Candidate-Experiences |   11420


Hi friends,

It is a privilege for me to write about my experience at Capgemini campus interview. At the outset I want to mention the details of the eligibility criteria:

Total 20 no. of colleges of Orissa have taken participation. The testing authorization was given to Merittrac, Kolkata. First they have checked our ID cards of college and permit us to give the written exam. The duration of test was 60 minutes. The no. of sections are:
1. Verbal Ability of 20 questions (1 passage of 5 multiple questions, fill in the blanks with adequate tense/preposition/phrasal verb/article etc)
2. Quantitative ability of 20 questions (2 visual reasoning, easy questions from time,speed, distance/ SI/Compound interest/Alegation)
3. Reasoning of 15 questions containg assertion and reason type, 5 questions of logical reasoning and some moderate questions

My dear friends, it is not plausible for you to attend all 55 questions in 1 hour duration as the questions were tricky and not so easy. But we have managed to attend utmost questions we could attend. One positive thing was there was no negative marking.

After 3-4 hours, Capgemini people have given their presentation regarding their company's financial result, exposure in global market and products, service and after 1 hour the result came and 243 out of 700 students have cleared the exam. Then suddenly group discussion was started.

The group was made up of 16 members. Surprisingly VP of Capgemini Esteemed Sir Mr. Hota sir have conducted our GD. The topic was : "Few parties should take participation in National level election, local parties should take part of local governance." I have given 4-5 points. My friends in GD they see five things: Confidence, Communication, Clarity, Attitude and listening. As it was just like a fish market not worthing of team work, I felt that it would be good to be silent and listen to others after giving 3-4 points of the discussion. Finally we 2-3 people summarized the discussion and surprisingly 14 out of 15 group members were selected for the next round.

Total 186 out of 243 were selected for PI round. The personal interview started in time. My interview was just like:

Me: May I come in Sir
