This is GAURAV from Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal. Recently Cognizant visited our College for Campus selections. Approximate 300 members attended written exam, 95 cleared the written test & totally 37 got placed in the Company. Luckily I am also one of the 37 members who got placed. So I want to share my experiences with u.
Before giving the pattern pls note these imp points. u have to fill up some questions before the test.
1.ur sem marks

They will surely ask questions from above when u go to interview. So pls be prepared for the answers.
Cognizant paper consists of three sections. they are
1)analytical 25 questions 30 minutes
2)verbal 25 questions 20 minutes
3)attention 20 questions 20 minutes
1) ANALATICAL: It had data suficiency-5q, q's like if '1' is '$' (binary)-5q's and cubes-5q's
cubes q's was:
two cubes are there. one is cut into 125 parts and the other is cut into 216 parts and both these cubes are joined to form a cuboid. all the corner cubes are removed and the whole cube is painted - 5q's based on these like how many have only 1 side, 2side painted. questions on vein diagrams.
2) find correct sentences/incorrect sentences and two passages
