It had 2 sections- number series(20 Q) and Quantitative(20 Q). Time duration was 90 min.. The clock time provided for us was entirely different 4m other placements. Each question had 2min n 15sec clock n 30sec break if necessary. Once u cross that question, you can not go back to it.So think-analyse-work before u opt 4 an answer..

2. Eng summary writing


Only the shortlisted students were allowed to attend this. Here 2-3 eng passages were given. We were asked to write d summary f it , in the pattern f an email wid just 5-6 sentences. The sentence formation,spelling of the words are important . Dont use shortcut forms of words. Let it be formal.
At the end of the day 500 students were shortlisted for further rounds.

3. Group Discussion


Each group was of size 12 in GD . The topic given for us was,"Indian education system more concerned about the marks of the students now a days, but not on the knowledge". Dont be idle here. Speak out our views towards it. Your communication skills,knowledge abt d topic matters here.
