CTS Interview Experience - Rajkot - Ahmedabad, April 26th, 2014
I'm from 2013 batch. I received aptitude test hall ticket from amcat on 21st March. My exam was scheduled at Marwari Engineering College, Rajkot on 23rd March. The test was an adaptive test, which means the questions keep getting tougher on right answer and easier on wrong answer. The trick to clear the exam is time management.
I received hall ticket for the interview round on the same day from amcat. Interview was scheduled at LD Engineering College, Ahmedabad on 26th March at 9am. I guess around 120 students made it to the interview round from 500+ students.
Interview was divided into two rounds:
Students who could clear Technical round were called for HR round.
Firstly, all students were gathered in a big class room where everybody submitted their resume along with a passport size photo. Later, we were randomly divided into groups of 4 to 6 students and were asked to wait outside respective panel rooms till the technical interview started. I guess there were around 15 to 16 panels. i.e. 15 to 16 interviewer. It was one on one interview. I was interviewed at around 12:30.
Interviewer asked my questions from topics which I mentioned in my resume. I had mentioned area of interest as OOPS concept. So he fired most of the questions from OOPS only.
* He asked me differences between PL and OOPS.
* Principles of OOPS.
* About encapsulation and it's importance.
* About accessors.
* About virtual method.
* About Inheritance.
* Difference between. Net and Java.
* About Language independence.
* How does. Net run programs on different languages?
* Why work for an IT company? (I'm from ECE).
* What is difference between IT and software companies?
* Can companies like Cognizant, TCS & Wipro be compared with companies like Microsoft, Google & Apple?
* About my short & long term goals.
* About my final year project in college.
I proactively answered all the questions with examples and the interviewer seemed impressed with that. My technical round went on for around 15 minutes and I was confident enough about clearing it. 5 minutes later I was told to go for my HR interview round.
HR round didn't feel like an interview round. It went on only for 2 minutes. I was last one to be interviewed for the HR round.
* Asked to say about myself.
* Submitted photocopies of all marksheets.
* Asked if I was comfortable with relocation.
Thats it! No other question from HR. I was told I would receive an email with in one week if selected.
On 3rd april, Cognizant emailed me my offer letter. :).
All the best to all the students who will be appearing for CTS interviews!
