FLEXTRONICS PAPER - MAY 2005

Hai all,
Here is the Hughes Paper( now FLEXTRONICS). There are two sections of the written test. First is the general aptitude test(30 ques) (generally it is the quantitative aptitude . R.S. Agrawal (non-verbal and quantitative) should be done.
Second is the technical section(u can attempt either electronics or computer one). There are good C, C++, Java questions in the Computer section and microprocessor, computer architecture and C, Java questions in Electronics section.

They declare the result within an hour or two. Then the interview is as per the schedule. The interview is the technical one. They ask C, C++, datastructures questions and final year project in detail.

It consist of two section part A and B or C
For CSE student part A & B is better.
Here i am writting some Questions from part A and B for CSE student

Regarding Hughes
paper they conducted two tests. Both were technical(no aptitude test).  First one was compulsory for everybody. In second one could opt for electronics or computers. In all i suppose there were 50 questions.  And just before interview you were supposed to fill up a performa which they call Behavioural Test. This was to check you interpersonal skills and socialising capabilities. Questions like - would you like to be elected leaders of organising committees, do you like peoply express their agonies to you, do you wish people be close to you type questions were repeated in one and the other form.

Interview was technical as well as personal. CGPA did count - it seems.
They selected 8 people from here. BTW what's your current CGPA and what's
the strength of your class. Do they come for B.Tech and M.Tech separatel
as the case here is or it's all at once.
