I'm Soumi De from Mallabhum Institute of Technology. I have got selected in Satyam after two more campussing (TCS & Infosys)..
It's easy to crack n satyam if u prepare urself in ryght way. It was a pooled on 29th feb on UIT, Burdwan, among 3 colleges.
There were 4 round:-
1. Apptitude test
2. Essay writing (not elimination round)
4. Technical round
1. Aptitude test:-
Sorry I cann't remember all the questions. but some are like this:-
A.question on pyramid series (little bit tough)
B.questions on ages
Den find d value 0f @@@*.(simply use binary concept)
E.the ratio of a,b,c will b 1:3:5.
Den what is d wright ans?
None of this
Third one is d right ans.
F.profit&loss;- a person buys 2 cloths by each of them at rs 1460/-.he sell 1st one at 20%profit and last one at 35% loss.find his net profit or loss in%.
G.sum on circular table.
H.rest is critical reasoning (just practice r.s agarwal,more than enough)
Remember don't try to guess any question, because there is (-)marking (.25) for each wrong ans. So, if u know d correct ans den do it, otherwise don't. don't do all d ans., there is upper cut_off also. I answered 8 questions out of 15. the time was 30mins. 400 students appeared for d test and only 72 have got selected.
2. Essay writing:-
Satyam always notices whether u r strong in English or not. they had a essay writing round. We were given 6 topics.
B.advantages of smoking
C.IPL makes mocry in cricket (this was my topic)
D.love marriage vs arrange marriage
Rest I cann't remember. 7mins. Were given to write the essay.
Sir was looking my essay at that time and asking questions on dat. don't make any grammatical mistake and spelling mistake. if u'r selected in hr then they'll give u permission to go in technical round.
As I'm a 3rd yr IT student, he was asking me on my subject. It was also a HR round + Technical round for me. He was asking me abt my parents, my bf, my hobbies, my (+)pt and(-) pt. be prepare in C, data structure, Java, OS (operating system) and present technology (they will see ur upto date knowledge) out of 72 only 29 were selected for both. lastly 23 were selected by them. don't get affraid. be calm and cool. always go with a pleasent smile. wish him just after entering the room. don't try to pretend, remember they can read u. if u don't know any ans just tell him. try to ask questions of that company (but don't ask the salary package). before going to campussing just prepare the basic questions
Describe urself except cv
Who is the chairman, board of directors?
World ranking. present share.(u can collect it from net)
Last but not the least don't get disappointed if u'r not selected, take preparation 4 the next.
