5. HR Interview
30 Aptitude & reasoning questions & 30 C questions.
Aptitude & Reasoning..
It consisted 1 verbal, 2 or 3 reasoning & remaining all were from quantitative aptitude.
It was little tough.
Its quit easy. A good Basic C knowledge s enough..
"TEST UR C SKILLS" of Yashavant Kanetkar will b very useful 4 this.
It was tough, since this was the most filtration round than others.
A survival level English is enough.. Dont shout at any instance.. What u speak s not considered; How u speak s important here.
Each group consisted 12 candidates.
We were told 2 select our own topic.
We selected "Is it acceptable the new rules of anna univ. on uniforms & cell phone use".
The GD organiser told not to quarrel in beginning itself.
It went on nearly 15 min. & finally one summarised..
Only 2 were selected from my group including me, since v both maintained a calm approach while speaking. while Most of others were not accepting other's points & shouted on even in the time of summarising.
It was not an elimination round. But they just check ur written communication. A good english without grammatical mistake s enough.
V have given a paper & given the topic "Why u like ur college & how it helped in improving ur personality" & 10 min time.
V all written more than 1 page.
While collecting the papers, the caritor people smiled & said. "We asked just a passage not an essay".
