IBM - ABES Interview Experience, Ghaziabad, 27 Jan 2013.
I am Garima jain. I would like to share my interview experience with you for IBM off campus referral drive held on 27 jan 2013.
There were 4 rounds.
1. Online aptitude test:
This section had no -ve marking.
It consisted of two types of questions.
1. Series- it was a number series.
Approx 20 questions were there and you have 2.15 minutes to solve each. you cannot go back to previous questions once you have marked it or time has expired.
Questions were quite tough , you need a good practice and faster calculations.
2. After series there were general aptitude questions. They were easy but tricky and quite calculative. Again time given was 2.15 min. Questions were very basic but tricky and lengthy.
After 1st round we were asked to wait. About 15 mins later results were declared. They announced the name of both selected and non selected students.
And I was in selected one. :).
Clearing 1st round means you are 75% selected.
Round 2- English test:
It was easy.
You had to answer 22 ques in 20 minutes. again no -ve marking.
Objective questions were there. Questions were like out of 4 options which are in active, which are in passive, which uses correct punctuation, some general basics of business email , like should use smiley or not, use of blue pen is appreciated to sign docs etc.
It was easy like a cake walk.
Round 3 - GD:
Groups of 10 were made.
Topic given was Social networking- stay connected on a go.
It was basically a selection round . only those ppl who didn't speak at all or werenot Confident and fluent ere rejected. out of 10 , 8 were selected in my group.
Round 4- Interview:
I was made to wait for 3 hours for interview.
Finally my turn came.
