MindTree - Indore, 3rd and 4th sept, 2012
I am hereby sharing the experience of MindTree campus drive in our college. It was a closed campus and hence confined only to our college students. The campus drive was scheduled on 3rd and 4th sept,2012 in CDSE, Indore. We were intimated that the exams will be online.
Before this year, the company came to our college 2 times in 2011 n 2010 but then the exams were conducted on papers and so there were some dilemma regarding the level of paper.
But on d day of judgement, we all arrived quite anxious about what we gonna face by d end of d day.
Then at sharp 9 A.M. a seminar (pre placement talk) was conducted, where the panel who came for the recruitment gave us the brief intro about the organization and told us that paper will be of 2 hrs and will contain 4 sections viz. Verbal, Quantitative Analysis, Technical section and Logical Reasoning.
The written exam started at 10 AM approx and went till 12:10 PM with a break of around 3 minutes after every section. After we finished our written we were asked to gather in the seminar hall at 2:30 PM to know the result of this round.
Coming to the pattern of paper, it was quite different from what we had seen in various websites. The level of d paper was quite good and it was almost like the Nascom test that is expected to go mandatory from next year onwards.
First the rules, there was no negative marking and one has to attempt d question that appeared on d screen before moving to the next one and there was no facility to skip a question and we cant come back to a question that has been submitted, so I felt dat was harsh on students. The first three sections had 25 questions each and d last had 24 questions, in all there were 99 questions. All of them being multiple choice questions.
In the first section i.e. verbal, contained questions like find out grammatical errors, synonyms and antonyms and also it contained two reading comprehensions.
In the second section, the quantitative analysis d paper was quite easy. There were different sets for everyone with random questions bt what I saw in my part was dat probability n permutation has got d highest weightage.
Coming to third and d most important part i.e. technical section. It had questions from all the major subjects ranging from C, C++, data structure and dbms. Though data structure was d toughest of all and there were questions where complexity of questions were to b evaluated….one example for this I remember is….there was one question to evaluate complexity of product of two diagonal matrix. Overall the section was not that tough but a good one which emphasized more on ur logics.
Then came the logical reasoning section which against all odds was d toughest section in written and questions were quite good and u somehow feel that 35 mins for 24 questions were not enough.
When d result time arrived, d names were called who were supposed to be ready for interview round where HR and technical rounds were merged into one. Out of 150 students who appeared for written only 65 managed to go through the first hurdle. I was one of the lucky students.
Coming to interview round, there were 5 such interview going parallely in different rooms and it was a one-to-one affair between the HR and the student.
Coming to my interview, it started along well and d person who had taken my interview was very polite. He asked me these questions.
1. Indtroduce yourself.
2. What are your hobbies.
3. Tell me about your family.
After this it was all a technical affair. He asked me if I know java, I said yes. Then asked same about OOPs and DBMS and again I said yes and he jotted them down on his evaluation sheet. Questions dat were asked are:
4. Explain virtual function and static method in C++.
5. Write a program for credit, debit and billing for grocery shop.
6. Explain normalization.
7. Then gave few simple sql queries like insert,update and aggregate queries.
8. Then a result set for a table was given to me and a nested query for d same was asked to write.
This was end of d interview, thankfully I was able to answer all of them. I was d last candidate to enter and the result was announced 20 minutes after I left d room.
Out of the 65 shortlisted students, only 31 could make it eventually. By god's grace, I was one of them and was handed the offered letter by HR team itself.
I hope all that I shared above could help you in your preparation. Be confident and give your best.
This is Tanay Mukherjee signing off .wish u all the good luck…!!
