IBM PAPER ON 2nd JUNE
Hai friends I am SATISH BODDU
I have been selected for IBM IN CAMPUS PLACEMENT conducted at BITS, Warangal ,A.P ON 2nd JUNE 2007. A total of 1406 students appeared 4 written test and around 220 were selected in written.
We were asked to write the ESSAY along with written test .Written test was started around 10.30 AM and ended around 12 noon which comprised of ESSAY also. Results were anounced around 3.00 PM.
GDs for 220 students started around 3.30 PM and ended at 5 PM I think so. Results were anounced at 6 PM and 164 were selected in GD.
They held INTERVIEWS on next day .There were no results after tech interview many of the students were directly forwarded to HR and some of them were rejected and they told them this directly. All the interviews were completed at 4PM . They announced the final results and 79 students were selected atlast.
WITH GODS GRACE I WAS ONE OF THEM. Let me explain u each phase in detail
A. VERBAL ABILITY(10marks):
1,.2) ques on prepositions

5) _ clown of that circus became famous for his antics.(article)
6-10 a RC on pollengrains, reproduction in flowers thru bees
something like that
This was the easiest RC I have ever seen in any companys written test.
It consisted of 25 questions believe there was not even a single question from objective arthmetic(ie, trains, boats&streams ,time &distance etc .Please dont waste ur time in preparing 4 arthmetic)
Almost all the ques r 4m VERBAL REASONING only (RS AGGARWAL is more than enough)
1-5) out of 600 students 536 have credit cards (AMEX,MASTER ,VISA CARDS)
.(a bit hard try this section with inter 1st year maths(A.P))
Draw the venn diagram with 3 circls intersecting
1)How many had MASTER card
2) How many had only MASTER card
3)How many had VISA card
4) How many had only VISA card
5) How many had AMEX card
I think difference betn 1 & 2 answers is 41 and 3 &4 is 21( have a wise guess its easy then)
Three ques on DIRECTION SENSE (easy)6 . A person starts behind is house which faces to east and walks 50m an turns left walks 100m

7. If NORTH is SOUTH-WEST then SOUTH-EAST is (ans is NORTH)

Thats it 4 written test RS AGGARWAL(VERBAL REASONING) and any elementary English Book 4 grammar all the above 2 days before exam is more than enough to crack IBM WRITTEN That is what I had and what I did.
Topic was "EXERCISE IS GOOD FOR HEALTH" We were given 15 mins just after written and asked to write in not more than 200 words
After we entered the room all the rules were changed it was not a GD but just like JAM. We were 10 in group and each of us was given 2mins to speak on the topic along with our introduction. Panel members were free with us they havent stopped any of us though we ran out of time .
They want u speak .Thats it. Our topic was "ENGINEERS SHUDNT ACCEPT JOBS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES" 8out of 10 were selected in GD from my group.
U cant distinguish tech and HR in IBM both go on same lines
For me there was a lady ,i think she was frm kerala or karnataka,she doesn't know telugu .
First of all i stood at the door waiting for call frm her, then i entered the room ,it was comp. lab .
MAM : tell me abt ur self
Then she asked me about my projects ,i explained each n every thing
Here only I scored much more marks
Then she asked me abt team management, how can i manage my team members in different situations,i was aware of this sort of questions , so prepared earliar and answered PERFECTLY.
Then she asked me some 7 questions frm my core subject(am frm MECHANICAL BRANCH).I answered correctly 6 questions .
TURBINE TYPES,HEAT TRANSFER,FLUID DYNAMICS,STRN OF MAT., etc........
Then she asked me about 1)Arrays ,2)Pointers 3)Structures
I ANSWERED CORRECTLY for 2 only...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
she laughed at my answeres , i too gave smile***
she then asked me to wait outside for HR, it took me 55min to clear this round .
She then came out of the cabin and sugested me to learn basics of computer languages, as am frm MECHANICAL.
************ HERE ONLY I SMELLED MY SUCCESS ************
Here is final round for me ,i entered the room ,where hr was sitting ,he asked me to take the seat .
I slowly sat on the chair(Normal plastic chair ).It was comfortable to sit in it .as there was AC in the room.
Then he shook hands with me and askad my name and introduced himself by telling his name his position in IBM,
I was confused for a while that ,interview is 4 me or 4 him.Like that he was so cool that i feel at home with him,at that moment .
SO REMEMBER TO BE COOL WHILE TALKING ,no one is going to beat u there ,okay.........
Then he asked me abt myself ,my projects, my innovative ideas,as i bagged STATE 2ND PRIZE FOR MY PROJECT,
Then he asked abt IBM, team management ,why software job 4 a mechanical student ,my interested areas in IBM, why IBM
............IT TOOK 1 HOUR FOR ME TO GIVE PERFECT ANSWERS TO HIM.....YOU MUST BE SPONTANEOUS
TO ANY QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!! OKAY........REMEMBER.
Then he asked me , DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING "IBM".
Firstly i hesitated to ask but he forced to ask........
So i asked like this
"WHY IBM IS INTERESTED IN TAKING GIRLS AND PHYSICALLY HANDICAPED "he then asked me to listen his words,he has given explanation to abt 30min. and then he asked me to wait out side to know the results .
I think abt 1 hr. latter results were announced and ........................................
