Here no GD was been conducted directly they switched to the Communication Test :-
First they’ll conduct a written test of 10 mins and 15 questions of simple english.
It contains about . . articles, arranging the senteces in right order and finding errors in the sentences.
Then after that they will give you the cell phone and . . you have to make a call to the given no. then enter your TIN(Test Identification No.) provided by them
This is the most important round and the most of the guys had been eliminated from this round only.Be careful and sit at the place where the external noise inference is too less.
1st round – “Read the sentences”
u’ll be given a paper which contain 10-12 sentences in english.
there will be 8-9 sentences to read. (easiest round)
2nd round – “Repeat the sentences”
The server will say some sentences and u have to repeat them.
The sentences will be in different voices, speed, accent (easy one) Every time when you move ahead . . the length of the sentences increasing so be careful and attentive.
3rd round – “Make senetence from Jumble words”
The server will pronounce some jumbled words and u have to make senetence from that U can’t add ur own words/articals/adjectives and all to make the sentences. u have to useonly the senetences pronounced by the server. ( it would be a normal used sentences like – “eat i daily mango” (Most difficult among all)
4th round – “one word answer”
The server will ask question which u have to reply in one word.
Like… what is the color of milk?
What is frozen water called?       (ICE)
Which is faster:cat or worm?       (CAT)
Which is thinner:finger or leg?    (FINGER)
how many weeks r there in a year?   (52)
how many minutes r there in 1 and a half hr?   (90)
What do u wear when u go out in cold:sweater or shirt?   (SWEATER)
How many eggs are there in a dozen?    (12)
If you are going out for lunch with your mother,who are you:daughter or sister? (DAUGHTER)
Which is smaller castle or cottage?   (COTTAGE)
Afternoon comes before or after lunch?   (BEFORE)
trees have more no. of branches or trunks?   (BRANCHES)
how many months are there in two years?   (24)
U see with ur eyes or ears?   (EYES)
the whole process will take 10-12 min. The accent will be of US, UK , Australia . The problem people face is understanding the sentences. The questions are very easy to answer but u have to catch what the server is saying.

The written paper contains 55 Qns to be answered in 1hr.

It contains the Qns on verbal ability,Aptitude,reasoning, Attention details and technical.

The verbal ability includes the following Qns.

I got ___________  in traffic so got late (struck/struckup/hold/……).

Mr Benerjee the officer of ….  was  questioned ___________(for ,with,on,to) his connection regarding the murder.
The proteins present in  ____ apple ,____banana,______Egg are very essential  ………..
We have to fill the blanks with a, an or the ( ans: an,a,an)

A Qn was asked on the meaning of underlined word
Here the word  is Therapeautic   .

Miss X ( some name is given )  given a speech on _____ bank of ____ river kaveri regarding _____________  abilities of the women .  like that the Qn goes here also they have given the options like
1        a, an ,the
2        the,the,a
3        a, the,a
4        the, the, the
ans:4

thre is an essay abt the ATM behavior and usage ,security mechanisms ,connectivity, technology used like that .
1.      how an ATM is connected to net.
2.      what the operation not mensioned in the passage
a. with drawl   b. deposit    c. donations to charities d . amount transaction btnm accounts
3.    which of the following is false.

some time s Atm are un reliable.
They are connected through modems.
……
……
3.      which is not a possible error regarding ATM.
a. mechanical error  b. s/w error   .i/p error ……..( the answer depends on the passage and actual errors given)
4. why ATM s are kept in shops
a. because there is no chance of theft there
b. no space in banks.
c.   there will be more no of people.

……..
Then csome Qns are on venn diagram models
Like
1 . In a party 10 take only tea 15 take tea and 8 take only coffee then what is the number of persons take either coffee or tea.(nos are not exact).
2. In a college there are students who can play either football or cricket  or both.
500 play cricket 220 play  both and  600 play football .what is the total strength of the college.

Like this there are one or two more Qns…  they r also easy and simple

Then now real IBM pattern starts.  It also will be easy but needs a little bit of practice other wise u should have high spontaneous analyzing capacity.

Some 3 Qns are given with instructions like : given three strings check which of them are same ans: A if all are same, B if 1&2 are same, C if 1&3 are same, D if 2&3 are same, E if all are different

Strings are given as
1. a. 66749384879456                   b. 6674934879456       c.  6674934879456
2. a. XIVIIMIVIIIVIXIV         b.XIIVMIIVXIVIIIV   c.XIVIIMIVIIIVIXIV

3. a. 34523897346579                        b.343647654869679   c.346548364874379

Three Qns are given in the following model:
1.If + is replaced by *,* is replaced by -,- is replaced by / ,/is replaced by% nad % is replaced by + then what is the value of the following expression.

25-3+32/5%2

Some options will be given u have to choose correct answer. (all the digits are not same)

Next two of the same model but they are giving 4 expressions like above we have to find which one is correct.

Like: a. 35-2+4/3%42=35
b. 25+4-5%6*7=28
…..
……..

Like this they r giving 2 Qns. This seems to be some what risk just increase the speed of calculations .

The remarkable Qn of IBM is on cubes, in this imagination plays major role.

Given a Qn like this: there r three cubes arranged side by side

Each cube is divided into 64 cubes then top most layer of second cube is removed and top two layers of third cube are removed.

And then  total volume is painted

1.what is the number of cubes painted on 1 face , 2.   two faces, 3. three faces , 4. four faces , 5. no face.

This qn needs more imagination or u have to know the answer well before for this particular qn.

Some Qn s are given on data sufficiency here also analysys plays major role.

There r some 4 or 5  Qns   in this model

Like  a can do a worked for 5 days and b  worked for  7 days how many days they  taek to complete the work ………..like that .

There r 3 more qns on relations ship btn numbers , on the solving of eqns.
Then we can have some Qns on technical
One Qn on c, one Qn on UNIX,  one on RDBMS , on on processors like that total I had only 6 to 8 Qns

Qns  are like this : what is the o/p of printf(“%d”,printf(ram)); ans:ram3
What is the command to kill or stop a process in unix ( kill,stop,terminate ……) .            ans : kill (check it out)

Unix is what kind of OS ( multiuser and multitasking).

Like that some what easy Qns we can get.

In this written test I got 42 out of 54( one Qns is not printed well so they asked us to leave it) I saw it when they are pinning my resume to my applcn form and answer sheet.

The process is very simple ibm peoples are very sopportive . RS agarwal is good to study for written round
i am an electronics and communication students basics off c and C++ is must don get afraid only basics is enough even i don’t know how to write  programs. be confident have faith in god…
