WIPRO(Western India Products Limited) Interview Pattern - Bangalore, July 2017
Thus I feel obliged to share my experience with you all. I sincerely hope that my campus placement experience with WIPRO helps you all in some way at least.
Few Words About Wipro:
Although, WIPRO is a world re-knowned organization. Here are a few things about the company:-
WIPRO Ltd (Western India Products Limited) is an Indian, global information technology, consulting and outsourcing company with services spanning financial services, retail, transportation, manufacturing, healthcare services, energy and utilities, technology, telecom and media. It is spread across 6 continents and helps its customers do business better by leveraging their industry-wide experience.
For your information, WIPRO conducts recruitment both on campus and off campus to select new candidates. They focus is on soft skills of a candidate just as much as on their technical knowledge.
The selection process of WIPRO is as mentioned below:-
The selection process of the company consists of 3 rounds. These rounds are as follows:
The Eligibility for WIPRO campus selection ( for my institute ) is as follows:- (Although this may vary from college to college, it usually stays the same)

- 12th Standard : 60%.
- Graduation : 65% [ B.E. / B.Tech. ].
- Post-Graduation : 65% [ M.Sc. (5 Years Integrated Course) OR M.E./ M. Tech ].

Should have completed all exit formalities in the previous organization. (wherever applicable)
==> 1st round (Written Exam):
The Wipro test pattern contains the following sections:
Time Limit (in minutes).
Questions are simple but time management is the key. It is easy to solve these questions, but a time limit is what poses a challenge.
Online round is similar to Oliveboard test pattern, it would be very helpful for you if you take those mock tests. Our college advised taking these mocks before campus recruitment and that helped me a lot, though I scored less on these mocks, but it gave the proper idea of what my strong and weak areas were.
The questions were asked from the following sections (I am also mentioning the important topics for your reference).
Verbal Section : Consists of reading comprehension passages, fill in the blanks, synonyms, antonyms, paragraph completion, error based, sentence completion , etc.
Quantitative Ability Section : Syllabus comprises of algebra, time & work, time, speed & distance, arithmetic, percentages, profit & loss, geometry, etc.
Reasoning Section : Consists of questions based on puzzles, blood relations, statements & arguments, coding decoding, data interpretation, data sufficiency, number series etc.
Technical Section : Consists of questions from subjects like data structures, operating systems, C & C++ programming, JAVA, LINUX, Optical Fibre, DBMS, Microprocessors, etc. The difficulty level of this section is comparatively higher.
Essay Writing Section : is based on any current ( or otherwise ) situation or scenario which contains minimum 250 word limit. It is also a computer based test.
I am writing this quite sometime after my placement, so I cannot furnish the details of exactly what questions were asked. But I can assure you all that it was from the above mentioned topics.
==> 2nd round (Technical Interview):
I was extremely nervous about my Technical interview as I was a non-CS student and the WIPRO\'s rejection rate ( at least from what I had heard) was very high in those interviews. I had based my technical preparation on what my seniors had told me and tried to learn as many things as I could from geeksforgeeks. Also, I would like to mention here, that giving tests is very important to enhance your knowledge even for an interview. An Interviewer can ask you anything, from writing a code to explaining the simplest of all topics / concepts. I must mention here, that many of the questions that I was asked, were similar to what I had studied from Oliveboard tests. Hence, I think It would be useful for you all as well.
Thankfully my interviewer was a very nice, polite and humble person. He asked me puzzles, some conceptual questions and a few codes. I was advised by my seniors to NOT keep quiet in an interview. Always adopt the "thinking out loud" approach. That helped me lot in the interview round. As, some questions that were asked were difficult and I could not reach the correct answer, however I never kept quiet and kept talking about how I would approach or attempt to solve. In fact in one question, the interviewer himself guided me to the correct answer as he could see that I was sincerely trying to resolve the problem and that boosted my confidence. Hence, I would recommend this to everyone.
Just to tell you guys, I was selected for the HR ROUND
==> 3rd Round (HR Interview):
I was in high spirits after I had cleared, what I thought to be the biggest hurdle in my way. I was all pumped up for the HR interview and was quite confident. Apparently, it showed on my face and inspired a remark from my HR interviewer as well.
He said, " You seem jubilant!"
My reply: Yes Sir. I feel happy to have cleared the technical interviews.
So, this is how my HR interview started. The interviewer probed a little more about what made me so happy and all. I chose to answer all his questions with the utmost honesty, politeness and confidence. Guess, this worked wonders for me and I was selected for WIPRO!
Last but not the least, what I want you all to take away from my experience is that one should be confident and you should realise that you, yourself steer an interview. Think of it more as a conversation than as a do or die situation. It will definitely make you more confident and help you do better.
All the best to you all !
