There were three sections in written test viz, verbal, quantitative
and reasoning. u got 30 mins for each sectrion.
verbal - 35 questions in 30 mins.
quantitative - 45 questions in 30 mins.
reasoning - 30 questions in 30 mins.
cutoff for each section is 50% of the questions in that section.
once u r thru, u will get a call for interview.
its very general kind of interview. they ask about ur family background and personal questions. they can ask about ur final year project and what all is mentioned in ur resume.
technical questions are rare, but for safer side, be ready for such questiosn also.
they normally look for ur attitude and confidence level in interviews.

SYNTEL-Placement Paper -20 Jul 2003
I had applied to Syntel on july 15th thru a mail id given in this group.I got an admit card & call to write the test on July 20th 9am.
Many people had come to write the Test.The classrooms in all the 3 floors of the building got filled.
They first give u Section-2 aptitude-60mins(dunno why they jumbled the order of section 1 & 2.)
Then they give Section 1- Verbal-15mins
Lastly,Section 3- Logical Reasoning.-45mins.
The questions are quite easy,if u go thru RSAgarwal u wud be able to answer the questions but the problem is u need to be really really fast in answering the question. Verbal was also quite tough u need to go thru GRE book I guess. Logical Reasoning was quite cool for most of the questions the choice 'a' was the answer so didn;t have to bother going thru the other choices.I wasn't able to complete the paper as I told u Speed is essential.
To be specific there were qns on
"Trains","Compound Interest"(4-5 qns in this),"Time and Work"(if A does in so many days,B does in so many days how long will A+B take kinds!),"Proportion"(if u mix so much sugar in -litres of water what is the percentage of sugar in the soln..!),
a,b are prime nos, a=b+2 is a an odd number(yes/no?)
I think the answer is Yes.
In Verbal give antonyms for waffle,dissonance,Chagrin..
Relations:- Sartorial:Tailor ; Feud : ----------;
and Some fill in the blanks.
They selected some 38 ppl for the Interview by 1.30pm .I got selected for the Interview.Interview was held the same day.
Interview was purely HR he asked questions like;
Brief me about what u have done after ur 12th
What do u consider as ur Strengths
What was ur project on?
What are ur software skills?
Are u strong in ur Technical Skills(I said yes,he didn't ask me tech. qns.)
The placement was for the position of "Programmer",placement will be in Mumbai or Pune.
1st one month will be Training on Mainframes,Languages etc....from 9am to 11pm!!!!!
Then u wud be put into live projects.
