Programming ( Aptitude Test ) :

They give you a Program and they expect you to code it in a language that you are comfortable with – if you are a computer science student or if you are of any other branch, you could write even the logic, algorithm or represent the logic in the form of a FLOW chart. 
They check to see your approach in writing the code and not syntax. so they won’t check for common mistakes like if you forget a ‘;’ etc. so dont worry about syntax. but do try and write the program in Code. they may favour you… 

Program They Asked : 

Write a program to input an integer and

i. Display the reverse

Before you begin the interview, they ask you to write a simple program. The programs were like : Bubble sort, Binary search, Cound the no. of vowels in a sentence and display the word that has the max no. of vowels etc.
I could feel that mostly the interview was focused on Programming.
