General Tips
Prepare well for the GDs’ and interview because, a good CV only takes you to the interview and becomes irrelevant after that. Only preparation matters in selection. Also, prioritize your sectors based on your interest, and profile. Be realistic and practical while doing this. Also, If possible, keep one or two options ready beforehand (Ph.D., MBA, civil services, startup/family business) in case you are not able to crack a good job as it prevents you from getting panic. Also, if you are shortlisted in multiple companies in a single slot, do take a friend with you to manage everything. Never be overconfident if you have a very good CV. There have been various instances where many so-called high profile people have struggled with placements due to lack of preparation. Also, do not waste your time preparing for all the sectors, as you won’t be able to become a master in any of them.

Interview Experience
Written Test ( DI questions, each involving 2-3 plots)
Round 2

Interview

Interview Experience
Started with a “Tell me something about your-self question”. I believe it was just to set the ball rolling and was not evaluated. The interviewer then gave me a case question wherein I had to make a choice between a diesel and a petrol car. There were 3 parts to the question (some candidates were asked 1 / 2 as well). The first dealt with finding the breakeven point given the basic set of cost, fuel price and fuel consumption data. Next was to find breakeven considering the money was acquired at a certain rate of interest (bond/loan). Both these results involved basic calculation and I was comfortable with them. The final part was about calculating the breakeven, again, but this time considering depreciation. This is where I was caught off guard and though I did turn up with a figure, the interviewer was not completely satisfied.

Skills Tested

Skill Tips
I was not hesitant and was reasonably confident while answering. What went wrong was perhaps the fact that I was caught unaware of how depreciation works and how it had to be included in the equation. I fumbled a lot with the equation and puzzled as to where to include terms for depreciation etc.
General Tips
Do get a basic background of the firm and also about terms in the related field.

Books really won't help,just have to make sure your not too rusty at the time of the test and interview.The interview questions are all maths oriented,there's nothing to worry about.Don't have to solve everything just have to leave a good impression with the interviewee.
General Tips
Exhausting journey as there were nearly 5 interviews in a span of 10 hours (through the night) with hardly any sleep in between. It'll definitely be a good learning experience irrespective of how things turn out.

Keep in touch with aptitude. Decent speed in maths is necessary .Familiarization with Simple Interest and Profit Loss problems will come in handy during the interview stage.

General Tips
Don’t relax too much and do prepare religiously inspite of whether or not your wingie or close friend is taking placements seriously. Also, do help out your wing mates once you are done with yours. There is no better joy than seeing a close friend landing up a dream job. Most importantly, never lose hope. This comes from a 7.1 who failed to make into the shortlists of every company for internships and still landed a job within the first 3 hours on the first day. Just keep believing you’ll do well and you would.

Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: Aptitude
Interview Experience
I got shortlisted for Capital One but could not make through the interview comprising mainly of number crunching questions. Later, I interviewed with Flipkart and got selected.
General Tips
1. I was inclined in clearing CAT from my second year onwards.

2. I did a summer project in the second year and simultaneously joined Career Launcher.

3. I didn’t prepared much for the placements and was only focussed on CAT preparations during the seventh semester.

4. I did not give as much time in resume building as given by mates since I knew that I have nothing to mention about except my CPI.

5. CAT preparations helped me strengthen my aptitude and quant skills.

6. I was able to clear the tests of various companies just with my CAT knowledge.

7. I practised maths for entire month and was pretty confident in English and a week before the main exam, I did one or two mock papers daily.

Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
There was test which was purely data analysis and calculator was allowed. So the procedure that they follow is that first they shortlist 50 people and a small case interview is followed. The case I was asked was to calculate the change in the cost of a grocery store if it has changed its model from cash on delivery with a physical store to an online portal which has cash on delivery option. As I had practiced it already I took some time to give structure and then gave 3-4 reasons for change in cost and then he gave me some numbers based on which I had to calculate the break even time period or amount . But I think he expected a little bit different approach or was searching for a different solution as I wasn't selected for the final interview sessions. I think 22 people were selected for the final interview session out of which 2 people were finally selected in Cap One.
