The online test conducted was composed of 2 sections i.e., Aptitude & Technical section. The aptitude section was further divided into 3 sub sections viz., verbal , analytical(logical reasoning) & quantitative ability. The aptitude part consisted of 75 questions , 25 questions of each section which to be solved in 60 minutes. An important thing to remember was that there was separate sectional cut-off for each section. So what matters is that even if you solve most of the questions correctly but not able to clear the sectional cut off then its of no use. Keep in mind to try and solve at least certain minimum no. of questions correctly from each sections. One must possess the skill of which one to do & which one not to.The technical questions were more of information type than to solve. It consisted of 45 questions & to be solved within 30 mins. The good part of the test was that there was no negative marking. Calmness is the pre- requisite for test.
After the test is done they shortlist almost one third of the students for the further round i.e. GD . They normally divide in group of 10 students for groups of GD. The topic was pretty wierd viz., Retirement age of a Politician. They normally judge you on 3-4 things such as communication(clear & cogent) , Team Spirit & Innovative / creative streak. First 5 minutes were given to you to jot down your ideas then 20 minutes discussion & last 5 minutes in which each one has to individually conclude the topic one by one. There is no elimination after this round but its marks will added to next round for selection.
There is no need to carry any resume or certificates for interview process. They give you a 4 page form which literally contain every single detail of yours .Most of the questions were asked based on that only.The Interview was partially technical as well as it had HR questions too. The Interview started with tell me about yourself , you have to reflect your strenghts and qualities. Mostly they will ask you depending on that only by picking certain part of it. Mention about your internships and all. They have asked me technical questions on thermodynamics and pumps. My intern was also based on topic related to pumps. They asked me about my strenghts and literally tried to trick me their.You just need to be firm and confident about whatever you have spoken. The HR questions were mostly on general topics such as my views about multitasking, define success on your terms, views about moral and ethics and some tricky questions which they ask you to check your genuinity. Some questions to your reactions on certain situations in order to judge you. Try to remain calm and confident. Rest is Impulsive.
