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
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.
