pattern of Satyam.
As all Satyam aspirants know that there will be three rounds which
1. WRITTEN TEST (APPTITUDE)
We had our written test at around 11.00am and there are 15 questions to
be answered in 30 minutes these questions are quite easy and can be
solved by every one,U can get through the written if ur strong at basics
formulae but the important thing is time management bcz the questions
are too long .
(NOTE: Satyam had both lower and upper cut-off.so be careful and don’t
try to answer all the questions in the paper and there will be -ve
mark(1/4 ) for every wrong answer, so avoid guessing which may reduce ur
I am presenting u sm of the questions which I remembered; all these Q’s
are not exactly same.
A question from ages like relation btwn present father’s age & son’s age
were given and was asked to find the fathers age after some years
.exactly I haven’t remember the numerals so I am not presenting them.
On series completion like ac, be, cg, dc,? Ans:e(none of these)
Be careful sm questions have ans as none of these.
I5 men work for 8 hours a day and it take 9 days for them to complete a
work, then how many men had to work for completing the same work ,who
work for 7 hours a day and for 12 days?
Date sufficiency problem:
Polygon abcd is a rectangle?
1. Line ab is not parallel to line cd
2. Diagnal ac is shorter than the other diagonal bd
Ans: either of these pts is sufficient to say that the given polygon is
not a rectangle
Direction sense problem:
After walking 6km, I turned right and covered a distance of 2km, then
turned left and covered a distance of 10km. In the end, I was moving
towards the north. From which direction did I start my journey?
Problems from puzzle test and a diagram problem which can be solved by
using basic formulae (total angle in a ||eg is 360 and angle on a st
line is 180).
etc etc ………problems were given all of them relay on basics .
The results were announced at around 2.00 pm in which 93 students were
got thro’ it and on the next day we had our G.D followed by INTERVIEW.
On the second day of the interview around 150 students joined us, who
had there written test at MITS (madanapalli).All of us together divided
into various groups (10 each) by the satyam officials and we had our
Our topic is SOLUTION TO TERRIOSIM IN INDIA , we had a nice discussion
for abt 8 minutes and all of our group members are cooperative ,so 9
members from our group were selected in G.D and get thro’ third round.
If u r caught in an aggressive group then motivate them 2 hv a polite
discussion that will help u a lot.
After G.D all of us had a nice presentation on satyam, in which they
explained abt the philosophy of satyam and the working environment of
satyam, I am very impressed with there services and there philosophy.
Imp points to be noted during ppt was their philosophy, they are
· BELIEF IN PEOPLE (associates)
· ENTERPRENIEUR SHIP
· CUSTOMER ORIENTATION
· PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
The whole ppt will stress on one pt i.e. “THINK LIKE A C.E.O” i.e.,
every satyamite will have to consider himself as a C.E.O. how nice of it
considering himself as a C.E.O. and “EVERY SATYAMITE IS A LEADER”
These pts are important bcz u will have to fill a form be4 INTERVIEW in
which there will be Q’s like “WHY SATYAM” so be prepared for it.
After ppt results were announced, and the selected candidates were asked
to fill a form bcz in satyam they won’t consider our C.V .while filling
be individual don’t take answers form Ur friends it is also important
.some of the questions in the form to be filled by us are
Why satyam? what thing aspire u to join in satyam?
Why satyam want to hire u?
Where u will be the next 5 years?
These are the questions to be filled along with ur details.
There were 6 panels for interview all these panels are asking hr
But unfortunately the panel in which I entered is concentrating mainly
on technical, so be prepared for facing technical Q’s also in ur
respective subjects. There were asking basics
I am presenting some of my interview questions, most of them are basics
in dbms and sm are from my core subjects.
Firstly he invited me with a smile, and then he asked “TELL ME ABT UR
SELF” Then he asked technical questions, which are very basics for a
C.S.E student, and
Here are sm questions which I remember,
What is meant by tuple?
Full form of RDMS
What d u mean by it?
What is meant by pl/sql?
Diff btn compiler & interpreter?

etc etc ……
So frns be through with ur preparation bth in tech & normal hr questions
be confident in ur answers. Here I would like to hv a quotation which
can be adopted for bth G.D & INTERVIEW i.e., “A BATTLE WELL BEGUN IS A
BATTLE HALF WON”
