I'm a 6th SEM student of Electronics & Telecomm. There was a campus drive by Satyam on 7th & 8th April 2007 at Bhubaneswar, Orissa. The process involved 3 stages: Written, GD, PI (both tech & HR)
Paper consisted General aptitude & reasoning. There was 15 Qn each carrying 1 mark and for every wrong ans negative marking of 1/4. You have to do these in 30 mins. I've forgotten all the Qn, but what I can recall I'm writing it below which is 80% correct:
p q r
l m n o
g h i j k
a b c d e f
A pyramid was given like upper and the value of a, b, c ...r, s, t were given and Qn was Value of X=?
Soln: g=(a+b)+2, h=(b+c)+2,.............similarly for I,j,k
l= (g+h) +7, m= (h+i) +7 ....similarly for n, o
p= (l+m) +12, q= (m+n) +12 ... similarly for r
s= (p+q) +17, t= (q+r) +17
Finally X=(s+t) +22
2] A series was given: 3, 15, 21, 27 There was relation between 1st, 3rd, 5th and we've to find the 7th one I've forgotten the 2nd, 4th....nos. which is not required.

Hints: It is like binary digit conversion and u do it. It's very easy.
I did 11 Qns out of which I was not sure that two of them correct or not.
I was selected for GD round. They invited us to a room where they show us the videos of different offices of Satyam allover the countries and employees working there who "THINK & FEEL LIKE CEO". Then they divide the students in a no. of groups consisting of 10 students in each group from different colleges randomly. GD topics were so easy which we had not expected like "Remix and Original", "love marriage or arrange marriage", "Marriages are made in heaven" etc.
In our group we were asked for which kind of topic we'll prefer whether education, fun type or any thing else. We told fun type. As the topic was so easy that 'Remix Vs Original' everybody tried to speak and made it fish market. At last when results were announced my name was not there.
Okay Best of luck and I hope u will not face situation like me......
