CSC Placement Paper December 2005
Steps for selection :
- First an aptitude written
- Right after that a technical written
- Candidates shortlisted, called for GD in groups of 4-5 ( I got topic
- Interviews (both HR and Tech together)
It consisted of two papers ( both held separately ) of 40 mints each. Aptitude ( vocab, quanta, puzzles, Data interpretation, data sufficiency ) .. everything similar to CAT and other MBA entrance stuff. total 40 questions. Vocab was limited to matching the pairs.
Technical ( total 75 questions ) about all topics..
C,C++,java,networking,DBMS, OS, even electronics ( very less ), general tech stuff etc., due to no. of questions, one had to keep track of time.. most were pretty easy..
There was No Negative marking.
And yeah, many tech questions were repeat from prev year questions…
NOTE: CSC used to be known as PMSI previously, so their papers are imp also. they repeat even from 1999 papers !
Well the interviewer during my time was being taken by two people.. both were HR guys. but asked very general HR questions like describe yourself, hobbies, a bit bout family etc. also, what do u want to do 3 yrs down the line etc.
In technical interview, since the interviewers were hr guys, they were asking basics, about DBMS, ( a bit of data mining too ) like normalization forms, what are advantage & disadvantage of 3NF ..
OOPs: what is oops, identify classes in this room, give their properties..
about OS: difference between Linux & windows..
C++ : what are friend classes, difference between c+ & java.
That’s all, as far as i remember, i had a v short interview. around 15 mints. ( they were tired, i guess ) but others had bigger interviews, some almost touching 1hr.
