HCL PAPER ON 29th JUNE AT CHENNAI
Hi friends….This is Dinesh here …I m from (Computer science) ….I got placed
in HCL yesterday (Yahooo!!!!!)
Before I tell about all the procedure 1 thing I would like to say to u all
that placement is 90% luck and 10% preparation…..and confidence is the key
of ur luck…..b4 HCL I appeared in cts and wipro…but my luck did’nt click
out….but here in hcl it was my day…
In my collage they came up with a new procedure…..First we had a online
exam(don’t worry thay ll give u proper instructions ) which was aptitude
test cum technical interview…..out of around 700 students 163 cleared the
test and were directly called for hr interview….where totally 61 were
In the test there was a first question paper (50 min 60 question) containing
aptitude, English , general computing knowledge, DI …..etc. ….the level of
questions was average
Some of the questions which I remember are----
“a person who loves his country is called”-------ans=patriotic
Question releted to blood relation, age, number series, mirror image, coding
decoading , grammer correction, meaning of word, work time, in DI bar chart
I think a score of 35 out of 60 would be more than sufficient. There was no
negative marking….i marked all the questions in the end….
The second question paper was divided in three ways
1 paper for cse guys……1 for it guys……and third one 4 remaining branches……for
other branches (other than cse it) the second paper did’nt contribute to get
into hr round…..other branch students had only 10 questions of c in their
For me as being a cse student in the tech test there were 3 portions….
10 ques of C++, 10 ques of data structure, 5 ques of C….
I found it a bit tough…
Some of the questions that I remember are…
A is friend class of B so A can access …….
A node in link list has……Ans was…..data field and address of next node….
One program was written and we were suppose to recognize whether it was pre
order traversal of post order traversal…..
One question related to pointers
In which of the following data structure we may gat a error message “array
overflow” even the array is not full……the ans is …circular q ( I think
2 question related to graph…..
While preparation concentrate on concepts…
Next day I had my hr interview…..b4 hr interview there was ppt( listen
properly). I was asked general hr questions. .they just check whether u can
open ur mouth or no…and ur level of confidence……it lasted for 7-8 mins…..he
was convinced with my answers…..
One of my frnd was asked…..if ur boss is cyco what will u do??? …..he
answered “I ll continue…..”
Hr said what’s the need to continue?????? so b ready for some absurd
questions also….they just read ur face expressions
so guys its all about my placement story……my advice for u is to be well
prepared , believe in urself, pray to god……
Best of luck…..
