CTS Placement Paper : CTS Placement Paper MLRIT, Hyderabad 06 November 2010

I,m a CSE student. I had attended CTS Off-Campus written test on 25th September at MLRIT, Hyderabad. The test was conducted 2 days(25th and 26th, mine was on 25th).

It was an online test. 55 questions and 50 mins.

No negative marking.

It was conducted by Merit track ppl.

Everyone will get a different paper.

The test consisted of 2 parts.
Analytical and logical, once you jump from one section to another you cannot come back to previous one( you can jump between questions in the same section though).

Time management is very important.

Before the test you have to fill in a form like S/W orientation, long term goals etc as said by others in the website(that too online only).

I will tell you the type of questions asked.

CTS Part 1(Analytical)30 questions:

* A pie diagram with data is given and questions will be asked on that(Bit difficult)
* Syllogisms(1st only one conclusion is given and 2 statements are given choose the statement).
* Completing the figures, next figure in the series.
* Data sufficiency qustions.
* Coding and decoding.
* Finding conclusion for a statement.
(No cube question in off-campus)

CTS Part 2(Verbal) 25 questions:

* Two very very long passages and 10 to 12 questions from it. I didn,t have time so did it randomly. do passages at last).
* Finding the correct and incorrect sentences.
* Finding the incorrect part in a sentence.
As I said time management is very important. Don,t go for questions you dont know, try them out at last.

Just concentrate on the exam because some people will come many a times to the exam hall and announce something, They try to kill your time. Don,t concentrate on them, just be with your exam.

CTS Technical interview:

I cleared the test, had interview on 7th Oct, 2010 at 2.30 pm in CTS company, Hyderabad.
I have waited for 6,o clock & then i was called for Technical interview.

Verbal Ability Test

Directions for Questions 1-5: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

Much of the information we have today about chimpanzees comes from the groundbreaking, long-term research of the great conservationist, Jane Goodall.

Jane Goodall was born in London, England, on April 3, 1934. On her second birthday, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Jubilee was named after a baby chimp in the London Zoo, and seemed to foretell the course Jane’s life would take. To this day, Jubilee sits in a chair in Jane’s London home. From an early age, Jane was fascinated by animals and animal stories. By the age of 10, she was talking about going to Africa to live among the animals there. At the time, in the early 1940s, this was a radical idea because women did not go to Africa by themselves. As a young woman, Jane finished school in London, attended secretarial school, and then worked for a documentary filmmaker for a while. When a school friend invited her to visit Kenya, she worked as a waitress until she had earned the fare to travel there by boat. She was 23 years old. Once in Kenya, she met Dr. Louis Leakey, a famous paleontologist and anthropologist. He was impressed with her thorough knowledge of Africa and its wildlife, and hired her to assist him and his wife on a fossil-hunting expedition to Olduvai Gorge. Dr. Leakey soon realized that Jane was the perfect person to complete a study he had been planning for some time. She expressed her interest in the idea of studying animals by living in the wild with them, rather than studying dead animals through paleontology. Dr. Leakey and Jane began planning a study of a group of chimpanzees who were living on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Kenya. At first, the British authorities would not approve their plan. At the time, they thought it was too dangerous for a woman to live in the wilds of Africa alone. But Jane’s mother, Vanne, agreed to join her so that she would not be alone. Finally, the authorities gave Jane the clearance she needed in order to go to Africa and begin her study. In July of 1960, Jane and her mother arrived at Gom@

CTS Placement Paper : CTS Placement Paper Banglore 25 September 2011

I am Santanu Ghosh, a final year student from Govt. College Of Engineering & Ceramic Technology, Kolkata. I am currently pursuing B.Tech in Information Technology. I am very much glad that I’m placed at one of the fastest growing company, its Cognizant. Now I am going to share my Cognizant experience with you. Cognizant visited GCELT campus on 26th Sep, 2011 for recruitment from both GCECT & GCELT, Kolkata.

At first the Cognizant people came to the college at 9:30 a.m., gave the pre placement talk. It was very good and there was an inspirable video clip which influenced me very much. After that selection procedure was started.
There were two stages:

1. Aptitude test
2. HR and Technical Interview

Before actually start written test, they provided the OMR sheet to fill the following information:

1. Name, Date of Birth, Cognizant Application ID (which will be provided by College after registration)
2. Gender, 10th class percentage, 12th class percentage, UG percentage, Year of passing, if there any Backlog/Backlogs (current and previous)
3. Details of 10th, 12th standard school and UG college, like Degree Name, Branch, Year of passing, Name of the Institution
4. Permanent Address, Mobile and Telephone No, E-mail1, E-mail2, Nationality, Current Address
5. One question will be asked on Soft skills which needs a detailed answer in your own words.
Now I want to tell something about Aptitude Test.
It had two parts, Verbal and Analytical.

1. Verbal part:

Two long passages were given but needed to read thoroughly because the questions were simple and direct. After that there were finding the correct and incorrect sentences, arranging a group of sentences in an order so that they have a meaning. There were total 25 questions and time was 25 minutes. Overall it was quite tough paper. Time was very short for answer completely to the whole paper.

2. Analytical part:

It contained finding the odd figure, finding the next figure in the sequence, syllogisms, data interpretation, data sufficiency, coding-decoding, finding logically correct statements, and puzzles. It was compared to easy than other section. The book of R.S.Agarwal is enough for covering most of the tropics. There were 30 questions and time was 30 minutes. In this section also time is too short for answer properly all the questions.

There was sectional cut-off for each part. Don’t worry about it, keep your cool and do as much as possible. No negative marks were allowed for wrong answers.

After a long wait around 2 p.m. our Aptitude result was declared and my name was in that list. Total 111 students cleared the Test, 47 from our college and 64 from GCELT. Any way there were 15 panels and I was selected for 9th panel and I was the first person in that panel. My interview time was 2:30 p.m. I was little-bit tensed as that was the first interview in my life. Hopefully my HR was a nice person and quite friendly. Before entering into the room, I took the permission of the HR and the whole interview process like that:

HR: Are you Santanu Ghosh?
Me: Yes sir.
HR: ok, please have a seat. (In the mean time he was going through my aptitude marks, the aforesaid forms)
Me: Thank u sir.
HR: Give your CV.
Me: Yes sir, please take it.
HR: Tell me about yourself.
ME: I started and after a sometime he stopped me.
HR: why are you tensed?

HR: Why c?

HR: (with a smile) ok, very well. Do you know pointer?
ME: Yes sir.
HR: What is pointer in C? Explain with an example.
ME:I defined it clearly and explain with a short C program also its pictorial representation.
HR: (he satisfied with my answer) What do you mean by call by value and call by reference?
ME: Told
HR: Explain it with help of C programs.
ME: (He gave me blank page for writing)……I wrote these two programs promptly…as it was quite easy for me.
HR: Does C support call by reference?
ME: Told.
HR: Are you sure?
ME: Yes Sir
HR: (with a smile) How much? ...........100% or 200%?
ME: (At this time I think for a while……If I say its 200% then it may be indicated overconfidence) I told 100%. (Then he wrote a complex C program through a whole A4 page and explained it and asked the next question)
HR: ok tell me what are the outputs of that program?
Me: There were two outputs of that program I told the 1st one correctly……….but unfortunately I did mistake for the second…….It was pretty tough for me and code was very complex using multiple pointers.
HR: (He was not satisfied with my answer then he told me the right answer and moved up to next question) Do u know Data Structure?
ME: Told
HR: What is the definition of Data Structure?
ME: I gave the definition from my knowledge…….not actually as proper definition……..
HR: What are the practical applications of Data Structure?

ME: Told
HR: What is its importance?
ME: bla bla
HR: What is the definition of Operating System?
ME: I told the exact definition (Here I use the words ’user interface’)
HR: why mouse/key-board are not OS though they have user interface?
ME: I explained the reason vividly. (He looks satisfied with my answer)
HR: What do you mean by Data Base Management System?
ME: Told
HR: What are the practical applications of Data Base Management System?
ME: Told
HR: so what is the difference between DS and DBMS?
ME: Bla bla(When I answered he looked at my face)
HR: Are you tensed?
ME: no sir………..(Each and every time he observed my face and checked my confidence label and I also always maintained eye contact with him )
HR: what is the uniqueness with you that’s why I select you?
ME: I told two points of my uniqueness (but he looks not satisfied with my answer and after that he asked some cross questions depend on my answer like Why do you think this is unique? Etc…etc.)
HR: Why I select you?
ME: I told some points (my innovative skills, flexibility, adaptability ……..etc.) regarding this question………
HR: Why Cognizant?
ME: Bla Bla………Here I told that Cognizant is my dream company from starting of my B.Tech course….and Cognizant is the best platform for freshers for expressing their innovative power….and another points and information about Cognizant. Actually I was ready for answer this question and also prepared it carefully (He was very much satisfied with my answer).
HR: Why Cognizant is your dream company?
ME: Told
HR: ok that’s all … Have you any question?
ME: I asked about the initial training program of Cognizant and the role of freshers at Cognizant.
HR: Gave the answers very carefully.
ME: Thank you sir.
HR: Thank you.
ME: Then I shook hand with him………. And told nice to meet you, sir….May I leave now
HR: Ok, You may go now.
ME: Thank you sir very much (And I left).

It was around 30 minutes.

The result was declared at 8:30 p.m. on that day by Cognizant HR Manager. Total 69 students had been selected, 30 from our college and 39 from GCELT. When my name was called out, I could not control myself, it’s a joy of heaven. Actually I was more than happy. Thank God, and to my parents, my respected teachers, my friends and seniors, without their inspiration I could not achieve such type of great success.

My advice is keep yourself cool, calm and not to get over smart at the time of interview and be confident about your every answer. Never tell a lie about yourself….Always say Cognizant not CTS for a single time. It will be better if you try not to get tensed the whole day.
