CTS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 04 MAR 2007 - KOLKATA
I appeared 4 d CTS campus selection on 4th March. The procedure was divided in 3 steps. On 4th March d aptitude test was conducted. It had 3 sections :-
1) ENGLISH : Ths section consisted of 2 very long comprehension passages, find out correct sentence, find out incorrect sentence, arrange sentences 2 form a coherent paragraph. There were no synonyms-antonyms. The paper was lengthy but not dat difficult if u hav a good command over English, but don't attempt d passages 1st, they will consume a lot of ur time.
2) QUANT : Ths section was really easy. D qstns were mainly 4m venn diagrams, time & distance, time & work, ratio-proportion, cubes etc. Do prepare ths chapters 4m R.S.Aggarwal; dat is more than enough.
3) REASONING : Ths section was again somewhat easy. It had logical reasoning & figure-oriented qstns 4m R.S.Aggarwal; at d end of ths paper dere was a puzzle which was really tough 4 me; I applied guess-work dere.
At about 12 at night d result of apti was declared in d website. I was relieved 2 c my name dere. D next day was d tech & hr interview. Mine was at 3 pm; but I had 2 wait till 8 pm 2 giv d interview. My interview lasted 4 only 4-5 mins. D interviewer was a man. Here is d exerpt :-
