I attended Cambridge Solutions exam. Test is quite simple. I dont remember the exact questions. But I can give a model of questions. They were 60 questions in total to be answered in 1.30 hrs. Cut off was 35. There is no negative marks. They?l ask you to answer all questions.

The first 20 was quatitative aptitude. Questions include:
1.ratio & proportion
2.Simple & Compound interest
3.Profit & Loss
4.Time & distance probs
5.figure given & number missing inside figure(lik satyam)
6.to find hypotenuse length (eg. boy flying kite.the thread is 13 metres & the kite is 10 metres right of him .find the approximate distance of kite from the ground??)
7.then so many circle & cone problems (4-5 probs were ther, study those formulas correctly.Its given in agarwals quantitative aptitude..)

Next section was Verbal. Questions include finding out meanings of words, then assertion reaction (given in verbal & non verbalbook of agarwal), fill in the blanks (2 blanks were ther in each line). etc

Next section was Logical.. Ques like (eg:- there were 2 grps. A,B,C,D,E belong to one grp.P,Q,R,S belong to another grp.. Out of these 9 ppl, 5 hav to attend a meeting.. If A goes P cannot go, If B goes C cannot go with him, A & C always go together, lik this 4-5 conditions given. And finally 5 questions based on this conditions.. Its easy.. GO tru this type os questions in agarwal). Then Logical Deductions were there (Go tru Logic Chapter in Agarwal, ques lik All books are pen, Some pen are pencil. Then 4 statements given, U hav to choose which one wil follow.. First study the formulas given in that chapter,, Then try to do the prob with that formula, if the answer is not according to the formulas basis, then draw a venn diagram & then analyse, then u?l get the corerct answer.

Then comes General Awareness in Computers.. in that u?l hav 10 questions.. Its very easy.

Some questions are:
1)full form of SDLC(Software Dvmt Life Cycle)
2)full form of HTML(Hyper text Markup Language)
3)Full form of SQL(Structured Query Language.)
4)latest technology used by lenova for making their computers( Facial Recognition for password)
5)how many bytes make one Gigabyte (somethin lik that.. go tru those conversions)
6)Which one is RDBMS?? (Sybase, SQL Server 2000, Access, one more option was there, i dont remember it. I think answer is Sql Server 2000)

Almost 1800 ppl attended the test. But only 75 cleared the test.

Next round was GD. Most of the GD topics were general topics relating to Internet & it?s effect etc. My GD topic was ?Internet makes new relationships but destroys family relationships?. From GD only 19 selected for final interview.

The interview was mainly HR. For some they asked technical questions. But simple ones, like basics of OS, SQL, DBMS, etc.. No tough questions. To some they asked to write SQL queries based on certain conditions (queries using desc,count etc). They are just looking for ur confidence level in interview. Tats all abt the test pattern of Cambridge Solutions.
