SYNTEL PAPER ON 23rd JUNE
hello frendz,am GAURAV NANDA from UIET,kanpur and got placed in SYNTEL on sunday 24/06. There were around 1200-1500 students of which around 60 were chosen for next phase n some 30 finally made their way to syntel.
we were supposed to report at 8:30 n were expecting the written to commence from 10 or so. No hall-tickets were isuued so we had to collect the reference no. There was a total chaos n the arrangement made by college was not upto the mark.The refernce allotment got over by 10:30 n we were told to evacuate the building(mismanagement again).We finally entered our respective classes around 11:30 n the writen exam finally began at 1pm.
The paper had 2 sections,one after the other
SECTION 1: GENERAL APTITUDE
there were 5 ques with 5 subparts each
1) a very simple ques on BLOOD RELATIONS
2)some conditions like experience,qualifications,domicile) for various posts(director,manager etc) followed by 5 persons with diff. satisfying criteria,we simply had to
answer their deserving posts (the ques had complex looks bt was pretty simple)
3)a quest on CODING DECODING
3 words along with some coding were given we had to identify the corresponding coded alphabet for some characters (was easy but i got stuck in one of the subparts,ws ambigous)
4) 5 quest with 4 english statements each were given n we had to classify each as
b) supporting reason
c) counter logic
it was for the first time i encountered such quest so took me time to tackle it
