These are some Caritor Inc. (IT soln) materials in our colleg, out of 250 odd, 72 shortlisted for GROUP INTERVIEW

GROUP INTERVIEW

(HR type but 10 ppl at a time, i.e. around the interviewer )--- std questions for each of the ppl: tell me abt urself? wt can u contribute to the company as an individual? how do u see urself in 3 years? why dint u get selected in the prev campus placement prgm and wt did u learn frm them? here he mainly sees ur CONFIDENCE , UR EXPRESSIONS and UR ABILIY TO CONVEY THE MESSAGE bcos the work involves lot of travel to US and UK where u will struggle if u dont have these things

10 were shortlited for FINAL interview: 9 got selected (1 EEE, 5 ECE, 2 IT 1 CSE)

The test is of on-line type and it consists of two sections, I'll

list them in detail later. Please note down ur serial no., ur batch & time of test from the

xl chart sent by the placement officer. You'll have to log on to ur screen & enter some

preliminary details. Then u can proceed to either of the following two sections first...

though both of them are mandatory. When in a section, you can answer questions in any order and

re-check the results (unlike GRE). An automatic clock will be running for 30 mts for each section.

When done, u can 'exit the test' and go to the next section. PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON LOG OFF

BEFORE YOU FINISH THE ENTIRE TEST!

1. Aptitude (GRE pattern -- verbal + maths)

30 Questions in 30 mts -- you'll have to be really fast!

Verbal was manageable it seems and for maths, pl. refer RS Aggarwal.

Key areas in maths -- Permutation-Combination; Trigonometry

Get the questions from ur friends in the previous batches...these tend to repeat.

2. Technical Section: (C or C++)

30 Questions in 30 mts.

key areas in C --> POINTERS, Looping & general input-output

sample quesion: for (i=1; i=3; i++) { <body of the loop } -- how many times will the loop

get executed ? Ans: JUST ONCE (i.e. when i = 3)

C++ key areas --> OOPS concepts in and out

Constructors-destructors; dynamic binding; polymorphism; inheritance etc.

Suggestion: If u're strong enuf in pointers, u might consider C; else if u're confident b't ALL

the OOPS concepts, u'd want C++.

***********************************************************************

I took the test before three weeks,Here are few of the questions i remember. There are two

sections The aptitude section is very easy

1.aptitude(30 minutes,30 questions)

*verbal

1.analogies

2.word_____word

there would be five options,out of which one word would belong to the same categorie as

the remaining words.

*logical reasoning(like GRE,but easy)

*non-verbal

1.what would be the next figure in the sequence

*quantitative aptitude

*time and work(easy)

*allegation and mixture

a's concentration is 10%,b's 20%,c's 30%.the liquids are mixed in the ratio 1:2:3.

the resultant concentration of the mixture is 23%.find each's concentration.

(I am not sure about the numbers)

*time and distance in a 100m race 'a' is ahead of 'b' by 10feets.if the speed of b is

increased by 3m/s she is ahead of 'a' by 10feets in 120m race.find the speed of 'a'.

*age(easy)

*data interpretation

(questions were asked from the above models for me)

2.c or c++(it's your choice to choose one,30 minutes,30 questions)

it was bit tough

*pointers

*function pointer

*structure

struct emp

{

Int a;

char b;

};

struct mn

{

double c;

struct emp d;

} q;

Q.sizeof(q)

ans:11(check it)

*char a="kamal";

char p*="anand";

a)compilation error

b)runtime error

c)work properly

d)

*char a[]={10,20,20,30};

char *p;

int b;

p=&a;

b=*p++;

printf("%d",b);

*if there is a global variable defined in another file is it

necessary to define it again in the current program.
