Wat I felt with this test was it was better to go thro all the 100 ques, cos some easy ones were there at the last. If U think U can certainly solve a problem but its time consuming just leave it and proceed to the next one. Some of the ques were very easy, even U no need to use pen and paper.

Verbal

Find the Wrongly Spelt word

Synonym

Antonym

Fill in the blanks

Aptitude (purely mathematical)

- Better have a look at the previous 1998 qn paper, from that we got many questions.

- strong analytical geometric and mensurational skills needed.

Computer Awareness

- Simply like find odd man out and 10 qns regarding 2 pseudocodes given

Time Constraint was the big thing, u cannot complete the paper if u solve all the qns, its not needed also, they're just seeing the relative mark, in our college from 150 , 29 were shortlisted for GD and from it 12 were shortlisted for Interview, i missed out in GD.

Topics were War on Iraq, Leaders Born or Made

Try to assess ur group in GD, if u think its of to be an debating group, pls don't follow GD rules, and create ur oppurtunities for speaking as raising ur tone, intervening the conversation going on, 'its pretty sure that u'll be going off the GD rules, but it was the case in our group", i followed GD rules and i missed it out.

Walk/Swim thro Coding

40. Input a,b

s=0;

c=a;

{

s=s+c;

d=d-1;

}

Print s

for given values of a,b find the output

5questions for different values of a,b

41. Input a,b

Tips

1. Do the coding first and you are out - They are time consuming - Save the worst for last

2. Be choosy - take the easy (questions) first - So scan scan scan

3. best path in hexaware tree

language ---->

odd man out ---->

computer awareness ---->

easy sums ----->

difficult sums---->

coding

do this or find the path to your home.

4.SPEED kills but also wins. Put your brain in 5th gear

5.Blind goose guess - mark a or e - they are more probable

6. Write your q paper code proper or your are a man overboard

7. There is minimum no of q to be attempted(so they didnt say explicitly) and no negative marking. So be generous!waste your ink! cross off for all questions

8. They will ask u in the pep talk in GD waht is the first or last question or your code.

So watch out all those DANGER-PAST-QUESTIONS-FORGOT type fellows

Group Discussion

1. No GD only shout!!! - Our LOk Sabha Style

2. Shout at top of your voice and shout some meaningful points

3. Please train ur vocal chords! Drink our good pure(pun intended) water before GD

4. IF u cant then carry a loudspeaker

5. 10 per group max 3 groups

6. final interview they select 3 from each group

8. If your group is silent Please follow GD rules.

9. 30 minutes of shouting(3min-choose the topic, 2min-prepare,20min-shout)

10. They might also give you a topic.
