SATYAM  PAPER ON 16th FEBRUARY AT TRIVANDRUM

Hi friends, I?m Revathi , 6th sem, CSE, Amrita school of engineering.. I attended satyam campus interview held by SHREDS association, KERALA. 1st of all i wud like to thank my parents,teachers, placement papers.net, fresher's world.com for everything they hav given me

The Numbers:
No.of students attended : around 4000
No.of students got through written :
No.of students selected for satyam : 271

The recruitment process is of 2 stages:
1.written
2.interview

In written test the questions are 15 and duration is 30 min. the aptitude questions are easier than logical reasoning.But there were more reasoning questions & questions were very lenghthy........u need little practice beforehand..........else u find fearful to read them thinking u will loose ur time reading them...........but they are easy ones...provided u hav worked on thm before.....ma  experirnce is to start from last page..........there u will get some logical qns  together with  3,4 reasoning qns will let u crack it...............don't ever  blindly  mark the answers...........but some of ma frnds out of luck  blindly  got thru..........if u r soo  lucky  u cann......:-)
Topics to be learnt:
1. Probability
2.Time & work
3. Pyramids
4. Simple interest & compound interest
5. Profit & loss
6. Paragraph conclusions
7. Data sufficiency
9. Logical reasoning
10. Blood relations.
11. Ages.

for us 1,3,6,  were not included...........1 qn was there from series..............

NOTE: There is 1/4th negative marking in written test. It doesn?t have sectional cutoff but it has both lower cutoff & higher cutoff, for us it was around 7(lower). The questions were entirely different 4m those earlier papers posted here ,so make sure that u r well prepared. The questions were very lengthy. Time management is very important!!!!! I was able to attempt hardly 9 qns. But however I got through.

I felt like i'm soo  lucky...........and was not at all  prepared for  interview...............now i regret  ..........little  preparation would hav surely made me belong to satyam.........poor girl..........don't ever do it..............some of ma  close frnds didn't got through the apti.......we all prepared  togrther only..........seeing the qns paper they got tensed..............never do that...........it will b simple...........me was very cool.............don't ever get tensed............nothing more....

Below i'hav spotted the qns askd .........my ans  were not at all good.........i knew the concepts and was giving vague  ans........going around the bush...........so i don't give the answers.......no use for u  all............Before that  i would like to tell you something......it will all depend on the panel u get.......some were so friendly & only HR.....some were so  long ones...........mine was a mean person i would say........he was yawning all  over.AND never looking at face,,,,,,but it taught me a lott....overcome the stress  sections...i don't know is it because of ma ans.............hahahaaa..........prepare and goo.............u will surely get through.........

TECH/HR interview:
It was nearly 8pm in the evening when my turn came!!! It was very exhausting to wait for such a long time. I entered the room, praying to all kinds of Gods I knew.
HR: So u'r  Revathi  from Amrita..........
Hr: (went thru ma resume ) whats the topper of ur class score???
Hr: tell me the paper u got highest marks..........
Hr:then a series of qns...........
*virtual fns
*semaphores
*inline fns
*diff b/w structural & procedural lang
*inheritance(multiple)
*relational DB....primary key,,foriegn key

SO THE KEY IS CONFIDENCE, &  LITTLE PREPARTAION  ON THE BASICS  accordin to me. Be confident and win the race..

NEVER get  tensed..........donot avoid ur dear frnds  who don't get thru............find time to  consider thm alsoo............
ALL THE BEST......................ALL THE BEST.......................ALL THE BEST.............
Regards,
Revathi............
