ARICENT PAPER ON 13TH JUNE,2008
First of all I would like to tell u dat most of things depend on luck too ..
1. WRITTEN : -CONTAINS 4 PARTS
*ATTENTION TO DETAIL
*DATA STRUCTURES & ALGORITHMS
*C OR C++ OR JAVA
ALL QUESTIONS ARE OF OBJECTIVE TYPE. The paper was not tough enough but DS & C paper was a little bit hard.
ONLY WRITTEN IS THE ELIMINATION ROUND.
SECTIONAL CUT OFF IS THERE
After written exam in there was a critical incidence form filling round in which youll have to answer some questions but be sure that whatever u write u must remember at the time of HR interview. They will ask these questions.
After that there was a GI round (GROUP INTERVIEW OR .GROUP DISCUSSION)
IN this we had a group of 8 and that was divided into two parts & we had given a topic CIVILIAN AWARDS IN DEMOCRACY. Both the group got script onr on favour & one on against & u had to b with ur team.(this is nt elimination round.)
Then after dat we had one on one interview. (TECH + HR)
AND EACH STUDENT HAD ITERVIEW FOR 1 OR MORE HOURS.
