Well, this time we had no rule of Topper-Shopper and so each and everyone had to sit for the initial Aptitude Round.
We were to report to college by 8.00 AM. Around 450 students sat for the online exam conducted by AMCAT.
The exam started at 9:00 AM. It was a one hour test.
It comprised of three sections:
- Verbal (25 questions, 25 minutes) ,
- Quantitative (16 questions, 16 minutes),
- Logical (14 questions, 14 minutes).
Questions on Verbal included synonyms, antonyms, sentence correction, passages, fill up the blanks etc.
While Quant included Simple Interest, Profit and Loss, Percentage, Surds, Indices, Logarithms, Time and Work, Speed and Distance, Ratio and Proportion.
For all the sections one can get to do everything if one prepares the two books of RS Aggarwal well alongside IndiaBix.
I was of about doing 45 questions right out of 55 because I couldn't complete the Quant part. I was very afraid. Soon the results were declared in Sumantra Ghosal Hall.
The first list contained the Top 60 names where I was placed 4th. Then I was sent for profiling. Make sure to take a photocopy of all testimonials. CTS took one photo and all the Xerox copies and sent me for the Technical Round. The round started within another 10 min.
The person was a 30 year old man of medium height. I entered the room. Mine was in CSE Lab 3. As I entered I wished him Good Morning and he replied and asked me to sit.
First he asked me to introduce myself.
Then he asked me what my favourite subject is. I answered Power System.
He didn't ask a single question from there after that. Then he asked being an Electrical engineer, why will I join CTS. Then he asked me to make him understand how a ceiling fan works. I explained it with necessary circuit and phasor diagrams. Then he asked me whether I know C programming well or not. I said Yes.
He gave me pattern to print using for loops. It took some time time to develop the logic and soon I started writing and he interrupted and said well Whether I know programming in microprocessor or not. I said Yes.
He asked me to write a program to multiply two nos. Using loop addition. I wrote. He tried to confuse me many a times. I was confident.
Then he asked me what is accumulator. What flags are. How many flags there are. And the hierarchy of different kinds of computer memory speed of execution wise. I said.
He said fine and asked me whether I have any question to ask him. I said Yes and asked him a question. Then he explained me the answer and said you may leave now. I stood up and the person lend his hand for a handshake. I shook and said Thank You sir and came out.
The interview took almost 25 min. Then after the Technical Round results were out and I got selected for the HR.
The HR round was for 10 min.
It was a young female HR opposite to me. She asked me about my family, their professions, My location etc. She asked me about my strengths. Going through the marksheet she said your marks are good but if you do anything else. I said about the association with Xplorica, fest, Student reporter and all.
Then she said how am I preparing for joining a IT company. I said I know all these and also have done project based training on JAVA. She asked me to show the certificate. I showed her. She said if I am given a different project to work on will I have any problem. I said not at all.
Then she asked if I had problems with relocation and shifts. I said no. She asked about my hobbies. Then she gave a page to sign. I signed. At the end she said, "it was nice talking to you. I said thank You mam and came out.
On 20th results were out and I was one among the 112 who got selected finally.
I would like say that always be cool and confident however tough the situation may be and have a smiling face throughout the day.
