HSBC PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 26 OCT 2007 - MUMBAI
I m ROHAN and I apeared for the HSBC GLTi aptitude on 26th Oct. 2007. The criteria was 60% agg. in 10th, 12th and till ur current BE sem. It was the easiest aptitude I ever took in my life ! believe me guys i didnt prepare a single topic for aptitude but i found it damn easy and i cleared it.
There were four sections,
1.English (The easiest section-fill in the blanks of prepositions, readin compre. was also too easy)
4.Technical aptitude.(C, C++, Data Structure and analysis of algorithms).
Total 90 Questiones were there almost 1Hr 30 mins time. No sectional cut off. No negative marking for each section they used to give 20-30 mins (varied depending on sections). aptitude was on paper. but then too they will give 20 mins only for every section coz after every 20 mins they used to take the previous sections Q paper back. its easy but to be on the better side u should study for technical atleast. i cleared apti and went for technical intrview.
My Interviewer was a very cool guy, he was wearing jeans and T-shirt Long hair Like MS dhoni.
me: May i come in sir.(u should always ask !)
sir: Yes please.
he: told me to sit
me: Good afternoon sir.
sir: Good afternoon.
he went through my resume in few seconds and...
sir: Tell me about urself ROHAN.
me: Answered this qstn for almost 5-7 mins. spoke many many things about me ! This is the questn where u can impress any of the interviewer in the world. Just be urself. DOnt show him that u r nervous.
rather make that interview a discussion sort of thing.
sir: Whats ur BE project.
me: explained everything about my project.
sir: asked me qstns on C, C++(very simple).
(never mention any programming language by urself they will ask u deep qstns one of my frnd said "I know Java" and he was screwed in Java and got rejected!)
me: answered every qstn.
sir: So ROHAN ur project is in Database right? (And he started asking qstns from SQL, DBMS.)
me: answered every qstns with confidence.
(by luck he asked everything which I was knowing so nowhere I went wrong.)
sir: ok ROHAN thats it. Do u have any qstns?
me: asked three qstns.
sir: answered my qstns.
me: complemented his style.
sir: Thank u ROHAN.
me: thank u sir. Nice talking wid u sir.
