i Gate Placement Paper Pattern

[Paper - 5]

The selection procedure is:

1.Aptitude Test

2.GD

3.Technical and HR interview

Aptitude Test:

15 question no choices, no worksheet will be provided,no negative marks, u have to work in the space provided in the question paper

some topics are Time and Distance, Probability, Problems on numbers, Average, Age, Profit and Loss and some other topics in RS Agarwal.. that is enough

GD: The topic i recieved is "TRAFFIC", the GD was about 20 minutes, There were about 10 students in one GD and 5 of them got selected, the HR asked everyone to tell their views about the topic and then started the discussion. I have talked a few times only but at appropriate time, Just tell ur points that is enough, avoid unnecessary arguments. Just talk and dont be mum.

When the HR itself ask u to talk(during first few minutes), make use of that opportunity, in a GD we have to grab our chance, so when the chance comes make the best use of it.

Techinical and HR interview:

There were only 2 HR questions for me

1.Tell me about ur self

2.How u will be in iGate after 5 years

The remaining were only Technical questions, there were some question on

DBMS and some SQL queries

Java(Basics) and other Programming Languages

Be Honest, if u dont know about some topics admit that u dont know for all IT students it is a must that u will be asked questions on DBMS and SQL queries.

I have presented a paper and i have put that in my resume, so he asked about that paper also,if u have something like that please know everything in ur paper, this will also help u to divert the HR to a place where ur strong, Best of Luck . Some questions that i Remeber, i have put here
