I attened syntel intv . It was purely HR for me. Not even one question from technical side. There r about 5 or 6 panels. It is one to one interview. Most os the panels were like that. In one panel they aasked Linked list programs and asked them to give a speech abt any topic for 3 minutes. They rarely ask tech ques. 1 ques in microprocessor was how will U find a no odd or even [ there is another method other than sucessive divsion which has got something to do with the last bit of the number]. For a EEE student there was a question from House wiring.
On the whole they measure Ur communication skills and ability to work in a team. Prepare for ques like where U c urself in 5 years from now, wat is Ur hobbies, How was ur project team, wat difficulties U faced in Ur project group and how U overcome those etc. Be prepared to explain Ur project clearly.
The interview was very friendly. All the best for those going to attend the interview
