Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
55 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Quant and Logic
  • Section 2: Quant and Logic
  • Section 3: Language
  • Section 4: Creativity
  • Section 5: Personality Assessment
  • Section 6: Data Analysis
Interview Experience
It was a very different and exiting test as compared to other company aptitude tests. It was more of a fun test rather than a quant test. Negative marking was present. The test was divided into two parts: 60 mins and 30 mins.
The 60 mins part consisted of 4 sections:
1. Quant and Logic
2. Language
3. Creativity
4. Personality Assessment
Here, you need to use your time well. You can switch between these sections.
Quant was only 10 questions, which were quite easy.Main questions were based on Number theory, probability, profit & loss.
Then there were logical reasoning questions where you need to put in proper thinking, which requires time. Personality assessment had tricky questions like "would you lie for the company", "would you use office stationery for personal home use", "What is the joke made of you often and how would you rate it?".Answered these quickly and truly.
The 30 mins part also consisted of 2 sections:
1. DATA ANALYSIS(Write what all you infer from the given table)
2. Picture description(What do you infer from the image below)
These sections were very easy. No preparation required as such. Just apply the common sense and linguistic skills. Make sure grammar is correct. Be precise. Long essay not required.
Interview Tips
Do not panic.
The time alloted is plenty. Use it well.
Most of the Personality assessment and quant questions had come from the Mu Sigma sample question list, which is available online through mu apt.
Answer only those questions which you are sure about.
Round 2

Video Synthesis

Interview Experience
A video will be played for 17 minutes. The requirement was to note down in points, what I had inferred from the video. The video played would be of any genre. It may be a short inspirational movie scene or the CEO lecture. For me, it was a promotional and summarizing lecture given by the CEO. I was given 10 minutes and I had to write what I had inferred from the video on a small card, provided by the recruiters.
Interview Tips
Note here that it was expected that we write 3 main takeaways and NOT the summary. Do not fill the card with an essay. Put down three strong bullet points. Do not write what was already there in the video.
Round 3

Group Discussion

Duration
20 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
What are Interconnected problems? Discuss examples
Interview Experience
We were a group of 10 and the GD went on for about 20 minutes.We were told that we would be judged on how much we speak, our understanding of the topic, the amount of factual data we put in etc. The recruiter was observing us all the time and noting down his observations,each time we said a point. At the end of the discussion, the recruiter himself stopped us and asked each one of us to conclude the discussion.
Interview Tips
1) Use the time given to think properly and formulate proper set of points.
2) Stick to your points and put them forward convincingly.
3) Be loud and confident. Look at your group members while speaking and not at the recruiter.
4) Listen to what the others have to say. Make a mental/written note of all the relevant points discussed, which will help you while concluding. If you disagree with anyone's point, convey it politely.
5) Do not dominate over others.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
My personal interview was a combination of HR and a bit of technical. Basic questions like "tell me about yourself", "hobbies", "tell me about your family","are your comfortable coming to Bangalore", "what do you feel about our package" were asked. Apart from that, I was asked how many branches does my college have, Why I chose Information Technology, Which subjects are different between Computer Engineering and Information Technology. The recruiter also asked me what was my favorite subject. He told me to introduce the contents of the subject to him and asked a few technical questions on it. I was also asked "If I am the store manager of McDonald's what will be the day to day decisions I will be taking?". I had already thought of an answer for this question since I had read it on ambition box before the interview day. I thank ambition box for making me acquainted with it.
Interview Tips
1. Relax. If you have reached this level, you have very high probability of being selected. PI is the easiest and the most fun round in Mu Sigma.

3. There is no need to be very formal but maintain politeness and honesty while answering.
4. Be sure that you know why you want to work with an Analytics company. Specially if you are a coder, they ask you why you chose Analytics over Software development.

Prepare these basic questions:
1. Tell Me About Your Self?
2. What are your Strengths?
3. What are your Weakness?
4. Why you want to join our company?
5. Why I Should hire you?
6. Are you willing to Relocate or travel?

18. On a scale of 1 to 10, rate me as an interviewer?
19. If not selected what will you do?
20. Are you overqualified for this position?
21. Are you already placed in any company?

Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
55 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Quant and Logic(Mathematics - Probability)
  • Section 2: Language(Mastery in English)
  • Section 3: Creativity(General Aptitude)
  • Section 4: Personality Assessment
Interview Experience
Piece of cake it was! Most of the questions were MCQ type. I was just so cool and started solving the questions at my own pace. I had four sections as mentioned above, but they were a mixture of all difficulty levels! First section took a lot of my time as they were mathematical and needed solving. Second and third sections were easy - Just applying the common sense and linguistic skills. The fourth section is the easiest with only two choices for each MCQ. This section had two descriptive questions - "Who is your favorite superhero and why?" , "What is the joke made of you often and how would you rate it?". Answered these quickly and truly(Do not waste time on such questions)!  
There was also another test immediately after this with 30 minutes duration. Two descriptive type questions - DATA ANALYSIS (Write what all you infer from the given table),  Picture description(What do you infer from the image below). Both these questions were general.
Interview Tips
Concentrate more on PROBABILITY, PERMUTATION AND COMBINATION. But Don't leave other topics.
Aptitude is a test on how fast you use your common sense and logic to solve a problem.
Do not 'write a lot' for the descriptive questions - be brief and specific, use proper grammar.
If you are attempting the online test for the first time or even if you are experienced, please read the "Instructions" TWICE.
Once you login by providing the details you will see the clock that has already started its countdown! Do not panic. Time has never stopped and it never will!! Just start attempting the questions right away.   
Prepare well, never lose hope, again I insist on PROBABILITY!
Round 2

Video Synthesis

Interview Experience
Only the shortlisted candidates will be called for this round.A video will be played for about 15 minutes. The requirement was to note down in points, what I had inferred from the video. The video played would be of any genre. For me, it was a promotional and summarizing lecture given by the CEO. I was given just 20 minutes and I had to write what I had inferred from the video on a A6 size card, provided by the recruiters after a pre-placement talk(PPT).
Interview Tips
Pick a suitable seat in the hall from where you can see the video and  hear the audio clearly.
Concentrate on the video when it is played. Don't try to take notes when the video is being played as you might miss some key points!
When you are asked to write, recap the video as many times and decide what points are so strong and encouraging. While writing, stick to one style of bullets, use same size font (handwriting).
Again, be careful with the grammar!
Round 3

Group Discussion

Duration
30 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
'Based on the video played in the previous round'
Interview Experience
All candidates who attended the video synthesis round were allowed to attend group discussion. My group was asked to discuss about a part of the video that was played before and we were given thirty minutes. The recruiter was so cool and he himself took part in the discussion. Using valid points and wit in speech is the only path to success in GD.
Interview Tips
Be casual in the way you speak and at the same time prove you are ready to be a professional.
The selection is based on - How you listen, How and when you speak, How and when you give a chance for others to speak.
Make a plan on how the GD should happen if you get a chance to meet your group members before the GD.
Don't speak invalid and inappropriate subject just for the sake of speaking.
The most important part is 'breaking and entering' (This is where I missed, so pay attention!). The members of your team may break the plan to get an advantage over the others by not letting them speak. If one of your group members does this, raise your voice very little and ask for a chance. Even then if he continues, depending on the situation, employ your wit and break him/her and oppose their point. 
Remember : If you speak TOO MUCH, you lose. If you seldom speak, you lose.
It is better to practice GD with your friends from now.

Motivation for applying
Not an IT company!!!!!Data analysis and Decision Making are their prime fields. Mathematics and finance enthusiasts please apply!The company is in Bangalore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Funny Moments
The most funny moment is when you walk out of the hall knowing you are not selected and with a determination to prepare better and there you see others (the likes of you) 'scorching' the name of the company for hiding their inability! "Dude, I wonder if you will ever get out of your trauma!

Interview Experience
Aptitude of easy level.
Round 2

Problem Statement

Interview Experience
Learn the basics of a programming language. The problem solving round involved a psuedocode .For the video synthesis round question of our batch, Google "Toast for change" , there is a 5 minute video clipping and we were asked to synthesize it ( NOT summarize it!!! )
Round 3

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Consider a local hotel brand in a city that has established itself over a long span of time. However, due to the upcoming foreign brands it's popularity has reduced to an extent. So the management has decided to use a website to promote it. Discuss the criteria that should be considered while selecting a website.
Interview Experience
The gd consisted of two sections. In the first section the students had to discuss the points to be considered while selecting a website. Some of the points we had put up included the site should provide tour packages which is favoured by a lot of people, the site should be linked to applications like Google maps which can provide access to information like location etc,
During the second part of the gd, the students were given five minutes to discuss and decide 3 main points out of all the points discussed previously.
After the gd, the students were asked to 1) write down all the points discussed in the sheets provided 2) write down all the points which they have not mentioned during the gd but are relevant the topic
Interview Tips
1) Use the time given to think properly. A proper set of points goes a long way in improving your performance during the gd
2) Read newspapers and articles on such topics. Will give an idea about such management issues
3) Be loud. Makes one look more confident
4) Listen to what the others have to say. The judging panel looks for a good speaker and a good listener. The advantage is twofold: firstly if you are out of points you can simply get something to speak about by combining what the others are saying and contradicting a few other like "I completely agree to what so and so have said but I would'nt quite agree to this because .....". The judges will note you as a good observer
5) Donot dominate over others. A group discussion is not a debate where you have to take a side.
6) try to add numbers and statistics in the discussion cause that's what analytics company want from their employees
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
The HR PI was quite casual, slightly informal. I was asked about family members etc, followed by a question about the reason for my drop year. The first question after the introduction was "tell me about yourself". This question can be predicted as "tell me about your qualities that make you fit for our company". I used this question to describe all the traits that made me suitable for them, and normally I justify each quality I mention immediately. Also I would advise you to emphasize qualities that set you apart from the crowd and make you fit for their company. The HR asked me why I intended to join an analytics company if all my projects were based on biomedical. My answer to the question was that my projects were all soft computing based, and hence most of the work I do involves using a set of data to predict something which is quite similar to what they do in Mu Sigma. The only difference lies in the fact that the work I do is based on bioloigical data and biological parameters and they used market and business data( please note that I could only bring this up since most of my work is based on neural networks and soft computing, please do prepare something to relate what you have done to what they do or simply mention you were always interested in analytics and playing with nos from the start).
I was asked about a few projects of mine mentioned in my CV, I was asked to explain them, I was asked a few questions on neural networks(they only asked them cause I had mentioned it earlier)
In the end the HR asked me if there is anything I would like to ask him, so I asked him to criticize me so I could work on the points where I lack. He gave me 2 points.
Interview Tips
Points to be noted about the hr pi:
1) Observe the nature and personality of the PI. The video presentation at the beginning of the placement process gives a very good idea about the hr's personality, the work culture etc. So use this information to predict his nature and present yourself accordingly
2) Relax. In my opinion the hr PI is the easiest and the most fun round in Mu Sigma.
3) Use the tell me about yourself and the free question well. What you ask and what you say will give a very good glimpse of your true personality
4) There is no need to be very formal and robotic but maintain politeness while answering.
