Caritor Pattern, GD and Interview Experience

I attended the off-campus of Caritor, held at NIE,

Mysore in the last week of august. Test was open for

all students of CS, EC, Mech, EE, IS and

Instrumentation. Cut-off was 65% in all semester, all

subjects must've been cleared in first attempt.

Question paper pattern:

Total time was 60min. Two different question papers

will be given and one white paper to work out the

answers.

The answering sheet is of multiple choice type where

we've to put a "X" mark on correct choice.College ID

was

a must and those who forgot bring theirs were

mercilessly sent out, inspite of having other proof

like marks card

along with drivers license etc.,

NO -ve marks. Paper-2 was given about 15 min. after we

started answering paper-1. We can switch between

papers.

Paper-1:

Quantitative aptitude: 30 questions.All simple stuff

direct from R. S. Aggarwal

Questions were on ratio and proportions, family

relationship, bankers discount, areas and

volumes,pipes and cisterns, complete the number

series.

Paper-2:

Logical reasoning: 15 questions. Few questions on data

sufficiency, ref. the verbal and non-verbal reasoning

by

R. S. Aggarwal. and remaining on assertion and

reasoning type.

I got some 20 correct in paper-1 and some 5-7 correct

in paper-2. I was called for the GD that afternoon

itself.

Some 30 odd were shortlisted for GD. The topic of GD

was hardwork and sincerity.A group was 8-9 people was

made

and were allowed to talk while others had to wait in

other room.I said hardwork and sincerity go

hand-in-hand and both are important, while some

argued that hardwork alone or sincerity alone is

sufficient. In GD the most

silent people were selected!!!!!!!!. I was then

shortlisted for interview the next day in Bangalore in

Caritor office.

the panel had the HR lady and a techie guy.

The guy asked me why I wanted to shift to IT while I

am a Mech., grad.

>> I said growth potential, money, air-conditioned

office........

The guy then asked questions regarding microprocessor

and other electronics stuff.

>> I said I am a mech., guy I don't know Microproc.

You can ask C prog., or any question based on mech.

The guy kept on asking stuff from electronics and

other hardcore comp sc. stuff.

>> I gave up. I answered all questions with a big "I

DON'T KNOW". Walked out.

By looking at their faces and their attitude I could

make out that they didn't want to hire guys from

non-IT branch. The interview and all was just an

eye-wash.So, non-IT guys consider this seriously

before attending Caritor test.Finally about 10 people

from EE and CS branch were selected.

"If you are to be remembered even after your death;

write something worth reading or do something worth

writing".
