Capegemini Interview Experience
Friends, I am sharing my Experience of this drive. Hope so, this will add some value to your preparation and also give you some boost in your confidence level.Capgemini conducted this drive in ITER, Bhubaneswar(ODISHA).
Total student appeared : 3060
Total got selected : 75
Different Round: ( Written , GD , PI )
1st Round: Written (Aptitude, Reasoning,Verbal)
75 Questions : 90 minutes; Each section having 25 qestions,Each have sectional cutoff, For each wrong answer -0.25 marks
Note: Reasoning section has 2 Flow Chart ,each having 4-5 Question which is difficult one, So, Prepare well about Flow chart Problem. And also one PI chart problem having 4 Questions.
In this I attempted 57 Question , but more than 15 Question from each sections.(Perhaps sectional cutoff would be 50-60%.)
Tips (given by HR): Don't try to tick all Question, First try 15 from each, then 5 from each,If you get time then try other remaining.For this round about 400 members (3rd Batch) appeared : 47 cleared.
2nd Round : Group Discussion(GD : 30 minutes)
Our Topic : "Effect of Social Media on our Society"
Note: Speak specific to the Topic , don't divert it to other topic, Understand topic well then speak. In our case same thing happened.Due to this reason, HR scolded our team.Then I entered into the GD ,I was 7th member(out of 10) to jump into the discussion, but I spoke well to the Topic.Never think that who speaks 1st or 2nd get selected,the thing is that when you get your chance speak perfect to the point,you will surely get so don’t loose your heart if you donot start.
For this round 10 were in Group : 6 got chance for PI.
