Here goes my experience in I-Gate Solutions!

Questions: All quesion are easy if u have read R S AGGARWAL.

—>some coding related question.. ABC HAKDH IAS is denoted as JIADJ ADH AH (some thing like tht) simple ones!
–>number series.. x/5, x/4 x/3 x/2 x/1 was the series..

Took 28 from total of around 450 people.
Next was interviews
1)Tech interview: most students said a lot of tech question were asked.. from C, CPP, DBMS, OS, Data Structures, sorting algortithms.
Simple Rule: BE Confident in wht u say!! else they ask us more details..
Interviewer asked me which all sorting algorithm I know.”I said quick bubble insertion slection”
then asked complexity of each.. thts all
Some were asked linked lists.. (no program was asked.. just explain concepts)
then referential integrity, foreign keys, types of sql queires (select, delete etc) etc etc
for me tech was little only! my resume said I have good interests in stock markets. so he asked a lot about that! I answered all of them and then asked 4-5 tech questions.. and about MINI PROJECT was asked..
Then interviewer will ask about ur marks in each sem.. if there is any drop,, he asks why..
for me its was a drop from 92 in 10th to 82% in 12th to 69% in btech! he asked me why.. just admitted I didnt study well .. and said I will score better in coming semester and will make aggragate to 73%.. he asked 3-4 times ARE U CONFIDENT? (like in KBC -BIG B ;)) I said yes! confident! sure!!
he said “if u dont make 73. i wont take u to igate!1 =)) )
then asked me why I want to join i gate..
then asked where u see ur self after 5 years.
then gave me HR form.. and feedback also was given on spot! (my accent was week.. he told to improve it..)
HR interviewer hd nothing new to ask me. she just repeated wht was asked in tech!!
why igate?? dream achievement? tell us about parents etc etc
at last “are u willing to sign a bond for 2 years.”
I didnt accept.. still they took me in!
