ACCENTURE Sample Test Paper

Total Test Paper : 20th July 2007 @ F/O Engg. & Tech. Jamia Millia Islamia

Well on 20th July 2007 Accenture visited our college for campus placement..... As before the test i did lots of search work to get an idea for exam, i hope my experience will be useful for you all my friends.... I am a student of F/O Engg. & Tech. Jamia Millia Islamia I and I belong to Electrical branch.

Here is the selection procedure....
I. Written Test 60 Mins.
II. GD 10-15 Mins.
III. 1st HR 10-15 Mins /depends.
IV. 2nd HR 30-40 Mins /depends.

Total students appear for Written =round about 250
Written test cleared by =96
GD cleared = 52
1st HR = around 35
2nd Hr = 28
finally selected = 28
This was the whole format of exam... Preparation for test:

Written Test Consist of 55 question to be answer in 1 Hrs. & a short ESSAY on a given topic. Students were selected on the merit basis. I’ll say the test was very easy... If u have gone through R.S aggarwa, both verbal, nonverbal and quantitative... then its really very easy to crack the test...

Written Test consist of Three Section:
1) Verbal 20 Questions
2) Aptitude 20 Questions
3) Analytical 15 Questions

This section consisted of simple English question, Just read with concentration and u will get the answer soon though the options sometimes confuse but don't worry...
4-5 Ques. are like fill in blanks type, 3 ques. includes synonyms... There are sentences in which one word is in italics and u have to choose the right option for synonyms or antonyms.
2-3 ques. on Articles like:__ essay, which was later chosen as __ best, was written by __ student who used to be quiet in the class.
Ans: The, the, the
(These type of questions were quite easy and there were 1-2 questions that had only 1 blank as well). Then there were two passages given.1st one was very easy. Direct answers were given in passage. U need not to read the whole passage. just read the ques. 1st and then answer it.
2nd one was quite tuff. But never mind each one felt the same…

Prepare from R.S .Agarwal Quantitative aptitude book. Important topics: Venn diagram based problems, data sufficiency problems, directions, relations etc. Quite easy section simple ques. based on venn diagrams like:
1. there are 200 students in a class. 100 speak hindi. 150 speak english.how many speak both hindi and english.
Ans:: There is a particular way of solving such ques.U can do it using venn diagrams very easily. Here adding 100 and 150 and then subtracting 200, We will get the common students..
i.e 100+150- 200 =50 is the ans
There were many questions of this type and very very easy to do..Some ques. based on blood relations; Some based on direction sensing; Some based on comparison....
One ques. i remember like.....* = +, + = -, - = / and / = *. then solve the equation 3*5-12+10-9/3 something like this...

One more ques. If 1 is written as $, and 0 is written as *. Then answer the following:
Its a binary to Decimal convention ques. U need to practice in converting 8 bit binary no. into decimal very quickly.
(e.g. 4 is written as $** and 3 is written as $$)
There were almost 5-6 ques. of such type and I'll say they were really easy.....

Analytical is very easy and will save your maximum time.... Ques are like..

1.Mark the answers according to the following:
A- If all the three options match
B- If FIRST and SECOND options match
C- If FIRST and THIRD options match
D- If none of the three match

Ans: C
2.Another example:
1896.5738491023 1896.5783491023 1896.5738461023
Ans: D

And there were ques which i don't remember right now.....Important things to be remembered: Most of the questions were easy; all you need is time management and accuracy.Try to attempt the paper in two passes.
In the first pass, solve the ques. U are able to and leave others for the last mins. Then start the paper again to do the remaining questions. Doing this you may find that you have attempted 35-38 questions in half the time (in 30-33 mins).
So don’t feel low because paper is very easy!!! And paper get repeated....
after the test was over they gave us an essay topic which was


After this procedure we all went to the Auditorium for the presentation by panel.( presentation was very interesting as their were 2-3 video in that... and it is very important as for the interview's point.)
Results were announced after presentation..
.I cleared the test and got my name in 2nd group for GD... 
Cutoff was high because test was easy...

96 students cleared the test and were divided into 8 batches for GD. Each batch had 12 students in it...Mine was the second batch..
As i heard that the GD is the main elimination round in ACCENTURE

so i was quite scared and was very nervous coz its mine very first GD. In my batch 7 were selected and rejected were those who didn’t say anything in the discussion. Mainly current affairs were discussed like:
About the blue line buses in delhi, foreign coach for india or not, privatization should be allowed in india or not??? GD should be their or not in selection procedure, etc, etc,.Where as mine topic was:

Should advertising be ban for indian cricketers or not, Bingooo i love to talk about cricket and cricketers, I initiate the GD, coz some one told me that "Hashim koi bhi Topic ho, kaisa bhi Topic ho, initial tum hi karna..."And i did the same.... That was my first GD and i was behaving like, i m the master of GD... (Don't remain dumb. Just say something even if u think u r wrong. But do SPEAK. DON'T REMAIN SILENT THERE..,)

When GD was over, Jyotika Mam askd me to give the conclusion. And when i heard my name for conclusion i was sure that I’ll clear the this round. After GDs were over about 50 were selected for the first HR interview round.

My Interviews:
I had to give two interviews first HR, and second HR cum technical.
