    Microsoft GSC test on 15th/2005 at Mumbai

    There were four sections. All were separate. The time alloted as well as the question papers also were separate for each section.

    Section I : English language test - 25 Qstns.- 20Mints.

    It contained usual & easy english language qustns.
    like prepositions, articles, antonyms-synonyms etc.
    There were two paragraphs. One was about types of
    networks & another was about CGI scripting. There were
    some easy qstns. asking info. from the para.

    Section II : Mental ability - 25 Qstns.- 30 Mints.

    It contained qstns. related to union & intersection
    like there r N no. of students in a class, S no. of
    them passed in 3 subjects, T no. of them passed in 2
    subjects & U no. of them passes in all subjects, what
    no. of students failed in all subjects.
    Another type of qstns. were related to cubes, like
    there is a cube, one side of it is painted with blue
    color, the opposite side is painted with yellow color,
    now it is cut into 16 cubes of equal size, now how
    many cubes r having blue color at one side & no color
    at its adjucent side, how many cubes r having no color
    at any side etc.
    Then there were qstns. like if + means -, * means /, -
    means *, / means +, then which of the following is
    true ; there were four options. Each having some
    calculation like 12+8-3*5/32=13. We have to select the
    option having the correct calculation.
    Most of the questions were similar to the above
    mentioned patterns.

    Section III : Aptitude test - 20 Qstns.- 20 Mins.

    This section contained qstns. exactly like those asked
    in the Bank PO, Railways & UPSC exams. Its different
    from usual apti. qstns.
    E.g. which two of the following are same : 11225689 :
    11225986 : 11225689.
    Then Data sufficiency qstns. like statement 1 is
    sufficient to get the answer, both 1 & 2 needed,
    neither 1 nor 2 can give the answer etc.
    Then Condition checking qstns. like there is a
    recruitment of clerk. Some conditions r given like the
    candidate should be graduate with 60%, his age should
    be less then 30 years, typing speed should be atleast
    45 wpm. etc.
    Based on this we have to answer a perticular candidate
    will be selected or not given his details.
    Then Some simple & usual riddles like Ram goes to 5 km
    east, then 5 km south, then west, now in which
    direction he is. Then a man pointing to a photo says
    he is the son of my grandmothers' son like that.

    Section IV : Programming - C & DFS OR VB - 40 Qstns.-
    30 Mins.

    U can choose either C & DFS paper or VB paper. I chose
    C & DFS.
    This was the toughest part bcoz qstns. were lengthy &
    time was very short. Both C & DFS qstns. were almost
    equal. Most of the C qstns. were asking about the
    output of the given code. The DFS qstns. were about
    link list, array, queue & also the graph theory.
    This section demands a thorough preparation of C & DFS
    & Graph theory.
