Hi Friends

This is Venkatesh. I have attended the test of Patni on November 10th of this month which was conducted in St Joseph Engg College (OFF CAMPUS). I do know the exact head count but it might be 450+. The recruitment process is so simple and transparent

The selection procedure consists of 3 stages:
First corporate presentation Followed by
1. Aptitude
2. GD
3. Tech+HR

1) 15 questions Verbal
2) 15 questions Analytical Reasoning.
3) 30 questions Quantitative Aptitude.
Time 1hr 10min
  Total questions =60

PACKAGE: B.E / B.TECH -- 3LACS (2007 batch) as per slide presentation

It is damn easy guys if u are fluent in English then no preparation needed. Else see this article prepositions etc. Then Reading comprehension- this is the very time consuming part. you read the whole paragraph when u try to ans the q\'s I am sure ans is not in the passage but it is a general one. so don\'t waste time there

Analaytical reasoning: Please work out
blood relations
seating arrangement etc
please read RS agarwal verbal and non verbal reasoning

Quantitative Aptitude: The majority is from
Profit and loss
Alligation mixtures
Ratio and proportion

If you learn this surely u can crack the test. Hopefully there is some sectional cut off I think so attempt in all areas
Do not concentrate on one part alone
Have eye on ur watch time will run like anything


They conducted first round around 11 o clock and gave one hour ten minutes
After that they asked to finish lunch and come
Man never miss St joseph food especially Non veg had a great lunch
Forgetting the campus tension and around 2 30 the results were announced

From first round they shortlisted 210

7 batches 10 per batch
Similarly two more groups were there

GD topics
Orkut should be banned or not
China a threat to India
India in 2020

My topic was India on 2020
In my topic all were shouting but our HR mam was so nice she gave opportunity for all. My first point itself was wrong I was deviating away from the topic. Tht mam said frankly and asked to talk abt the topic so I never left my confidence and spoke and finally they asked to summarize the topic each of us and finally asked everyone to write abt Patni luckily a day before I have prepared the company profile
Else no problem listen to the slide what they shw its more than enough
Finally from our team 5 got shortlisted and I am one of them
But there was also a case in which 9 people got selected out of 10. So don\'t think they will filter do ur job rest will happen automatically

We waited for one and half hour they gave one application form and asked to fill details. I was very happy as though I got the job but any way waiting for the HR round finally HR called. also my HR is so nice he is very quite and asked
Tell abt urself
Ur project
Then asked to say a fav subject
I choosed oops
He then asked
Virtual function
Constructor destructor
Software engg also he asked (waterfall life cycle model)
Then DBMS wat is normalization did not answer
Then finally asked what is current trend going in IT industry (I do know but I blabbered he found that I do know so he stopped)
And said the results will be published at the end of the day so wait he said

After 2 hours at 8 30 the results were published and I am one among them. I am Patni ite. I got many new friends there we shared many fruitful issues even if didn\'t get selected don\'t get vexed u will get good friends new prespective of ideas.

Guys also be prepared for technical also I thought they will conduct only one round but Patni is fast they conducted every round within a single day and announced the result within same day. So prepare for all rounds.

Guys this is my 58th interview and finally I have won the battle. I have consequently failed for 57 times but never let my hope. So always prepare urself for the next interview never let ur confidence my best wishes to meet u in Patni.

Keep this in mind

Success should not go to ur head
Failure should not go to your heart
