CTS Placement Paper Based on Candidate Real time Experience February 2015

 I am Sricharan Andugulapati, a final year undergraduate student of Electronics and Communications Engineering from Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies. I am here to share my experience with the selection procedure of Cognizant Technologies Solutions pool drive held at Vagdevi Engineering College, Warangal.

        A written test has been conducted on 21st February and it has a total of 55 questions with 60 minutes with the following sections,
1.      Analytical & Non-Verbal Reasoning.(30 Questions - 30 Minutes)
2.      Verbal Section.(25 Questions - 30 Minutes)

After that, results are announced on 25th February. Sectional Cut-off is there. Then, the interview has been scheduled on 7th March. We are all planned to go there by bus on 6th March. It is moved at around 7:30PM. Having a sleep on the day before interview, that too under those baffling conditions, is a herculean task. But the thought of traveling in a special bus, made it possible. Even that has let me to prepare for a while in the middle. We have reached Warangal at around 1:45AM. There rooms are booked in a lodge and I have a small nap for that night. In the next morning, we have the reporting time at 9:00AM. We have reported at 9:30. We are given the seats in the auditorium there.
There the names of the candidates are called for interviews. My turn came at 6:30PM. My Technical interview has been started at 7:00PM. It is undergone for 40 minutes like this,
