I was lucky becoz i had all the 3...sighhh..First they started with the basic Hr questions:Intoduce urself...Hobbies...Etc...

Then the started the Tech questions:
Basic questions from OOP , C/C++, Mini Project ,DBMS, Data structure, OS and LSD.....they may ask u write small programs....

Just study the basics of the above mentioned topics....be confident wen u speak....Dont bluff...if u dont know say that  frankly....Look at the Hrs eyes and speak.But if u r not good in ur subject...its sure that u will be rejected..they r looking for tech skills..extra cirricular activites are not much important..

Then for me another man came suddenly and started stress interview..first i couldnt follow what is happening around me..but slowly i realised...I just fixed a smile in my face....They will try to make u angry, but plzz dont oppose them
Answer to their questions with patience...and a pleasant face...(this is wat i did) and at last the panel member appreciated me...)

The results were announced after 1 hr...97 were selected and i was one among them( thank GOD!!!)...at last i did...."ALL THE BEST TO ALL MY FRIENDS" we can meet at SATYAM.....
