I am Hari.I am a mechanical graduate, 2006 fresher. I have attended ‘Robert Bosch’ written test on 14 th November .I have applied only thru the link given in our website. Only 60 to 70 people (mechanical) were allowed to write the test who came with call letters. Only one mechanical paper of Bosch is available in our site. So I am sending this paper. This pattern is for mechanical students.
