CAPGEMINI PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 26 AUG 2008 - HYDERABAD
This is somewhat related to the candidates who need guidance on MAINFRAMES. Mainframes paper is different from others... Actually there will be three rounds for you
1) WRITTEN TEST
b) Logical reasoning
In Technical again there will be 5 sections on JCL, COBOL, CICS, DB2, VSAM. Each section carries 15 marks and you have to get atleast 9 marks in each section and there is a negative marking of 0.25 for each wrong answer.
In Logical Reasoning there will be 50 questions. I dont know whether these section carries negative marking or not!!!
2) GROUP DISCUSSION
In GD they give quite general topics like "WHY INDIA IS LAGGING IN OLYMPICS", "IS IT NECCESARY TO GO TO FOREIGN FOR EDUCATION".
In interview they covered almost all topics. For me they asked so many questions on DB2 SQL and about my project. Some questions on physics also.
Concentrate more on COBOL. why bcoz in our paper COBOL is some what tougher when compared to others. Gothrough the project before going to interview and also prepare your own feedback questions. The questions what you ask them will also give some impression. I asked these questions,
(i) what about the training for the selected candidates?
(ii) How this company will help the emplyoes to improve their technical stuff?
(iii)In which areas I have to improve yet?
Results were anounced, the next day. I am very happy to say that I got placed in CAPGEMINI.
