I am Nithya.A from SNS COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY-Coimbatore (2008 batch)became SATYAMATE as i got selected in Satyam after a much struggle. This is my 3rd company. I have not even cleared the written test in wipro and infosys. Friends my only advice to you is don’t lose hope. Try and do hard work till you succeed
First of all I would like to thank the owners of this wonderful group FreshersWorld and all the members who have been providing valuable information about companies from time to time.
I would like to thank god and my parents and my dear most brother karthik.A (HCL-HARIDWAR), Teachers, Relatives and Friends for this smallest achievement.
Well coming to the point I would like to tell you about the pattern. Actually it is a 30 min test and there are 15 questions. The most important thing is time management. Questions are very easy.
I did not remember the questions
1: Aptitude test: CLOCKS
TIME AND WORK
SI AND CI
NO SERIES, ODD MAN OUT
PROBLEM BASED ON CRICKET
PROFIT AND LOSS
2: Group discussion
MY topic was “WESTERN CULTURE IS NECESSARY OR NOT?”
I neither initiated nor summed up the session .But in the middle I make many valuable points. My +se points: I did not watch the SATYAM person, I have spoken thrice. When some of my team members were struggling during the discussing I have managed their inconvenience by agreed their points and started adding my points on it.
Some topics can be spoken for or against; in such cases it is better to start with the description about the topic.
Don’t interrupt or argue with your team. We were 10 members before entering into GD we all decided not to quarrel with others and allow all of them to talk in 10min.
I’m the lucky person because the person who judged our GD session is the one who interviewed me. He is MR.R.K. SWAMY working in SATYAM Chennai branch at present he got 6 years of experience.
Since I have done my GD well it paved the way for my selection.
Some other topics for my friends are,
Marriages are made in heaven.
Is Chinabetter than Indiain software Education in India?
Are women a better managers?
To initiate a GD
iii. Facts, Short story
