L&T INFOTECH PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 27 MAR 2007 - INDORE
I'm Akash Singh Rathore frm. Indore. I got selected in L & T Infotech & want 2 share my experience wid u. In Tech mahindra, apti + tech.interview cleared but failed to cleared HR due to my inconsistency in Percentage of B.E....not cleared the apti. Of birla soft bcoz of tech. ques (java, dbms etc)....
The Selection procedure is as below-
1.Aptitude (90 questions- 90 minutes)
It consisted of 3 sections. There were 3 different sets of questions.
It is from R.S.agarwal, some ques. were same as given in RS Agarwal even they don't change the values, be prepared wid the following topics thoroughly percentage permutation/combination, Time & work, Time, speed & distance (train etc.), Profit & loss, Ratio & proportion, Mixtures and alligation .Ques on Matrix calculation (very easy)
2]Logical & Analytical(30 questions)
Questions on venn diagram,...&....quest. Like ram plays violin, shyam plays guitar, mohan plays tabla....then some conditions...then questions based on that...if u r preparing 4 CAT then questions are Easy enough to achieve sectional cutoff....On counting the no. of Triangles & squares in a given Fig. if P*Q means P is sister of Q, P+Q means P is Q daughter(i dont remember the correct ques), then how can v express that T is aunt of S ...
i think this section..most easy and intersting section..
It was easy, so attend it first....Synonyms were there, like:-ABHOR ..all .frm. BARRONS 4 GRE .Analogy ques. Sentence correction (Easy)
A small Passage and ans 4rm the passage directly...... first read the questions & then the passage, it will b easier 2 search the ques .(Easy).Arranging sentences in order(3 or 4 questions). Finding errors in a sentence(3 Qs)
Reading passage (5 questions): easy to score atleast 4 marks out of 5 by reading questions and coming to passage to search answer also less time consuming
Note: there are 3 sets of papers almost same standard. No Negative marking.... There is sectional cutoff so u need to score in all sections properly..attempt atleast 20 ques. Frm. Each sections ..then probability 4 ur selection will b more....
Try scoring in all sections by allotting equal time to all sections then if time is left go back to checking
Try out hit and trial (trial & error method as some may call it) it is a simple and time saving technique in competitive exams.
v had a grp of 15. Topic was 'Do we need RESERVATION in higher studies'. v had 3mins 2 think then we were individually asked our opinion..dont look at the Moderator bcoz the discussion is between d group members. Some of our group members continuously looked at moderator but they were rejected ....talk 2 all ur team-members..........make authentic & valuable pts. then at the end u r allowed 2 discuss openly.... dont get aggressive..... dont fight.. stick 2 ur pt.... put points firmly and always try to get others support too. try to keep latest information on the topic.
NOTE:-don't point fingers on any group member. Only 5 out of 15 were selected frm. our group..but in another batch all of d 15 candidates were selected....so be confident....they just check ur communication skills & knowledge & creativity....also clarity of thoughts... Once u clear the GD..u r on ur way.... almost selected..but don't b over confident..
The next round was Profile Interview....once you pass the GD round..90 % of the chances you are in.. but dnt' take it lighlty as i have seen many of my frnds being rejected from the interview.. you have to fill up a form..(remember 1 thing...write all d entries in such a manner that shows ur passion abt L&T) Questions will be asked from your family background..education..hobbies..yourself..
