PAPER ON 29 February 2008
College: Hitech institute of technology,Aurangabad, Maharashtra
Hi, Mayur is here to share his experience of PSPL campus interview. I waited 3
years in my college just to get into and finally I got it. It's the best thing
you can get from your college.The Campus Selection of Persistent Systems
Limited, pune was scheduled on 29th feb and criteria was
1. 58% aggregate upto V Semester B.E.
2. No Current Backlogs.
this was an open campus for all the eligible( CSE / IT/ ETC ) engineering
students of aurangabad. the number of candidates eligible for PSPL was 636. But,
I wasn't troubled with this.Then, the Day came, 29th feb.nearly 600 candidates
were appeared for aptitude test.
There are two categories for PSPL.
1. CS/IT People
2. Non CS/IT People.(ECT)
They have different procedures of selection and different papers for two
categories of people.As, I am from ECT I'll tell you about my experience plus
I'll also tell you about CS/IT guys.
For ECT. 45 questions, 45 marks, 1 hour duration.
2. APTITUDE - 30(easy), C PROGRAMMING - 15.
3. No sectional cut-off. No negative marking
There was two aptitude tests
1st round was technical aptitude (duration: - 1hr)
It basically contain 40 questions
15 general aptitudes like logical deduction from RS aggarwal (simple one)
35 technical questions from C, C++, DBMS ,
Overall it was a simple round and cutoff was I think 50-55%.
In this, candidates were given with the 3 programs of DS and it was compulsory
to solve atleast 2 programs for cracking apti.the programs were based on the
linked list , arrays etc.The HR's were giving more preperance to the logic than
The paper was quite good, c questions were tricky.mostly they asked questions
based on output and error finding . Aptitude was simple but some questions were
confusing. They gave PRE-PLACEMENT TALK after exam, just two of them handled us.
Rest of the team was busy in checking papers. In PPT they shared lots of
information regarding company's market value, their international partners,
company locations, orgin of persistance, and salary offered to the freshers. The
PPT lasted for 1hour.
Then, CSE / IT Candidates were told to move to class room for second test in
just 5 minutes. there was a technical programming paper ready for them.and
students of ECT waited till then.
after 2nd test within 30 min the short listed
candidates list was out.
58 out of 600 candidates had made it !!
for ECT CANDIDATES
3rd round was TECH-1( verbal duration 45min to 1hr 15min) .
In this round they asked technical question from c, microprocessor and basic
electronics concepts ,theorems besides two or three puzzles. they mostly asked
simple programs in c and microprocessor
It was quite difficult round. One thing I would like to say that they were not
looking for definitions but they wanted deep knowledge of concepts and generally
asked How this can be implemented in real life. so be prepare with ur technical.
Note:- In the beginning they said that there will be two technical rounds. Then
depending upon the candidate 1st tech . they take 2nd tech round
we are the only 2 students who were directly send from tech-1 to hr round
for CSE/IT CANDIDATES
3rd round was TECH-1( verbal duration 45min to 1hr 15min)
In this round they will ask technical question from c, c++, dbms , operating
It was quite difficult round. One thing I would to say that that were not
looking for definitions but they want depth knowledge of concepts and generally
How this can be implemented in real life so be prepare with ur technical.
Note:- In the beginning they will said that there will be two technical rounds.
Then depending upon the candidate 1st tech . they take 2nd tech round .
They were some cutoff in tech-1.
4th round was HR ROUND( duration 45 min to 1hrs)common for all candidates.
it was completely based on ur resume. I will suggest u to be honest to hr
officer as they ask next questions from what u have said in the last questions .
pls donít take it lightly . it was the main elimination round many students were
rejected in hr round.
Note:- there were giving full time to each student in every round whether they
have to reject or select the student .
1) They are looking for technical guys. They are not looking ur communication
skills so try to explain the logics in what ever language u r comfortable. SO
donít worry abt the communication skills .
2) Be honest in ur resume write only those subjects in resume on which u have
full command because ur technical starts from ur favorite subjects so donít try
to impress with ur resume because both technical and hr round goes around
3) Try to be honest in hr round because there is a cross questioning after ur
4) Company simply looks for concepts not for definition so try to have depth
knowledge in each subjects mentioned above.
