capgemini Pattern & Interview – 12th 2007
In general Kanbay (or) Capegemini is conducting it’s test pattern as follows:
- Written test –> mathematics + analytical (very easy)
- Group discussion
- General interview (technical partly & maximum of hr)
1. Written criteria:
at 11:00 we have attended 4 written
I feel that as an enginnering student it can be answered without any preparation since mathematics is our intermediate basis & analytical is our commonsense…
Mathematics—->30 ques + }—->60 min & correct–1m; wrong—>1/4 -ve marking;
Cutoff—->min of 10m in each section……
No “over” cutofff…
Attended : 300
passed : 66
I Did well & luckily I’m one of 66…..
2. Group discussion:
12 a batch ; totally 6 batches… our topic is “ragging in campuses” iam the initiater ; fluent in english & started smartly by replacing, the culture of ragging with interaction among sr’s & jr’s…..
I Lead the team efficiently through out my discussion by
—> releasing new points when deviation in team observed
like organisation of events like sports & freshers meet to have healthy interaction among them
—> made the team to run on my words & ultimately gaining trust from them to my point
—> good body language;evoking points like by frequent get-togethers with sr’s jr’s can acquire academic knowledge efficiently & faster than single one’s…
—> So, initiate; come with good points whenever necessary; etting consensus is quite important at the end… U get selected in gd if u follow this
Result :out of 66 ;;;”44″ are selected since all batches done well as a team & group… I’M one of themmmm…
absolutely it is a full pledged hr –interview………

–> After my answering to all questions he asked
Only one thing that “how can u give ur answers in such an effective way!!!!
I Think u have prepared every word before interview ????????”
answer: to be honest “yes” sir …
–> Then his question was “so u speak all this formally because of interview but not really??”
answer: no sir “words are not coming from mind,,,evoking from my “heart”…….””
–> for this he was impressed very much by saying “wow what a golden word”… after that he asked my strengths
–> habit of doing it now; versatile & flexible ; optimistic
he asked about location : mumbai, pune, hyd etc.,
I said that ‘I will go with the company’
that’s my interview completed….
Out of 44 —- selected -> 30 ******** I was a Kanbaian now**********
