The recruitment process is of 4 stages:
2. Essay writing
In written test the questions are 15 and duration is 30 min. the aptitude questions are easier than logical reasoning.
Topics to be learnt:
2. Time & work
4. Simple interest & compound interest
5. Profit & loss
6. Paragraph conclusions
7. Data sufficiency
9. Logical reasoning
10. Blood relations.
NOTE: There is 1/4th negative marking in written test. It doesn't have sectional cutoff but it has both lower cutoff & higher cutoff, for us it was around 7 (lower). The questions were entirely different 4m those earlier papers posted here, so make sure that u r well prepared. The questions were very lengthy. Time management is very important!!!!! I was able to attempt hardly 87 qns. But however I got through. Then there was the round of essay writing. My topic was 'beauty contest degrade women'. We were asked to write 300-350 words in 5 min. There were several other topics loks 'advantages of smoking' and etc. frnds be prepared with all current affairs.
HR and Technical were seperate rounds. First HR was held. After getting through hr u can appear for Technical. They only see ur English, power of reasoning and body language.
HR: What is your name?
Hr: So, where do we start? Me: (confidently) Where ever you like! Sir(with a big smile).
Me: I told him C & C++.
Hr: C? interesting, then write a program for calculating the Compound interest.(He gave the reqd data).
Me: Surely sir.(I rememberd only the formula which I had studied the day before, Luckily) I wrote the pgm and showed to him.
Hr: Oh, you done with it? Let me see.(I showed the paper)
Me: Explained the logic & most importantly I WAS VERY CONFIDENT!!
Hr: Your interview is over, you can go!!
Me: (Shocked) Sir, I have some questions for you..
Hr: No, I'll clarify later, you please leave.
there were many other questions I DONT REMEMBER.
I thanked him and left, in confusion and uncertainty. I told all my friends that I am gone. So, the results were to be announced... MY NAME WAS ANNOUNCED. FINALLY I WAS SELECTED, I REALISED LATER THAT IT WAS MY CONFIDENCE THAT GOT ME THROUGH .. FINALLY I'M A SATYAMITE!!!. HAPPINESS ALL OVER.. SO THE KEY IS CONFIDENCE, accordin to me. Be confident and win the race..
