ARICENT PAPER ON 6 & 7th SEPTEMBER 2010 @ BMS College Of Engineering, BANGALORE (Criteria: current 70 %)

HI Friends, this is Swapnil Kumar (MCA , BMSIT). I have attended Aricent paper on 6th and 7th september at BMSCE,Bangalore...it was a pleasant experience...

They begin with a nice AV... where some of the employees have shared their experience. Please note down few points which you like about them, they gonna ask you in interview that what you would like to do in ARICENT. 

Then there was a test of 1 hr 45 min (conducted by Merit Trac):
1. Analytical Ability (30 Ques/20 min):it was easy(no work time n maths)
2. Reasoning (20 Ques/15 min):all from r.s.agarwal(practice well)
3. Data Structure (20 Ques/30 min):only basics,searching,sorting,tree,LL
4. C or C++ or Java (30 Ques/40 min):i opted for C (all frm C by ykr)

They shorlisted 96 out of 500 candidates. In aricent there is no elimination after this so all were going to give PI.

firstly we filled two three forms about choice of work, family members,  personal details and so on. Then there was a CI(critical incidence) form where they gave 7 Ques and we need to write our experience like...

1. Describe a incidence where u have worked in group.
2. Tell about any event where u didn't have prior knowledge about it and then u learned and solved it.
3. Any incidence where your original idea was forced to be rejected or  changed.
4. Any recent event where people didnt have any prior knowledge and you help them to understand it.

It was easy, but please remember that they gonna ask you about this in PI so dont write any bullshit! or false things here.. they can catch you in a second. so be TRUE, be yourself...

Then there was a GI(group interview) of about 30 min;
1. They divide the whole group(approx 12 people) in two parts.
2. They give a document for both the parts of people to read.
3. One part has things in favour of topic and another have against it.
4. They give about 10 min to read and then you need discuss about them.

-->Stick to the material provided to you, dont put you own knowledge in it.
-->Be with your group, always support idea of your part of people.
-->All these marks will be counted finally, so give your best.
-->Dont quarrel, Dont Argue and have patience to listen other.

Lastly, there was PI(personel interview) on 7th of september:
we were called at 10am but as i was the 93rd person to be interviewed
my turn came in evening 5.30 pm...
