Myself Sriram pursuing my b_tech from CMR institute of technology in ece branch. I am delighted to share my experience. We had Satyam campus recruitment at Vardhaman coll of engg on 17th. This was my first attempt to any interview. I was calm and confident. About 1500 student were going to take the aptitude test. My first hurdle was to clear the aptitude test.
It consisted of 15 questions (+1 for correct answer & - .25 for wrong) they are as follows:
1) Logical question about the arrangement of cards.
2) Blood Relation.
4) C program o/p.
5) Age (father & son ).
6) Logical application question.
7) Speed & Distance.
9) Passage (3).
10) Time & work
11) Compound interest.
12) Analytical question.
If one is perfect with RS AGGARWAL he can easily get through aptitude. One thing my friend don't attempt more than 10 questions. I don't know exactly but Satyam has an upper cutoff also. So try to keep it between7-10.
About 350 students cleared the aptitude. We had a pre placement talk. After that we were asked to fill up our 'resume' & asked to write an essay. The topic given to me was 'Role of media in our society', I wrote both the positive and negative effect of media.
Interview was on 18th. Students were divided into two batch. I was in the morning session. My turn came at 10:30. I kept myself as cool as possible. I kept on telling myself to give the best shot what ever the outcome may be. I was called in

Me : (I was mentally struck, but got a point). Yes sir I completely agree with u. But I Would like to tell u an example of 'Sakthiman'. A 12 year old child knows if she touch fire would burn. Then also she burnt herself as she thought her heros would come and save her.
