First we went college at 6 am itself..then waited in exam hall..
At 9 am a mam came with applications and papers..
First They gave the Applications..
we are asked to have our files with us.
She gave the applications and gave instructions 1 by 1 slowly and clearly..
we filled perfectly from our marksheets..
then at 9.26 she gave logical question paper and answer sheet..
we wrote our name,col name,and signed in answer sheet..
then we had our photo with us..
while we were writing she came and stapled our application and answer sheet along with photo in the application..
we have to encircle the option and write it in the next column..as 2 , 3 etc..
answer sheet had options for both logical and verbal..we started exactly at 9.26 AM...
Logical was easy..
30 ques 40 min..
one was find the numbers given their difference..its a gift..
next puzzle is seating arrangement.that too quite easy..
then Syllogisms was easier..surely can get 4/5..
then data interpretation..direct tabular data..easy to calculate.
then data sufficiency.3 were easy..
and finally picture series completion.the easiest of all..can get 4/5..
Mam just reminded us that last 3 minutes left..
I finished before 2 min remaining and checked whether i marked correctly.that over mam gave verbal question Paper..
40 questions 35 mins.
we started exactly at 10.06 am..
8 questions in select the error free best sentence..
i took 10 min to complete it..it was tough for me.
8 in select suitable replacement sentence..it was quite better..
then 8 in fillers..
select the suitable option that makes the sentence complete and without grammatical error..
Then 6 in critical reasoning..it also took some time,but its easy..
finally i had 6 mins left for Comprehension passage..
i finished direct inference from passage (ie see the question->find the statement in passage and answer the question)..
then 4 min left for critical reasoning type Comprehension..(we have to read the whole passage to understand the theme of the passage and then only we can answer the questions)..
i skimmed the passage as it was familiar to me.(it was about astrology.prediction based on planetory position(i had some knowledge in astrology)
so i was able to complete while 2 mins remaining..and checked my answers in the last 2 mins.
Thats it..our tests are over exactly at 10.41 am..mam left us at 10.50 after collecting all the papers..
We all hoped for god..
I felt that logical was very easy and verbal was manageable..of course i managed..
short list Results were announced at 1.45..only few of our classmates were shortlisted..in felt for them..
we were asked immediately to move out of the seminar hall and one sir took all of us for HR interview directly..
we were asked to fill a scholastic sheet..

they first asked our resume copy and scholastic sheet..they pinned it with our application with answer sheet...
I waited for 30 min and finally my time came..
When my name was called, i went and asked "may i come in Sir"..
He was an old man with 60+ age..
He asked "u Mr.Veera Raagavan"..
i said "yes sir.good afternoon sir"..
he said"Take ur seat".i said thank u and sat..
i had my file in hand..

Then he asked abt my dad and his business..

i said "I saw some websites but didnt hear abt conferences sir "...
he said "its a costly conference"..
then "is there any link between RFID and GPS??"..
i answered " Yes sir,both are similar technology and .both are used for same purpose..
but the difference is ..GPS can be tracked using satellite..But RFID cant do like that..we need readers to be mounted in the path,to identify and track the objects having the tags"..
"How u prepared for this paper..is it a single person preparation"..
