NOTE: There is 1/4th negative marking in written test. It doesn?t have sectional cutoff but it has both lower cutoff & higher cutoff, for us it was around 7(lower). The questions were entirely different 4m those earlier papers posted here ,so make sure that u r well prepared. The questions were very lengthy. Time management is very important!!!!! I was able to attempt hardly 87qns. But however I got through.then there was the round of essay writing.my topic was'beauty contest degrade women'.we were asked to write 300-350 words in 5 min.there were several other topics loks 'advantages of smoking' and etc.frnds be prepared with all  current affairs.

TECH/HR interview
HR AND TECHNICAL WERE SEPERATE ROUNDS.FIRST HR WAS HELD.AFTER GETTING THROUGH HR U CAN APPEAR FOR TECHNICAL.THEY ONLY SEE UR ENGLISH,POWER OF REASONING AND BODY LANGUAGE.
Hr: So, where do we start? Me: (confidently) Where ever you like! Sir(with a big smile).
Me: I told him C & C++. Hr: C? interesting, then write a program for calculating the Compound interest.(He gave the reqd data).
Me: Surely sir.(I rememberd only the formula which I had studied the day before, Luckily) I wrote the pgm and showed to him.
Hr: Oh, you done with it? Let me see.( I showed the paper)
Me: Explained the logic & most importantly I WAS VERY CONFIDENT!!
Hr: Your interview is over, you can go!!
Me: (Shocked) Sir, I have some questions for you..
Hr: No, I?ll clarify later, you please leave.

there were many other questions I DONT REMEMBER.

I thanked him and left, in confusion and uncertainty. I told all my friends that I am gone.So, the results were to be announced... MY NAME WAS ANNOUNCED.   FINALLY I WAS SELECTED, I REALISED LATER THAT IT WAS MY CONFIDENCE THAT GOT ME THROUGH .. FINALLY I?M A SATYAMITE!!!. HAPPINESS ALL OVER.. SO THE KEY IS CONFIDENCE, accordin to me. Be confident and win the race..
