     The recruitment process consisted of 3 rounds.
    1. Written test
    2. Group Discussion
    3. Interview

    1. Written test was of 30 minutes, 15 questions. +1 or
    -1/4 (negative correction was there)
    The paper was of Logical Aptitude
    Some questions were very easy like-
    one-third of a number is also half. (Ans.3/2)
    arranging the sentences in a sequence.
    counting the number of a's, b's, i's etc in a sentence
    decoding the codes.(some numbers and corresponding
    letters for them will be given - very easy - new code
    and old codes will be there)
    5 ltr and 3 ltr, will be there 4 ltr has to be
    Some questions were confusing. Don't attempt the
    questions if u r not sure.

    I think for this paper, you can't have a book to
    refer. It depends on how u analyse the questions at
    that time. Be cool, don't get tensed.

    2.Group Discussion for those who clear the test.
    I got the topic-"Why is Indian Hockey limping"
    You have to speak and tell something different(
    hightlight a point which is not made by other members
    of the group). I think they see leadership quality, 
    Taking Initiative etc.

    I came to know the two other topics, which were -
    "UN's peace activities" and "America's war on Iraq".

    If u clear this round u will move on to interview.

    3. It consists of HR and technical interview.- both
    will be held at the same time by two people
    In HR interview they ask questions like - tell about
    yourself, your parents, brothers, sisters. why should
    I recruit u?, What r your interests, hobbies-quesitons
    on that.

    In technical interview I was asked questions on -
    circular linked list, OOPs features(encapsulation,
    inheritance etc.), How a C program will be executed?
    (First preprocessing, compiling etc.), Difference
    between Java and C++, about bite code, threads and
    process, applets, Virtual functions, abstract class,
    public, private, protected, etc. 

    I heard that some people were asked questions on
    DBMS, microprocessors, C, OS

    Questions on your project.

    While answering be confident, if don't know the answer
    admit frankly.
    Lot of people were asking me abt online test.
    I didn't have any such test.I'll try to find out if they've changed the pattern and inform you guys.
    I'm from JNTU Kakinada.We had a Campus test conducted by Satyam for about 5-6 colleges at Hyderabad on 31 May.
    There were 4 phases in toto:
    Written test(flow charts etc>> very easy..almost every one got thru)
    The written test mostly comprised of simple flow charts.There were 30 q's and 30 mins. There were about 10 q's from arithmetic..One question was 
    there is enough food stocks for 30 people to last for 30 days..5 people left after 5 days and 10 joined after 5 more days.For How many days will the stocks last?
    Technical Interview
    Personal Interview
    Later parts of elimination were tough.People were eliminated even in the fourth phase.Hope this info would be helpful.
