TORRY HARRIS PAPER ON 24th JULY
hi frnds,iam Abhishek frm Siddharth institute of engg &
Technology,Puttur.nd my stream is IT. I attended for THBS on
24th july,2007 at Vellore institute of technology,vellore.nd
it was an off campus.i don't know that there exists a
company named Torry Harris up till 5 days before my
interview.i saw this name in my notice board nd astonished
nd our frnds just kidded as HARRY POTTER.....
ok,coming to my experience regarding the company.let me
first tell u the pattern or rounds of THBS.
There were 5 rounds in this.which comprises of 3 written
1.Aptitude- 20 min & 20 Questions
2.Logical Reasoning-20 min &12 Questions
3.Technical-20 min & 20 Questions.
Around 800 people attended for the written test.400 cleared
Aptitude written.out of 400,200 cleared logical.out of 200
only 75 cleared Technical written.This was how the
filteration took place in every stage.nd it was a very very
fair selection process that i had ever seen before.nd this
was my 7th company....
1.for aptitude they gave some simple maths regarding
so,be thorough with basic maths.nd one more thing there were
differnt sets of question papers nd i think 38 sets of
question papers were distributed on tat day.nd luckily my
paper consisted of some easy questions,i identified them nd
i solved them first nd later shifted to other difficult
ones.nd the cutoff for this section is 12or 13 out of
20.after 1 hr results were announced and
luckily my name was there.
2.nd then the logical test was conducted nd tat was a very
difficult one.2 puzzles,2 small passages given nd asked to
conclude,nd some others.R.S.Agarwal verbal & nonverbal is
reqd for this,the puzzle tests were difficult,but my
practice helped me.so,i did 1 puzzle correctly nd two
passages correctly rest all guess.as paper was difficult
cutoff was less as i expect it is some 5 or 6 out of 12,in
this round time is very important.
3.Technical was some wat easier for me becoz iam frm IT
backup.i did well.they asked C,pgm & deduce o/p.nd some
theory questions like unix was introduced by-Bell labs.such
stuff was given.nd luckily i got thru all the writtens.for
technical TEST UR C SKILLS by yashwanth kanetkar nd
EXPLORING C are preferred.they r more than enough.
4.after the announcement of Technical results i.e.,
according to GD batches-75 members as 5 batches(15 in one
batch).nd then the HR SESHAV GUPTA gave a small description
abt the company.nd then GD-our topic is.........."How is
Western culture harpening Indian youth."nd i did well in GD-only
for 6 min GD.got selected...
5.nd then the HR+TECHNICAL.3 panels.i was called around at
10:00pm(night) of tat day for HR.my panel is one.nd seshav
gupta is my HR.he is main HR.i enterd the room with
some of my HR questions are:
1.why ur academic graph is so steep.
2.asked some tecnical que regarding UML,HTML nd little C.one
que is " wat is process area" nd i told it hotch-potch then
he explained.only confidence plays the role.nd eye contact
is very important.
3.asked abt my ppt "quantum cryptography"
4.then abt my strengths which i kept in my resume-"fanatic
abt new things" nd "ambivert in nature"-asked to justify
them.nd abt hobbies nd then general que like wats ur father
nd any bros nd sis....tats it i answered with confidence.nd
i impressed him well.
"CONFIDENCE is the main thing".nd atlast at abt 11:30pm
results were announced nd by GOD's grace my name was
there...nd on tat day iam the most happiest person on the
out of 800 people only 28 got selected finally.(luckiest
persons iam one among them).so,if the day is urs u will be
placed or else u will not be...tats it.so,strive hard until
u succeed but don't give up.
hope my experience will help a lot.nd see many of the
readers as my colleagues in THBS.....
"ALL THE BEST"
