CTS Interview Pattern - Bangalore,September,2016
All the questions were moderate and was easy for the people who have solved all the questions from R. S. Aggarwal and IndiaBix.Sectional cut-off was also there. My target was to attempt 15 out of 25 question correct in verbal section, 9 out of 16 question correct in quant and 8 out of 14 questions correct in reasoning section. But I guess I ended up doing more questions correctly that day. Total 150 people were selected and I was selected too.
The second day was technical and HR round. Everybody was given a token number and were taken to the interview panel according to those numbers. I was waiting for my turn nervously. Finally, someone called my token number and I went in.
Me: Good Morning Sir.
Interviewer: Good Morning. Have a seat.
Interviewer: Tell me about yourself.
Me: I told about my educational background, areas of interest and few co-curricular activities.
Interviewer: What is the difference between unique key and primary key?
Interviewer: What is the difference between truncate and delete?
Me: Told (but was not sure).
Interviewer: Have you done any projects?
Me: Told and explained about it.
Interviewer: Asked about a real time implementation of database. To create a page where a judge can login and solve the case. What will be the tables created and other specifications in backend?
Interviewer: What is Cloud Computing?
(Few more questions on cloud computing)
Interviewer: Do you have any question for me?
(Always ask something to show that you are interested in the job.)
After waiting for 15-20 minutes, I was called for HR round.
Me: Good morning sir.
HR: Good morning. Have a seat.
HR: Tell me about yourself?
Me: (Few more things that I told in previous round)
HR: Tell me about one thing that you have done in college life because of which people hates you?
Me: (at first I was confused what should I answer but I understood later it was because of my marks)
HR: Why do you want to work in Cognizant?
HR: What did you have for breakfast?
Me: Nothing. (being honest :))
(then he asked reason and I told)
HR: Do you have any question for me?
Then I was asked to sign a paper saying that I won't complain regarding my relocation or domain. I signed on it and wished him, then left.
The results were announced later and I was selected.
From all these things I have understood that it's easy to get an offer letter from your dream companies if and only if you work hard for it and give the best shot you got. Be confident and patient. Everything you deserve will come to you eventually,and everybody deserves something that is yet to be discovered by them so just wait for it. Rest it all depends on your luck!
All the best!!
