HEXAWARE PATTERN & INTERVIEW – 15 APR 2008 – BHUBANESWAR
I am Tanmoy Parida 4m ITER, Bhubaneswar. Hexaware visited our college 4 campus selection on 15- 16th April, 2008
It had 3 rounds
1. WRITTEN ROUND:
It had 2 sections.
i) Aptitude + English + Reasoning
As I am an Electrical student language or database Qs were not there. We had Qs 4m Electrical machines, control system, AEC, Microprocessor and DEC. This was also 4 ENTC & AE&I students. Mechanical students were not allowed.
Aptitude section was relatively easier than technical. If u have done R.S. Aggarwal then the 1st section is not a thing 2 b worried of. But technical section need basic fundamentals of all d mentioned subjects.
Total 100 Qs were there and 1hr was given 2 solve that. Be careful because there were sectional cut off as well as overall cut off. Around 250 students appeared 4 written test n 123 cleared it. Luckily I was one of them who got selected.
2. GD ROUND:
This is the elimination round. In this round they basically look 4 creativity n presence of mind n also confidence. Don’t panic. 12 guys were there in my group. Ours GD was a bit diff. We were divided into 3 groups n each group were given a topic each, like we had THINKING BIG, LADDER TO SUCCESS. We were told to give an instance or make a play so that the ideas of d topic that we got come out. Also we were told not to mention d name of d topic directly during our presentation. We were given 2 minutes 2 prepare. Then the instructor asked each group one by one 2 give their presentation. After we all finished they asked everybody 2 give their views n draw conclusion 4m all d 3 topics that were given 2 us.
Other groups had normal gd, some topics were JOINT FAMILY Vs nuclear family, role of govt. in IT sector, Arrange marriage Vs love marriage etc.
35 students including me cleared this round.
