I am riju fm cochin university of science and technology. right now i am in semester 7. accenture visited our campus on 9th june 2005. they recruited 27 students fm here. Frankly saying fnds b4 got through this company i have failed in 5 companies. this was my 2nd interview.earlier i appeared in "caritor" interview. it was nice but i did't get selected. i do't know why. so i was fully prepared abt accenture. i had all the hr answers in my mind. my tech was superb.
fnd i am attaching my success story. it's not only my experience rather it'll help u a lot. thanks to Friends mam.. really fnds without this group i would have felt gr8 difficulties.
accenture 09-05-2005 (cochin university,cusat)
75 questions , 75 mins.
there was three different phase --->
(1) written exam
(3) techniqual interview
fnd there were 4 section in the written exam
(i) english section [15 questions]
(ii) aptitude [30 questions]
(iii) lang "c" [15 quests]
(iv) lang c++ [15 quests]
english sections -----------
question given here are just based on my memory, and may not be exactly
same .so just get the idea of the questions---
(i)_ university named with cusat is situated there.[ans-a]
(ii) we study in _university,rather in school.[ans-a]
(iii) mr riju works _ the supervision of mr ram.[ans-under]
like that 10 questions wr based on article and preposition.(2 synonyms and antonyms)
5 questions wr based on the comprehension.. that was not very hard. but i'll prefer to do it at last. cuz it was too much long, that waz time taking. so i solved it at last.
(2) this section included 30 questions from aptitude. those wr damn easy. and u will solve it. in just 30 mins may be less than that.
i think u can solve them within 25 mins.they were simple .
most of the problems wr frm ----
time and work
ratio and proportion
profit and loss
races and condition
time and distance
that's all. just try to solve it as quickly as possible. but do it carefully.
I solved all those questions except four. Try to revise
the R.S.Agarwal book (aptitude).
A man is standing on the platform. A train passes by him in a spped of 5km/hr and the length of the train is 100m. Calculate the time taken by the train to
cross the man.
Between 1 & 2, when the arms of the clock will coincide (hr and min arms).
(Formula: [(11*min)/2 - (30*hr)=0] ---> this is the eqn. If u will input hr, u will get the min as answer.
Data may be different....am just giving the pattern.
(3) 3rd sections was based on c. all were based on pointers. so i'll suggest u
to solve test yr c skill. if possible then solve the "exploring c" also.
this was also an easy section. all the 15 questions wr easy but they wr taking my time. so i was solving them fastly without caring whether they r correct or
wrong.but i tried all those question except 2 questions.
(4)c++ sections. actually in my college in computer science c++ was not in the syllabus. so i have been studying it since i got the news about accenture.
questions wr based on ----
alot of questions wr based on "this" operator.They used to make classes and
objects and inserted "this" pointer along with "&" and "||" operators. So make
ur concept on these things very strong.they wr too much long. i could hardly
read all the questions.
this section was damn tough. i could hardly solve 3 questions correctly. but
those were correct. and abt rest i just ticked "c" option.it was really short
of time there.
i will suggest u to solve it at last. but atleast try to solve 3 or 4 questions and if u want to do better in this section then go for test yr C++ skills and go through correctly bcuz i heard some of my fnds did't get selected cuz they left this sections untouched.
one more important thing---there is individual cutoff in each section of written
test.so be careful. do not let any section untouched.
one more thing, never hesitate to tick all the questions.There waz no negative marking. so even if u r not very sure, u can make guesses.
fnds this was very crucial one.they will ask u a lot of questions abt yr family
etc. but fnds be carefull abt yr
academic drop year. they will be seeking for a peculiar reason. frankly saying
I had three years gaps between +2 and eng. so i made a ful proof reason
and just mug it up. i told her everything which i had prepared. and really it
worked well. she got satisfied.i was very confident and u shd be there with a lot confidence and enthusiasm.show yr genuine interest in their company with regarding data .
rest were simple questions like--
what will u want to improve in yrself?
wt r u doing to overcome yr weaknesses.?
but do't get nervous. in this area u have to make a difference. ther r
very supportive. one more important thing fnds.. i think there was a specific panel there . and that panel did't select any candidate.so it depends on yr luck.
FNDS. it totally depends on yr knowledge. they will ask u simple and
they asked me only 2 questions.
(1) u have several attributes. like.. employee no,employee name, employee id,supervisor no, supervisor name, months, no of days remained,
so the question was to make a normalized relationship schema.
(2) just print the numbers in reverse order fm 1 to 100 .. that satisfy n mod 2=0
so i gave answers to all those 2 questions correctly. but my fnds told
me that they asked a lot of questions to them.well so fnds best of luck.
