Hello friends,I'm Manas Srivastav,from Dehradun Institute Of
Technology,Dehradun,doing B.tech from Electronics &
Communication Engineering branch & in third year.I got
placed in Torry Harris Business Solutions on 30th
January,2007.A total of about 600 students (B.tech as well
as MCA) attended the selection process and finally 10
students got selected.I was lucky enough to be one of them.
The selection process comprises of 4 Rounds. The criterion
is 65% aggregate.
ROUND 1:Mathematical Aptitude Test.
Consists of 20 really tough maths questions, time alloted is
20 mins.There is no negative marking. It is really difficult
to solve those 20 questions in the given time.Try to solve
as quickly as possible.
Mostly questions were given from R.S.Agarwal book e.g. time
and work, trains & speed, age problems,displacement
problems,area & volume,mensuration,quadratic
equations,cordinate geometry etc
225 students cleared the first round.
ROUND 2:Technical Aptitude Test.
This test also consists of 20 questions and the time alloted
is 20 mins. Again there are no negative marking and the
paper is branch specific. As i'm in ECE branch so i can give
insight on my branch only. Questions were mostly from
Semiconductor devices & materials, VLSI Fabrication &
design, Microprocessors, Signals & Systems. Automatic
control systems, Electromagnetic field theory, Antennas,
Principles of communication, Signal Processing etc. The
questions were not that tough so no special preparation is
required. About 100 odd students cleared the second round.
ROUND 3:Group Discussion.
The Topics were really easy. They gave us the oppurtunity to
select our own topic. My topic was "Can Business & Ethics go
hand in hand". 55 students were selected for the final
ROUND 4:Interview Round.
This is the HR interview round. All the selected students
were taken to the seminar hall and asked to come in a group
of two. The interview was mostly HR in nature but some
students were asked technical questions too. some questions
2)Hobbies & interests.
3)strengths & weakness.
4)how do you perceive yourself 4-5 years from now?
5)Reasons for joining the software field.(This question is
important for non CSE students)
6)Extra curricular activities.
7)favourite subject in school(I chose physics and they
immediately asked me what is Hisenberg's uncertainity
principle.... but do not get afraid.Just pause for a moment
& then answer.)
8)Situation Based Questions(They gave me a situation that
"if you are given 10 million bucks,which industry would you
set up & why........").
The results were declared in about 45 minutes and i was one
of the lucky ones who got through........I was ecstatic and
couldn't control my emotions. The pay package is good and
the most important thing is that there are no bonds. I'm
thankful to god for giving me everything i wished
Best of luck to you all. See you at Bangalore......
