Oracle (Programming, Open to all)

Round 1: Written Exam: Most of the questions touched topics form programming like: Data Structure LIFO FIFO concept Binary tree

*Refer to Balagurusamy book

Round 2: Group Discussion: Not conducted Round 3: Personal Interview: was of 3 rounds having 2 technical type and 1 HR PI. Technical PI questions were mainly from Data structure.

Wipro (Programming, Open to all)

The company follows the Star Hiring Program (Management centric) which basically comprises of 3 rounds. Round 1: Case Study(Written, Online): Relating to profit maximization (One of

the case studies this year was: Youre given a certain amount of money and using this money youre supposed to organise an event, saving and making as much money as you can) Round 2: Group Discussions (One of the topics this year was Should government institutions be privatised to increase their standards?)
Round 3: Personal Interview: Comprised of Behavioural and H.R. interview (Candidates were asked in detail about their interests and hobbies, Also asked about the then current financial and economical situation in Europe) *Refer to

H.R. Interview Question book



Round 1: Written Aptitude paper consisting of 40 questions to be done in 20 minutes (Maths tricks quite useful)

Round 2: HR interview relating to future plans, enquiries such as how will the
candidate add value to the company, why does he prefer a non-core job over a core one, and so on. Candidates were questioned on why is a job at FuturesFirst important to them? The Interviewers checked the candidates on confidence, persistence, ability to fight back, analytical skills (Multiply two 3 digit numbers in 30 seconds)

ZS Associates

(Analyst [BOA, BTA, BAA] 3 Profiles, Open to All)

The Recruitment programme comprised of five rounds. Round 1: Written Test (the company had allowed a maximum of 250 students to take the written test) Comprised of Maths, English and Aptitude questions. 48 students were selected.
