I will be explaining the paper details now.......first of all, the pattern was like this

There r two section Reasoning & Verbal total 40 marks
Reasoning --25 verbal--- 15
CUTOFF --13 --- 8

Note: The paper was little bit tougher than the other comp….if the competition will more they’ll extend the cutoff in the last……BUT MOST IMP THING IS THAT IF U HAVE GOOD PERCENTAGE IN 10TH ,12TH AND IN ENGG (CGPA) U WILL GET THE BETTER ADVANTAGE THAN OTHER. Because most of my friend also cleared the apti test but they were not short listed due to the less %age in 10th ,12th & in engg…But I was the university 2nd topper and I have good %age in 10th and 12th and in engg (80,79,70) I was being short listed for interview…

There are mainly two interviews first is TI and another is HR.
The TI is little bit tougher than HR….if u have cleared Ur TI by full confidence….ur chances for selections will Inc...Friendssssss be cool & confident at the time of interview….and before going to the interview don’t forget to take Xerox of each and every mark sheet and two passport photo….otherwise they give u tension at the main time of interview…
