Accenture Placement Paper & Interview

Company: Accenture services

We had the written exam on 19th aug 2007, it was an offcampus recruitment, around 8000+ students appeared for the test…
out of which 1800 were shortlisted for further rounds…

The written consists of three section :-
1) English
2)Aptitude
3)Analytical

In English section there were questios like, fill in the correct preposition
Ex:- He kept quiet as he was afraid of being laughed_________ a.on b.at c. upon. d. into
The correct option is b.
Then there wer questions like fill in the correct articles…
Ex:-I kept ________glass of juice on the table a.)the b)a c) an d) no article required

other questions wer to find the synonym of the given word here also 4 options wer given (very easy) then there were 2 passages.. first one is always easy u can find the ans directly in the passage without reading it fully.. the second passage is based on understanding answers and not direct but its also easy….

In Aptitude section there are 5 questions on venn diagram, some on set theory, ages, blood relation, data sufficiency, ranking, ques on probability, and if * means 0 and \$ means 1 then what’s the value for 256*7+8 there wer 5 such questions easy but time taking… just go through R.S agarwal then this section will be a child play 4 u…

In Analytical there wer question like some conditions were given and based on that 4-5 questions were there…
then if * represents + ,+ means -, – means/, then wats the value of the following expression.. there were 4-5 such questions

These questions are time taking I solved 2 of them in rest 3 I made wild guess…

Its very easy to crack the test just the important thing is proper time management as u have to do 55 ques in 60 mins…first solve those ques which u can do fast and perfectly and then attempt rest. doing this u will find dat u’ve attempted 33-35 question in just half of time..(i did the same)

Chapters to be done-blood relation, data sufficiency, ratio prop., percentage, ranking, sitting arrangement, boats and streams, trains, time and distance, time and work, venn diagram from R.Sagarwal.. try analytical reasonin based question 4m any MBA book…..remember friends written is “verrrryyyyy easyy…”

Then there is a GD round they asked us to decide the topic but since they wernt satisfied with the topics we gave… they gave us “Is the economic or financial position effecting the judicial decision Today?”

Then he gave us 1 min to think over it… he told us he was looking for communication skill, thought process, how u deal with ur group.

U always get bonus point for starting the discussion…dont panic if u dont start u just hav to be confident and fluent in English…even if u dont know topic too well dont remain dumb speak wrong but confidently and fluently… these people are very particular abt fluency in English

After that there was HR round..they ask abt company and general ques like why Accenture??? so go prepared
we were not given any ppt so better gather the info abt Accenture urself from sites and go prepared. I was asked top 3 IT companies.
