    Funny Moments
    There were some moments. Like after the online test, results were announced after an hour. When it was being announced, I just slip out my name and i didn't hear. And after all the names were ended, i was like what just happened. I was sweating but one of my friend came and said "bhai congrats yaar, nikal liya tu". And i was "abe kab suna tu mera nam, dimag na kharab kar". Then he said to check my name and i was there in the list.

    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    120 Minutes
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Written Test
    Interview Experience
    Quantitative questions are based on simple math learnt in tenth class like algebra,profit&loss, probability,simple interest etc ,reasoning requires some time but can be done if u have enough practice. Verbal questions are easy too,simple questions are framed on prepositions,sentence completion,fill in the blanks with the correct word etc.For students who take cat coaching aptitude paper would be very easy to crack.
    Round 2

    Group Discussion

    Duration
    10 Minutes
    Group Discussion Topic
    Is 33 percent reservation for women justified?
    Interview Experience
    The GD was among 15 members.No interruption on part of the moderator. I started off the discussion and gave my initial views. Then asked others to contribute. Mainly only 4 or 5 guys spoke exclusively well. Others were given a chance to express themselves but didn't make much of an impact. I also wrapped up the discussion. Finally about 5 guys from our group were shortlisted for the interviews.It is very essential for students to speak and express their views in GD,those who do not are usually ignored or asked to conclude and generally are not selected for further rounds.
    Round 3

    Technical Interview

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      Was asked about pointers, classes, structures and some basic programs in c++.The interviewer also asked me "what is a database","what is a networking",technical interview was also more or like hr interview but with bits and pieces of technical questions like the difference between C and C++ ,what is inheritance,what is polymorphism.
      Round 4

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Why accenture ?
      • Question 2: Why are u preferring IT to chemical engg ?
      • Question 3: What are your hobbies ?
      • Question 4: Did you participate in any extra curricular activities ?
      Interview Experience
      Hr interview was awesome as it dealt with a gamut of topics ranging from music to the no of girlfriends i had in the past.The standard questions were asked. Questions pertaining to your resume about your projects or trainings, achievements will be definitely asked. The HR may also ask you why accenture why not ms or cat.Some panels may ask about your strengths and weaknesses.

      Relax and converse well. Do not feel threatened in the Group discussion. Ease your way in. Ample amount of time to start off slow and then get involved. Tech interview and HR are very easy. If you've done extremely well in your GD, Tech might be looked aside.Cat coaching definitely helpsin cracking aptis.The companies mainly check your confidence and attitude when subjected to stress.Do not bulge to stress and the most important thing in an interview is DO NOT BLUFF or speak negative about yourself which affects your personality.If bluffing is inevitable bluff in a confident way, finally luck is the most important factor in placements.

      Round 1

      Test

      Duration
      60 Minutes
      Test Sections
      • Section 1: Aptitude Test
      Interview Experience
      The test was a mixture of quantitative, reasoning/analytical and verbal. It lasted for 1 hr. The questions can be prepared by using Barron's GRE, Magical Book of mathematics, RS Aggarwal Reasoning books. The essay topic was "should Pakistani players be allowed to play in the IPL". The test here is of speed. Don't take too much of pressure and don't get stuck on a particular question. Nothing was too tough and a serious preparation will be good enough if done over 3 weeks.
      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Duration
      15 Minutes
      Interview Experience
      There were two rounds of GD. GD is important for making a good impression. Remember that the impression made in this round will help later. The first topic was "people living in glass houses should not throw stones at others". I initiated the GD and many people after me repeated my points. There is always a benefit in starting first if the topic is as abstract as this because people unwittingly repeat your points which makes you and your points even stronger. The second topic was "how real are the reality shows today". I spoke third this time as I wanted to give others a chance. If you have started one GD then don't try to start the second one too. This firstly makes a bad impression of yours in front of all the other candidates and they may speak against your point which may hurt you.And second this creates an impression of a team player for you in front of the interviewers as they too are smart people and understand everything. And one very important thing please do not beat around the bush, do not argue and do not repeat other people's points.Also please try to say something related to the topic at least once.....do not stay mum.
      Round 3

      Technical Interview

      Interview Questions
        Interview Experience
        Contrary to the general perception the technical was not that easy at all. They started by asking me what was my favorite subject which i said was C++. So they asked me about general OOPS definition and concepts, difference between C and C++. Then they asked me syntax of control structures like loops and switch. Next they asked me totell the logic to convert a string like "Ram is great" into "great is Ram". Also they asked me to write the code to swap two strings. Then they asked me some pretty tough puzzles. One of those I remember is how will you measure the height of a tall pole using only a scale and a stick and nothing else during daytime without climbing it.This can be easily done using the principle of similar triangles and measuring the shadow of the scale and that of the pole. It lasted for around one hour.
        Round 4

        HR Interview

        Interview Questions
          Interview Experience
          In the HR round they started by asking me to say something exciting which i had done in my life. They asked me about my family in detail. They asked me why accenture. It lasted for around 45 minutes.

          Interview Experience
          Structure:
          1.I assumed Lucknow’s area to be 20km by 20km.
          2.I, then, divided the city into a matrix assuming it to be criss-crossed by #60 20 km roads running horizontally and vertically each.
          3.Then estimated an approximate of 30% area to be under forest cover.
          4.Divided the roads in the remaining 70% area into roads present in residential and non-residential (commercial + highways) areas. Took an estimate on number of street lights present per km in both these areas.
          5.Finally came to a number on the number of street lights taking into account that some places will have 2 lamps on a single post while others will have just 1.
          6.After that estimated the product + set-up cost for each street light.
          7.Estimated the running charges (maintenance and electricity). Electricity charges would depend on the number of operation hours and watt-rating of the lamp. Maintenance charges and profit margin was estimated.
          8.In the end a total estimate of profits was calculated.
