Hi Friends

I attended an off campus drive for Satyam on June 14, 2008 in Anna University, Trichy, Tamil Nadu. I feel sorry for Satyam for
missing me. But I have immense pleasure to share the valuable experience that I got there. As Per our schedule it starts at 2.00
pm. But I reached there around 9 am to get used to the condition. It was so hot out there and I also feel the heat since it's my
maiden interview. All set to begin.. We are asked to fill up the hall ticket around 12 noon. Don't forget your reference number in the
hall ticket since the get back the hall ticket after the aptitude and you are referred by that reference number in further se lection
process. Its about 1.45pm we asked to enter into the hall college wise.. As they are so many students they conducted aptitude in 3
batches.. Fortunately I belong to the Batch 1. I am so confident about aptitude but when I enter into the hall I get perplexed. I
would like to add a note here, don't get trapped by this situation it's a crucial juncture where you have to held your nerves... It was
2.35pm when they finish the seating arrangement. About 2.40 they distribute the answer sheet where you are asked to fill your ref
no, name, 10th, 12th and your Degree percentage and also about your backlogs if any ...

It was a single sheet which organize the 15 questions with multiple choice as 5 as follows
1) a    b    c     d   e
We are asked to put a X mark over the corresponding choice (It may vary, so keenly go through instructions provided in the
question paper Since one of my friend put a tick mark instead and get eliminated). Fine.... At last they provided the question paper
at 2.45PM. Kindly go through the instruction provided in it. It was 15 Questions and 30 Minutes. -ve Mark is 0.25 for each wrong
answer and 1 mark for correct answer. So be careful while answering.

The questions are as follows
1. The present population of a city is XXXXX (I don't remember the actual value). What is the difference between the population 3
years and 2 years ago. (Very easy).

2. A number series problem. (I didn't find it)

3. It was big question about greedy thieves who rob large no of gold coins and stay in a home at night. They Planned to divide it
equally on tomorrow and went to sleep. Each thief take some amount of gold coins and leave some amount (Sorry I forget the
actual value.) At last the remaining amount of coins is XX. Then what is the original amount of gold coins (I didn't answer it)

4. A time and distance problem (Very easy)

5. An another big passage about coding a integer into binary values as per the given rule and they ask the result of equation. (I not
even try to solve as it was so complex)

6. A logical puzzle. Once again a large passage. The problem is to put Seven types of Birds A,B,C,D,E,F,G into some amount of
cages. They give some restrictions on putting a bird on cages. (I didn't answer it. I took some time in solving this puzzle but all in
vain. I got little panic at this time as I consumed about 15 min and only answered 2 out of 6. )

7. A calendar problem (Thank god.. Easy one, I solved.. But once again I took too much time. )

8. i) a2 + b2 = some value
ii) ab = 22.
To find the values of a and b we need
1) statement (1) only
2) statement (2) only
3) Both statement (1) and (2)
4) Either (1) or (2)
5) None of these (Very very easy... I got my confidence back.. since it took only about 10 seconds)

9. Conclusion from passage type problem. Once again a big passage, I apply the a reverse method here i.e., take a choice and
check whether it is true in the passage. fortunately I got the 3rd choice as right.... (I smell the success at this time)

10. An another conclusion from passage type problem. It's also a big passage. But this time fortune is not in favor of me. I took
about 3 minutes and unable to find out the solution... (I scold myself at this time as I wasted some precious time)

11. A tree height problem. Present height is some value and if it grows by 1/20th of its height then what will be its height in 2
years... (Easy one and I answered)

12. A Probability type problem. There are 5 women and 4 men and how many ways that we can form a group which contain more
women than men.. (I give up this as I didn't remember the method that has to apply this type of problem)



13. A figure series problem. (Easy one but it required a clear frame of mind. I did it)

14. A number pyramid is given and asked to find out a number in the apex (Easy and I answered)

15. They given a no with its last digit as * (unknown value) and ask what value it would be so that it is divided by 72. (At this time
I heard "Time Up", Incautiously I made a guess at it. I don't know what forces me to guess the answer. But it happened in a flash
and unintentionally)

The Satyam People who took charge this preliminary told that the result will be announced after 6 and also told that the HR will be
tomorrow. I will definitely thank the god for postponing the HR round. I get dehydrated because of hot climate and feel so weak
around 5.

The Climax : With a lot of enthusiasm all those who appeared in aptitude gathered in front of the main building there around 6. But
the result is announced only at 7.15. They started to announce the result college wise. My college is the first. Everyone fee l their
heart in their mouth!!! They announced my name..

BOTTOMLINE : Luck is a spoon of sugar. Hard work is a glass of milk. God give the spoon of sugar to only those who have the glass
of milk... Its really true even though I wander with various thoughts while answering the question I get selected and the reason
behind that is I worked really hard for aptitude for the last 20 days by spending at least 8 hours per day and reap the benefit of
those hard work when it matters.. I think the Lower cut off is 6 as one of my friend get selected by answering only 6 questions.

My suggestions : To be honest, I am not good at solving aptitude. So I worked very hard to get rid of it. "HardWork" is the only
medicine to cure the disease called "Failure". Ya its true.. My success is truly because of my hard and smart work. So work hard
you will definitely reap the benefit. The Books I followed are
1.Quantitative aptitude by R.S Agarwal
2.Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning by R.S Agarwal
3.Analytical Reasoning by MK Pandey

Filling Up the RESUME: After the completion of announcement, we people who cleared the aptitude are asked to gather in a room
there and we are asked to fill up the resume form given by them. In that form they ask about our personal details, reference, and
percentage in 10th, 12th, and degree. There is also some fields for academic mini-projects, extra-curricular activities and for some
additional information. Be careful while filling up this form since the question in HR will be based on this. After completing the 2
pages of that Resume form, You are asked to write a essay about 300 pages on the third page of the form on the topic they give.
My Topic is "Other side is always look greener". It is conducted to asses how good we are in English and also our understanding of
the topic. Other topics are
1.Growing up in a small town
2.Have you ever struggled for something and end with failure
3.How your friends know you
4.Whom do you want to interview and why
5.Living for working or working for living

It was around 9 when they get back the resume form. We are instructed to be there at 8am, next day for HR.. In this way the most
unforgettable day of my life ends. And I went to sleep with endearing dreams..

The DAY 2: We all gathered at 8am. They call us by our reference no and from various batches. I was designated to Batch 9 and
instructed to take my interview in room no 210. There are 5 students in my batch including me. I was called as 3rd person.

The Interview:
ME: Excuse sir, May I come in
HR: Yes Come in....(When I tried to open my mouth to wish good morning to him)
HR: Take your Seat..
ME: Thank you sir..
HR: TamizhVendan.. am I pronouncing correct?

HR: Origami...! What is it..
ME: It's a Japanese art of folding paper into creative shapes sir...

origami and learn about it sir.
HR: So you learned it by reading those instructions in that book.
ME: Yes sir..
HR: Do you watch Movies...
ME: Occasionally sir..
HR: Do you watch TV..
ME: Yes sir.. I watch roughly about an hour..
HR: What kind of programs do you watch in TV?
ME: News and Cricket sir....
HR: News...! Well what is the recent news..
ME: Inflation rate rises to 8.75% which is 7 year high sir..
HR: What is the reason for that....
ME: There are several factors but predominantly they are two. The first one is the supply Side factors i.e. supply doesn't meet its
demand sir.. Another factor is rise in Crude oil price.
HR: oh!... What is the oil price now
ME: Its135$ per gallon sir (I made a mistake here).
HR: gallon... Are you confident about it?
ME: Yes sir.. I am confident about it..
HR: What is gallon....
ME: It is a measure to scale liquid sir...
HR: Then what is barrel ?
(Now I got that It is barrel but I told it as gallon wrongly. As I told I am confident about that answer I didn't confess my mistake)

HR: Why you say like that..
ME: In T-20 form of cricket you are encouraged to play unorthodox shots which would fluctuate the techniques of a batsman and it
was hard for them to cop up in one day and Test cricket... Any one can hit a six sir.. But only very few have the ability to stand and
deliver a good innings in a test match.. So Test cricket is the only form of cricket which test the techniques and temperament of a
batsman sir..
HR: What's your favorite subject in Twelfth standard..
ME: Computer Science sir..
HR: Ok TamizhVendan.. Can You solve a problem in maths..
ME: Yes sir,,, I can..(He Drew a 28x24 rectangle and ask me to form a box with large volume by cutting a square of same size in all
the four corners)
ME: Sir.. Can I take some time to solve this problem..
HR: Take your own time... (Nothing comes into my mind about that problem.. but I pretend like solving that problem)
HR: Do you think can you solve this problem..
ME: Yes sir.. I can... (After some time.. I give up and said him sorry sir I am unable to find the solution for it sir.. )
HR: Its ok.. Do you think this problem have the solution..
ME: Every Problem has the solution sir....
HR: But So many problems in the world don't have solution..
ME: Yes sir.. But for those problems that we don't have the solution in today may have the solution on tomorrow... Its all depend
on how we look at it sir...
HR: yes.. But still there are certain problems that has been proved that there is no solution for it.
ME: Yes sir I accept your view sir... But those are exceptions... Exceptions are not examples sir..
HR: Ok.. TamizhVendan..I am Satisfied with your answer.. You can go now..
ME: Thank You sir.....
(Since its my maiden interview I don't know whether I answered properly or not)

THE PANEL INTERVIEW:
After HR, they conducted a panel interview as an additional round. Around 30 people were selected and I was one among them. I
blame myself for the downfall in this round as I was not prepared for this kind of panel interview. There are 3 people in that panel
and each one pick a topic and ask from it. I felt this as a rapid fire round. It finished in a flash. Really I struggled to answer the
questions, as they asked almost simultaneously. Finally after 1 week they announced the result and Satyam missed me. I took it as
sportive and started to move towards the next drives.

much more time compared to english.so give least time to English and u know English section is very very easy jst basic
grammer..In reasoning section u may encounter questions on blood relations,analogies in alphabets(dfh:ikm::adg:?),numerical

mixture,clocks,SI and CI,time and work,time and distance,problems on train,partnership problems.refer R.S agarwal quantitative
aptitude… it is more enough… questions are very easy.

English is very easy u can give less time to this section. In english-1 u‘l see synonyms,antonyms english-2 general grammer refer
Wren & martin. english-3 Two simplereading comprehention of 10th and intermediate standard.
