d. Section D : Technical Ability (40 questions time 40 min.)
The question were based on the C and Data Structures.
The questions of C are just ok.. ALL YOU NEED IS TO GET THROUGH.. THE TEST YOUR C SKILLS..
The Data Structure questions are bit tough.. now a days everybody is asking the questions from the trees and Graphs.
I found about 7-9 questions directly from the graph.
For this all you need the core concepts.. and get through MARK ALLEN WIESS, R. S. SALARIA.
e.Section E : Reading Ability (10 questions time 15 mins.)
The first 5 mins. Were given for the passage reading.
Then after that they will take the passage from you then.. the questions depending upon that passage was given.. And you need to solve those questions.
The passage was based something upon the.. Pentium and Williamatte processors and something.. that you have studied in the time sharing..
Very easy.. lots of figures and formulas were there (Key Point: You wrote all the main points in the Rough sheet provided by them attached in the answer sheet)
Key Points Take Care for these : They will give lots of instructions.. during the examination.. carefully listen the instruction.. I know it's a bit disturbing but its important. And they will also provide you the Virtusa id.. which you will get when they will come up with the attendance sheet. Take care for this (too much important). Don't talk after finishing of the exam until they will take back your question papers.
2. Technical Interview
They will ask you the basic questions it was a very easy one.. be careful with your project. They'll screw you up in your project. If your keypoints are Data Structures, DBMS and Java then keep ready for any type of questions.
3. HR Interview
Just for the formality.
