Pattern:(All are elimination Rounds)

1) Screening Test --> out of 750, 450 been selected for Aptitude.

2) Aptitude Test --> 50 questions in 1 hour.

3) Technical --> 50 question on Java/Jsp in 40 min. JSP was bit easy.

4) GD --> It was bit easy, was on general topic.

5) Tech/Per Interview --> All about Your Project which u mentioned in ur resume and on JSP.

Test Pattern:

1. Apptitude:

refer any good book.

many problems on percentage and profit/loss from rs agarwal.

2. technical:there are 2 options VB AND ASP or java AND JSP

i took vb/asp.

vb:

q related to actvex dll/exe.-- go into details

multithreading.

ado

asp:

objects in asp.

get/post method

thoers

asp was simple but vb was a bit tricky.

(1) Apptitude Section

there is 3 subsection under it...arithmatic,general/analytical reasoning,english.

time factor is very important to get thru each section has 35 questions each

n this is a 1hr test n 20 minutes r allotted to each section well if u want u may give extra

time to anyother section but believe it s not correct way each section has its own cut off.

so u will have to go through all section with equal consideration.

english is simple ..some error detection sentences,fill in the blank. but major

part of english section consist of eng comprehension.there were abt 18-20 question

of comprehension out of 35 qus of eng.

reasoning is very simple but rememeber one thing as it is simple u may like

to do all questions from that section..DONT DO IT.

give extra time to english n arithmatic section,comprehension takes lot

of time but REMEMBER to get thru these 2 comprehensions r must.

Arithmatic is also easy n my suggession is that dont attempt data interpretation question

as they take lot of time.

n important thing is that there is 1/4th negative marking in all the section.

so be carefull.

in my openion if u attempt 20-25 from each section CORRECTLY then

surely u will be able to get thru.

(2)G.D

its depent on the attitude of candidates.if u r able to make healthy

atmosphere in the group having convinced upon one common solution of

the topic the 7-8 will be able to get thru out of a batch of 12. otherwise

it may be possibe that only 1-2 or none candidate is selected.

dont deviate from the topic say some thing specific to the topic n try to not

take the topic in antother direction.if n speak only 2-3 good sentences logically related to

the topic ,its OK rather thatn speaking anything illogical n far from fact.

ATTITUDE is very important ...try to not to be AGGRESSIVE but not to be submissive.

n check who is not speaking ..promote that person to speak anything by drawing

the attention...by that u will be able to show your team management skill..

but for that u should have spoken something before this.

n yes TRY TO BE THE FIRST PERSON IN THE GROUP TO SPEAK

that is MAJOR key to success.but its not possible always so speak 2-3 logical

sentences with good communication skills.n conclude the topic.

n one more thing is that....

u may put ur suggession to the panel......

the we can break down the session like...

1 fact n definition

2 problems associated with the fact

3 solutions to the problems

4 conclusion

so the we can give equal consideration to all aspects to the topic.

n if u r able to impose THIS....ur chance to get thru will BRIGHT.

(3) TECHNICAL test

tech/test consist of various potion like

JAVA

JAVA/JSP

VB/ASP

C++

there r basic qustions in that but do it carefully question may be confusing..

u may confuse in the options.....

in java were 25 question.

10 question were of fill in the blanks...NO OPTIONS.

but there were very basic like Synchronised keyword,Runnable interface,

String Buffer Class,Mutable Class,MouseListener Interface etc.

(4)Tech/Personal interview

its combination of both tech/personal.

be prepare with your final year project. go thru it thoroughly

n prepare with basic question.

u may asked to tell them ur AREA OF INTEREST. so prepare 2-3 subjects thorighly (basics)

n some typical HR question ur hobby..but REMEMBER one thing if u say

ur hobby is cricket so u should have enough knowledge of cricket..n current

score of match (if india is playing at the time anywhere)

so this is all about PATNI COMPUTER SYSTEM.

they may have test in a week or two.

Here is the question pattern for PCS
