    Hello friends, myself sriram pursuing my b_tech from CMR institute of technology in ece branch. I am delighted to share my experience. We had satyam campus recruitment at vardhaman coll of engg on 17th. This was my first attempt to any interview. I was calm and confident. About 1500 student were going to take the aptitude test. My first huddle was to clear the aptitude test.

    Aptitude test:

    It consisted of 15 questions (+1 for correct answer & - .25 for wrong) they are as follows:

    1)      Logical question about the arrangement of cards.

    2)      Blood Relation.

    3)      Pyramids.

    4)      C program o/p.

    5)      Age (father & son ).

    6)      Logical application question.

    7)      Speed & Distance.

    8)      Probability.

    9)      Passage (3).

    10)   Time & work

    11)   Compound interest.

    12)   Analytical question.

     If one is perfect with RS AGGARWAL he can easily get through aptitude. One thing my friend don?t attempt more than 10 questions. I don?t know exactly but satyam has an upper cutoff also. So try to keep it between7-10.


    Essay writing:

    About 350 students cleared the aptitude. We had a pre placement talk. After that we were asked to fill up our ?resume? & asked to write an essay. The topic given to me was

    ?Role of media in our society?, I wrote both the positive and negative effect of media.



    Interview was on 18th. Students were divided into two batch. I was in the morning session. My turn came at 10:30 . I kept myself as cool as possible. I kept on telling myself to give the best shot what ever the outcome may be. I was called in

    Me :  ( I was mentally struck, but got a point ). Yes sir I completely agree with u. But I Would like to tell u an example of ?Sakthiman?. A 12 year old child knows if see touch fire would burn. Then also see burnt herself as see thought her heros would come and save her.
