Interview was purely HR for me.. tell me abt urself, hobbies..will u b able to relocate at pune/mumbai..thats it
out of 90+ freshers 11 got shortlisted.. for the interview.
The selection process overview is as follows..
Te aptitude consisted of three sections..
1) quantitative of 45 questions,the cutoff being 23
2) reasoning 25 qs cutoff 15
3) verbal test of 25 qs cutoff 13
the verbal section had few fill ups, and little bit of synonyms. the words for this part was from GRE Barron’s.
All the test questions were similar to the ones I found here on this
the interview was personal. qs like tell me about yourself, your family, education, etc. and we were asked to write a c program. simple ones like factorial, prime no..etc..
few people were also asked about their projects. almost all of us were asked to talk for three minutes about any nontechnical topic.
It seemed that once you clear the apti, they were mainly checking your confidence. The confidence to communicate and talk well seemed to be more important than a flawless english speech. This might have been particular to the recruitment team that came to myinstitution.
