The test consisted 30 mins of Technical section and 60 mins of Aptitude, Verbal Reasoning and LRDI. The technical section had questions from basic Mechanical Engg. subjects like SOM, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and MP. The level of questions were adequate, given the knowledge of 3rd year student. You can practice from Indiabix, pariksha.com and common books of general aptitude.
The shortlisted students from test appeared for GD. It was a non- elimination round since the scores were noted for each round. The topics were general, like Global warming and Future of Electric vehicles in India. There were 5 candidates in one group. In GD , it is important to go by the format of introduction, facts & opinions and conclusion. Listen to your colleagues while they put up their points and add accordingly so that GD proceeds in a smooth way.
The written test included passage writing, just to test the writing skills and thought-process of the candidate. While in interview, you maybe asked about your views, hence justify well whatever you write.
As most of the interviews start with 'Tell me about yourself', this one went by the same. The candidates were asked to fill a Personal Data form, which included education, family background achievements, hobbies, strengths, views, etc. Hence the interview mostly goes from the Personal Data form, along with some technical questions on basics and favourite subject. Rest it is about internships, projects and co-curricular activities. The interview being a combined one (Technical and HR), the panelists get an overall view of the candidate.
Firstly, always maintain composure while appearing for any company.
Do ask questions about the company in PPTs.
Always find positives and learning areas , whatever maybe the outcome at the end of the day.
