No of ppl selected from our batch: 2

there were 4 girls and 6 boys

one guy immediately started the discussion without any introduction(hmm i thought of introducing myself but as it had been already started I recited) then two or three ppl started to argue then (I was the fourth) I had some good points so I have put forward but in mean while one guy(who initiated) started shouting at every one. No one was listening to any, so kept mum, every one is sayin "order in group" one guy was not giving any chance to others, After I put forward the strongest points I asked a girl who was tryin to speak to put forward her point and lated one guy asked me to speak(tryin to show his leadership skills i guess) then I talked for a while and asked some other to speak. every one was arguing and were blunt. It was total chaos I did'nt knew what to do 'cause if I shout it will have a negative impact if I dont no points will be awarded. so I have put many of my points I thought to every one especially those who were
listening.
Later the invigilator asked each one of us to conclude so every one had their chance. each one of us did that in a sentence One guy who did'nt allowed any one to speak did it in a paragraph :)  that was it.

Me and the guy who spoke long ie the paragraph guy were selected.

time of gd: 9.30

Those who were selected in GD were asked to fill a application(actually a resume in their format) of all the details.

==> third round was TECH & HR:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
the panel consisted of two one was a tech (senior member of technical team) and the other was a HR(member of HR team)

I was the second person to be interviewed, The Hr started by asking questions from the resume(so be clear with what u have mentioned in ur resume)
Later the tech guy asked abt my fav subjects so he has asked questions relating to that, and on project or s/w that I have developed. Hr asked abt my ambitions, what do u know abt satyam, and similar gen questions.
Tech guy brushed abt all subjects maily from c,c++,unix
Hr guy asked me to speak for two min abt the paper presentation which I have mentioned. and Hr asked abt some other details hobbies n stuff like that. Hr guy asked why I want to join satyam n any programs I have conducted. blah blah blah the interview had lasted for only 15 to 20 min.

they have said the results will be announced at 3 pm but it was 9:30Pm

after that the moment of my life which I have been waiting for came atlast, the final selected candidated were announced and there came my name and number it was a moment of triumph and bliss, we were asked to go into a room and wait. Later all the members from satyam cordially invited us into THE FAMILY OF SATYAM
they spoke abt few things of satyam(to my surprise they spoke the same things which i have told abt satyam in hr interview) and gave some details and conditions like pay scale contract period etc., etc., with a bid good bye! it was time for celebration.

so, guys it was really a gr8 exp. for me, it was my first interview and I am happy for getting through it. I have shared all my experiance as I thought it may be
