phew, there goes another day of rounds for me.. and fortunately the last for the time being.. also quite a memorable one, thanks to al the SIESites especially our group buddy Nisha :D
The whole sho was quite a wel organised and seemed a breeze..
I reached the college by 8 as the reporting time said, but they began around 8:30.. got some time to get chit chatting with fellow group mates.. soon we were handed out biscuits n water n the presentation began.. considering the length of the entire thing, they culd have very well handed out popcorn
It lasted for quite til 9:30 with al th videos n Q&A; sessions... then we were for a cuppa tea or coffee (though the guys who opted for coffee later realised ki that too was tea!! no coffee baby :biggrin:
Off we were to the PI dept.. enter the room n i find 2 guys Techie (T) guy and HR guy..
Remember to go through your form throughly.. i mean the one you filled during your admissions, cause they had it n were seriously scannin it..
Began with the abt yourself question, followed by a rapid fire of tech quiestions..
T: Whats difference between Comp n Electronics Engg (me a electronics engg)
T: difference in Electrical n Electronics (what the hell am i suppsed to know!!) ME: Blah Blah!! :argue:
T: Whts difference between a walkie-talkie n a cell phone? More Blah!
He asked me abt IEM!! (for al those engg, go through it!)
HR guy: Asked me abt my strengths, the characteristics of a person having those strengths.. Then a lil bit abt my hobbies.. thats is...
Lasted abt 8-10 minutes..
Then came the GD round.... We were handed this case study.. Pathetic would be an understatement :crazyeye: It consisted of a mission statement of IBM and was followed by a letter by the CEO to the employees.. In the end there were 2 questions:
i) What are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities n threats stated in the letter above??
ii) Is the letter in line with the mission statement??
I was like "what the....' there was nothing to discuss!! al one could so was the re-state the facts given in the letter!! what else can we do.,. what to debate abt??!!
Scene kuch aisa tha ki there was nobody who was willing to start!!
finally someone took the courage n we began blabbering.. n went on beating around the bush.. to be frank, there was no bush also left to beat around!!
Finally we were donw with and were headed for the apti... damn simple papaer with CET level questions.. 15 minutes, 40 questions n no -ve markings.. more stress on maths with a lil bit of english (antonyms n sysnonyms only) n DI(nly one) thrown in.. a few LR too, but those were better avoided since maths was very simple...
later we went in for the group interview.. this thing took the cake.. we were first asked for introductions individually n later given a topic 'Should India send a man to the moon'..
Each person was asked to state three points in favour or against the topic.. then each was asked by the panel to state their points.. further questions were asked on the points given.. they also threw a few GK questions to the candidates.. simple ohnes like first PM, first Prez, home minister, Martyr's day significance etc etc....
After that a lil pause n off we were....
Done with the day by 12 it was quite a lovely process n well manages.. the panels were also very good... in all a great day..
results awaited in a months time.. til then.. TPPPP!! :grn:
waise good luck to you guys n gals.. hope this experience comes of some use to you..
