    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Syntel in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    On 02nd august 2014, there were aptitude test. It have 3 sections reasoning, verbal and aptitude. Each section have 30 q and for each section time duration was 20 min. So 90 q in 60 min. I felt that it's all about on time management. Test was not much tough. What you need to do is, manage your timings. If you able to do so then you will surely crack this part without any hurdles.

    On 25th August I got the call letter for further interview process. Interview at Syntel (Pune) on 18th September. There were 3 stages in interview process. All considered as a elimination stage. First one was GD. Group of 10 members was formed and given 2 min exactly for preparing on "India- A soft Nation".

    Disappointed that I was not able to initiate even when I have a point and proper explanation on hand. But I rapt attention of others quickly and made my points with examples in firm voice.So at last they asked individual. Just because we made some good points. 5 out of 10 selected. There was not any fixed criteria of selection. I also heard that in many group all was selected and in many 2 or 3 selected.

    Now turn for technical round, 7 panels running. Luckily I got a very genuine panel. He has down to earth nature and very frank. I grabbed his attention by saying good noon in replied he did firm handshake and gave positive gestures. He asked tell me about yourself. After that he asked my interested subject. I'm from CSE. So I told him that I have only knowledge about C.

    He asked me data link list, draw it's diagram, types of linked list etc. Then asked concept of stack, Fibonacci series etc. Then he gave me a kind of puzzle but it was time consuming. I did my best but not got d exact answer. But he appreciates that you have done good. I told him give me 2 mins I will bring you answer. But he said its ok I got your logic. He asked my area of exposure in Syntel.

    Then asked about final year project, impressed on my project. Latter he asked me some questions based on my project. As I told he was impressed with project, so it took 20 min. Overall interview run for 40 - 45 mins. At Last he told me I have done, anything would you know from me? I asked that what the career paths available in the company are. He replied too genuinely. After 10 mins I had to knew that I cleared. After 45 mins I called for hr round.

    Hr took 20 mins. She asked me tell me about yourself, describe in detail of your family background, how can you differ from other candidates, values of Syntel (speed, synergy. etc. ) , companies recent achievements, if your joining location will be Chennai den?, did you appeared for interview in any mnc, why would you join Syntel. And last she said I've done. You can asked me questions. I asked how the company has been affected by recession, what are the incentive for your top performer. After 20 mins they said you are selected.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Syntel in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    An online test was conducted in June 2014 which had questions on aptiude, reasoning, english. Students from across India appeared for this time based test.
    Later, in September 2014 there were 3 more rounds:

    1) GD - My topic was should president rule be applied to fight terrorism. they selected based on words/vocabulary, facts mentioned and also whether you sticked to your point till end.

    2) Technical Interview- Lasted for 50 minutes(for others it was less, around 20-30 minutes). I had mentioned my actual interest (Data warehousing and Hadoop) and the Interviewer happened to be working in the same domain so it went bit long and quite good. We had healthy discussions over technology, I also got to learn few points from the interviewer.
    IMHO, Please be honest about you interest. It will boost your morale even if you don't get offer.

    3) HR Interview- Lasted for 35 minutes+ . I was asked a brief introduction, are you fine with any location?, What is trending in IT these days?, What is your interest?, Why are your marks so low?. There was a report card kind of thing, and till then end scores were entered after each round. Based on that cumulative score, you get shortlisted finally.

    4) Documentation round- This was an informal round I guess were we(selected ones) were explained about the Background verification process, etc.
