Student Experience for Accenture

On Campus
  • Name: Krishna Nagarjun

  • Type of interview: On-Campus Interview

Student Interview

This year Accenture came to our college for recruitment drive. Our TPO (training and placement officer) provided us the registration link so that we can register ourselves and get our admit cards. Furthermore, he told all girls to lay great emphasis on this drive as Accenture hire more girls, and therefore, the chances of selection are higher among girls. The eligibility criteria for Accenture was 60% throughout the academic career and no current backlogs. So I immediately started preparing for the drive through previous Accenture interview question on PrepInsta. I practiced both solved and unsolved papers for the placement drive. There were two rounds in the interview, first, the MeritTrac aptitude test and second, the HR round.

MeritTrac Paper

This paper had three sections: Verbal ability, LRDI and Attention to Detail. We had to clear each section individually to clear the cut-off.

  • The Verbal section had passages, reading comprehensions, and sentence correction, and synonyms and antonyms questions. There were in-total 20 questions in this section.
  • The LRDI section had 20 questions on coding-decoding, analytical reasoning, letter series, and seating arrangement. The time limit was 25 minutes.
  • The Attention to Detail questions were slightly tricky. The questions were based on pattern matching. There were 15 questions in this section. PrepInsta was a great help in practising such type of questions.

The results were uploaded on the college website. Fortunately, I cleared the paper and was selected for the HR Interview round.

All the selected candidates were asked to report in the college auditorium sharp at 9:00 a.m. with the original and Xerox documents along.

HR Interview

The interview began at 10:00 A.M. I was very nervous before the interview. As I entered the hall, the HR was seated there. He asked me for my resume, and started asking questions from it.

  • What was your project about?
  • What language did you use?
  • What was your roll in it?
  • What do you know about Accenture?
  • What profile are you looking for in Accenture?
  • Why should we hire you?

The interview went for 15-20 minutes. It was great experience. The list of all the selected students was displayed on the college notice board.

Luckily, I got selected. After a week I received a congratulations mail from Accenture, and was invited to join Accenture Bengaluru as Software Engineer Trainee.

My centre for the test was in Bangalore. The elitmus Test was divided into three sections, Quantitative AnalysisLogical Reasoning and Data Interpretation and Verbal Ability. The test was of 120 minutes and every section had exactly 20 questions each. To clear this paper I had to score minimum 75 percentile in each section.

  • In the Quantitative Analysis or The Aptitude section, most of the questions were related to speed time and distance. I had practiced many questions of this type on PrepInsta. The questions were very difficult and time consuming.
  • In the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section, all the questions were of medium-difficulty level except one, the crypto arithmetic question.
  • In the Verbal Ability section, there were four Reading comprehension passages, para-jumbles, synonyms and antonyms questions.

The result of the paper was declared after 14 days. I scored 78 percentile in Quants, 90.06 percentile in Logical Reasoning and 88.08 percentile in Verbal. On an average I was eligible to apply for major IT companies. I applied through the eLitmus site for Accenture.
