VIRTUSA PAPER ON 21st JUNE
hi friends, on 21st june i attended virtusa campus drive which was a little bit hectic procedure.
there will be 3 rounds in total which comprises of written test,technical interview and hr interview.there may be a gd also if many members got through the written test.
in written test there will be 5 sections
 aptitude
 verbal
 mental ability
 technical
 attentive ability
the aptitude and verbal rounds will be easy and mental ability and technical will consume more time.
in attentive ability there will be a big passage.we have to read that passage for 10 min and return back the passage after that a paper consisting of 10 questions will be given. we have to answer that questions which we read from the passage.
for aptitiude its better to prepare rs agarwal and in the technica sections there will be small codes,we have to pick the correct output.the questions will be only from c and ds.
next comes the technical round which was a bit difficult round.
in this round the interviewer first asked about me and my favourate subjects.then he will ask to write a code of his wish like pascal traingle,reverse a string, to print stars in the given order,and programs on linked lists,trees,searching techniques.
after that he will ask questions on operating systems like what is os?,what is paging,fragmentation,scheduling algorithms etc. after completion of technical round its almost the end of the process that is hr interview which was a very easy one.
only thing required is minimum speaking skills,confidence and eye contact. the person who interviews will be very very free and he will be freindly with u.he may also ask puzzles and dont fear even if u dont answer he will just test ur attempt.
Hi friends,
I am raghava from P.B.Siddhartha college. got thru VIRTUSA coducted at VR.Siddhartha College Vijayawada.
It is very cool yaar....i am very happy, beacuse i got the key for campus selections i.e CONFIDENCE with PATIENCE.
I attended for 4 companies previously and didn't qualify for Written test. But i am still confident and tried and attempted for all, where as my frnds who worried and didn't do the rest of the companies well. so please be confident.
I Round : Written Test ( conducted by METRIC Track)
It is having 5 phases of paper's just like Psychometric test. it is having very simple questions where we should use our commonsense. dont worry abt the questions they are very easy .
 Ability  synonyms,antonyms, articles, wrong sentence's, paragraph's.
 Ability  aptitude questions from r.s.agarwal (regular)
 Mental Ability  (very very very easy don't get confused) finding out the similar pronunciation words and decimal number's.)
 Ability  questions from C and UNIX (they eat away time ... plz attempt the small questions first .. their main aim is to waste your time .... so they give small questions at last be careful)
 Reading Ability  they give a 3 pages document to read and understand and they take back the papers and give us a question paper of about 10 questions (read only once and very carefully.. because 3 papers in 10 min is tough.... remember the numbers and main key words and main theme of the document )
II Round : Group Discussion (conducted by the HR Team)
The topics given are very very casual. they just want to test whether every one is having their own idea (it might be a single idea ) and are we able to talk when we are given a chance . please dont copy the idea's .if u are also on the same idea just explain with current affair;s example . . our batch consists of 8 members .we were given a topic called "BRAIN DRAIN" only 2 minutes for preparing and just 10 minutes for the discussion of the topic . 600 seconds for 8 members's .... each member should take only 75 seconds ( 600seconds /8members ) ... so i planned to interrupt into the discussion for 5 times and to talk for 15 seconds each time .
III Round :Technical Interview(conducted by the HR Team)
This is a bit tough round . The interviewer asked about my Academic background and my interest on subjects . He asked me the subjects i have covered in MCA course schedule and tried to cover all the subjects with simple questions and testing our capability in answering the questions ...asked some live examples for the answers. the session lasted for about 45 minutes. be confident on the subjects you are interested.
IV Round : HR Interview (conducted by the HR Team)
This is the Easiest Round we have to face. But be careful. Here the Key's to Success are CONFIDENT and COMMUNICATION SKILLS. Be confident of wat u say. the questions are regular like.....
 tell me abt ur self
 why sould we appoint u
 y virtusa
 ur plans afetr 5 years
 interests
 hobbies and a small problem on reasoning .......
Try hard and do well for Selections. if u are Rejected dont get Disappointed. try the other company.

CODE is encoded as DGBF
READ is encoded as JHNV
PROGRAMMING
(Note: You may use language of programming to write
the following codes)
1) Write a program to print all the four digit numbers
whose squares must have all the even digits.
2) Write a program to print the pyramid up to the
passed integer value.
1
2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9 10
11 12 13 …
If we pass the value 13 it should print like
the above (no need to print the 3 dots)
3) In a certain DATABASE we had to store the TIMESTAMP

}
> Start from a random number, generate a sequence
such that if number is odd multiply it 3 and add 1. If
number is even, divide the number by 2. This Sequence
will always cyclic with 4, 2, 1. In this sequesce,
find the maximum power of 2 generaged in the sequence
and print only the power, not the sequence.
> Start with a random 2 digit number, The series is
generated by multiplying the number by 2 and placing
the last 2 digits as the next number. Series continues
until one of the element repeats.
> write a function maxsubstring(str,alpha,theta) str
is the source string and have to return maximum sub
string which starts with alpha and ends with theta.
a) They had given one function ,we have to find it
what it does and also problem in the fn. and how to
overcome it.
double what( double z, int y)
{
double answer;
while( y > 0 )
{
if( y%2 == 1)
answer = answer * z;
y=y/2;
z=z*z;
}
return answer;
}
b) They had given one Pseudocode.We have to find bug
in the pseudocode.
I don't remeber the pseudocode fully.But the
function of pseudocode is
"To make a Robot to fetch a tumbler of water"
c) write a program to print all Armstrong numbers,
(abc=a^3+b^3+c^3)
(for eg. 153=1^3+5^3+3^3)
d) write a function witj the following conditions,
1)It should have one integer parameter.
2)If the value passed is ve, return 1.
3)If the value passed is a perfect square, return
root of that number.
4)If the value passed is a not a perfect square,
return that number itself.
Analytical Section:
Analytical Section consists of Vocab. ( pick the odd
one out ) and
also
some codings like ( ALPHA z coded as BETAH , DELTA z
coded as GAMMA,
then how z
ETA coded ? .. this one .. i have framed it :) ) .
This part z a bit
difficult one.
So, my advice z don't think much about these.
Along with above two categories, there shall be
PUZZLES in this
section.In the
recent paper i attended,i got the following
questions.
1.Volume of a LARGE SPHERE z ( pi * # ) .Area of it z
( pi * & ) where
'#,&' r four digit
integers.What z the value of the radius ? ( Along
with answer , v
have to write
approach).
answer: may be 22
2.In howmany ways can a rectangle can be cut into 4
equal parts.
3.Given 1,2,3,25,50,75 and 100 .. Using each number
"one and only
once" and using
arithmetic operators, write 383 in terms of the
above given numbers.
answer: 383 = ( 100 + 2 ) * 3 + 75 + ( (50 * 1)/2 )
4.A tougher question of above. given 1,2,25,50,75,100
.. write 383 in
terms of the given
numbers.
5.Given following sequence,find the how the sequence
is generated.
2 > 1,4,9,6,5,6,9,4,1,0
3 > 1,8,7,4,5,6,3,2,9,0
4 > 1,6,1,6,5,6,1,6,1,0
answer : the sequences r nothing but the UNIT digits
of
square(x),cube(x),power4(x) where
x = [ 1 ... 10 ]
6.Knights always tell TRUTH.Knaves always tell LIE.U
r a foreigner to
that place and
U have met a person and he replies "I am a knave " .
What can u infer
from his
statement.
answer : nothing can be infered from his statement.
7. using 4 fours and arithmetic operations
write from 1 to 10
3 = ( 4 + 4 + 4 ) / 4
4 = ( 4  4 ) * 4 + 4
5 = ( 4 * 4 + 4 ) / 4
6 = 4 + ( 4 + 4 )/4 // 4 + 2
7 = ( 4 + 4 )  ( 4 / 4 )
8 = ( 4 + 4 ) * ( 4 / 4 )
9 = ( 4 + 4 ) + ( 4 / 4 )
10 = ( 44  4 ) / 4
I forget the two more questions.
Analytical Writing :
This section has two questions only.
1.General topic. ( Don't forget that v have to just
write one page
only .. not an essay)
( So,write the points directly )
For us they gave topics
Is it necessary for to HOST AFROASIAN GAMES ?? Why
can't it spend
that money
for the welfare of poor ?
OR
Can India have better results if the current for of
govt. is changed
to
PRESEDENTIAL FORM OF GOVT. ( like USA ) .
2.He gives a highly impossible possible and asks to
give a solution.(
To check ur
innovative ideas :) )
For us,
Suppose u have suddenly changed to an ANT.U know
human's
abilities,but u have
forgot their language.How can u make urself to
convey ur BELOVED that
u have
been changed to an ANT.
Programming :
This section consists of 4 questions.Out of 4, for 3
questions v have
to write
code.The last question shall be .. they shall give
some code and v
have to write whether
the code is correct one r not .. if not correct ,
where the
modifications show be done.
and also v have to write what that CODE IS DOING.

COMPANY NAME : VIRTUSA  DATE OF TEST : 9 June 2004
Pattern: (No multiple choice Qns)

4 Sections.
1.Analytical Reasoning (12 qns.)
================================
(we have to write reasons for the answer.)
( I don't remember exactly what they had given.I am
putting it in my own words)
1) x1 peach + y1 plum = z1 apple
x2 peach + y2 plum = z2 apple
(x1,y1 .... z2 are integer values)
How many peaches make one apple?
2) 100,100,102,106,112,120,____
3) which is greater ?
Product of all Bradman's first class scores or Sum
of all test scores of Sachin.
4) U r provided with 500ml and 300ml jar(it has no
markings).
a) u have to measure exactly 100ml.
b) u have to measure exactly 200ml.
5) Using four 4's u have to make 1 ... 10.
( for eg. 1 = (4/4)*(4/4)
2 = ?
.
.
10 = ? )
6) student,canopy,thirst,... are the words given.
u have to group the words using the following words
1)Master
2)Teacher
3)Deft
etc..(i don't remember some of words)
7) U have to cut a Pizza using 7 st. lines(wit out
rearranging) and u have to obtain maximum number of
pieces.
( Give generalised solution..)
8) U have to cut a Cylindrical cake of diameter 32 cm
and height 20 cm in to 12 equal pieces.
9) In a village there r 2 groups.
1) Knight > always tell true
2) Knave > always tell false
Mr.X met a man of that village(u don't which grp he
belongs) and questioned "Tell me whether u r knight
or knave ?"
Reply: "i cannot tell u and left that place"
Find which grp that man belongs to?
10) obtain 277 from 3,25,50,65,100.use 4 arithmetic
operations only.
11) 1#2=x ,2#3=y, 4#4=z
4@14=a, 5@15=b, d@e=f
( i don't remember values for x,y,z,a,b,c,d,e,f)
find (2#4)@5= ?
12) (i don't remember what they had given.)
It is just example for that question,
CODE is encoded as DGBF
READ is encoded as JHNV
2. Essay(General).
==================
(Topic given:INDIA should spend money on Atom bomb
and Rocket OR for the welfare of poor.)
3. Problem solving.
===================
(Problem statement: How will u determine number of
Petrol bunks in Madras.)
4. Programming.(4 Qns)
===============
( we can use any Programming Language for coding)
a) They had given one function ,we have to find it
what it does and also problem in the fn. and how to
overcome it.
double what( double z, int y)
{
double answer;
while( y > 0 )
{
if( y%2 == 1)
answer = answer * z;
y=y/2;
z=z*z;
}
return answer;
}
b) They had given one Pseudocode.We have to find bug
in the pseudocode.
I don't remeber the pseudocode fully.But the
function of pseudocode is
"To make a Robot to fetch a tumbler of water"
c) write a program to print all Armstrong numbers,
(abc=a^3+b^3+c^3)
(for eg. 153=1^3+5^3+3^3)
d) write a function witj the following conditions,
1)It should have one integer parameter.
2)If the value passed is ve, return 1.
3)If the value passed is a perfect square, return
root of that number.
4)If the value passed is a not a perfect square,
return that number itself.
COMPANY NAME : VIRTUSA  DATE OF TEST : 2004 
Virtusa Paper consists of 3 sections .
1. Analytical
2. Analytical Writing
3. CProgramming
First when v clear the cutoff of Analytical
section,only then other
sections
r evaluated.So,Don't waste time by spending much time
on Programming.
Analytical Section: 
Analytical Section consists of Vocab. ( pick the odd
one out ) and
also
some codings like ( ALPHA z coded as BETAH , DELTA z
coded as GAMMA,
then how z
ETA coded ? .. this one .. i have framed it :) ) .
This part z a bit
difficult one.
So, my advice z don't think much about these.
Along with above two categories, there shall be
PUZZLES in this
section.In the
recent paper i attended,i got the following
questions.
1.Volume of a LARGE SPHERE z ( pi * # ) .Area of it z
( pi * & ) where
'#,&' r four digit
integers.What z the value of the radius ? ( Along
with answer , v
have to write
approach).
answer: may be 22
2.In howmany ways can a rectangle can be cut into 4
equal parts.
3.Given 1,2,3,25,50,75 and 100 .. Using each number
"one and only
once" and using
arithmetic operators, write 383 in terms of the
above given numbers.
answer: 383 = ( 100 + 2 ) * 3 + 75 + ( (50 * 1)/2 )
4.A tougher question of above. given 1,2,25,50,75,100
.. write 383 in
terms of the given
numbers.
5.Given following sequence,find the how the sequence
is generated.
2 > 1,4,9,6,5,6,9,4,1,0
3 > 1,8,7,4,5,6,3,2,9,0
4 > 1,6,1,6,5,6,1,6,1,0
answer : the sequences r nothing but the UNIT digits
of
square(x),cube(x),power4(x) where
x = [ 1 ... 10 ]
6.Knights always tell TRUTH.Knaves always tell LIE.U
r a foreigner to
that place and
U have met a person and he replies "I am a knave " .
What can u infer
from his
statement.
answer : nothing can be infered from his statement.
7. using 4 fours and arithmetic operations
write from 1 to 10
3 = ( 4 + 4 + 4 ) / 4
4 = ( 4  4 ) * 4 + 4
5 = ( 4 * 4 + 4 ) / 4
6 = 4 + ( 4 + 4 )/4 // 4 + 2
7 = ( 4 + 4 )  ( 4 / 4 )
8 = ( 4 + 4 ) * ( 4 / 4 )
9 = ( 4 + 4 ) + ( 4 / 4 )
10 = ( 44  4 ) / 4
I forget the two more questions.
Analytical Writing : 
This section has two questions only.
1.General topic. ( Don't forget that v have to just
write one page
only .. not an essay)
( So,write the points directly )
For us they gave topics
Is it necessary for to HOST AFROASIAN GAMES ?? Why
can't it spend
that money
for the welfare of poor ?
OR
Can India have better results if the current for of
govt. is changed
to
PRESEDENTIAL FORM OF GOVT. ( like USA ) .
2.He gives a highly impossible possible and asks to
give a solution.(
To check ur
innovative ideas :) )
For us,
Suppose u have suddenly changed to an ANT.U know
human's
abilities,but u have
forgot their language.How can u make urself to
convey ur BELOVED that
u have
been changed to an ANT.
Programming : 
This section consists of 4 questions.Out of 4, for 3
questions v have
to write
code.The last question shall be .. they shall give
some code and v
have to write whether
the code is correct one r not .. if not correct ,
where the
modifications show be done.
and also v have to write what that CODE IS DOING.
Analytical and Logical reasoning.
