Hello people, I recently attended ACCENTURE interview n wud lik to share my experience...
It was a pool camp in SJBIT, BANGALORE. Im from CS branch..There were more than (appx) 5000+ students(dono exact no).Finally appx 600+ cleard..After some document verification 1st round was started..
There were 4 rounds:
1.Aptitude:English grammar,quantitative, subtitution of symbols,essay
There were some 4 fill in the blanks(very easy),2-3 synonyms,then 2 reading the passage
1 long(topic:hologram), 1 short( topic was pattern recognition)..then there were some 4 more grammatical questions. Im not an expert in english but still believe me this will be very easy only thing is u shd revise parts of speech.. i used school std grammer buk..then comes aptitude(i seriously hate it) but still it was easy.. use r.s Agarwal its gud.. q,s were from ages, alligation n mixtures,probability,venn diagrams, family relations(2-3 q,s were ther),calender,clocks n some more topics. Then comes the most easiest part odd man out...ex: question wud be....
n ask u whtr they r similar or not or if 2 r similar.. something like dis...ul get 5 q,s of this type.
then a puzzle giving many relationship then ask u 2 do some calculation(time consuming) then symbol subtitution in wch u wud get smethin like...if + is %,- is # then a#(b%d(f#g)) where a,b,d,f,g are so n so...
NOTE : PLS DON,T TAKE IT LIGHTLY.IT VL BE DEFINITLY EASY IF U DO SOME PRACTICE.
Finally an essay to be written in 5 min.. my topic was Indian politics. Try to put some saying here and ther, n write some gud points i.e u need not write unnecessarily 1 full page..evn if u write half a page tat shd b effective...then u can easily clear .n eassy topic vl b tld at d end..
Our test began at 9.25 it was for 1 hr..at d end thy gav essay topic wch was for 5 min.Later v were askd to wait 4 some time.. thy announced the result around 12:30. Appx 90 cleared out of 300 in my test room.
