The paper was a mix of toughness, time constraint and easy questions. To summarize, it contained two main sections: 1.The Aptitude section (consisted of 4 subsections) 2.The Technical section (consisted of 4 subsections) People told me that there is sectional cut off of 60% in each of the two sections.
Now ellaborating the paper, first it is a long brain and computer adaptation exercise, of nearly four hours.
Section: 18Qs in Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation questions in
30 mins. This is a easy section u can easily do it, there is enough
amount of time.
IInd Section: 16Qs in Quantitative Ability in 25 minutes, again a simple section
IIIrd Section: 25 Qs. in 20 minutes it is about pattern matching.
Section: 60 Qs. in 6 minutes, there is negative marking, here u get a
question which has some text and u have to select the same text among
the 4 options. Speed is tested here in this fourth section, but a
person can attempt about 30 to 40 questions depending on his/her speed.
All the above sections are explained with good examples before u start
the test so be cool and patient and read these options with ease and u
can crack this section.
This section is the Amdocs pseudo language section, be cool the name is
the only scary part in this section nothing else, remaining is easy
with a lot of time, u get 60 minutes in this section for 25 questions,
but before u start off this section it is advisable to read the booklet
that is given along with this section before starting this section, i
had forgotten to do this but i believe still managed to get all
questions right, it is basically a section of algorithm.
Section:This section tests u on SQL queries, some are very simple some
are tough, u get 20 minutes in this section, ample time to solve all
IIIrd Section:This is a
section on UNIX language, basically on different types of commands and
some theoretical concepts, it also has 20 minutes.
Section: This section is a choice betwee any one of the languages which
is your favourite among the four given languages C/C++/Java/Cobol. This
is also a section of 20 minutes.
NOTE: All the technical subsections have a lot of time for them to be solved easily within the time limit, provided u know them. And
in case there is only sectional cut offs then it is advisable to try to
score the fullest or maximum in the first section(Amdocs pseudo
Important: Mind u, u can take time off between sub
sections of the main sections also so relax in between as well to keep
ur efficiency. The test is very long, it will take near to 4 hours to
complete the full test, only advice is not to rush through the sections
quicly as only once u click on the button next will the section start,
so take some time off between sections get refreshed and then
concentrate with full vigour in the sections. All the best…..Amit Ganguli
