ESSAY WRITING( not an elimination round)
TECHNICAL cum HR INTERVIEW
The paper comprised of 3 sections
The verbal section was damn easy.consisted of simple synonyms, antonyms (as simple as give the antonym for come i.e. go), fill with suitable prepositions, etc. This is the section, which is given utmost importance, & they even decide selection of the candidate based on his/her score in this section.
The quantitative section was a bit tough included topics like time & distance, work & time, etc. It requires constant practice dats it.
The LR section was also simple with blood relations, coding , odd one out ,etc
Total questions were 50 & time alloted was 45 min with sectional cut-off. Though I did well in verbal and LR but was not sure with quanti. Since there was sectional cut-off dat made matters worse!!! Results of the aptitude test were declared at 8 p.m and luckily I had cleared it. Then immediately we had to write a paragraph on a topic given to us (thy jst want to check how u put your ideas on paper). The topic was MY HOBBIES. It was not an elimination round and we were asked to appear for the interview the next day.
Day 2 was the longest day in my life filled with hopes, aspirations, fear, anxiety et all!!!!!! God can never forget 26/03/2008
