igate pattern & interview – 01 dec2006
I am Vamsee doing my B.Tech final ECE from Aurora’s Engineering College. I got selected for iGATE global on 1st dec thru campus drive held at CBIT.
I wanna give u some suggestions..
1st round was a Written Test
They gave 15 questions to be answered in 30 mins with no multiple choice. We need to solve the question and write the answer and no negative marking…. Some questions which they gave are lengthy. don’t panic by seeing them. they are very easy to solve……cut off was about 11-12 for 15 i guess……
73 people got selected for GD round from about 600 students who appeared for the written test.
Next coming to GD……each group had 10 members. So total of 7 groups in GD. My my topic was on dress code (shud there be a dress code at college level?) and one more topic I remember for the other group was on reservations. these are the topics I remember. from each group they selected around 5 members.
So around 35 students shortlisted for personal interview (includes technical and HR separately)..
Next coming to Technical round
I am from ECE group.so i’ll tell u wat the interviewer asked me…….
learn C and Data Stuctures well (be prepared to write a program, bcoz the interviewer asked me to write a program without a single syntax or logical error so be careful..), then micro processors (8085,8086), then go thru some basics of communication and digital electronics (if u are a ECE student)………. if u mention anything about ur paper presentations and mini projects in ur resume be ready to explain them clearly…..bcoz he asked me about the papers which i presented in depth and he asked me to explain my mini projects ……..if u r done wid all these u r going to clear technical round for sure…..
Next coming to HR round
1st the basic question…. tell me abt u’rself…next u’r strengths and weaknesses…….u’r hobbies….etc,….. wat ever u say, say it confidently and try to be honest….its not a big deal clearing HR round…..but be careful wid tech round….ok . wat ever u speak be loud and clear in gd and personal interview… try to speak positively .. avoid grammar mistakes while u r speaking and be confident…..don’t worry its not dat hard…..u can clear them easily….all the best prepare well and do well………..
So finally 20 students got selected for iGATE out of around 600 students who attended the campus drive…
