Rated : +0 , -0
Hi Friends

I'm Bharath N, 6th sem, CSE, RYMEC, Bellary, Karnataka.. I attended Satyam campus interview held by BLDE Association, Bijapur. I am a Satyamite now..

No.of students attended : 416
No.of students got through written : 135
No.of students selected for satyam : 92

In Written test the questions are 15 and duration is 30 min. the aptitude questions are easier than logical reasoning.
Topics to be learnt:
1. Probability
2. Time & work
3. Pyramids
4. Simple interest & compound interest
5. Profit & loss
6. Paragraph conclusions
7. Data sufficiency
9. Logical reasoning
10. Blood relations.
11. Ages.

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 8 qns. But however I got through.

TECH/HR interview:
It was nearly 6pm in the evening when my turn came!!! It was very exhausting to wait for such a long time. I entered the room, praying to all kinds of Gods I knew.
Me: Bharath, sir.
Hr: So, where do we start? Bharath.
Me: (confidently) Where ever you like! Sir (with a big smile).
Hr: So tell me wat Technical courses you did during these years?
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.

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 in short time, finally the Satyam associate came over to the dias of the hall, it was 8 pm already. She started announcing the results according to the college. MY NAME WAS ANNOUNCED FIRST FROM OUR COLLEGE. 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..
