IBM PAPER ON 3rd AUGUST AT PUNE
I m goin to share my experience with u that i had during the selection
procedure of IBM. They came for d placement on 3rd august and started their
pre-placement talk at 9:00.After which we had our aptitude test.It had 3
Key to crack the apti is believe in the almighty plus Time management!!!
Leave the questions that r hard to solve...solve other questions and if time
allows,then go for them.Number series was really easy...just be quick wen u
solve them...leave the ones that r not comin.In mathematics there were 12
questions to be solved in very less time.here again u ve to manage time..out
of 12 i could solve around 6-7...but remember not to mark d questions which
u r not able to solve.there was negative marking
then after the aptitute test we were given 10 minutes to write an
essay...The topic was "INDIA's FIRST WOMEN PRESIDENT"....U shold write good
points in tat....They generally read that wen they call u for an
interview...I was not been asked bout the essay,i think they liked it..But
many of my friends were being asked from their essay's. The aptitude test
finished at 12 n the results were out by 12:30..They were really
quick...There were around 51 for the apti n wen the results were out my name
was there among the 41 students...Imediately it was followed by GD in groups
Let me tell u that U ve to speak something in GD no matter what ;)...Always
remember they r there to select you n not reject u....This not a GD for
elimination..they just want you to speak somethin...
In my case the topic of discussion was "CRIMINALS IN THE EYES OF LAW"
It will be good if u start with the discussion but if not then also no
problems...listen to all n then analyse n speak...the pannel was very
supporting as they were giving chance to everyone in the group.The topics r
very general from daily news so make sure to read the current news...Others
were given the topic "Money makes u reckless"
after Gd was over ,they announced the results n we all were in...infact all
people were in..no 1 was rejected...so u ve to speak n with confidence....
Then we were called for the personel interview....
they saw my resume..did not ask nethin bout it ..They asked me my favorite
subject...N asked questions based on that...friends remember to prepare
atleast 1 subject before u go for such interviews....U should brush up ur
knowledge...I said OS..they asked me questions related to it....I was not
able to answr them properly as i didi not revise d syllabus...But their were
few questions that i answered well...u should relate ur answers with
examples...They asked me if i know bout pointers n told me to write a simple
Also some questions based on UmL diagrams just becoz i had it in course...So
just remember to revise 1 subject...Then hey asked me if i ve any ques for
I initially said no sir...but they thought i was interested so they asked me
to tell without hesitation...i asked them bout the work i would be doin in
the company n regardin postings....
If u r already placed then they moght ask u d company n why u want to join
have a good n non-superficial answer....
okay then after waiting for bout 1 hour...they finally came in for declarin
they said they will take only 15....That minute i totally lost hope...They
were announcing d names one by one...n then they said Ela Vohra...n i was so
thankful to God...it felt really gt to ve been selected for IBM....
ALL THE BEST
