Hi Guys, My name is Anjali, I have attended the igate interview on 14th November 2014 at Kolkata. It was a pool of 12 colleges in which nearly 500+ student attended the exam of igate, out of which 85 could clear the aptitude and 56 finally got selected after the interview. My department is ECE and did lot of practice in programming language c only.

The aptitude paper was very easy. It consisted of 50 questions which was to be solved in 60 mins. I think the cutoff was around 43-45. I somehow cleared the aptitude.

The interview was in two parts. 1. Technical Round 2.HR Round.

Technical Round:

I went inside the room wished good afternoon and shaked hand.

TR: Tell me about yourself.

Me: Introduced.This is most challenging question, everybody need to prepared for it.This is default question from any TR.

TR: You are an EC engineer what will you do at Igate ?

TR: Why should I hire you ?

Me: TR, My basic concepts of Academics are clear and if given a chance the I will be one of the dedicated employee and most disciplined of the company.

TR: You heard about 4G.
Me: TR 4G has not yet evolved completely its 4G LTE Long Term evolution.

TR: Know you brief about that.
Me: TR, I don't know much about that.

TR: OK you heard about 1G, 2G, 3G what are that ?

TR: Whats this uplink and downlink  frequency?
Me: Explained.

TR: How ?
Me: Explained.

TR: Then GSM is so popular in India ?
Me: TR, I don't know but I think may be GSM is cheaper than CDMA. I also added but TR now days WCDMA is very popular with 3G connections.

TR: Why GSM so popular in European countries and CDMA in North American countries ?
Me: Don't know TR.

TR looked in to my CV.

TR: SO, you know both C and Java ? ( Giving a deadly smile)
