iGATE PATTERN - SEP 2005 - HUBLI
I got thro' the campus interview of iGATE Global Solutions held at
B.V.B.college ,Hubli(Karnataka). I am a 2006 batch B.E., E&E student.
Eligibility criteria for us:
60% aggregate in B.E.
All subjects to be cleared in 1st attempt.
There were 5 rounds.
1. Aptitude test-50Q in 30 min.
Questions r easy. We can easily answer 37-40 questions in 30min if u r fast
enough. Remaining 10-12 questions, I could not read. I just marked them
randomly after the question paper was taken back. Some questions were too
easy, some were from R.S.Agarwal, and last 15Q were english comprehension
questions which take a lot of time. Read them only if u have time atlast.
Don't leave any question unmarked. No negative marking. The cut-off i think
was 36-38 out of 50.
2. Technical written test-20 Q in 12 min.
12 minutes r more than enough. Questions were on Operating systems, Unix,
Electronics(Abbreviations of TTL,CMOS,etc.,). 70% of the questions were
repeated from the old campus papers. Go thro' the previous papers of iGATE.
I think the cut-off was 15 or 16 out of 20.
3. Group discussion.
There were groups of 9 students each. We were given the option 2 select the
topic by ourselves. It was cool. Don't talk too much or too little. Enter
into the discussion atleast 4-5 times. Don't do personal attacks. Don't get
aggressive, Don't shout. Be a good listener also and let others talk. My
topic was-"Who r more happier? We or our ancestors"
4-5 were selected from each group.
4.Technical & HR interview.
Tecnical for me as I am an E&E student, was fully C,C++ and microprocessors.
The interviewers were cool.
For CS students, they asked about OS,VHDL, C,C++,etc., Be perfect in
whatever subject u r given to choose.
HR int fully on whatever u have written in ur resume & the company form
provided 2 u. More importance on ur projects & paper presentations if any.
All d best Vishal.
