Wat I felt with this test was it was better to go thro all the 100 ques, cos
some easy ones were there at the last. If U think U can certainly solve a
problem but its time consuming just leave it and proceed to the next one.
Some of the ques were very easy, even U no need to use pen and paper.
Verbal
Find the Wrongly Spelt word
Synonym
Antonym
Fill in the blanks
Aptitude (purely mathematical)
 Better have a look at the previous 1998 qn paper, from that we got many
questions.
 strong analytical geometric and mensurational skills needed.
Computer Awareness
 Simply like find odd man out and 10 qns regarding 2 pseudocodes given
Time Constraint was the big thing, u cannot complete the paper if u solve
all the qns, its not needed also, they're just seeing the relative mark, in
our college from 150 , 29 were shortlisted for GD and from it 12 were
shortlisted for Interview, i missed out in GD.
Topics were War on Iraq, Leaders Born or Made
Try to assess ur group in GD, if u think its of to be an debating group, pls
don't follow GD rules, and create ur oppurtunities for speaking as raising
ur tone, intervening the conversation going on, 'its pretty sure that u'll
be going off the GD rules, but it was the case in our group", i followed GD
rules and i missed it out.
