    Accenture is  largest consulting firm of the world,

     
    Hi Friends, my name is Siddharth Walia, and student of MCA from Gndu, Amritsar Accenture visited our campus on 16th, 17th Dec and selected 98 students finally with 130 clearing the test, and i luckily i was one of them, selection procedure
     
    Selection format has changed. No group discussion this time, instead written is harder.
     
    1) Online test (aptitude+english+analytical)
    2) Technical interview.
    3) HR interview.
     
    (Online test)

    Conducted by aspiring minds company, so check out AMCAT all the question papers. Thing to note is you can't go back to questions after you have you attempted, so you have attempt all the questions sequentially and managing time accordingly.

    Paper consisted of 75 questions (25 English +25 Aptitude + 25 Quantitative)

    English part (25 questions, 25 minutes)
     
    * Pretty basic english
    * Synonyms and antonyms

    Basic prepostions, no use of mugging papers, just study the concept of SVA(subject verb agreement)

    * Plus basic vocab (do it from Barrons) English was really helpfull in case quantitative goes wrong (my case).
    So do comprehension from barrons or any GRE book.
    Some of the words.
    Obscurist
    Guile
    Innocous
    Irrascible
    Nefarious

    Practice comprehension. You'll be good to go.

    Quantitative part (25 questions, 35 minutes)
    This is was the tough part.
    Mainly questions were concentrated around few topics

    Which are
    1) Log ex changing base of log and then asking the values of simple logs log(base 4)10? (i was shocked too, as i hadn't done log questions, there were 5 or 6 log questions, so be prepared)
    2) Probablity (4 questions)
    3) Permutation and combination (prepare for R.S. Aggarwal) direct questions.
    Socks questions (4 white, 5 blue, 6 yellow, find probability of finding pairs of same color)

    Other topics were evenly distributed ratio, percentage, distances.

    Analytical
    * Its d scoring part. Prepare letter series, numbers series.
    Directions question (4 questions)
    Jumbled words.
    Truth false logic.
    Deduce and infer questions.
     

    Please don't mug questions/answer, know the concept, because values of questions are always changed, do less but do thorough.
     
    I got through written, i was one of 13 out 70 selccted from batch one, total 7 batches, 450 students approx, 140 cleared the written.

    Technical Interview: 
     
    Pretty easy one just tell your areas of interest. Guide the interviewer. Don't let go above your head.

    I wrote my field of interest as SQL question

    3) What are various factors of concurrency?

    I answered prety quicky.

    5) What joins and views?
    6) Types of joins?
     
    I also didn't knew all the answers, tell them frankly, you dnt know about it, you can't fool them.
    otherwise guy was cool, 8-9 questions (approximates 10 minutes, (far better than TCS, 25 minutes long interview)
     
    Got selected in technical round

    HR Interview:

    This one was tricky.
    HR interviewer was female and very competent, they check your confidence and stress coping abilties here.
