igate held at cochin on 3/04/04
Topics for GD were
1. Science an evil or not?
2. Business Process Outsourcing
There were 4 rounds apptidude, Group Discussion, Technical and HR.
Previously Apptidude had another pattern but it was not there for us
this time. It was for 30 mins and the questions were basically
english, simple aps (like find the next in the series), there were 5
sections, first was section with 10 questions, and the next was
given two cases and we have to tell abbout the inference, and third
was there were 4 or 5 sentences given in mixed order we have to
group them to form a meaningfull paragh and another one was logicall
reasoning from barrons. The Apptidude was very easy 25 out of 50 was
the cut off. Any one with little Apptidude skills and english
knowledge can solve it.
the next round round was Group Discussion. It was also very simple.
the HR asked us the topic . and it was also very simple no tight
filteration if you just open your mouth and say somethinmg it's
Then technical, the questions varied from panel to panel. in some
panel they didn't ven asked a single technical question. In my panel
he asked me the diffe. between while and for loop, steps to connect
to the db in java, then some sql queries, inclding refence keys,
outer join etc. i answered 90% of the questions
thatz it hr was just an eye wash. but answer politely
