Job Interview, Question Paper

Hi Guys, This Is Sampath From Chennai. I Attended The Cognizant Interview That Held In Chennai. Morning 8 A.M. Was The Interview.

When I Reached The Location, There Were Nearly 500 People Who Came Before Me. We, Each Individual Were Identified Only With Our Cognizant Id.

There Were Totally 4 Rounds.

  • Group Discussion-GD

  • Aptitude

  • Technical HR

  • HR

In GD There Were 15 Members Per Batch. Its The Screening Test. Out Of The 15 Only 4 Were Selected.

I Was One Of The Guy In Those 4. Next We Were Waiting For Our Aptitude Round.

As I Was Strong In Aptitude I Don't Had Much Fear. The Aptitude Consists Of Two Sections.

  • Analytical (30 Ques)

  • Verbal (25 Ques)

In Analytical Part, Concentrate More On Statement Conclusion, Statement Interfere, Puzzle (Seating Arrangements) And Paragraph Conclusion

In Verbal Section Concentrate More On Find Correct Sentence, Rearrange The Sentence, Encoding-decoding, Logical Deduction, Problem Figures And Answer.

The Paragraph. (For Both Refer R.S. Agarwal. Its More Than Enough).

Its Mandatory To Get 13/30 In Analytical And 12/25 In Verbal. For Better Time Keeping Attend The Paragraph Questions At Last.

After Finishing Aptitude We Waited For Nearly 1hour To Get Our Results. While Announcing The Results My Cognizant Id Was Also Shot listed For The Next Round.

Then We Were Waiting For Our Technical HR Round. This Is The Round Where I Was Much Scared. We Were Called One By One.

They Called My Cognizant Id I Went In.
