ok,guys n gals honestly speaking i never thought i wud ever b getting into a s/w company bcoz of my average marks in engg n poor technical skills..but,here i am writing my experience after selection which was thru a marathon process leaving us all exhausted...

The Process:
getting 2 the selection process(as,i already mentioned a marathon 1),it was divided in2 3 parts:

Aptitude Test:
basically consists of 3 sections which include quantative ability,analytical ability & english section...all tat u ppl hav 2 do is b quick at quant(simple) where stuff like ratio proportion,%age,profit/loss,simple geometry,time & work & the like topics r asked...referring 2 r.s agarwal shud get u thru quant...as far as logic goes it was a bit tricky,but its manageable..stuff like binary form where if $=1 and *=0 then wat can ($***)+$* be expressed as????some questions on groups of ppl....all of these can b easily managed by solving some practise exercises frm ne logic/reasoning book...now,as far the english part is concerned u don hav b a rocket scientist 2 clear it...it is one of the most simplest n silliest questionnaires tat i hav ever seen...some vocabulary tests(silly) followed by article insertion(super dumb) n a passage wid some questions(super super dumb)...this section is not even worth mentioning so guys just chill as far as english is concerned n try n attempt it1st...

the apti consisted of 60 questions which ver 2 b answered in 70 mins...the subdivisons were as follows:
a) English(15 qs)
b) Analytical ability(15qs)
c) Quantitative ability(30qs)

Group Discussion (GD):
they made us wait a heck of a lot 4 this particular part...i cleared this part wid out ne stress at all...the topic given 2 us was "marriage:a social trap?" pls comment...the gd honestly was a cakewalk wherein if u speak up a little bit u wud b selected..jus b forthright n clear wid in ur views n don digress frm the topic...they give u fair chance 2 speak nehow...btw
v ver divided in2 groups of 10 ppl n there ver abt12 grps...don worry 2 much abt the gd..jus speak up in a concise way n b communicative...

Personal Interview (PI):
this,basically was conducted in variations 4 different ppl wherein some like me ver subjected thru both technical n hr interviews seperately while the others jus had a single interview...i will describe my experience thru both the interviews(hr
& technical):

k,ther was this expressionless man sitting in ther who as i entered asked me 2 take a seat n straightaway asked me the time...it was around 9.30 in the night n then he asked me as 2 ven i had come 2 college...i told him at abt 9 in the morning...he asked r u not tired after staying 4 so long??i tried 2 evade his question but eventually replied tat though i was a bit stressed i was very happy wid the way the selection process was conducted & it was a very fair process..he then asked usual stuff like tell me abt urself,where i tol him abt myself n y i wanted 2 b in the s/w industry...he asked me stuff like wat i thought was challenging abt the s/w industry..2 which i replied i liked erp-sap systems n the challenges faced by the industry 2 implement it in various sectors....actually,ppl 2 b honest wid i think they chk ur confidence n communication skills,the latter being the only 1 i was counting upon....after some more grilling,he said i wud hav 2 go 4 a technical interview 4 abt 5-10 mins...this was the only scary part 4 me....

a smart looking man with a mprominent moustache who was very polite took my technical interview..he again asked me
the same things like tell me abt urself n stuff...i gave the same damn answers which i had given during the time of my hr
interview..he asked me abt bubble sort algorithm which i wrote n then went in2 some confusing details abt for loops n stuff..i gave some ans 2 which he wasnt convinced...he then said 4get programming n asked me a puzzle which i attempted but cudnt solve ultimately..he tol me tat he dint expect me 2 give the answer 2 tat puzzle n many others had failed in doing so...he then wished me luck n tat was the end of my interview...

Result Declaration:
then they declared the results at abt 11.30 in the night ven everybody was dizzy n hungry n almost asleep..but neways the joy of getting selected overpowered all of tat...i must admit their selection process is very fair,n u get a fair chance...but at times more than the actual inerviews or the gds,the waiting period makes u feel like jus walking out...but as they say"good things don come easy"...os,guys if u r like me wid average %age,lack of interest in engg but gud communicational skills n other interests i suggest u still try n pick up placements bcoz every1 out ther is jus like us even though they may hav gr8 marks..n also all companies look 4 nowadays r adequate communication skills n reasonable analytical skills.......so y give up an opportunity,ven its comin walking up2 u,isnt it????
