Hi guys this is venkatesh

I have attended the test of patni on November 10 2007 which was conducted in st joseph engg college(OFF CAMPUS) . I do know the exact head count but it might be 450+ .The recruitment process is so simple and transparent

The selection procedure consists of 3 stages:
First corporate presentation
Followed by
1. Aptitude

2. GD

3. Tech+HR

1)15 questions Verbal
2)15 questions Analytical Reasoning.
3) 30 questions Quantitative Aptitude.

Time 1hr 10min

Total questions =60



B.E / B.TECH ----3LACS (2007 batch) as per slide presentation


It is damn easy guys if u are fluent in English then no preparation needed .Else see this article prepositions etc .Then Reading comprehension this is the very time consuming part.you read the whole paragraph when u try to ans the qís I am sure ans is not in the passage but it is a general one.so donít waste time there

Analaytical reasoning:

Please work out


blood relations

seating arrangement etc

please read RS agarwal verbal and non verbal reasoning

Quantitative Aptitude.

The majority is from

Profit and loss


Alligation mixtures

Ratio and proportion

If you learn this surely u can crack the test

Hopefully there is some sectional cut off I think so attempt in all areas

Do not concentrate on one part alone

Have eye on ur watch time will run like anything


They conducted first round around 11 o clock and gave one hour ten minutes

After that they asked to finish lunch and come

Man never miss St joseph food especially Non veg had a great lunch

Forgetting the campus tension and around 2 30 the results were announced

From first round they shortlisted 210


7 batches 10 per batch

Similarly two more groups were there

Gd topics

Orkut should be banned or not

China a threat to India

India in 2020

My topic was India on 2020

In my topic all were shouting but our HR mam was so nice she gave opportunity for all

My first point itself was wrong I was deviating away from the topic

Tht mam said frankly and ask to talk abt the topic so I never left my confidence and spoke and finally they asked to summarize the topic each of us and finally asked everyone to write abt patni luckily a day before I have prepared the company profile

Else no problem listen to the slide what they shw its more than enough

Finaaly from our team 5 got shortlisted and I am one of them

But there was also a case in which 9 people got selected out of 10 .so donít think they will filter do ur job rest will happen automatically

We waited for one and half hour they gave one application form and asked to fill details

I was very happy as though I got the job but any way waiting for the HR round finally HR called .also my HR is so nice he is very quite and asked

Tell abt urself

Ur project

Then asked to say a fav subject

I choosed oops

He then asked

Virtual function



Constructor destructor

Software engg also he asked (waterfall life cycle model)

Then DBMS wat is normalization did not answered

Then finally asked what is current trend going in IT industry (I do know but I blabbered he found that I do know so he stopped)

And said the results will be published at the end of the day so wait he said

After 2 hours at 8 30 the results were published and I am one among them

I am patni ite . I got many new friends there we shared many fruitful issues even if didnít get selected donít get vexed u will get good friends new prespective of ideas .

Guys also be prepared for technical also I thought they will conduct only one round but patni is fast they conducted every round within a single day and announced the result within same day. So prepare for all rounds

Guys this is my 58 th interview and finaaly I have won the battle. I have consequently failed for 57 times but never let my hope.so always prepare urself for the next interview never let ur confidence my best wishes to meet u in patni

Keep this in mind

Success should not go to ur head

Failure should not go to your heart
