2008 january HCL TECHNOLOGIES PAPER solved


The written test was in the morning & to my surprise, it consisted of only two sections Aptitude(35) & Technical(20). The Aptitude part it had all unexpected topics like Data sufficiency, some puzzles, passages & very few question on aptitude but tough. But the technical part was easy with questions covering on all topics like C (programs on pointers), C++, OS, Software Engineering, Computer fundamentals.

There were negative markings, +1 for every correct answer, -1 for incorrect & 0 for unanswered one with 1 hr & 30 mints time. There was also section cut-off. I was pretty confident of my technical paper.

The results for the written exam came after 1 hour & the selected students were asked to come for the GD. Some of the topics that I remember were Cubical egg, why HCL interview should not select u? This round was not a major elimination round. Only very few were rejected. Then we were asked to come for presentation after the lunch. The interview process started around 3pm, we were divided into 2 groups. I belonged to the 2nd group & it had the interview in the next day morning.

The interview was very easy & all the question where only from the resume. I first it had my technical interview & then the HR interview. In Tech interview I it had most of the question from java & J2ME, coz of my project. There were also question from Linux, SDLC, C++ & DFD.

The HR interview was really cool. I was asked simple question like r u willing to relocate? Why HCL interview should not select u? I was also given a couple of problem & ask to solve. Divide a square into five equal parts? At last around 4 in the evening the results where announced & I am happy to get into HCL interview!!!
