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