First of all let me thank you all. I made it into Polaris Software Lab Ltd., SEEPZ, Mumbai. This Company being one amongst teh top 8 Indain IT companies , is a well-reputed Co. I got this info thru' thsi group. I am very grateful to this colorful group. Yesterday I got the job offer. Whenever i posted a request I 'd get a fair response from the group.
I'd given the All India Polaris Talent Search test on 10th of Aug at Mumbai location, and attended the Personal Inteerview on 6th Sep, and eventually I got the job ofer yesterday. Frankly speaking, I got the info from this group.
Now I am very happy to say that I'm one-step ahead in my career ladder.
The Written Test Pattern:
Analogy (35 Q)
Quanatitative (45 Q)
Verbal (40 Q)
In Total, We'd to attend 120 Qs in 90 Min, so we'd to race against the time. The English paper was just a bit higher than Spoken English, but was not hi-fi like GRE English. But this could b completed within 15 min. And reg -ve marnking, nothing was mentioned, so we'd to refrain from wild guessing. There was no restriction of order of the sections, we cud attend it in any order. And Persaonl Interview was quite cool.
I thank you very much. And my sincere request to the group members, whoever gets a job, don't wind up from the group all of a sudden, serve as far as u can, and remember they'd helped u in the difficult situations.

the next round was GD....(in a panel around 14 students)
from this round they shortlisted 142 students....
the next round was technical hr(it included the round of personl hr also,Maybe due to lack of time)
Atlast 50 students were selected from thelast round.... then we were given our OFFER LETTERS......
Hope the above listing would give u all an idea of the selection process.GOOD LUCK.
I got selected on last saturday in polaris for testing profile. I would like to share my experience with u all as like others so that it may be useful.
There were 2 rounds on the same day-first was technical, second was technical & hr combined.
In first round they checked my basics in Java, C++ & DS like what is a pointer, pure virtual fns, wrapper class, interface etc.This took place around 12:00PM for around 20 min. They keep on confusing u but it's important to stick on to the answer. They filtered many in this round.
After 6 &1/2 hrs i.e around or after 6:30PM, was my 2nd round. Here lies an importance that u don't show any tiredness & frustration on ur face. Even if there r long gaps between the rounds in interviews it's important to maintain little freshness & also not to get panicked. Just stay cool. Here they asked me questions on my project, sql server( which i mentioned in my CV) like wot is cursor, creating table syntax, view, advantages of java, whether i would like to work for this profile, abt the company. U can manage the questions which u doesn't know by saying that u don't know or not able to recollect. Overall they checked factors like confidence, accuracy, answering capabilities, little on dress code too. Overall it's not a too difficult interview as they didn't go into too much depth. The questions they ask are based on rating u specify like i mentioned 5-6 & 6-7.
After this round they asked me to wait outside & within 2min i was informed that I got selected. Hope this may be useful for u all.
