Criteria : 60% aggregate and above in engineering.

Branches :  Comp / IT / ENTC ( ALL )

Package :  4.50 lacs for freshers per annum

The Selection procedure is normal as other companies, we have to under go 3 stages:
1) Aptitude Test
2) Technical Interview
3) Hr Interview

Aptitude Test begins: (there was no negative marking but there is the sectional cut off of 50%)

The test was divided into 4 categories and each of them contains 20 question and 20 min. are provided for each section, and we were forced to solve a section for 20 min. only and once the 20 mins are over then only we can jump to the next section.

First section was the English section, for me it is the toughest hurdle coz I had prepared the articles, prepositions, tenses, synonyms and antonyms but the pattern of the test was totally different, there was a complete sentence in which a fragment is underlined and we have to replace that fragment with the given options, and it was a real hack when I tried out options one by one every one is perfectly fine. I was really confused and the next five question were like

Prem Chandra was a _______ poet, he has written several ______ with his title and still lots of them _______.

In these question I shooted lots of arrows (I hope some of them might hit the target )

Next 5 question were like Heat: temperature:: _______:_______ I m sure that I haven’t answered more then 2 correctly.

And the last five question were based on a passage (I say to me that, “yaar agar English ki sectional cut off cross karna hai to kuch bhikar ke ye sare question thik karne hi padenge”) I read the passage twice and I m sure that I must have answered all the question right.

Two mins were still there, I tried to keep myself calm but I was really frustrated.

Next section was Maths no problem for me at all.. I was quite frustrated coz of mine English section that’s why I was even unable to remember the table of 18 in one of question. I have to find 18 * 9 nothing came in to mind at that time every thing was like ??????? then I done 180-18 to calculate it again was even unable to subtract I said oh god ..what is happening today. Then after a min I regained my senses and I have done 16 questions 100% correct in just 10 or 11 odd mins. Question were very simple like

1)A can do a work in 31 days and B can do the same work in 8 days ,A alone started the work after few days he was joined by B, and the work completed in 10 days . After how many days A is been joined by B.

2)In an election between 2 candidate one have got 53% votes and won by 1057 votes, how many votes were there ?

3)A spent 3589 Rs. In first four months and 5216 Rs. In next eight months, if he saves 2368 Rs per month then what is his salary ?

4)A man sells a bike and a cow in 14000 Rs., by selling his bike he loses 20% and gained 20% in selling his cow, if the total profit was 200 Rs. Then what was the cost price of cow?

5)Two no. are in 2:3 ratio if the three fifth of the first number is added to two third of the second no then the new ratio will be ?

6)The cp a ltrs of milk is 12 rs, a milk man purchases 20lts of milk and wants to earn 200Rs. in the transaction if he sells 20 ltrs of milk then how much water will be the sp of a ltr milk… (too simple its not allegation)

And simple problem on ages, allegation, time and distance etc.

Next Section, Reasoning was avg. not too easy not too tough, an average person can do almost 65% of the question and rest of the question were quite tough,question were like,

A, B, C, D, and E were 3 guys and 2 girls, each one have the b’day in Jan, Feb,..may;

Each one of them like sweets, ice cream…etc. 

Note : verbal as well as non verbal reasoning was there (don’t worry it was easy ) 

Now It’s the time for the Technical Section which was the last section of the paper:

Most of the questions were based on the C output and rest of the question were from networking, Computer Architecture, Operating System. Question were like:

1)which is the fastest : FTP, TELNET, TCP, etc.

int x=20,y=35;
x= x++ + y++;
y = ++x + ++y;
printf(“%d %d”,x,y);

3)char *p[]=”rachit and devender”;

4)const char *p[]=”abhishek and Ankur”;
 char k=’a’;

 extern int i;

6) main(){
 int i,j=2;
 if(i%j !=0)
For what values if i the output will be 5 : options 1)when i is even 2) odd 3)prime 4) fro all

7)complexity of merge sort .?

8)which sorting also will use to sort {1,2,3,4,5} ?

9)which cpu register holds the address of next instruction?

  Char *p[]=”pradeep mani”;
11) select * from dual ; output..??

12) we cant typedef (i) pointers (ii) function (iii) double (iv) I and II both

above are some of the question which are been asked in the 4th section of the Aptitude test. 

Now they asked us to wait for 30 mins, it was really a tough time our heart was beating at full speed.. 30 mins seems to be 30 years,

Now the result is been declared..

A person came and said that only 5 people are selected every one of us were astonished, we were assuming that at least 15 people will crack this Aptitude  but that was really strange, My name was there, but I really feel bad for all my friends who were unable to cross this barrier. They have given us a form to fill up, it’s a general details entry form, they take our CVs and ask us for reporting them with in 15 Mins.

It was really tough hurdle coz it mainly focuses on the technical round but I was well prepared for this round coz I may not be totally perfect, but parts of me are excellent.

Now the battle of questions and answer started.

We were in our college at 9:00 am and now it was around 2:30 pm I was the second person to go for the technical round,

They asked me have you taken your lunch I said, “no, I don’t even had my break fast”, then they ask me are you hungry I have some snacks with me I said, “no thanks, I m just hungry for the job”.

Then they started bombarding questions,
1)what is pointer to a function ..
2)Explain the working of pointer to a function
3)Difference between char const *p, const char *p,const * char p, const char * const p
4)What Is FILE *fp
5)Write a program to print a file from the last .
6)Write a program to encrypt the file

7)What is abstraction
8)What is run time polymorphism
9)What is register storage class? If a variable is declared as register then is it compulsory that it will be of storage type register?
10)What is interface in java ?
11)What is implementation ?

12)Why java doesn’t support multiple inheritance ?
13)Is c++ is pure object oriented?
14)Why we need new operator in java at the time of object declaration and why not in c++?

15)Write a program to implement virtual functions ?
16)What is the difference between file and data base storage ?
17)Difference between hierarchical data model and network data model ?
18)What are the 12 codd’s rule ?
19)Gave me a table and asked me to normalize it up to 3 nf ?
20)Difference between BCNF and 4 nf ?
21)Difference between conflict and view serialzability
22)What is batch operating system ?
23)Difference between multiprogramming and multitasking ?
24)What are different types of scheduler ? explain short term scheduler ?
25)What are different scheduling algorithms ?

26)What is a system call?
27)Monitors and Semaphores ?
28)What are different CPU registers ?
29)Object oriented model, Component Assembly model and Waterfall model ? compare them ?
30)Difference between OSI and TCP/IP?
31)X.25 ?

32)CSMA/CD ?


34)Heap Sort, Merge Sort ?
35)Hashing Technique ?

I was thinking that, “yaar kintne question poochenge ye log, voh poochte ja rahe the aur main batataja raha tha”, there were lots of other question..

This round lasted for around 50 -55 mins and HR round was also attached to this because we were only 5 people selected out there, now came the time for the HR interview:

Normal Questions:
1)Describe Yourself as a person ?(she said I don’t want u to repeat the resume, something which in not mentioned in that)
2)Say something about dream.. I said, “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”
3)Which is your dream company ? I said that, “I m telling u the truth, my dream company is Google”, then she asked me why Google, I was well prepared for that question I said, “God is with them who have the courage to fly, not with them who stand on the ground and watch the sky”, then wla wla wla…
4)Then why Us ? “One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness”, that’s what I have done at that time 
5)Where do you see yourself after 5 years ?
6)Say something on,”when you are in Rome do what Romans do”
And that’s it, finally me and three of my friends were selected in it.
At last I want to say that,

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”

So if you are not selected don’t worry coz “after every sad day there comes the glad day”
