Hi Friends

This is my first mail to the group.Recently i have attended SATYAM selection procedure on 20 & 21st of sep. I have cleared written test and GD but failed in interview. To my consious i did the interview very well but what they think is all that matters. Around 800 appeared . 240 thru to GD. 117 thru to INTERVIEW, n around 50 selected finally.

I am giving you the models of questions in written test.
Total 15 questions(1 mark each) r given 30 mins with 1/4 -ve marking. All r objective.

If SCOTLAND = 12345678,  SAT=453, DON=128, and SALT=3782  then  C = ?
SAT,DON,SALT are not the exact words that were given but similar .
LOGIC : C is not ther in any of the words other than 'scotland' and also 6. so  C = 6.

3 persons travelling in a train.Mr.SMITH,Mr.JONES n Mr.ROBINSON they r ENGINEER, FIREMAN n BRAKESMAN, but not respectively. Also travelling r 3 ladies with same names Mrs.SMITH, Mrs.JONES
n Mrs.ROBINSON.
1. Mr.ROBINSON lives in DETROIT.
2. BREAKSMAN lives in midway of CHICAGO n DETROIT.
3. Mr.SMITH beats fireman in a game of billiards.
4. Mr. JONES earns \$20000 per annum.
5. BREAKSMAN's nearest neighbour earns exactly 3 times that of BREAKSMAN.
Like this conditions r given and question asked is who is the ENGINEER?
I don't remember the exact conditions. Question is just tricky but not so tough to analyze.

A question on number series. Using the relation of the first series find out E?
57 58 118 357 1432
205         A                  B C D  E

A large question almost a page. Very simple to answer. Some 20 facts r given n a question below
which is not relevant to facts. So answer is NONE.
Just go thru the facts in  rapid fire n answer. Answer this question only at the last if time permits or else
u will be stuck with it.

Inferance question.

A square , rectangle, circle n triangle r drawn in a overlapped manner n some number r given in the intersection parts( like venn digrams).
square - cultivated area
rectangle - desert area
circle - electricity present
triangle - medical facilities
how much area is cultivated  with electricity present but have no medical facilities.
like this 3 questions r given, the easiest one.

1. A = B+C

A C prog to shift an array towards left is given with some blanks in the place of while conditions. Have to fill the blanks.

A problem which can be solved easily using venn diagrams.

A sequence of 4 diagrams is given n have to find out the next diagram in the sequence. they test ur logic thats it.

Technical Interview:
Q: what r the prog. languages u had? I told Assembly,C,C++,JAVA,VB,VC++
Q: Which generation of language is Assembly? I told 2 gen, since firstly they used to enter i/p in binary then to simplify the work Assembly is introduced.
Q: Assembly program execution is faster or slow? I told faster.
Q: What r 4th gen languages? I told i don't know
Q: What is STACK?
Q: Any other thing like STACK?
Q: why to use pointers?
Q: Which data type u use for pointers? data type of value which we want to point to. I said even we can have VOID pointers.
Q: What is the use of void ?
Q: Why do u need functions which return nothing?
Q: How do compile a JAVA program? Using JAVAC we compile and we get 'bytecode', then it is presented
to JVM which interprets the code and converts it into machine code.
Q: what is interpretation?
Q: What is differernce between Compilation and interpretation?
Q: In RDBMS what is referential integrety? I told about foreign and primary constrains.
he said it is no where relevant to my question. I was calm.
Thats what i remember from my tech interview. What i feel is u only ANSWER TO THE POINT ONLY.
then he has to ask something else or else he will dig deep from ur answers.
Again the HR took and started:
Q: What sports do u play, wat r other extra curricular activities do u have?
Q: wat is ur family background?
Q: Any problems faced during ur project not technically? want to test ur ability to work in a team.

thats wat i remember from my INTERVIEW.
It went nice and i also answered very confidently but ..
It was my first interview and after the interview was over i was very happy that i did so well to manage for more than half an hour before a panel of three. LUCK also should favour.Any way ALL THE BEST to all for your respective endeavours.
