In Satyam computers GD topic was as given below and they asked
total 50 qns of flow chart and some basic computers concept. 25
questions were from given 50 problems and rest 25 were from java,n/w .
But try to mug -up all given 50 qns and answers bcoz u will get
25 questions directly from these 50.
There intervws are only formality . But GD is most important. Bcoz .Itopped in written test but didnt clear GD
Anyway All The Best
Some computer qns:;
Qn No.are not in seq
1: Full form of CASE:: computer aided s/w engg
2: UML:: Unified modelling language
3: ANS:: Ring Topology
Rest I forgot.
it will be same for all groups

Full Selection process
1) Written Test->15 qns/30 mins/with negative marking [ 700 students wrote-300 got through ]
2) Group Discussion->Satyam's Main Elimination round [ 142 got through ]
3) Interviews,HR and Tech at the same time [ 85 got through finally ]
The written test consisted of questions which tested your core logic.The quesitons are all written in a twisted way,so if you are nervous in the beginning itself,then time may go VERY FAST.Write the test as if there is nothing to lose and in a relaxed manner;you will get through very easily.These are the questions i remember.
#1)You will be given about 9 sentences like..
1) This sentence is.
2) After this sentence,4 sentences may follow
3) This sentence is being referred to by 2 other sentences
4) This is the first sentence in the paragraph
You had to identify the correct sequence of sentences.For eg:,its damn sure that (4) is the first sentence..likewise you had to writte the complete order
#2) A sentence was given and you had to calculate the number of a's, b's. c's.
#3) A quantitative question based on speed and distance
#4) Another very easy quantitative based on numbers
#5) There was some material in bags of different weights...like 18kg,15kg,20kg etc...Two persons bought a total of 5 bags,but the total weight bought by one was double the weights of other person.Find out the weights of individual persons.
Hint:dont go for complex formulas and all.Check out the choices given and see which choice corresponds to "one person having double the weight of other"
#6) A large paragraph was given.And the numbers in it was given in base 3.You had to calculate the number of 0's,1's,2's and express them in base 3 itself.
#7) A supermarket tagged the item price ,based on the following code(iam giving you a sample only,i cant remember the exact values)
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Q P V T A C O R S D
For eg:Rs769 was coded as ROD.
Now one day,they changed the code to:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
U Z F P B L W S T G
Next 4 questions were based on this.
Under the new code system,whats the code for Rs 482?-->BTF
#8) Similar question..they gave the code and asked to write down the price
#9) A salesman made a mistake and coded the system according to old-code-system.You had to find the difference in price if it was coded in the new-code-system
#10) There are a few alphabets common to both the systems.Identify those[ans:here it isTSP]
#11) There were 4 guys [say A,B,C,D] and they could send e-mails to each other through these ways.
A can send directly to C
C can send directly to D
A can send directly to B
D could send directly to C
Now,they asked whats the best way for A to send mails to B..!Ofcourse the answer was A to B directly in this case,but they may fool you with indirect paths.
#12) One had to make a fence with poles 5 feet apart.But when he did that,he found out that there were 4 poles extra.So he relaid the fence with poles 7 feet apart and all the poles fit in correctly.Find out the length of the fence.
70ft / 77 ft /73 feet/none of these.
I guess the answer is none-of-these,because the answer should divide completely by 7 and at the same time,leave a remainder of 4 when divided by 5.
I dont remember the rest of the 3 questions.
They divided 300 into 30 groups with 10 each,though there were some extra people in some groups.The topics were 'Importance of UN in world peace','Environmental Pollution','Sports'..[the team had the option to select].This is said to be the main-elimination-round of Satyam,so make sure you speak something.Dont get tensed because,even for me,this was my first GD and i went in as if there was nothing to loose.And i spoke about 2 sentences thats all.Also keep in mind the basic rules of GD.It also depended a lot on the group performance.Even if you are getting stuck somewhere and think that i GOT TO speak something,dont jump in and interfere,because if the group performs moderately well,then a large number may get in.From our group of 12,seven got selected,whereas in other groups,as little as 1-2 were selected.We guys were not super-guys-with-excellent-communication-skills,but normal people who could manage some english!And dont show off,for sure you will get eliminated.
Interview was both tech and hr.Iam just giving you the questions which i got and many others which i overheard from others.
*Describe about your project
*What makes Java,platform independent?
*Default kernel of redhat 7.2?[2.4.7-10]

The recruitment process consisted of 3 rounds.
1. Written test
2. Group Discussion
1. Written test was of 30 minutes, 15 questions. +1 or
-1/4 (negative correction was there)
The paper was of Logical Aptitude
Some questions were very easy like-
one-third of a number is also half. (Ans.3/2)
arranging the sentences in a sequence.
counting the number of a's, b's, i's etc in a sentence
decoding the codes.(some numbers and corresponding
letters for them will be given - very easy - new code
and old codes will be there)
5 ltr and 3 ltr, will be there 4 ltr has to be
Some questions were confusing. Don't attempt the
questions if u r not sure.
I think for this paper, you can't have a book to
refer. It depends on how u analyse the questions at
that time. Be cool, don't get tensed.
2.Group Discussion for those who clear the test.
I got the topic-"Why is Indian Hockey limping"
You have to speak and tell something different(
hightlight a point which is not made by other members
of the group). I think they see leadership quality,
Taking Initiative etc.
I came to know the two other topics, which were -
"UN's peace activities" and "America's war on Iraq".
If u clear this round u will move on to interview.
3. It consists of HR and technical interview.- both
will be held at the same time by two people
In HR interview they ask questions like - tell about
yourself, your parents, brothers, sisters. why should
I recruit u?, What r your interests, hobbies-quesitons
In technical interview I was asked questions on -
circular linked list, OOPs features(encapsulation,
inheritance etc.), How a C program will be executed?
(First preprocessing, compiling etc.), Difference
between Java and C++, about bite code, threads and
process, applets, Virtual functions, abstract class,
public, private, protected, etc.
I heard that some people were asked questions on
DBMS, microprocessors, C, OS
Questions on your project.
While answering be confident, if don't know the answer
the selection procedure :
it includes 3 rounds: written+gd+Interview(hr+tech)
written test: 30 min test, 15Q's of analytical ability with -ve marking of 1/4 marks.I f u ans 6-7 Q's correctly, then u will hav high chances for qualifying,i met people who attempted 6-7 q's and i saw them thru. Barrons GMAT would be a great help for the aspirants.
GD:7-8 people in a group,they will allot 12-15 min.,for me it was 12 min. 10 min for citing views and 2min for conclusion.My topic was , " whether the brand name is a way of life or not?, the other topics were as follows:
India gifted the WorldCup toAustralia or not?
gd shud be the part of selection process..?
Follow the basic rules of gd and do hav a say in the conclusion.... and Please do not interfere!!!!!!! GD is the man elimination round for the Satyam..so B careful
HR+TECH: This is the easiest and the coolest part of the process..Basically Q's o ur Project and basics of C,C++ and Java.Most frequently asked Q's
Diff. b/w C++ & Java,conectivity of VB with Database,etc...
Note: IF u are unable to ans few Q's..say sorry..dont try to beat around the bush..I fu are not answering 2-3 Q's it does't mean..tht ur going to fail..while interiewing hey basically check ur comm. skills and confidence. so b confident.
PS: Satyam is going to recruit again next month..its a massive recrui. drive so oppur. is there..
