Sample Test Paper
SATYAM - Placement Paper - 24 July 2006
This is N.SaiPriya.i am doing my final year in CSE from LITAM,guntur. recently i got selected for SATYAM.i would like to share my experience with all the Aspirants.
first of alll let me tell u the rounds
3.HR + TR INTERVIEWS
u must be knowing that there will be 15 questions.U will be given a time of 30 mins...
Questions will be mainly from RS AGGARWAL.be thorough with that and u will find the paper very easy....
i dont remember the questions exactly but will try to give u a basic idea
1.a man thought that he would drop by some money everyday into temple's donation box for a year and everyday he will double the amount.if he starts with re.1 then how much money will he drop at the end of the seventh day?
2.u will have a pyramid problem..where u will b given a pyramid of numbers with either an error or a missing number.u have to solve as per the question.(just try to find the logic of the pyramid..he wudnt give u any big logic..check for simple ones)
3.if 0 is@ and if 1 is represented as $
then what is the value for $$@$
3,4 problems on reasoning..if u think u are really good at it then go for it other wise keep it for last.
5.there will be a pattern given to u.. like
a) a b
pick the odd one out (the answer is simple third one-just see the format).
6.there was a problem on ratio and proportion.(some percentages were given.question was regarding water and alcohol.it is in the text book.
7.there was a problem on trains.(very easy)know the concept its enough..
8.problem on profit and loss.(i didnt solve it)
well that is what i remember.sorrrrryyyyyy!!!!!!! i would sugest u to solve atleast 8-9 questions.no guesswork plz as there is negative marking with satyam.first go through the paper.dont think that solving the paper from 1 st question will help u.i started from last page as the problems at the last page are damn easy..so have a look and solve questions that appear easy.... cut off is generally 6-7 so make sure u get atleast 9 correct.
clearing the written is easy.
then comes the main elimination round
see a lot of ppl get scared of this round..its not that tough as it is said to be.. but u have to know that this is not a contest...u r just askd to dicuss not to prove anything.basic topics will be given..if they ask u to selct topic then make sure that u go with ur groups opinion as they will be looking for team qualities. be as polite as possible in ur approach.its good if u take intiative but if u wont dont think u will lose.just make sure that whatever point u make its a strong one..i didnt atke the initiative but i made a strong point.then my group actually started figthing which sends out a very wrong signal to the refree.so i asked them to calm down and told them that we are deviating from the actual point.try to bring ur group together and make sure that u dont appear dominating but still u have good hold on them..try to know all of thier names b4 u start.this would help. sit properly ,behave professionally.onevery important thing is they are not looking for ur english or speaking skills all they look for is ur confidence and how well u r able to present urself.they look for the clarity of thought so plzz stop thinking that this is for those who r fluent in english...
my topic was ROLE OF IT IN GLOBAL ECONOMY.. i made it through (i didnt initiate or conclude).
once u get through GD u are finally there.if u carry urself well u r into the company.last round is very formal...
HR+ TR INTERVIEWS
In SATYAM technical and hr is combined so u shud cash on this oppurtunity so if u dont do well in tech but u do good in HR there is chance that u will be selected.so its abt ur confidence. dont be nervous when u walk in.girls dont keep those handkerchiefs with u coz u will rub them out of tension.walk in with a sweet gentle smile.wish the panel..take ur seat when they say.place evarything that u have on the table.sit straight and wear a swet smile.dont look too eager for questions.be calm and composed
my questions were
1)write a program to print first ten even numbers(simple format)
2)what are ur sem subjects?explain each of them(just basic concepts)
3)what is software engineering?
4)what is the difference b/w c and c++(very basic nah?)
5)what is compiler and interpretor? the technical round may not be this simple.prepare well.work hard.luck is the main factor...
1)tell me abt urself(dont stop until they give any sign to stop)
2)tell me abt DAV(its the shool frm where i completed my 10th and 12th-was really intrested in this asked me around 4 questions on this topic)
3)what is ur father?
4)are u willing to be relocated?(default answer -yes)
5)where did u do ur inter from?(as i did my schooling frm north so he was impressed).
thats it . after 4 hrs of tirious wait results were announced and i made it through....was really happy. dont atke any company lightly...and if u dont make it dont get upset coz thousands of oppurtunities are out there. my whole experience was very gr8 and i thought this is the easiest recruoitment process that one can have but plzz dont go by this my friends were asked questions on C ,DS,DBMS,OS.(IT DEPENDS ON UR LUCK-FOR ME GOD WAS WITH ME THE WHOLE TME...) be thorough with the concepts of C an DS(data structures).
that was my experience....NO COMPANY IS BIG OR SMALL..EXPERIENCE IS THE MAIN THING..prepare well
WORK HARD.THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HARDWORK.U HAVE TO HELP URSELF TO SHAPE YOUR FUTURE dare to dream and strive to achieve it.ur percieverance and hard work will definetly pay off. all the best to all of u and i hope this paper wud in some way give u small hint abt the pattern.ok everyone see u in SATYAM then bye..
