    Hi, SATYAM came for the 1st time in our collage this year. We were  about 160 eligible candidates (criteria may be  60% + in 10,12 & DOB>86), out of which 58 cleared Aptitude,     finally 25 of us got selected as 'Satyamite'..

    It had 4 rounds Aptitude ,essay writing, HR & technical.

    As Satyam 's Aptitude as -1/4 -ve marking , so be a bit careful . Although it looks different from others , all can be easily worked out .... just keep ur cool.

    Just go through these topics like Probability, Time & work, Pyramids, SI/CI, Profit & loss, law of allegations,

    Paragraph conclusions, Data sufficiency, Logical reasoning, Blood relations. Ages..puzzles, charts , etc.

    It probably had upper cut off of 11. I am not quiet sure about it. 

    Essay :- Sort listed students from apti round were to write an esaay of approx. 300 words on given topics. We had topics like " Its time to bury our Hockey", "Rapists should be hanged", "Adv. of smoking ", .......

    My advice is write correct, clear english & try to fill up the paper . Always include starting & concluding sentence (very imp.) & try to write either for or against , on one side. keep clean, good handwritting. 

    HR :- It was another cool round. They asked about relocation , my life so far, didnt asked anything from essay.  He asked me what will i do if I have 2 jobs . I just said first U offer me this job & then I will have a 14 months time to decide.  Keep a smiling face. My HR was of some 3-4 min. or so. Just before Technical  round, my HR interviewer offered me some sweet ...... Ha Ha Ha. 

    Technical :- It was another funny round. First they asked me to wait for a min. May be having something. This time they didnt offered anything.  then they asked me what i dont know. Simply said I dont know  ....... just went on to say almost everything in course. .

    Then they gave me a choice - What should they ask me or they will asked everything in physics upto Class 12. just adjust them diplomatically. then they asked about lever, pulley, their types , examples ..... just like SRK's 'panchwi class tak' show.

    then something about OS, Unix like diff. between Unix & linux, which OS U use, why. what is shell. about progs done in lab.

    Dont try to fool them . One of my interviewer was a ex-student from WBUT. So they always know the course.

    Prototype of printf ? how to compile C progs in Linux., bytecode, What is OOPs, JVM .   

    Finally they gave me a C code  to solve :-
     if ( ..... exp  ...)
    printf ("World")
    printf ("Hello") 

    To get output as "HelloWorld" ... what is  exp ?  ans - printf("Hello"). It was really cool round . Dont panic even if U dont know anything.

    In the evening final selected candidates were announced.  Gave a small lecture again .....................

    Finally I am a Satyam-ite. Hope to see U in about 14 months time.  & Best of Luck.

    Oooh  ... Satyam is the official IT partner of  FIFA World Cup of SA(2010) & Brazil(2014). Lets hope myself as an employee will get tickets for WC Matches ..... So enjoy
