194 students cleard written of abt 250 students, & finally selected 96
students( 5 m.tech, 6 mca, rests b.tech)
though I was sure, not to cross the written(bcoz verbal sec. was not done
confidently & lower cutoff for the 3rd sec. though there was no sec. cut
off) but I did.
Written test was arranged by merit track & there waz one qustn set.
there was two passages one of them was about air pollution by sashi tharoor
some qstns of rearranging sentences.

colored cube problem

some figure matching questions(10 qstns)..
I: walked thru the intv room.
Intvr: gestured to sit down
I: good afternoon sir.
Intv: good afternun. sit down.
I: thnk u sir.
Intv: where r u from?
I: i am from Barrackpore
intv: then why r u at durgapur?
i: for my m.tech study.
intv: o, u r m. tech! then in the mean time he looked into my filled up book
in prescribed format.
[ the book was filled up roughly not so seriously, bcoz we had to fill up
the same with in few mnts before the written exam.
Just like this way:
Weakness: easily believed other person

The qualities u have to be a successful IT professional:
Having fixed goal
After viewing the book the intvr. said ok & didn't ask any
question frm them (thnk GOD)]
