Hi Friends,...............

Criteria : 55% or above , no live ATKT

Total students Appeared : 30

Selected After Aptitude :11

Selected Finally : 4

The selection procedure was as follows :

Aptitude Test
Technical Interview
HR Interview
1. Aptitude Test :

It had 2 sections – Total marks- 45. Time – 50 mins

a. Java --- 20 questions (.1 mark each) Cut off - 8

b. Quantitative Aptitude --- 25 questions (1 mark each) cut off -13

There was –ve marking of -0.25 for each wrong answer.

Java Questions were tricky. They stressed on inheritance ,Garbage collection ,C++ questions were also there….we had to find out the output of the programs given.

Quantitative was easy…..questions were good n difficulty level was moderate. I referred Abhijeet Guha book for Aptitude and R.S.Agarwal also. You have to be fast in this section so that u can give more time to Java.

2.Technical Round :

After the Aptitude Test….only 11 students were selected for this round. I was one of them. They asked me the following questions….

Q: What is the difference in C++ and Java ?

A: I told all major differences.

Q: What is the difference between pass by value and pass by reference ? Which is better n why ?

A : I answered…..Pass by reference n value first n said pass by reference is better coz we save memory here as only the references have to b changed n final result is reflected at the original place of storage itself.

Q : U have any plans for higher studies ?

A : No sir……I want to work.

Q: What r ur strengths and weaknesses ?

A : I told……

Q: Do u have any problems in working in shifts ?

A : No problems sir.

Q: What is ur preffered Job location ?

A : Pune is my first choice……anywhere in India and I am ready to go abroad on a company project.

That was all. The Panel was friendly. My suggestion would be that be cool n composed while answering……be confident n dress smartly.

There were no eliminations after this round. All 11 students gave HR round also.

3.HR Round :

Here I was asked …..

1.What r ur hobbies ?

2.What do u know aboutt Siemens ?

I was then asked to leave. After this I was called in the room again and was told that I am selected. I was really happy. After appearing for 9 companies n giving 4 interviews I was finally selected.
