I applied on company website on 21st October & got a call to attend the interview on 22nd November to attend the interview on 28th November. I made up my mind somehow I must clear the written test. I decided this is the last company and that I should crack the interview. I practised quants from R. S. Aggarwal. I read some candidates interview experience and made a strategy that I must clear the written test.
I practised logical reasoning from IndiaBix. Finally I practised iGATE questions from m4maths. Designation: Software Engineer. Reporting time was 8 AM. I reached there at 8:45 AM. There was a long queue for half the road. While entering they gave interview slot no. Then took to the basement of the company for checking the APP ID. Then we were sent for taking up the test. OMR sheet was given. I wrote my test sitting in the first floor of canteen. There were around 160 -170 candidates. I cleared the written test. From 160 batch 24 were selected.
Around 100 candidates were selected for TI.
These are the questions asked in TI:

After TI some of the candidates were rejected, for some candidates HR round was first conducted, some candidates were rejected after TI & HR. So finally around 60-80 candidates were taken for document verification and I was one among them. They took the self-attested photocopies of marks cards from 10th to graduation, photocopy of ID proof. They told that Campus Support will contact you for further communication. I got a call on Dec 8th, that you are selected and joining date is 28th Dec.
