Mindtree Placement Paper : General - Interview GITAM College Vizag - 5 July 2007

MINDTREE PAPER ON 5th JULY

Hi.....
We had mindtree exam on 5th july 2007 .The paper was simple but the time limit he gives could make u a bit fuzzy and spoil ur test so never do that....just be cool and go on with how much u can do becoz thts the best way to do it. Hurry could lead you to disaster.The test contained 7 sections 1st section had flowcharts (in it some box filling stuff) four were der.2nd was making equs .3rd was speed maths

4th was matching .For the first and second section we were given 15 mins.For 3rd and 4th we were given just 3 mins .In 3 mins we were supposed to do 13 maths ques of form 1345%567(appro)= types.

Last 3 secs were of 15 mins (for all 3),contained a bit technical,passage,ques,algorithm stuff. In written out of 350 or 400 i think 150 were shortlisted.

Next was GD.Just be confident and add points.Initialisation and team cooperation and ur confidence is observed.The topic was "Email vs Snailmail". In GD out of 150 -70 were shortlisted.

Next was tech cum hr.
I was in the panel A and second one to be interviewed in it.

I told.Nextly he asked me diff in IT and cse.I told.
He asked me abt analog communication,its contents.

Then he asked me a prog relating to my project .I EXPLAINED THE SERVLET.Then he asked its practicality and cases of validity in an email He almost asked me so many symbols that cant be used in an email(like double @,?,:,etc.
Then he asked on animals.If you really have something then only speak out becoz whtever u say he has ques on them.
He was really impressed by my facts on animals...... :)
Then he asked me to check cases in email validation i asked can i write in Perl as i did project on it.And i explaned it with a SPLIT function..... he was impressed.

Mindtree Placement Paper : Whole Testpaper MSRIT Bangalore - 14 May 2007

MINDTREE PAPER ON 14th MAY AT BANGALORE

PRESENTATION:
For those of you who have not been driven towards the company after scanning through Mindtree,s Website, this is the place to be. The presentation is by far the best i have ever seen. From the meaning of the company,s logo to the answers to queries at the end of the session,every single word will strike a chord.

WRITTEN TEST:
procedure: There is a fixed time for each of the 7 sections.
A proctor keeps track of the time and informs when to move to the next section.
There is a sample question at the begining of each section,reading of the sample is not timed. The paper tests you on your basic reasoning abilities.
If you are looking for the test pattern, I would suggest you stop right now. The only people who would be of help are the people who have written the test. It is a very different test,it tests you on your speed,ablity to stay calmN focussed in that one hour. No standard type questions.The difficulty level Is not high but speed and concentration is the criteria.
flowcharts: the problem statement is given along with a flowchart .some of the boxes of the flowchart are empty with choices to fill in. a section was filled with division and reminder finding,basically speed math
a problem on conversion of base of numbers
application of general formula,s like speed = d/t etc
the last section has OS and SE(if u havent studied these subjects dont worry,we were informed it was not given importance for non cs/is branches)
learn the names of the stages of software production life cycle,wat is the output of the compiler,some basics of c

GROUP DISCUSSION:
The group discussion was preceded by tips on group discussions,but this ofcourse depends on your panel.All the panel members are extremely friendly and polite.
Put forward your opinions and listen when someone else apeaks.
I am not qualified enough to give GD tips,so ill leave it here.

MINDTREE was the first software company to visit the Bengal Engineering & Science University, Shibpur campus for campus placements. The entire procedure was of two days- 17th and 18th July, 2006. It consisted of the following things:-

1) Aptitude Test
The aptitude test was the first level to be crossed. The eligibility criteria for the test was 65% in aggregate from IT, ETC, CST or EE departments. The test was actually outsourced to a US-based agency known as ,Professional Aptitude Council,. The test they conducted was composed of 2 parts:-
a) Part One - This consisted of time-based sections ranging from Diagrams, IT reasoning, quantitative analysis to approximations and chart viewing. The different sections had times allotted as 30, 20, 6 and 2 minutes and total questions were 105.
b) Part Two - This consisted of various sections but no time-bound sections. The questions here ranged from Basic computer knowledge to logical reasoning to Psychometry and knowledge about the various topics. This part was allotted a total time of 75 minutes and total questions were 140.
So the total time was 133 minutes and the total questions were 245.

2) Group Discussion
For the group discussion, which was held on day 2 after the Pre-placement talk (PPT) there were 90 students chosen. They were divided into 9 groups of 10 each. Each group was given a different topic to discuss. Some of the topics were:
i) If you get up tomorrow morning and you find that the Internet has vanished, will it be good for society or not?

iii) Indian IT companies are ruining business etc etc

3) Personal Interview
