My name is Pranjal Paliwal. Currently I am pursuing b.tech in mechanical engineering (6th sem) FROM HINDUSTAN COLLEGE OF SCIENCE & TECH. I went through the Satyam recruitment process recently on 28th April at my clg Hindustan college of science and technology (Mathura) which is my college. By God's grace, I was able to make through the final list and now I am a proud to be Satyammate.
Friends this is my 5th company previously I am able to crack infy, l&t infotech, tcs but failed at hr. Therefore I only suggest you that believe in Yourself, because a +ve attitude is driving force for any recrt. Process and believe it will also help you till hr section
This website helped me a lot to get through the process and I think, I would be glad if I can contribute a bit from my side too. There was pool campus in which around 1200 candidates 4rm 12 college appeared…..out of which 236 were selected for the second round. And finally 82
As u all of know that Satyam aptitude paper consists of 15 question and duration is 30 min, the cut off is usually 7, remember there is negative marking so do not try to attempt all question. apti section is damn easy. I am sure that a person with basic knowledge can easily get through
Most of the questions were solvable if one has done Quantitative Aptitude by R.S.Agarwal. Make sure, you attempt only those questions which are you damn sure of. Don make too many blind guesses. Usually, the cutoff ranges between 6 to 8, and attempting 7-9 questions with full confidence will get you in.
Here are some of the question s that are asked:
1. what is the day of 16th july 1776. ans. Tuesday go through rs aggrawal calendar 4r that
2. 5,10,15,7,14,_,8,16,24 ans.21
3. compound interest problem like what is ci on 7500 at 4% for 2 year. Ans . 612
4. data interpretation problem
5. data sufficiency problem like
what is the area of triangle
1. sum of two sides are given
2. perimeter is given
ans. 1 and 2nd both are required to give a ans
6.a paragraph regarding food adulteration and quality management is given easy to derive conclusion
7. triangle puzzle
172 218 284
74 94 120 160 ans:904
sol: simple just add the two nos. below any no. and add another 4 to them u will get the upper no.
(74+94+4=172, 94+120+4=218, 120+160+4=284, 172+218+4=394, 218+284+4=506)so ans is 394+506+4=904
8. 5 men do work in H hours ,then m men do that in what time?
Ans. 5h/m since men and hours are inversely proportional 5:m=?/h=5h/m
9. an average question is given regarding the age of 5 person in a family is 7 and now 2 duo childrens are born and average remains unchanged
then what is age of children?
That’s what I remember in apti section
Group Discussion round
All the 236 candidates were called for GD and PI round. The GD is called not as Group Discussion but Group Dynamics round in Satyam. I hope that tells us, as to what we are supposed to do in that round. The point is not only to speak good on a topic or good communication skills. They count as well as how you behave in the group, giving others a chance, encouraging others, making a space for yourself, emerging as a leader yet being a part of the group. my gd begins at 4.00 pm
GD's were conducted in groups of 10, and lasted for 10 minutes on an average.
Following are some tips to crack gd:
1. do pre placement talk with the guys u are going in gd. it helps to feel comfortable with them
2. there is wide rumors that try to initiate ya it helps only 4r those who have good contents to start
3. I prefer to start at 3rd or 4th position because at that time u have good points
4. try to give chance to everyone
5. don’t create fish market
my gd topic is “How can we control child labour”?
I have given strong points like removing illiteracy, providing education at primary as well as higher, ngo and govt come forward
The person who appreciate my ideas also get selected so never condemn ideas, they are looking for a person having leadership qualities
At the end try to give conclusion
at 6:00 pm gd results are out, we are informed to gather at media hall to fill forms “please note that u have only 1 year gap Because around 38 peoples are rejected just 4 that” so please confirm all terms and condition Because it is too harassing to be eliminated at that time. I filled form too early therefore my interview call at 3rd number My hr person is very cool
