Written test was very easy there were 20 questions in 20
minutes. There were 2 sets of papers. Mostly questions were
different only 2 or 3 were same .I remembered some
Ø 1 question was on clock (find degree between hour hand and
minute hand at 3:15)

Ø 1 question was on the relationships.
Ø 1 question was on direction
1. Two friends each travel 4 k.m in the opposite direction
and then turned in there L.H.S and travel for another 3 k.m.
Now what is the final distance between them.(answer is 10).
Ø 3 questions was on series ( simple ones)
Ø 2 questions were on the simple calculation
1. There are 6 roads to reach to a city named as A, B, C, 1,
2, 3. A is blocked by flood, 1 is jammed. B is blocked due
to maintenance, 3 is blocked due to an accident, and C is
permanently blocked so by which way we can reach to the
2. The 100 toys cost Rs. 300 how much the 300 toys will
Ø 2 questions were very difficult (if it is 1 in the circle
then how many will be there in an octagon) so that those
went over my head.
Mostly the questions were easy, there was 3 or 4 questions
those were difficult, rest was the simple ones. Main thing
is the time management because it is very less time to solve
out all the questions. Just keep your mind cool before the
exam .Cut off was around 13 so13 solid answers are enough
for clearing the test .don’t waste time & do all the guesses
as there is not any negative marking .The R.S AGGARWAL is
enough for the practice .Result was declared after 1 and a
half of hour.
2nd:- TECHNICAL TEST :- (NO NAGATIVE MARKING)
Written test was easy there were 20 questions in 20 minutes.
There were 2 sets of papers. Mostly questions were different
only 2 or 3 were same .I remembered some question:-
Ø What will be output of: - printf(“ bye!\b\bhello”);
Ø What will be the output of the program (there was a
semicolon after the for loop practice such type of
Ø Linux was developed by?
Ø How will u print % by printf statement.
Ø 2 questions on the basis of computer fundamentals.
Ø 2 questions were on the operating system.
Ø In my set about 10 questions were from C (almost all of
them were from Exploring C )
Ø In another set 4 or 5 questions were of C++ ( all from the
TEST UR C++ SKILLS)
Ø Mostly questions were based on evaluating the output of
the program as given in the EXPLORING C.
About 10 questions were easy; there were about 5 questions
those were so so rest was the difficult ones. Main thing is
to concentrate on the problem. The time is more than enough
if u has practiced well the EXPLORING C, TEST UR C SKILLS &
TEST UR C++ SKILLS. Just keep your mind cool before the exam
.Cut off was around 11 or 12 so12 solid answers are enough
for clearing the test. Fill all the questions.
3rd:- GROUP DISCUSSUION:-
We were 60 who qualified for the G.D.They divided us in 4
groups, each consisting of 15 members.
Topics of G.D.:-
1. Is it right time for Sachin Tendulkar to retire from
cricket or not?
2. Should Sourav Ganguly be appointed again as the captain
of the Indian team?
It took hardly 5 to 6 minutes to finish one G.D. Since the
time is less for 15 students so you should be quicker then
others .They gave us the topic, my topic was the 1st one and
gave 1 minute to recall the points about the topic and then
asked to start discussion. It was the nice G.D. Your
communication skills and 2 or 3 strong points related to the
topic are enough for clearing the G.D.
Some of us could not speak. So just after 5 or 6 minutes,
they stopped us and asked those to give their views who
could not speak, one by one. Speak confidently, loudly and
your voice should be audible. It is not the case that always
you will be starting person, if your points are strong
enough then no one can’t stop you. Don’t create a fish
With the 44 selected students for the last round, they
started their PPT. It took 30 to 40 minutes to finish. Be
attentive in the PPT because it can help you in the
interview. If you are serious about company then you should
shoot 1 or 2 good questions.
4th:–PERSONAL INTERVIEW (Technical + HR):-
Immediately after the PPT they started the interview
process. There was the rumor that there is only HR interview
but they were asking the Technical questions also .There
were 3 interviewers in the 3 interview panels. On my turn I
went to the room. There was a lady interviewer.
She asked me:-
Tell me about yourself?
You have a good academic record then why have you chosen the
B.Sc and MCA in spite of B.Tech?
Have you any problem in relocation at Bangalore ?
Why do you want to go to Bangalore because it is very far
In what subjects are you comfortable?
What do mean by the string?
What are the different types of databases?
What do you mean by data structure?
Do you have any brother or sister?
What is he doing?
Do you want to ask any questions? (Always prepare 2 or 3
good questions for asking to the interviewer
The madam was very friendly. My interview was mainly HR but
they were asking the Technical questions also to other
students. So prepare well for the interview. Concentrate on
your C.V. It is really VERY VERY important part.
Here you require to note the most important thing they
calculate the average of each step and give weight age to
each step so give your best from the very first round. My
interview was not up to the mark but they still select me as
I think due to my good performance in earlier rounds. Only a
good and bad performance in the interview does not ensure
your selection. Prepare all the HR questions ask all from
you and prepare the best answers.
It was my most unforgettable moment. Because I have placed
finally after struggling in 6 companies. So it’s all about
LUCK that works on your hard work.... so keep working.
Someday will be reserved for you...
I hearty thanks to all who contributed to Freashersworld.com.
It really helped me a lot. I finally thank one and all who
have helped me through out my carrier and especially my
Parents who are behind me and my Lovable and Caring Friends
group and my whole class who always encourage me to give my
level best in each company.
BEST OF LUCK FRENDZ…. Just work hard and you’ll make it…
Hope to see you all in TORRY HARRIS …..
