SYNTEL PAPER ON 14th JULY
Hi friends, My name is Gabriel Oliver Washington from C.Abdul Hakeem College of Engineering and Technology, Vellore TN,pusuing my B.Tech IT
I was selected in Syntel through the off campus at Arunai Engineering College. There were about 8 colleges participating and around 600 candidates. Around 40 candidates were selected(not sure) 7 from our college.
Our interview process had 3 stages
1.Logical & English
Logical & Reasoning:
This round in syntel is a bit difficult compared to other written papers as it does,nt have any aptitude and u hav nothin to work with formulas. You have 25 Qs from Logical(Verbal & Non Verbal)Reasoning , 15 Qs from English
R.S Agarwal Verbal & Non Verbal Reasoning book is more than enough.
Topics u need to prepare:
LOGICAL PART: analogy, classification, series completion, coding & decoding, Blood Relations, puzzle test, Syllogism,analytical Reasoning
ENGLISH: Antonymns, Synonymns, Find the Gramatical error, Complete the sentence.
I did,nt hav Qs from all these topics but these r the topics u can expect in ur written test.
Test Duration is 1 hour. Type - filling the omr sheet
Time management is very important.
Practice all type of problems as it takes u more time to solve cos these are not aptitude type Qs. After the Written Test about 2 hrs Later the results were anounced. My name was the last one to be read out. Then The PPT was conducted and presented about their company,s vision, mission, customers, the training, salary, bond ect. We were said that we had to sign a bond of 2 yrs for a pay of 2.6 lacs PA. Later we were given a HR form to be filled were u enter personal information and Key skills. U can expect Qs from key skills.
Te HR round was very easy for me.

I Dint prepare tech that deep so I walked in nervous. But Qs were easy but still cudnt cum out with ans b,cos of nervousness. Later aftr 4 Qs i was confident & answered. My tech Interview performance was not that good even though I got selected.
Its Important to know that they look out for good communication skills.
One last tip : One of my best friends who has an Excellent Academic Perfomance & good communication skills was out in HR round just of 1 reason.
He was caught in a Q - who is ur role model?
He answered Bill Gates and the interviewer started firing Qs about Bill Gates, and he got caught in aQ - Wat was the latest award he got? The interviewer asked him cant u keep urself well informed about ur role model and he was out .
So better tell a person whom u r confident abt or else opt for options like 10th maths ma,am, My Uncle ,DAD ect.. noting down a few success and good characters.
