min). Sectional Cutoff - Reasoning 60% (18/30), Vocabulary 50% (20/40). For a

I attended the HR. interviewer was around the age of 50. For HR I prepared
common questions like tell me about yourself, Hobbies, Activities in college,
Leadership Skills etc...
I was expecting these questions but it was like a short pitch bouncer bowled
at 160 kmph case for me. Only question I was asked is "don't tell me anything.
Just tell about your project. don't tell anything other than this." In-spite-of
this I managed well. So I advise you all to prepare well for your project also.
My interview was completed at 4 pm in the evening.
At about 9 pm the results were announced. To my greatest surprise, I was
shocked for not being selected. My name wasn't there in the list. :(
Out of 64, 37 students were selected at last. I don't know the criteria for
the selection. "LUCK" should also favor for our success.
