    ques were not easy at was pretty high standard....u have to be thorough will R.S Agarwal both for quants and LR....but yes u should also be COOL headed nd think INTELLIGENTLY b4 sitting 4 d paper....coz dey jst check 4 ur intelligence....

    ques were 4m topics such as
    1)their were 4 ques on puzzle was easy but time consuming
    2)simple interest (easy one)
    3)prob on trains
    4)series(one 4m no. series and one non verbal)...both were not very easy...

    a)25/2% gain
    b)25/2% loss
    c)no loss or gain
    answr-e (none) 

    be careful b4 chosin ur option...they have negative markings also(1/4th)...Time Management is very very important d results were announced 4 the round and out of 200 students 48 were selected...much to my surprize i was one of dem.. 

    den their was an essay writing round..this is not an elimination round...dey r just checkin ur grammer,ur basic knowledge of english and how much u r aware of d outside world...ques in hr round are asked 4m ur write neatly in good handwriting and make sure their are no grammatical or spelling mistakes in ur essay..

    topics were
    a) role of women in modern india
    b) love vs arrange marriage (my topic)
    c) advantage of smoking
    d) should cricket be lessend in order to promote other sports

    we were given 5 min to write on was fun 

    then i was called 4 hr round....the hr was a man 4m army who recently joined satyam...he was very sweet and i was not nervous..he asked me ques only 4m my essay as i had written for love marriage....he tried to move me away 4m my point but i did not...he gave me all good arguments for arrange marriage..dont ever be harsh with ur words...put ur points in GENTLE words..i was very polite and calm even though he tried to make me angry...

    dat impressed him(i guess)...jst be CALM nd plz BE URSELF...nd never try to HONEST and CONFIDENT.. out of 48 students 29 cleared the hr round nd by god's grace i was of of dem.... den was my technical round... it was a cakewalk 4 me....the technical person was very very cool and calm he just asked my intro,and some ques on my tech intrnw lasted for only 5 min...

    i think a PROJECT in ur cv is alwz a ADDED changes d focus of d make sure dat u knw every small details of ur don worry if u dont have one..jst prepare well d subjects u r writing in ur cv.. d results were declared at 9.30p.m and out of 29 students,19 were selected finally... by god's grace, i am a SATYAMITE study hard and pray harder....its d game of luck...

    ALL D BEST!!!!!!!!!
