INTERVIEW : IBM INTERVIEW PATTERN AT WEST BENGAL
Total no. Of Stud :85 26
Apti qualified :26 14
GD qualified :22 13
Final Selection: 9 5 (rest 2 each frm B.tech & M.tech)
The Accent test was not there. (we also came to know only on that day). But b prepared, it was there in some of the colleges.
One more surprising thing-all the 9 students selected were boys.
It started at abt 10:00 am. It was nothing new, just old things only, but concentrate it may help u during ur interview.
2. Aptitude Test
SECTION 1: matrix test (15 ques, 13 min. no -ve marks)
3 matrices were given- 5 ques on each matrix.(total 15 ques).
It was all of similar type, u must hav got it frm other papers. The important thing is b fast; don't waste time on any one question.
SECTION 2: Series test (20 ques .4 mins .1/4 -ve marking)
Ques were v.v easy BUT u have to b fast, if at the first or the second look u solve it .its good else leave it. None of us could attempt all the questions(I did 13 or 14 of that)
SECTION 3: This section is tough. U must practice to do this section. (12 ques 15 min. ¼-ve marking).
Most of the ques were from time and work, one was from ratio-proportion. u can get the ques from other papers, I exactly don't remember the data.(after the series test ur mindset will b to solve the ques in a hurry, but b cool, read the questions completely then start solving)
(I stood third in the aptitude test, first was also a MCA student, he was also selelcted, but 4th (MCA) & 5th (MCA) were not selected).
3. GD round
My topic was "Primary education is more important than higher education¯. it was cool. no tension. Everybody from my group was selected.(8 candidates).
The topics of other groups were: "Cricket VS Olympic¯ & "Engineers should not go outside to work¯ (it was nothing but a new version of "Brain Drain¯).
