CTS Interview Experience - Kolkata(BP Poddar). September 18, 2014
I was a regular reader of the candidate experiences by the various candidates and thanks to them too who posted here :).
Apti was on 18th September.
My Interview experience was a bit different from the others.(In the Technical part).
362 people were eligible in our collage out of these 190 candidates cleared the apti round.
Now coming to my first round apti.
As usual it had 3 parts Logical, Quantative and English(Verbal Ability).
1. Logical: I had prepared it from RS Aggarwal book and a few topics such as cubes, cuboid dice from IndiaBix(although these were not there in my test).
From my experience you have to concentrate specially on these few chapters very nicely from the RS Aggarwal Verbal Reasoning book.
a)Data Sufficiency b)Coding Decoding c)Blood Relations d)Logic(Syllogism) e)Series f)direction test.
Rest of the chapters you can just see the rules to do them but you must practice regularly the above written chapters.
2. Quantative Aptitude:
The score of this part will depend upon your practice and the concepts that you have. I have practiced from RS Aggarwal book. I had arun sharma but I had not practiced.
from it(The problems r very critical ;) ) Practice More and More for this part.
This part is very easy for the English lovers(basically English Medium Background Students) and very hard for those who are weak in English. I had memorized a few synonyms and ants from RS Aggarwal bt not a single question(synonyms/antonyms) were common to me during test. And as m a CBSE board student(I have given 10th).
After that Diploma so It was easy for me excluding the passages.
This was all about the apti round.
Now coming to my Technical Interview Round.
My interview questions were a bit different from the others
I gave Cloud Computing, DBMS as my fav.subjects and C and Java as my fav. languages but
NOT A SINGLE QUESTION WAS ASKED TO ME FROM CLOUD COMPUTING AND JAVA.
Another thing is that I prepared my Project very well. I was in a position that what ever question he would have asked me I could have easily answered them.
But it was my Bad luck not a single question was asked to me from project too.
Now I'm writing the direct questions that was asked to me during my Technical Round.
Me: Good afternoon sir
He: Good afternoon Sit down.
He: Tell me about your self?
He: So you came here for B Tech through entrance? (as I was a lateral entry).
Me: Yes sir through JELET(joint entrance for lateral entry).
He: What was your rank?
He: You were a NCC cadet right? [as i have given NCC as extra curricular activity in my CV]
Me: Yes Sir.
[now started showing his real face :D]
He: Ok subha can you write a pseudo-code to fetch a data from a circular linked list?
[as I have not prepared DS well so I was not able to do that I read only few basics of DS before the interview day].
Me: Drawn only the diagram of circular linked list in the paper.
He: Ok Tell me what is Paging?
[I was not prepared with OS also but told him what ever I remembered]
He: [not happy]What is segmentation?
Me: [Same told him some thing some thing :) ].
He: Which is the best searching algo?
Me: I told Binary Search in DBMS view.
He: Which is the best Sorting algo?
Me: Merge Sort.
Me: I showed him its running time is less.
[now he came out of his favorite subject ds and moved towards my favorite subject :D].
He: What is Union?
Me:[As I was very nicely prepared with DBMS so answered and explained him clearly].
He: What is Intersection?
Me: Told clearly.
He: What is BCNF?
Me: told him clearly and confidently.
He: [now a bit impressed :)] Ok subha what are the training you have done
He: Ok subha thank you.
Me: Thank you sir.
For technical I would suggest you to please go through all the algos of Data Structure because DS(along with DBMS) is the favourite subject of all the interviewers.
Apart from that you prepare c,c++(If you can) and Java and the core subjects like OS, N/w. You can go through the basics of software engineering(SDLC specially) and,
Cloud Computing(as its the latest trend in IT industry).
Now HR questions were exactly the same as Indiabix questions(The interview HR questions that I/you used to read).
The questions are,
Tell me about yourself?
Tell me about your family?
Will you be able to work on different technologies?
Any problem of relocation?
These all were my Interview HR questions .
A total of 112(approx) got selected and fortunately I am one of them.
Thanks to Indiabix once again. And all of you go on practicing hard.
Thanks for reading :).
