ACCENTURE PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 29 JUN 2007 - VISAKHAPATNAM
My name is Avinash from Chaitanya Engg College. I attended the pool campus conducted by Accenture at Chaitanya Engg College. The selection process lasted for three days. Around 1500 students attended the selection process and i thank GOD because im one of them. The selection process consists of FOUR rounds.
The rounds are:-
The written is for 60 min.
1. Verbal Section(1-20)
3. Analytical Section(41-55) and
The verbal section is very very easy. It consists of 20 questions. The first 10 ques consists of articles, prepositions, meaning of the underlined word in the given sentence and two passages of 5 ques each. These passages medium in size. U can do these passages if u manage ur time in other sections. Answer these passages at the last. keep in mind, the cutoff is very high. So to sustain u have attempt for passages otherwise u should be perfect in other sections. U should be perfect in atleast 40 of ur attempted ques.
It consists of 20 ques. This section is also easy. We have given problems on venn diagrams (around 6 ques), blood relations(1 ques), series completion(2 ques), Data sufficiency(5 ques) and 5 ques on the problems like " 1 is represented as '$' and 0 is represented as '*' then 222 is represented as?"( just represent 222 in binary form and replace 1 as '$' and 0 as'*' , this is easy but a little time consuming, u can do 3 out of 5 within 1.3 minutes, so do it as fast as possible) .
This is the most easiest part of the whole test paper. it consists of 3 sections. The 1st section consists of 5 ques like
Given directions : A: all the three are alike
B: first and second are alike
C:first and third are alike
D All the three are different
question: 157.2344352345 157.2343245345 157.2344352345 ans: C
question : aabbcddeff aabbcdefff aabbcdddef ans: D
And questions like if + stands for -,* stands for /, - stands for + ,/ stands for * then solve 5*6/5-20*20. Around 5 questions were given on this.Very easy but time taking. U can easily answer 3 ques easily but the remaining 2 ques are alittle bit time consuming. Just apply the bodmas rule for these type of problems.
The next 5 ques consists of decision making. Just prepare decision making problems from R.S.Agarwal (verbal nonverbal and reasoning). its easy. we have given 55 min to solve the above and another 5 min to write an eassy. The topic is "Career Growth in IT Industry".
Remember that the test consists of 2 sets. The test was cunducted for two batches. In the 1st batch around 113 are selected out of 800 candidates and in the 2nd batch around 225 are selected out of 700 candidates. Im in the 2nd batch.
It is the main elimination round. In our batch around 14 people resided and only 4 members were selected. In other batch around 11 were selected out of 13 people. If u perform well u will definetly be selected. just perform well and raise good points while u r speaking. Don't make unnecessary arguments in G.D, it will lead to rejection. My topic is "Effect of advertaisments on INDIANS".
It is very easy round, almost everybody who has good communication skills will be selected. It lasted around 15 min for me. Some of my H.R ques are
1. Tell me abt urself.
2. Why Accenture .
3. Wht do u know abt Accenture.

11. Why have u choosen E.C.E instead of C.S.E
12. Which is the best branch in ur opinion
He is just looking for the confidence in u.
This is very tough round. It lasted around 45 min for me. many of them were rejected in this round. U should be perfect in ur technical to qualify in this round. If the h.r u r facing is not related to ur branch then he is just asking the general h.r ques. It all depends on ur luck.
But i got my h.r from my related branch i.e; E.C.E. and i was asked very tough ques. My tech int is a combination of both h.r and technical. Some of my ques are:-
1. Tell me abt ur self.
