For over fifty years, the ocean-freight industry worked to make ocean freighters faster and to lower their fuel consumption.

Syntel Placement Paper : Syntel Placement Paper Chennai 26 November 2012

Since I like to take only one step at a time and concentrate on the task at hand, I have broken down the entire selection process in these convenient parts:

1. Written Test: 45 Questions 45 Minutes

2. Post Written Test Procedure

My Comments: Not very difficult. A little practice will take you a long way. Try to save time.

Post Written Test Procedure

I was called for the Post written test procedure by Syntel on 27 Nov 2011 at Sharda University, Gr. Noida. Again I have broken down the events into sub categories (my nature, you know!!)

Orientation/Presentation

The Syntel Selection Commitee will brief you about their company,s profile and everything worth knowing about them at the point. So even if you haven,t went through the company,s profile before actually going for Post written Test procedure, you need not worry about it. They will also introduce themselves and inform you about the selection process to be followed.

I found candidates paying no attention to what they were telling us, but don,t make this mistake because this information might come in handy (Even the names of people in the commitee!!).

Group Discussion (GD Round)
The first of the Post Written Test Procedure is usually a Group Discussion or GD round. They put candidates in groups of atmost 12 candidates and give a topic to discuss for 10 min. Unlike other GD,s I have participated in where usually a time of 5 min or so is given for preparation, they don,t give any time to prepare for the topic. This is very critical round for your selection process so be prepared for it.

GD Topics
Grass on the other side is Green (this was my topic).
Mobile Phones to be allowed in colleges or not.
The topics were pretty generic and not the usual GD topics like Corporal Punishments in schools, TV and kids etc. They actually want to know your attitude towards these generic things. Positive attitude will get you selected for sure.

Be really confident.
You,ll have to grab your opportunity to speak, so don,t waste time.
Speaking "more" points will not get you selected.

In a nutshell, speak only relevent points which show your thinking and not that you approve or disapprove others. For instance I spoke only 3 points during my GD but I spoke my mind clearly and with confidence (Confidence is the key!!).
Technical Interview
You,ll have to fill up a form with your basic details before appearing for technical interview. This form also contain sections for technical interviewer and HR interviewer to fill. Take your time and go through the form(although its not necessary).

The Technical interview will be based on the course you are currently pursuing and skills mentioned in your resume. You can also be asked to explain a little about your major project(final year project for B.Tech Students). You can also be made to write pretty basic C programs like sorting, finding prme numbers, finding palindromes etc.

Points to follow:
If you have mentioned any skill of information that you don,t actually possess in your resume, do yourself a favour and take it out, cause it can mess up with your chances if you get caught.
If you are a non CS or a non IT field student, polish the basics concepts like an electronics student would revise- flip flops, latches, memories etc. A little practice of basic C programs like the ones mentioned above will help you a lot.
If you are a CS or an IT field student, they would most likely go for basics of Operating systems, OOP concepts etc. If you have mentioned any JAVA course that you have done, in your resume, they can make you write some JAVA programs.

Stay Calm and confident, a little smile on the face won,t hurt anybody!
Don,t make wild guesses if you don,t know any answer, just politely say "I don,t know".
Don,t argue with the interviewer, even if you are right!!! He/she might be testing your composure. Trust me, they do that sometimes and how do I know that? well they tried it with me!!
Give to the point answers. No need to fill the interviewer with unnecessary details- remember, he already knows the answer!!

HR Interview

Don,t get too worked up if you made it through the technical round because the HR round can be very tricky and even the most eligible candidates are not able to make it through this round.

The HR interview is nothing like the technical one, the HR interviewer/interviewers are usually very friendly and ask all sorts of questions about you. They want to know your true personality through their questions, so you have to answer their questions smartly. Again confidence is essential in whatever you speak. Speaking fluently in English will surly impress them. Some preparations must be done on the candidate,s part before appearing for the HR interview like:

Tell me about yourself (Sounds simple but speaking non stop about yourself without missing any important detail is not very simple. Tell important points before the secondary points like hobbies etc. This shows you are "well organised ").
What do you know about Syntel? (This is where their presentation round helps)
What are the 5 key "S" features/pillars of syntel? (Presentation round)
Why do you want to join Syntel.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?

These are just few examples. Confidence is the key. They asked me the name of the Vice-President present their at the time of Orientation round. I,m glad I paid attention during the orientation.

KEEP IN MIND:

Answer smartly, don,t say anything silly or something that can ruin your chances, they are searching for these little hints when you are speaking.
Trust me, to make you a friend is the last thing they want to do, so please don,t think of them as your friends even if they seem real friendly. You are there to get a job, so focus on that.
Don,t speak/switch to any other language than english, this can be a disaster.
Interviewers are looking for positive attitude towards work and other aspects. If you are able to show it through your answers. You,re in.

Result

As I mentioned above, my Post Written Test Procedure took place on 27 Nov 2011, and I got the result from my placement officer on 03 Jan 2012, so its quite some time before they declare the result. Never mind though, cause all the waiting is worth it. I,m happy to be selected among the 2 other candidates selected from my college.

Conclusion

In the End I would like to wish all of you good luck and my best wishes. Remember they are looking for good communication skills and the grand daddy of all - "Confidence". Thank you for reading my experience and I,ll see you at SYNTEL- Consider IT Done.

40) Directions to solve

Each of the following questions contains a small paragraph followed by a question on it. Read each paragraph carefully and answer the question given below it.

a) It is up to our government and planners to devise ways and means for the mobilisation of about ten crore workers whose families total up about forty crore men, women and children. Our agriculture is over-manned. A lesser number of agriculturists would mean more purchasing or spending power to every agriculturist. This will result in the shortage of man-power for many commodities to be produced for which there will be a new demand from a prosperous agrarian class. This shortage will be removed by surplus man-power released from agriculture as suggested above.

The passage best supports the statement that:

A.

employment in production is more fruitful than employment in agriculture.

B.

Indian economy is in a poor shape basically due to improper mobilisation of man-power.

C.

a shift of labour from agricultural sector to the industrial sector would uplift the living standard.

D.

the industrial sector is labour-deficient while the agricultural sector is over-manned in our country.

b) Exports and imports, a swelling favourable balance of trade, investments and bank-balances, are not an index or a balance sheet of national prosperity. Till the beginning of the Second World War, English exports were noticeably greater than what they are today. And yet England has greater national prosperity today than it ever had. Because the income of average Englishmen, working as field and factory labourers, clerks, policemen, petty shopkeepers and shop assistants, domestic workers and other low-paid workers, has gone up.

The passage best supports the statement that:

A.

a country,s economic standard can be best adjudged by per capital income.

B.

a country,s balance of trade is the main criteria of determining its economic prosperity.

C.

a nation,s economy strengthens with the increase in exports.

D.

English trade has continually increased since the Second World War.

c) Satisfaction with co-workers, promotion opportunities, the nature of work, and pay goes with high performance among those with strong growth needs. Among those with weak growth needs, no such relationship is present - and, in fact, satisfaction with promotion opportunities goes with low performance.

This passage best supports the statement that:

A.

satisfaction is an inevitable organisational variable.

B.

job satisfaction and performance are directly and closely related.

C.

relationship between job satisfaction and performance is moderated by growth need.

Syntel Placement Paper : Asansol Engineering College(aec)Asansol ,15 January 2011

Hi Friends,

Latest update

Look all guys. Syntel online test is very simple but very tricky. 45 questions 45 minutes. Just go to your college lab and give the test infornt of your sir. Be careful. There is no negative marking and 1 page is consists of 3 questions. But after saving the page you cann,t change your answer and if you want to see the 45th question sure you have to pass all the 15 pages. There is no way to get back.

Most of are puzzle, reasoning, series, coding, decoding, rearrenging the sentences, nearest meaning, opposite, analogy, a very simple blood relation and a very very very hard also. Sentence correction.

1 quesiton on direction. That means you have to covr all the verbal reasoning part. In my paper there is no aptitude quesitons.

Time and speed is the key.
