I am Arka from Guru Nanak Engg College.. doin my 4-1 .. Recently i got thru da
selection process of Syntel.. The event was held in Malla Reddy College of Engineering.
As the remaining posts here say... The aptitude consists of two sections.. Reasoning and
Verbal...The cut off for reasoning is 13 out of 25 questions and verbal needed 8 out of 15
questions.. U have a time of 1 hr to complete... My test started in da afternoon n it took
nearly 4-5 hrs to announce da results for aptitude..

Aptitude is the first hurdle.. n gettin thru this means half of the job is done.... If u hav
taken up GRE coaching .. try solving the verbal part first n then come to reasoning.. but if
u hav taken up a coachin of CAT then go for reasoning first.. as this section wil b very
easy for them... reasoning is tough if u dnt hav touch wid it.. but refer some books n
understand da methodologies to solve them before goin in..(howeva u'll shud better wat u
shud do frst)

Nearly 1000 students appeared for this test.. n they selected 200 out of them..n 36 were of
my coll...nearly 8 colleges had participated. The remaining rounds were scheduled to be
held four days later on sunday at 9 am.. They arranged us into batches n dependin on the
batch either technical or HR cum GD was done first...

My first interview was HR cum GD... it wasn't so tough...Our whole batch was allowed
in all together.. n everyone had to talk abt self for 2 mins.. they basically check the
communication n interactive skills here.. The HR may even ask some questions to check
ur confidence.. but be confident in wateva ur answerin...

Then she gave us a topic on GD.. Our topic was Globalization... Some advice wud lik to
giv is.. neva b in a hurry to speak.. as if it is da only time u'll b allowed to speak.. dnt try
to cut others statements n make ur point.. try comin to a conclusion n neva keep quiet in a
GD.. speak somethng...

As soon as i came out of the HR interview they intimated me dat i was selected and had
to go for technical round. The technical round wudn't say is tough... but yes great way for
dat guy to shake ur confidence.. he'll try his best but u hav to b at ur best...

Try readin the basics of almost all core subjects wch u had in engg...n yes C
programming.. dats very essential .. wateva branch u belong to..

here's how my technical went..
Tech: Where are u basically from(he was sure i wasn't of south seeing my name)?
Me: i am basically of calcutta
Tech: ok! What is an IP controller??
Me: (shocked!! i was expecting questions frm C, C++ Java or some prog languages... my

tried to hit but great fieldin by him)
Tech: Wat is a process?
Me: A programme in execution is a process(4 runs)
Tech: Wats diff between parallel processing and chain processing?
Me: Explained correctly..
Tech: Are u really tryin to bluff?
Me: Sir am very sure of parallel processing but chain processing can be made more

Tech: Wat is da role of OS during Booting?
Me: answered
Tech: Wat is a kernel?

Me: packages ( a real long Tech isin't it? )
Atlast he said.. it was nice meeting u Arka.. do u hav any questions?
Me: Sir wat is it dat u r basically looking for?
Tech: Arka basically we r looking for guys wid self confidence n a lil bit of basic skills...
some thng more also but i forgot..

So basically be through wid those basics.. n even if ur not.. be confident in any manner...
try smiling all da time before him.. n neva show him dat ur tensed.. for some of my
friends he asked questions such as Wat is Newton's II law .. Chemical formulaes n
trignometry stuff... jus to see how he reacts.. react in a positive way.. try getting da
answer.. but if ur not sure neva challenge him..

The results came in 2 days later.. out of 36 frm my coll..14 were selected. I stil can't
believe.. checked da list 3 times today...lolz. take care..jus confidence is wat u need to get
into any company...
Best of luck..

Aptitude Paper Section 1: Logical reasoning
Aptitude Paper Section 2: English

Technical Interview:
Since I did a mini-project, I was asked to explain it! I took much time for that and
explained it from the beginning, with its advantages and limitations.

Then I was asked questions from C. Since I was a beginner in C, I could not answer much,
but somehow managed with all I knew!

Then, as I am from ECE department, questions from microprocessor was asked! The
questions included 8086 microprocessor architecture, register structures, addressing
modes, instruction set and so on. I answered all those questions but had some difficulties
with the instructon set as he asked me to tell all the instructions I knew.

Then, he gave me a paper and asked me to draw certain gate diagrams and also to write
down the truth-table for those gates!
These are the questions I remember.

It all depends on how cool you are during the interviews! The more you get hot, greater
are the chances for appearing blank before the personnels! So be cool and try to answer
all the questions.

Human Resource Interview:
I had the HR round before the technical round. This was quite interesting....

The interviewer was a Lady. She asked me to introduce myself. I told her my academic
history. But as she emphasised on my personal life, I started with my hobbies. I said I
love singing and playing guitar. Immediately she interrupted and asked me to sing a song
for her. I was totally taken by surprise and had no other option but to sing!

Then she went through my resume and asked me to explain what I learnt from the
Industrial visits I had gone. I explained all that I knew. The interview went on interesting
with many such questions. But these are some noteworthy ones!

After the interviews were over, we were told that the results will be sent to the respective
Placement Deans of each colleges. So we left very soon enjoying the rain that blessed
that night!

Our interview process had 3 stages
1.Logical & English

any aptitude and u hav nothin to work with formulas. You have 25 Qs from
Logical(Verbal & Non Verbal)Reasoning , 15 Qs from English
R.S Agarwal Verbal & Non Verbal Reasoning book is more than enough.

Topics u need to prepare:
LOGICAL PART: analogy, classification, series completion, coding & decoding, Blood
Relations, puzzle test, Syllogism,analytical Reasoning
ENGLISH: Antonymns, Synonymns, Find the Gramatical error, Complete the sentence.

I did'nt hav Qs from all these topics but these r the topics u can expect in ur written test.
Test Duration is 1 hour. Type - filling the omr sheet
Time management is very important.

Practice all type of problems as it takes u more time to solve cos these are not aptitude
type Qs. After the Written Test about 2 hrs Later the results were anounced. My name
was the last one to be read out. Then The PPT was conducted and presented about their
company's vision, mission, customers, the training, salary, bond ect. We were said that
we had to sign a bond of 2 yrs for a pay of 2.6 lacs PA. Later we were given a HR form
to be filled were u enter personal information and Key skills. U can expect Qs from key
skills.

communication skills was out in HR round just of 1 reason.
       He was caught in a Q - who is ur role model?
       He answered Bill Gates and the interviewer started firing Qs about Bill Gates, and
he got caught in aQ - Wat was the latest award he got? The interviewer asked him cant u

The Verbal section had 15 questions and cut-off 8 .

But I strongly believe that the cut-off marks were varied a little up & down.. though not
by a big margin. The logical sections include symbols, coding, blood relations, series and
2 DI questions.

The verbal section consisted of correction of sentences, substitution of correct words, and
passages. Rating of the exam will be characteristic frm person 2 person.. so I wouldn't
comment on that.

Results were announced, a brief inroduction abt the company was given. The next round
was a Technical cum HR round conducted in 2 stages.
First I was called for the HR round. It was a lady. She was a little serious with me unlike
was friendly with others as thy said.

She : Tell me abt urself .

She : took out a form , asked my full name and mobile No.

she : don't u have any aims/ goals. get specific..
me : well ma'am am good at VHDL, VLSI, MPI and very good in C. Tht explains tht I
like my field. I am lookin 2 shift to software through Embeded systems which would
serve both my learning so far & the sotware boom now in the market. ( folks am frm ECE
engineering stream )
she ( seemed not at all interested gave a more rather grin face ) : wat is the architecture of
8085 ?
me : asked for a paper, she gave.. I thought for abt 30 sec.. and finally answered I DON'T
KNW.
she (gave an akward smile engh 2 irritate me but gotta 2 get my cool back ) : wat r the
address and data lines of 8085 ?
me : told.
she ( seemed dissatisfied ) asked the same for 8086 ?

known before the loop is entered



WHILE LOOP:The WHILE loop repeats a statement until the test at the top proves false.



DO-WHILE LOOP:This is very similar to the while loop except that the test occurs at the
end of the loop body. This guarantees that the loop is executed at least once before
continuing.

moment my presence of mind and spontaniety helped me to outwit others...i spoke for
more than 5 minutes about the other side of group discussion which could make any one
have a second thought about having it in a selection process....... .................my command
over the language and my very own style and accent attracted all the group members and
the HR ofcourse.......................then from the next four 3 opposed me and my classmate

date:23/06 sat

we were supposed to report at 8:30 n were expecting the written to commence from 10 or
so. No hall-tickets were isuued so we had to collect the reference no. There was a total
chaos n the arrangement made by college was not upto the mark.The refernce allotment
got over by 10:30 n we were told to evacuate the building(mismanagement again).We
finally entered our respective classes around 11:30 n the writen exam finally began at

The paper had 2 sections,one after the other

had to
answer their deserving posts (the ques had complex looks bt was pretty simple)
3)a quest on CODING DECODING
3 words along with some coding were given we had to identify the corresponding coded
alphabet for some characters (was easy but i got stuck in one of the subparts,ws ambigous)
4) 5 quest with 4 english statements each were given n we had to classify each as
  a) assertion
  b) supporting reason
  c) counter logic
  d) irrelavant
 it was for the first time i encountered such quest so took me time to tackle it

SECTION 2: ENGLISH
The paper was really well designed and must had proved desicive for the next phase,in
short this section was REALLY TYPICAL
The paper comprised sentence correction,analogies(very hard vocab) etc.
The paper got over at 2 pm and the results were supposed to be declared around 4(after
the presentation)
The presentation began at 3:15 n continued till 4 pm
we all were exhausted and the results were announced at 5:45pm with severe mic

figured,i presume)

Hello friends im Devan got placed recently , syntel visited here on 16th n 17th march for
central recruitment for 2008 batch , the apti was on 16th while interviews were scheduled
on 17th , the next day !!

there were follwing phases(this is the latest pattern , as mentioned by others too , in
previous papers)

1> reasoning ( 25 questions , cut of was mentioned on the answer sheet , 13 )
2> verbal ( 15 questions , cut off was 8 )
3> technical + hr interview

total time - 1 hour
1> the reasoning
it consisted of 25 questions , pretty easy ones mixed with moderately tuff questions , so
i'd rate this section as moderate... i can mention some of the questions that i remember ,
like choose the odd word out ...then there was one question like...if sachin is wearing
sourav's t shirt...sehwag is wearing yuvraj's...sourav comes to bat ahead of
rahul..etc..whose t shirt would sourav be wearing..was easy one..

then there was one blood relationship question ... another one was a series like
AB*!1D+E*2%G3I*K(this is not the exact question)
5 questions were based on this series like - if order of series is reversed , find the 11th
element to the left of 7th element from right , find 7th ele from left of 11th from right...
if later half of series is reversed , what would be the 7th ele. from right of 11th..
how many symbols are immediately followed by odd no. etc. (simple questions)

2>verbal
this was a good section..a passage with 5 questions..
5 questions on - some sentences were given and find the error in one of the word/words
underlined like
one day / mary and jane / has gone to the / village to fetch / some water

3 > tech + hr interview

strong... the interviewers - gentleman n a lady , luked quite young , not more than 28/29 i

the gentleman asked tech questions and the lady asked hr
the man aksed me where i belonged to and questions followed like
>what r pointers
>different data structures in c
>then he asked me my subjects in 6th sem , computer networks was one of them so he
asked me - use of data link layer

in the beginning i told them i wasnt gud with tech(prog part) and was more interested in
gaming , multimedia n web aspects..so >they asked what if we put u on coding
department in the company....i said i will learn...work hard for it..wll do it..

be confident while answering

>overloading n overriding
>sorting n searching algos(for sure)

he was done...and then lady asked me hr questions like
> my aim in life
> my strengths , i said self confidence , leadership qualities ... hence she asked what
would a good leader be like ??..and a couple of questions on team n members(confusing
ones , just answer what u think , dnt pretend ure answering a mugged up answer , they'd
catch u easily)
>can i work in chennai ... i said i am ready to work from kashmir to kanyakumari....they
smiled..

I attended Syntel Off-Campus Recruitment at Madurai, Tamilnadu on Mar16th & 17th,
2007 and got the results on Mar21st evening.

The Pattern is as follows:
On Mar 16th, I attended 1st round. First they invite all of the people and showed
presentation about SYNTEL. Next you will be taken to the respective exam halls.

Aptitude Round:

Logical Reasoning – 25 marks
Verbal Reasoning – 15 mark

The test will be conducted for one hour and 15 mins. We completed the test by 11.15am
and the results were announced by 2pm. I got selected. The selected people were given a
“Bio-Data” form to fill, it includes your name, %, institution, university, name and work
of brothers and sisters, ur addr, phone no, ur training and project and finally ur s/w skills.

Be careful while filling this form because during HR only from that form ques will be put
to u. They will ask not your resume or photo! Only this form is going to be your evidence.

I attended the HR+TECH interview on 17th by 9am.The interview was cool, HR first
asked me to sit back and relaxed. The questions are

   1. Tell me about yourself,
   2. What have you done in your training?
   3. Can you explain me your project?
   4. Why you are interested in Networking?
   5. Have you learnt Java of your own interest or academically? (As I have mentioned
      Java in the s/w skills along with c and c++)
   6. The he asked 2 questions from Java.
   7. How would you prove your leadership skill?
   8. Finally, any questions for us

Be cool folks…they check your communication skills, ability, confidence level and your
skills up to 65% at least. They try to make you answer.
For most of my friends, during HR only two questions were asked. Tell me about
yourself and explain project.

They announced the results only on the 4th day, Mar 21st evening by 5pm. Thank God, I
got selected. They analyze our performance for 2 days and the results are being
announced only after 2 days… For us as Sunday and Monday were holidays, they
announced it by Wednesday. I extend my thanks to those who posted their experience
and ques. Be confident and +ve… ALL THE BEST!!!
