Analysis Examination details regarding  IBPS PO CWE 2013 (Exam held on 19th /20th Oct 2013)

The IBPS P.O. On-line Exam, one of the most reputed exams in the Indian banking sector, was held on the 19th (Saturday) and 20th (Sunday) of October 2013. The next set of dates for the exam are 26th/27th of Oct 2013 and 9th/10th of Nov 2013. It has been ascertained from students' assessment that overall, the examination was moderate, comparatively easier than the one held last year.


Duration of the Examination 120 Minutes
Number of sections 5
Negative Marking 0.25 of marks assigned to the question
Total Questions 200
Quantitative Aptitude 50 questions
Reasoning 50 questions
English Language 40 questions
General Awareness 40 questions
Computer Knowledge 20 questions


IBPS CWE Exam sectional analysis is as follows : 

IBPS PO CWE  Quantitative Aptitude : 

In general, the difficulty level of this section can be pegged at moderate to difficult. It was reported that there were no questions on Simplifications and Approximations. This was something unexpected and caught students off-guard. Since the above were replaced by questions from various topics of Arithmetic, which usually take more time to solve, this section was time-consuming. 
The break-up of the 50 questions of this section is as : 
Data Interpretation – 20 
Number series – 5 
Quadratic Equations (Comparisons) – 5
Questions from individual topics of Arithmetic – 15
Data Sufficiency – 5

IBPS  CWE  Reasoning : 

According to the feedback received from candidates who have appeared for this exam, the difficulty level of this section can be termed as more or less moderate. As has been the pattern ever since the exam has gone on-line, this time too non-verbal questions were conspicuous by their absence. 
The break-up of the 50 questions in this section is as : 
Deductions – 5 
Data Sufficiency – 5 
Input/output – 5 
Decision Making – 5 
Puzzles – 15 
Other topics – 15 ( Symb & Not based Conclusions, Assumptions / Inferences / Cause and effect, Direction sense / Word digit formation / ranking etc.) 

IBPS CWE  General Awareness : 

It was reported by students that most of the 40 questions in this section were from Banking Awareness and Indian Economy. Current affairs also formed the basis for a few questions. The difficulty level can be stated as easy to moderate. 

IBPS CWE English Language: 

As reported, this section can be called a difficult one, as the Comprehension questions, which students dread, dominated this section. In one of the slots on the 19th of October, there were two passages with 15 questions and in one of the slots of the other day, the two RC passages had 10 questions each. 
Earlier, when the exam used to have 50 questions in this section, this kind of pattern was common. But with almost half of this section dominated by questions on reading comprehension, students found it very lengthy and exhaustive. Had these questions been substituted by those of verbal ability, it could have become easy for candidates to work on this section with greater speed. The break-up of the 40 questions is as : 
Reading Comprehension – 15 -20
Cloze Test – 10
Para formation Questions – 5 (with six sentences to sequence)
Grammar – 5 - 10

IBPS CWE Computer Knowledge : 

The questions in this section were reported to be easy. No great preparation was needed to tick these multiple choice questions. In fact, answers to a few questions could be worked out by looking at the various choices that each of these questions had. As compared to other IBPS exams, this section presented very little challenge to students. 
This section was reported to be easy in all the slots on 19th and 20th Oct 2013. 

In short all students opinion that the 2013 IBPS CWE examination was moderate difficulty level.  Question paper lengthy and time consuming

Robert Bosch recruitment process and aptitude test experiences


Robert- Bosch Interview Experience


My name is Renuka Munagala. I am writing my Interview Experience here. There are three rounds in the selection procedure of Robert- Bosch. The three rounds are 


Round 1 : Online test ( It consisted of technical, verbal, aptitude and logical reasoning questions )

  1. Technical = 35 questions
  2. Verbal, aptitude and logical reasoning=25 questions
  3. (Each question carries 1 mark and there was a negative marking of 0.5 marks for each question) 

Round 2 : Technical Interview


Round 3 : HR Interview


The questions asked to me in all the rounds are given below :


A] Round 1- Online Test Questions :


a) Online Test Technical Questions 


For this section please refer the following  subjects :


Digital Electronics

  1. Code conversions(Binary code, Gray code, Excess-3 code and others like 8421, 2421 etc)

  2. K-map

  3. Combinational circuits and sequential circuits differences and examples for both  (  ( Combinational:adder,subtractor, decoder, encoder, multiplexer, demultiplexer, magnitude comparator. Sequential: latch, flip-flop, shift registers, counters(very important… also refer difference between synchronous and asynchronous counters, and various conditions for maximum clock frequency to be applied) )

  4. Moore and Mealey models differences

  5. Multivibrators using logic gates

  6. Astable multivibrator

  7. Bistable multivibrator

  8. Monostable multivbrator

Questions asked are :


1) One question on zener diode, its temperature coefficient was given


(I don’t remember the exact value) say voltage decreases at x V/0C(some volts per degree centigrade) and voltage was asked for some other temperature


2) Conversion of binary code to gray code


3) Small circuits were given using AND,OR, EXOR gates and asked what would be the functioning of the circuit(options were edge detector, zero detector) if you analyze the circuit assuming the inputs as 00,01,10,11 you can figure out the functioning of the circuit


4) Few questions on combinational and sequential circuits


       a) ROM is what kind of circuit---?  


Answer : Combinational Circuit (built with the help of decoders and programmable OR gate)


       b)  Demultiplexer and Decoder


       c)  Circuit was given on decoder(2:4 decoder) and output was asked )


       d)  How do we overcome the “Race Around Condition(RAC)” in JK flip flop..?? 


Answer:  (i) Use Master-Slave JK flip flop

               (ii) Choose flip flop propagation delay Δt such that


                         tp < ∆t <T 


             Where  ∆t =  Praopagation delay of flip flop

                         T  =  Clock frequency

                         tp =  Pulse width of the clock applied


(RAC occurs only in level triggered FFs. It does not occur in edge triggered FFs)


e) Setup time, Hold time and Propagation delay  in a flip flop


f) Counters – given some n- bit asynchronous counter and propagation delay of the flip flop used, asked to find the maximum clock frequency to be applied :


Answer:  fmax=1/(n*tp)  (only for asynchronous counter… add -stroke pulse width to the denominator and then compute if it is given in the question)


Where   fmax = Maximum clock frequency to be applied

                    n =   n bit counter

                   tp = Propagation delay of the flip flop


g) Circuit was given and output was asked. It was a counter… may be a ring counter

h) One question modulus of counter


     i)  Frequency at the output 2nd  flip flop in a 4 bit counter (don’t remember which counter it was)


     ii) Ring counter(N bit): output frequency at each FF(flip flop) is f/N

     iii) Johnson counter(N bit): output frequency at each FF is f/2N

     iv) Asynchronous counter(N bit): output frequency at each FF (starting from LSB) is f/2^i  

          where i is  FF no. from LSB


5) Two questions on ROM- no. of address lines were given and the size of the memory was given and no of data lines was asked


Answer : If no of address lines were x, no of data lines were y, then Size of the memory=  2^x y


6) Two questions on Analog to digital converters(ADCs)-  N bit ADC, Vmax is given, find the resolution


7) Two questions on 8085 microprocessor(flag register) and 8051 microcontroller

d) Online Test Verbal  Questions 


In verbal one paragraph was given and four questions were asked from it, two synonyms, one antonym,2-3 questions on choose the correct word that fills the blank. 


B ] Round 2 - Technical Interview Questions :


1.  Tell me about yourself ( while I was answering this question, he checked my resume)


2.  Asked me about the mini project I had done, I had explained him in detail about the project (at least 1 mini project is necessary since some were rejected for not having done any mini project. If you had done any mini project, prepare thoroughly about it, not just the project, anything other things associated with it say current  trends in it, what components are used and why etc. if you can explain with confidence your project, then you have won half battle )


3. Difference between microcontroller and microprocessor, explain with the help of a diagram


4. Asked me if I knew anything about the processors. I said I knew 8085 microprocessor. He asked me to explain it with the help of the architecture of it, while I was explaining about the processor, he asked me few definitions related to it like explain how a stack pointer with the help of instructions, what is program counter, what is the flag register and what are the various bits present in that register, few instructions were asked like explain what happens for MVI data, what is the accumulator and what is its use, what are various interrupts present in the processor, their priority order, what happens when an interrupt occurs, explain me what happens with the program counter and stack pointer content  when an interrupt occurs, what is an interrupt routine, what are status signals, frequency used in it.


5. He asked how much strong I am in C. I said I know only basics of it. He asked me some basic questions related to C programming like what is a preprocessor directive,  what is a structure explain me with the help of a example, what is pointer  and write the syntax of it, what is a qualifier, what is an enum (make sure that you have basic idea about the programming languages you have written in the resume)
