IBM PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 23 MAR 2007 - AMARAVATI
I'm Apeksha Dengre, 3rd year B.E computers student from SSPM'S College Of Engg, Amravati, Maharashtra. On 23rd March'07 I got 1st chance to appear for campus interview. Being 1st chance I was quite nervous but managed somehow, and now finally I GOT PLACED IN IBM Global Sevices. It was really a dream come true.
ROUND 1 :
This was an aptitude test. It was simple and easy but needs your concentration. Aptitude Test had 55 questions divided in 4 sections.
1) English Section:
In this sectin there were in all 10 ques. of which 5 were based on a given paragraph. Rest 5 were too easy, they included filling up articles and prepositions, also synoms. you can easily get through this section.
2) Logical Aptitude:
This section had some logical ques. easy can be solved using venn diagrams. Also had some ques on blood relation ship. It was somewhat this way
(unknown values) A company manufactures juicies of different flavours like orange, mango, pineapple, strwberry etc etc. and some conditions are given as it manufactures 4 packs of pure orange juice, 7 packs of banana juice, 3 packs of mixed orange and mango and so on and u r told to find the other quantity such as... How many pure mango packs are manufactured?
try solving it with help of venn diag.
3) Attention to Detail:
This was very easy n interesting section. here some options are given and u need to identify which of them are alike and then mark your final answer.
for eg. a)XXGFXGGY b)XXGGFXGY c) XXGFXGGY d)XXFFGXXGY.
you are given answer options as 1) a & b are alike.
2) b & d are same
3) a & c are alike.
In this case answer is 3)a & c are alike.
So here u need a careful eye and good concentration. there were 4 ques of this type so this helps u add up to your score.
It also had some symbolic ques as if '1' is represented by '$' and "0" by '*' then what is the value of $$$*$*. somewhat like this. These are really logical and are time consuming here you need to use binary logic.
4) Computer Fundamentals:
This was a bit tough for me as I didn't have much knowledge bout DBMS but there wer some basic ques. In some ques. you'll be given a program and u need to sort out the errors. u can mange it if you r good at technical.
That was all about the aptitude test. As we finished with it we were given a plain answer sheet and were made to write an essay on spot, time alloted was 15 mins.
our essay topic was: MONEY BRINGS IRRESPONSIBLITIES.
Just be clear with your views and use good English & some proverbs. don't jumble up just divide the essay in three parts. A bit of intro. then u can go for present senario your view for it and then sugesst some eg if come to your mind how can u make best of your money and lastly conlude it confirming your opinion. thats all.
Now it was a time we were curiously waiting for results. It was around 1 pm results were displayed finally and there I saw my name. This made me more nervous but same time excited. Then we all were made to be seated in one room where they gave us a form we were told to fill up and complete nacessary formalities. IBM coordinators are very polite and friendly they help u get through each step.
Now finally Interview round started and countdown begins. Soon I was called. I started with --plz may i come in sir. There were 12 panels each of one. The person who interviewed me was gentlemen with smile on his face. He greeted me -- "hello Apeksha, have a seat".
At 1st he told me to introduce myself. I started very nicely. I tolde him my strengths n achievements. he further asked me my weakness. I answer "i'm talkative" he said in what way it's ur weakness. I explained it. He then asked me some ques. about paper I presented as it was included in my CV. then i was questioned on my hobbies. I had told "webrowsing". then he came towards TI. some ques he asked were...

Then he question me some situational as if u r working in IBM with a group of ppl and u need to work with them....n so on...
He asked me "Do you know that IBM is a known as BIGBLUE?" i said "No sir, but asked hin if i could make a guess". He smilingly replied "sure!!". Then he further continued with situational ques. and finally said "i'm truely satisfied on my side, you may wait for the results". and then was time simply to hold ur heart and final results were announced by 8 pm and I WAS FINALLY SELECTED !!
