    HI Friends. I am ARUSH TOKALA from Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology. I would like to share my experience at Satyam.  

    1st Round ? Aptitude Round:           
    This round consists of 15 questions all carrying equal marks. And every wrong answer carries a negative mark. So friends only answer those questions which u r
    confident.  I knew only 6 to 7 answers so made up my mind n went ahead with em. I dint even put a single guess for the remaining questions.
    The topics on which the questions were asked are:
    1. Calendar
    2. Time & Distance
    3. Time & Work
    4. Probability
    5. Pipes & cisterns
    6. Ages
    7. Logical Diagrams
    8. Data Interpretation

    I was really lucky tat day. Some how got thru this round for 1st time after losing for infosys and wipro in 1st round itself.

    2nd Round ? Group Discussion:
    This round ws held on the next day. I came prepared very well. Actually started speaking in English rite after I came to know tat I cleared the 1st round. This had helpec me a lot. Spoke in English n English only with all my frnz till the commencement of the GD round. This had boosted my confidence levels. Finally the time came wen 10 of us were given a topic nd had to wind it up in 15 minutes.

    The topic was:   ? DOES SANIA MIRZA NEED A MEDIA HIPE?
    I confidently stood up and initiated the round by opposing the statement. In the beginning ws a lil shivery but some how spoke loud n clear.     
    After that I took part in the discussion 3 to 4 times to express my views. Most of them were supporting the statmnt and were repeatedly trying to put counters on me. Some how I managed convincing them givning examples. 
    The round ws finally done and all of us were asked to conclude individually. Then the time came wen the results were to b announced. I  was confident that I will get thru. And among ten of us only 4 were selected. I ws happy to find my name in tat list.

    3rd Round ? Technical and HR (combined):
     This round was supposed to b held on the 3rd day. But to my surprise it was about to begin rite after v got our GD results. I became very nervous. My hands n legs started shivering wen I ws shown the way to the HR room. I dint remember even a single concept of my Mechanical Eng.

    Fear ws my enemy. I ws called in. Just before I entered the room took a deep breath and prepared myself for the worst.   I then walked in confidently with my shoulders and spine straight. I  wished him ? Good Morning SIR? but immediately realized its half past 12.00 I dint bother. He asked ? Tell me about yourself ?. I strted shivering once again. But gave him a prompt answer by telling all the stuff written in my RESUME.

    The HR was noticing all my moves. He then asked me ? So Arush, being  a mech student do u think u can cope up with IT?? I said ? Sir mechanical engg is the only branch which deals with all other branches  of engg. by giving us a fundamental knowledge about them.

    He then asked whether I know any softwares. I gave a frank reply saying tat I know few mechanical related softwares. He repeatedly asked any other sofwares other than these. Actually he was expecting me to speak some thing about C, C++ and Java. I dint outer an alphabet of C frm my mouth.

    Finally he asked me to define SEX..?? A strange question isn?t it.. I dint know wat to reply. But suddenly told him tat ? It is the difference b/w two species based on their physical characteristics. He was impressed with the answer. And told me tat I can leave.

    I dint expect the round to get over so fast. It lasted for less than 10 mins.Our results were finally announced after 6 long hrs of nail biting. Finally my name was announced along with others. I was very happy. A memorable day in my whole life.

    A Total of 1600 students appeared and finally only 61 of em got selected into the company.
