first round pattern;
You will be given a question booklet that contains many papers on different
topics. Some are compulsory while some are optional (i.e. you can take this or
that). All the papers are objective type.
Aptitude will be your first section-aptitude will be quite easy (simple
distance, time, numbers etc.)
problems. Youíll probably also have one question like the GRE analytical section
(i.e. you will be given a paragraph followed by a set of 4/5 questions based on
that paragraph). This section is easy but donít spend too much time on any
question (time will be a factor) for some of the questions u can easily work out
the solution backwards (I mean you can form an equation and then substitute the
choices given in your answers instead of trying to solve equations)
Next you will have to take 2 papers on programming languages : you can choose
between C/C++, Java and VB. Just glance thro the 3 papers and choose 2 which you
are comfortable with. I think C/C++ and Java will be easy. Time is not a problem
for these papers.
Next you will have to take one of the database related papers (I think there is
oracle and something
else) oracle seemed easy (though I have never worked in oracle)-questions are
basic and even if you donít know oracle you could just try to find some tutorial
on the net.
Then you have choice of paper between Windows Server 2000 and Unix (Iím not sure
of these choices since I took the test in May). Again the questions will be easy
Well, thatís all there is in all I think u have to take 5 papers (apt., 2
languages, 1 database and 1 OS)
So, those of you taking your test best of luck-just stay calm-if you have
studied oracle,unix it will be
very easy (for others like me just relax and give it your best shot-you have
nothing to lose).
Don't worry abt the so called english test held by covansys....i was called a
few weeks back (for the 2nd round) and they had mentioned the same stuff to us
also.....but the english test was: write an essay on "should every indian know
at least two indian languages".they gave us 30 minutes or so for the
essay.....then GD was just a formality.....don't worry about it....just talk
everyone called will attend the interview....and in the interview they'll ask
you about the papers that you chose for the written test (if u remember for the
covansys test we had a choice of papers like C++/vb/java and oracle etc...)....tehy'll
usually ask you what paper you chose and then they'll ask some basic questions
from that subject....
don't worry too much.....just brush up a little with whatever subject you wrote
the test (if you took C, brush up with that)....
don't worry too much abt vocabulary....just keep your language simple and
express your ideas properly.....i think the same process will be followed this
time as well (i doubt whehter they will give you any english test paper)....
