level of english was good mostly reading passage was there..
LR section was easy.
1ST round was GD….70% students were selected d rejection ratio in this round was too less….u just need to speak and no one is going to give u a chance to speak so u have to grab that chance and if someone interupts u once u started speaking tell him or her politely dat “pls let me complete first ” dis is what exactly i did.so in GD u just need to speak evn if u dnt knw wat exactly u are speaking.
then comes the technical where i was rejected :
he asked me puzzles which was so unexpected….puzzles like if u have 4 tablets in which 2 tablets are of 1 kind and other two are of some different kind and the doctor has asked you to take two tablets from each from both type in d morning and the other two in the evening then how will u take them when their color,shape,size,weight everything is same.
and other puzzle was there is a pond and it has 1 flower on the 1st day,2 flowers on the second day and 4 flowers on the 3rd day and the whole pond got filled on the 20th day then on which day it will be half….
these kinds of puzzles were their which i faced and got rejected.

Interview Questions
General aptitude questions, English,Logical Reasoning..
Hello Everyone, I attended the referral drive for freshers of 2013 batch for Syntel.

The first round was the aptitude test on the 1st of March.
The second round was the GD on the 2nd of March.
The third round was the technical interview (face2face) on the 2nd of March.
The fourth round was the HR interview (face2face) on the 2nd of March.
For some of the candidates, the tech and the HR interview was conducted together.

In the aptitude,
90 questions.
30 on Analytical Reasoning,
30 on Numerical Reasoning (mathematical aptitude),
30 on Verbal Reasoning (grammar),
60 mins,
No negative marking,
One mark per question,
5 options per question (this was unusual).
In analytical,

there were questions on family-relation, coding-decoding, SAINT/LIAR, number series, etc.
Since I did not have enough time to answer all questions, I don’t know the other question types.

In numericals,
3 questions on average, time and distance, profit and loss; 2 on work and time, mixtures, trains. Questions on Pipes, Ratio, HCF, Simple interest, Compound interest, Simplification, Area.

Not very highly complex questions, but a little bit of twist should be expected.
R.S Agarwal will be more than enough to crack the Syntel apti.

In verbal,
5 questions on correct words in the blank space,
5 questions on synonyms,
2 on antonyms,
5 questions on correct order of sentences,
5 questions on spotting errors,
8 questions on a passage.

They were usual typical Syntel questions. The questions seem tough but the options give you hints. Go through the options once, properly.

In the evening I got a mail saying that I have been selected for further rounds of the interview.


The Next Day:

In GD, the topic was ‘Who is a better captain, Ricky Ponting or Saurav Ganguly’.
Girls, please don’t panic if you know nothing about Cricket.

Since all 10 participants of the group were boys, the invigilator, after a mutual agreement with us, gave us the topic.

Best part of the GD was that the invigilator had asked us to be aggressive since it was an all boys group. We listened to him.

I talked thrice for 20 secs each with a good firm voice and got rapt attention from others. Though I had an option to be aggressive, I chose to be within limits.

Don’t get carried away. It may be a trap.

If you are interrupted, keep saying ‘please let me complete, please listen to me for a while’. Being aggressive does not mean speaking on top of your voice and lose your temper. Remember, its still a discussion, not a fight.

There were some good speakers in the group. Hence 7 out of 10 got selected including me.

In the end of the GD, the candidates who did not speak much had a chance given to them by the invigilator. 1 of them grabbed the chance and the other 3 were rejected.

In the technical interview, there was a single person taking my interview.
The interviewer greeted me asked me to have a seat.
I thanked him for that.

Question 1: Tell me something about yourself [Meanwhile, he was going through my CV carefully].

Answered about me, my education, my family, hobbies.

Question 2: Your project seem interesting, can you explain it to me in detail?
Answered with the basic flow of the project, drew a few diagrams about the flow, explained the architecture and different modules. Lot of hand gestures to represent client/server interactions.

[He cross questioned me on a few things; I answered all of those].

Question 3: What do you know about ‘JMeter’? (It was mentioned it in my CV)

Question 4: Are you ready to work in shifts?

Question 5: Are you ready to relocate?

Question 5: You have mentioned 6 technical skills, what are you most comfortable with?

Question 6: Are you ready to work in analysis and testing?

Given a choice, I would definitely choose development, but if Syntel reckons that I am more utilizable in the testing domain, I will joyfully accept the domain.

Interviewer: Okay, Good. It was nice meeting you Tufail.

Me: It was nice meeting you too Sir. Have a nice day.
I left the room and shut the dooe behind me.

After 10 mins of waiting outside, a HR coordinator came to me saying “Please follow me for your HR round!”

I was like ‘phew!!!’

My HR too was taken by a single person.

In the HR interview:

The HR greeted me and asked me to have a seat.
I thanked him for that. He went through my CV carefully.

HR: Why have your marks gone down after your 10th?

Answered about being too involved in extra-curricular activities and then managing it well in the latter half of BE and pulling things off in the final year.

HR: What are your aspirations?

Answered about my long-term and short-term aspirations.

HR: What are your plus points?

Answered about me being a good leader as well as a team player, quick learner and a very social and a friendly person, a versatile individual.

HR: Give me an example of you being a good leader?

Answered about how I lead my team to the annual trophy in annual sports.

HR: Why do you want to join Syntel?

HR: Are you ready to work in shifts?

HR: Are you ready to relocate to Gurgaon?

HR: What are the areas you think you need to improve on?

Answered that I need to be more objective in a competitive environment.

HR: Asked me a puzzle about ‘2 dice which would always show dates of a month’?
Could not solve entirely. But kept trying to solve till he asked me to stop. Although, I reached till a partially correct stage (HR agreed to it).

HR: No problem, That’s all from me. Do you have any questions for me?

HR: Okay, Good. It was nice meeting you Tufail.
Me: It was nice meeting you too Sir. Have a nice day.

HR: You too. Best of luck.

On the 5th of March, in the evening, I got an e-mail that was ecstasy for me. Golden words for any fresher – “You have been selected”

All you guys, don’t worry!!! Be confident, perform well and ‘Consider IT done’. See you in Syntel.
