This section a simple one containing a comprehension passage which was very easy, some grammer questions, the vocab words were a bit difficult though. They were to be used in sentences.(CAT TYPE) Others were quite simple.
For me HR was cool. The guy was very friendly. They just want to see your communication skills as told by their associate manager at the end of the selection procedure, who told us that 7 students were rejected because of their poor communication Skills. General questions were asked like :
Why Software?(if u are from branch other than Comp)
They also asked GK questions, business news etc.
And some puzzles as well.
If possible, try to emphasize on leadership skills as ur qualities and keep ready some examples from past when u were a good leader.
So that was all. Hope this helps you all. If anyone has some more queries feel free to leave ur comments here. I shall be glad to help.
