Hi Chetanaites

I am Poulami Roy from Computer sc., Academy of Technology, Aedconagar (2008 batch). I attended Satyam campus recruitment process on 6th October. It was a pooled campus around 100 appeared and 32 were selected for interview and hr round. Finally 6 got selected.

1. Aptitude Test:
15 ques in 30 mins. 1 mark for each right and 0.25 -ve for wrong answer.
Aptitude test was little bit tough since there is a -ve marking so be careful to attempt the ques. Just do 7-8 ques correctly n u will b in. So be very careful in aptitude test, no guess. I think the cut-off was only 4.

14.sorry I forget the rest..

2. Tech+Hr.
There were 2 panels for interview. One of them for Hr interview and another for technical.

PPT started at 11 am.. then aptitude test started at 12.30 pm. the result announced at 2 pm. And interview started at 3.30pm. They gave a form to fill up, which is very important for interview. They may ask ques from that in interview. There is also a essay part in interview as there was no gd. My topic was "reservation in private sector".

In interview, the panel in which I entered is concentrating mainly on technical,

Firstly he asked "tell me about ur family"
   1. Matrix multiplication in any language.
   2. Armstrong no.
   3. What is deadlock?
   4. About my project. My roll in that project.
   5. what is referential integrity?
   6. dcl, dml, ddl language and example.
   7. In a class there are 10 student and have 3 subjects. Just take three marks and print their marks.
   8. What is view?
   9. Difference between inner join and outer join,
  10. Uses of alter.
  11. Rest I forgot.

It took 1 hour. My fav. Subject is data structure but he didn't ask a single ques from that. be careful of it. Look at the HRs eyes and with smile face just speak.
In HR, It was just 4-5 min. And just asked simple ques. It is necessary to clear both technical and HR.  
I would like to thank the SATYAM team and our placement members who conducted campus in my college. They r very friendly.. I would like to say that SATYAM is the best platform for a fresher..
