side(i.e
towards rotor direction or in opposite direction) to avoid
4. Given an application and asked which type of dc motor is
5. One question from dc machine windings.......
6. Basic questions from transformers......(1 or 2) etc....
Note: Don't go for test by studying dc machines only.....you
may suffer...But concentrate more on dc machines(out of 50
they gave upto 30 questions).....You will qualify in written
easily......Try to score maximum in technical paper.It will
add value to you throughout the selection procedure.
This may or may not be there(depending on the number of
selected candidates in written ).It is just for
formality......Ur performance in GD plays less role and ur
percentage and written performance plays more role to get
through GD.But try to perform better.......Topics are very
common topics. You can clear it easily....
TECHNICAL INTERVIEW: On the next day....
It is the toughest round. They will test you in depth. Most

4. why each rotor slot is partitioned into small strips?
unable to understand the question....But tried to answer
it(about laminations and Cu losses
etc...) He does not satisfied......
5. In ac machines can we get any speed range?ans: we will
have some limitations because of losses etc..explained
6. Draw the characteristics of Zener diode and explain it's
7. Tell me about IGBT?Some how explained but not

He is very friendly....He invited me with a cherishing face.
