The first round is the written test. This is an online test. Capgemini’s written test is conducted by Cocubes. The student must be alert while answer the test and should keep the tab on time as there is a limited time given to solve the test.
There is a sectional cut-off for each section. If the student is not aware of the correct answer, he/she should not attempt those as a wrong answer would fetch negative marking. It has been observed that in the last few years there are about 25 questions asked in each section.
The written test is divided in three sections:
• Verbal Ability
• Reasoning Ability
• Quantitative AbilityVerbal Ability
In this section the student can expect questions to correct the sentences, idioms, synonyms and antonym. There will be questions on grammatical error. The students are expected to correct the sentences.
A passage would be given and the students are expected to answer questions based on the passage. While reading the passage the student must be very attentive.
In this section the student can expect questions on syllogism, statement and assumption. The student can also expect questions on blood relation, age problems, data interpretation and a few questions based on series.

In this round the interviewer expects the students to give valid and relevant points. The student should be good in their communication skills. If he/she is giving out any information about any recent study or facts, the student must be very sure about the information given.
It has been observed that in many companies the written test and the group discussion round acts as an elimination round.

The HR would also ask the students to answer a few puzzles. The interviewer may also ask the candidate his/her family background, academic qualification and also about extracurricular activities done by them.
The HR may ask the student questions such as:
- Aim in life?
