CAPGEMINI PAPER & INTERVIEW - 04 SEP 2008 - NAVI MUMBAI
This is omkar from D.M.C.E, Airoli, Navi Mumbai. Cap Gemini visited our college on 4th September 2008. Well let me tell u about myself, before CAPGEMINI I cleared 5 aptitude test, 1 GD, 4 TR and 3 HR and then too I was not selected. So u can think me as an experience candidate for placement) but I think my destiny was in cap Gemini. the overall procedure for the placement was as follows:-
1) U r required to fill an admit card for the online aptitude test. The online aptitude test consist of 2 sections of 50 questions.
1) Quantitative (1 to 25)
2) Logical (26 to 50). Time limit:-60 min.
There was no negative marking. There was sectional cutoff.
Quantities section consist of following question
*) how many prime numbers r between 1 to 100? (ans :-25 (1 is not prime))
*) a problem on speed, distance, time like superman flies at 25mph, spiderman flies at15mph and phantom take 2 hrs to fly from NY to DC. If speed of spiderman is twice that of phantom and distance between NY to DC is same as distance between NY to Washington (I don't remember it well) there where couple of question like
*) what is the distance between NY and DC?
*) how long will superman take to travel from dc to Washington and back?
*) I donno remember the 3rd ?
*) the largest no between (7)-(2),(3)+(4),2*(2),6+(2)(X)=square root of X
*) Arrange some numbers in descending order?
If u want to crack quantitative section u have to do following section well ;-
1-numbers (5 question)
4-simple compound interest(2)
5-profit and loss(3)
Logical Section consist of following question;-
*) a problem on if it rains on Wednesday it will rain on Friday and so on and 5 questions based on the data (the question on the data were scattered all around the paper i.e 1st question was no 26,2nd was no 30,3rd was 32,4th was 36,and 5th was 38) (easy)
*) a problem on playground i.e A,B,C,D want to play on ground P,Q,R,S.A plays on p and Q. B on Q & R. C on Q and S.5 question where asked on the data (easy)
*) a 5 question on relation i.e A is D mom. B is E mom. F is C son. B is G aunt(not sure).
And some more data was given Let me tell u, the logical question was much easy than quantitative. So first attempt logical and then quantitative. don't go for solving all question of logical; solve 15 questions of logical then go for quantitative since quantitative is difficult and there was sectional cut off. Keep last 5 minutes for guessing the answers of the remaining question.
In our college out of 80, 20 was selected for interview (since less students qualified, they cancelled the GD section and directly took the interview)
Well there were 2 interviews (TR and HR) My TR interview went like this
I - good evening sir.
