ARICENT PAPER ON 13TH JUNE,2008

First of all I would like to tell u dat most of things depend on luck too…..

1. WRITTEN : -CONTAINS 4 PARTS
*ANALYTICAL ABILITY
*ATTENTION TO DETAIL
*DATA STRUCTURES & ALGORITHMS
*C OR C++ OR JAVA

ALL QUESTIONS ARE OF OBJECTIVE TYPE. The paper was not tough enough but DS & C paper was a little bit hard.
ONLY WRITTEN IS THE ELIMINATION ROUND.
SECTIONAL CUT OFF IS THERE

After written exam in there was a critical incidence form filling round in which you'll have to answer some questions but be sure that whatever u write u must remember at the time of HR interview. They will ask these questions.

After that there was a GI round (GROUP INTERVIEW… OR ….GROUP DISCUSSION)

IN this we had a group of 8 and that was divided into two parts & we had given a topic CIVILIAN AWARDS IN DEMOCRACY. Both the group got script –onr on favour & one on against & u had to b with ur team.(this is nt elimination round.)

Then after dat we had one on one interview. (TECH + HR)
AND EACH STUDENT HAD ITERVIEW FOR 1 OR MORE HOURS.
