WIPRO Interview Experience - APIIIT, RK VALLEY, JANUARY 11 2015
Because it would help many students in their preparation as it did in my case.
First of all wipro selection process contains four rounds. Here I would present in detail about each round of selection process.
1. Written test.
2. Group discussion.
3. TR interview.
4. HR interview.
Note:: generally wipro conducts group discussion first and then written test, but in our case it conducted written test first and then the Group discussion was held. And remember all rounds are elimination rounds.
The written test was held on 24th december 2014 at RK VALLEY CAMPUS.
1. Written test:
Written test consists of 4 sections. The written test was conducted by amcat. Each section had TIME LIMIT and there was NO NEGATIVE MARKING. And also You should Answer some minimum number of questions (whether right or wrong but you should attempt) in each section, otherwise your paper is not validated.
1. English verbal section (21 questions and 21 minutes) (should answer at-least 15 questions whether right or wrong).
2. Quantitative aptitude (16 questions and 16 minutes) (should answer at-least 10 questions).
3. Logical reasoning (14 questions and 14 minutes) (should answer at-least 10 questions).
4. Technical section (14 questions and 17 minutes) (should answer at-least 5 questions).
Note:: the minimum number of questions to answer in each section is not the cut-off of that section. Remember there would be individual cut-off for each section.
1. English section consists of correction of sentences, synonyms, antonyms, sentence completion, fill in the blanks with correct word,
And there were two long passages in the end (4 questions from each passage i.e, last 8 questions from passages only).
2. For the quant section be through with all R. S. Aggarwal topics. That is more than enough. But the main point to remember in this section is TIME MANAGEMENT.
You should be really fast in this section, otherwise time will not be sufficient and that too you have to answer minimum 10 questions.
3. This section is quite easy for everyone, just prepare in R S. Aggarwal topics like coding-decoding, syllogisms, number series, seating arrangement, Blood relations, direction sense test, odd one out etc. ,
4. Technical section is also easy. You should mainly focus on data structure topics like sorting algorithms and their time complexities, heaps, stacks, queues, Tree traversal, and some pseudo codes were given in C language which were very easy and you can solve them there itself. The cut-off for this Section is generally low.
Note:: The written test result mainly depends on how you perform in quantitative and english section, the remaining sections can be done by everyone,
So please do concentrate on those two sections.
2. Group discussion:
The students who got selected in written test were allowed for group discussion. We were divided into groups. Each group consisted of 15 students.
The group discussion is:
Very easy for those who can speak english fluently. But don't worry the hr's were very kind and encouraging, they make you feel comfortable.
If you open your mouth and speak something related to the topic voluntarily, you will get selected.
In our group 9 out of 15 got selected. In some groups all 15 got selected. In all groups, minimum 6 people got selected.
Some topics asked in the gd in our drive are::
Impact of western culture on Indians.
Will swacch bharat campaign succeed?
Indian education and foreign education.
Internet is boon or bane?
After group discussion, You have to fill up the wipro form given by hr's. And also you have to write an essay about the given topic in 10 minutes. The essay round is Not for elimination, but the essay will be checked by the hr in hr interview, So take care that you don't make any spelling and grammatical mistakes in it.
They will collect your resume, mark sheets (xerox copies) , essay paper and wipro application form and pin them together and send it to TR team.
Our Interview was held at Nuzvid campus on 11th january 2015.
