CAPGEMINI PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 12 JUL 2007
In general Kanbay (or) Capegemini is conducting it's test pattern as follows:
-----1) written test --> mathematics + analytical (very easy)
-----2) group discussion
-----3) general interveiw (technical partly & maximum of hr)
1. Written criteria:
at 11:00 we have attended 4 written
I feel that as an enginnering student it can be answered without any preparation since mathematics is our intermediate basis & analytical is our commonsense...
Mathematics---->30 ques + }---->60 min & correct--1m; wrong--->1/4 -ve marking;
Cutoff---->min of 10m in each section......
No "over" cutofff...
Attended : 300
passed : 66
I Did well & luckily I'm one of 66.....
2. Group discussion:
12 a batch ; totally 6 batches... our topic is "ragging in campuses" iam the initiater ; fluent in english & started smartly by replacing, the culture of ragging with interaction among sr's & jr's.....
I Lead the team efficiently through out my discussion by
---> releasing new points when deviation in team observed
like organisation of events like sports & freshers meet to have healthy interaction among them
---> made the team to run on my words & ultimately gaining trust from them to my point
---> good body language;evoking points like by frequent get-togethers with sr's jr's can acquire academic knowledge efficiently & faster than single one's...
---> So, initiate; come with good points whenever necessary; etting consensus is quite important at the end... U get selected in gd if u follow this
Result :out of 66 ;;;"44" are selected since all batches done well as a team & group... I'M one of themmmm...

--> After my answering to all questions he asked
Only one thing that "how can u give ur answers in such an effective way!!!!
I Think u have prepared every word before interview ????????"
answer: to be honest "yes" sir ...
--> Then his question was "so u speak all this formally because of interview but not really??"
answer: no sir "words are not coming from mind,,,evoking from my "heart".......""
