ROUND 1 WRITTEN TEST
i had my written test on 5th feb.\ the test was of 1 hour...90 questions. it was divided into 3 sections.
Analytical reasoning(18 Q),
Quantitive aptitude(32 Q),
each section was having its individual cut-off and you need to clear the cut off of three sections to move in the next section thers no negative marking. the section which is toughest has the lowest cutoff. so better attempt all questions. and a prt of that section on your own. so you can take away the cutoff. manage your time so that you can give equal time to all 3 sections. and attempt atleast 30-40% questions in each section on your own in each section.
overall out of 200+ only 59 could make it to the next round.
ROUND 2 GROUP DISCUSSION
well i had the GD round after waiting for around 5-6 hours of written test. GD is simple. all you need to is just follow all the GD norms. the people at US TECH are real nice. they just tried to make a cool and friendly environment before GD so that all students feel comfortable.
GD was around 8 minutes.
we get the topic "Cinematic Dance Should be banned in college Campus" other batches also get some easy ones like "reservation", "big & small", "big & small company" all you need to show is your communication skills and how you represent your knowledge. they check your confidence level and leadership qualities. just speak 4-5 times and a valid point can take you to the next level.
out of 59 only 25 were selected for the interview.
