Company: PATNI Computer Systems
Package: 3.25 (LPA)
College: Dr BC Roy Engineering College, Durgapur, Burdwan, 2011
Branch: Information Technology

Pattern of Written Test

Quantitative : 20 Minutes 20 Questions
Reasoning / Analytical : 20 Minutes 20 Questions
Verbal English : 20 Minutes 20 Questions

Written test was conducted by MeritTrac. 3 separate sets of questions were given one after another.

First one was the Verbal English Section - It was very easy. One simple passage, 5 questions and 15 fill in the blanks with noun, adjective, adverb etc.
Next one was Analytical Reasoning - This one was simple also. Missing Figure, Blood relation, Logic, Data Sufficiency etc.
Last one was Quantitative Aptitude - A little bit lengthy. Average, Set, Pipes, Time and Distance, Ratio, Interest etc.
I think there was a sectional cut-off (Not Sure) but no negative marks. I attempted 55 questions (I thought Hit ratio might work, so left 5 quantitative though I still had the time).
I was confident. I got 52 (Shown to me at the time of Interview).
Next round was a Business Mail Writing round. All selected candidates from written test were given a situation. You have to write within a single page in 10 minutes.
My question was - "If everything go wrong, I would ......"
It was just a formality test but please remember what you write.
