Subject: [CHETANA] (paper)SATYAM RECENT PAPER AND THANKS FOR WISHING

Hello friends,

I received many mails congratulating me for getting job in SATYAM. Many ask
ing for details of SATYAM selection process and the QUESTION PAPER..

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL THOSE WISHED ME.

Sorry, I was not in station for two day,so I am sendind the paper lately.
Here are some details of the SATYAM selection process I faced and the question p
aper.

Venue: PESIT, HOSKEREHALLY, BANGALORE.


DATES:

1 st NOV 2003 : Aptitude test


Group discussion (GD)
2nd NOV 2003 : TECHNICAL And HR interviews.
Selection procedure:

Half an hour aptitude test comprising of 15 questions, each correct question car
ries a single mark and a wrong question has a 1/4 negative marks i.e-1/4.

Remember negative marking will be there, don't try to guess the answers. Fir
st choose the questions which are easy and not lengthy. Believe me many questi
on were very easy but only thing is they will try to confuse you .

Written test is only APTITUDE .Does not contain any technical questions.Most o
f the questions were from "QUATITATIVE APTITUDE BY R.S AGGARWAL" and "SHAKUNTAL
A DEVI'S PUZZLE BOOKS". No verbal questions i.e no synonyms and antonyms.

I don't remember the all the questions ,I am sending all the questions I remembe
r but not in order.

a) Question on Data interpretation : Question no. 12 FROM PAGE 514


b) Question on Data interpretation : Question no. 3 FROM PAGE 492
c) Question on series :

97, 114, 133, ?

Ans: 154

d) Question of series but there were numbers instead of numbers. I don't remembe
r the series but I just give a idea of such question.

R, T, P, R, U , P , ?

e) Question on counting the number of triangles ,given a big diagram.

f)One Question was like this:


if bag of black and white balls are given and told you to pick any tw
o if they are of same color throw them out and add a single ball of other color
from the infinitely available pool. if this process of throwing out 2 and adding
1 continues, then eventually the bag gets emptied. if the exact status of numbe
r of black and white balls are given then ,==èsome question was given and answe
rs had 3 choices

i) black ii)white iii)data is not sufficient

g) Very first question had 11 sentences, If figures out a number. you need to u
se these sentences and find that number.

Ex:

1) Either 11 sentence is true or 10 sentence


2) Any one of sentence 8 or nine is false.
3) .......
........
10)the required number is a perfect quare
11)the required number is a odd number

some stuff like this. These type of question takes much time. Attend such q
uestions at last.

h) Question on finding the door numbers of two friends. some 5 or 6 conditions


were given. similar kind of problem can be found in "SHAKUNTHALA DEVI PUZZLE BO
OKS"

I remember only these many questions.I don't know whether they are going to re
peat the same paper or not but one thing the pattern and the types of questions
will be same as I even compared to the previous question papers available in CHE
TANA PAPERS.

Group discussion:
The main elimination round of the SATYAM . Each group contains 8 members.For my
batch HR asked us to suggest us the topic and all 8 suggested 8 topics out of wh
ich HR choose a topic and it was " DO YOU PREFER ABROAD EDUCATION OR INDIAN EDUC
ATION " We were given two minute time to note down the points.

I thought Indian education is good but many would go for that topic. so I thoug
ht of arguing toward the ABROAD EDUCATION and I started the discussion. As I th
ought earlier all the 7 were towards INDIAN EDUCATION and only I was against it
. So I got much of the opportunity to speak and argue. i was defending all the 7
. Discussion was very nice. The discussion went on for 15 - 20 minutes( a bit lo
ng time compared to other as our discussion for good).Even HR was very friendly
and he also participated as one of the participant which gave me still more conf
idence.

TIPS for GD:

a) Be careful while you choose to discuss towards the topic or against the
topic.
b) Predict how others may depend and write downs short points in a scrap pa
per.
c) If possible try to start first , if not no problem but try to speak atle
ast not keep mum.
d) Be fixed to your attitude, it is if the opposite person argues strongly
don't leave your topic go towards others.
e) Never be in a neutral state i.e talking both towards as well as against.
One girl in our batch did so. She was accepting both the arguments and she was
eliminated.
f) It's a discussion don't make it as DEBATE ,be cool. Don't jump on oth
ers. They test your patience too when you are at heavy argument.Patience doesn't
mean silence but talk smoothly , try to convince your offenders.
g) Always have a smiling face, that will carry you towards the success.
h) Finally don't forget the conclude the discussion highlighting your stron
g points.

TECHNICAL AND INTERVIEWS:

Finally technical and HR round were together.


These questions surely based on the person who interviews you.

TECHINICAL:- Explanation of your project will a must, Only Project which you hav
e done in your final sem will be considered and you need to face many questions
on your project.So brush up your final sem project well.

Questions on FAFL .

A) Define FINATE AUTOMATA


B) NFA
C) DFA
D) RELATED QUESTIONS

Questions on c,c++

malloc,calloc, their differences,syntax

OPERATING SYSTEM

Process scheduling algorithms (ex:- round robin ............)


Virtual memory
Cache memory

Networks:

Routing algorithms.

Many more questions which I don't remember.YOUR CONFIDENCE PLAYS A KEY ROLE.

HR INTERVIEW:
As usual

TELL ABOUT YOURSELF


FUTURE ASPIRATIONS
HOBBIES
POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE POINTS IN YOURSELF.

THAT'S ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL......................

If any one got use of this information just intimate me,
