CTS Interview Experience - VIZAG, 19th DEC 2015


Hi everyone, I am Vamsi Krishna from GIET Engineering College, Rajahmundry. Attended the pool drive conducted at GVP Engineering College around 4000 members attended to the drive. The whole process consists of 4 rounds.

1. GD/JAM.
2. WRITTEN TEST.
3. TECHNICAL.
4. HR.

1. GD/JAM:

This round plays a crucial role for your selection. We selected JAM. We entered into the discussion room. Our batch consists of 30 students out of which the HR selected only 10. I choose the topic plastics.

The key point for this round is your body language and way of communication. Just be confident and deliver your stuff and the time limit was less than a minute.

2. WRITTEN TEST:

After JAM round, the next round was written and it was conducted by MERIT TRAC. This consists of two sections.

a) Reasoning
b) Verbal

There is no negative marking in written test but the only constrain is time. We have to attempt 50 questions in 55 min.

Reasoning part consists of following areas.

- Syllogism (4-5).
- Number series (2-3).
- Data sufficiency (3-4).
- Visual reasoning (3-4).
- Data interpretation (3), etc.

English part consists of the following areas - 10 from reading comprehension (try at the end).

- Jumbling sentences (4-6).
- Subject verb agreement (2-3).
- Sentence correction (3-4).

It was easy with basic questions.

PREPARING MODELS IN INDIABIX IS ENOUGH TO CRACK THIS ROUND.

Around 500 members are shortlisted for technical.

3. TECHNICAL:

On 19th they conducted technical interview around 230 members attended on 19th, my turn came at 11:00.

I entered into the room and waiting for panel.

INT: Good morning with a smile. Take your seat.
ME: Good morning sir.

INT: Ok Vamsi, introduce yourself?
ME: Told.

INT: Good. Tell me about the skills in your resume?
ME: I am from ECE, so I included MATLAB and C language in my resume and explained.

INT: Ok then, take the paper and write a C program for palindrome number.

INT: What is your favourite subject?

ME: I studied but I forget it, I said this thing to the TR he said OK.

He gave me some puzzles and I solved 6 out of 8.

INT: Explain sampling and quantisation.
ME: Told.

He asked some questions in my core subjects. The process took 1 hour. He asked me to wait for the result. The coordinator came and announced the technical result out and 7 members cleared the round out of 15 members, I am one among 8.

Just be confident in your core subjects specially persons having high percentage in graduation. The interviewer fully satisfied with my answers. Don't mug up and explain what you know.

4. HR INTERVIEW:

HR: Good afternoon. How was the day?

HR: Ok then read the instructions and sign the paper.
ME: Read the instructions and signed.

HR: Good luck have a nice day.
ME: Thank you sir with a shake hand.

HR round took around 15 minutes and mind that HR round is also an elimination round.

On 21st of December the result was out. Total 204 members selected out of 500 members who cleared the written test.

I'm so happy and I am one of the person got selected in CTS.

As I rejected in TCS, got selected in CTS.
