In 2017 Capgemini had Introduced a new section called essay writing where they basically check if you can write emails in capgemini essay topics by CoCubes. Since, you will have to contact many clients by email in US, Europe etc. So, its very vital for them.

  • Time Duration for Essay Writing – 30 mins
  • Number of Essay – 1
  • Total Words – The number of words were never mentioned in the test however the CoCubes Text Editor(CoCubes hosts test for Capgemini) had a limit of 5000 words.

We think a 300-500 word essay is enough.

  1. First Campus Interview Experience
  2. My Best Friend
  3. Are we too dependent on Computers
  4. Digitization and its benefits
  5. My last vacation with Parents
  6. Are corrupt but efficient politicians better than honest but inefficient politicians
  7. Education – Importance in the development of the country
  8. Your Favourite Sports person
    Reservation in India
  9. Effect of Mobile Phones in Teenagers

A 300 word essay is enough. What they will award points or deduct points on are the following –

  1. Spellings
  2. Punctuations
  3. Grammar
  4. Paragraphisation(Divide in 2/3 Para)
  5. Using heavy words that are considered to be proficient in English will not award extra points
  6. Thus it is advisable to write in normal English with good grammar and spelling and punctuation.

CapGemini Syllabus 2018 Interview Experience

Round 1- Written Test

Capgemini’s written test was conducted by Cocubes, and it was an online test. This section is standard for all the branches.

Cocubes Pattern of Questions for Capgemini Pattern is as follows:

  1. Quants: There were questions on Data Interpretation, speed, and distance, boat and stream, etc. This section was bit hard because the time limit was 50  minutes shared with logical section and the questions were little tough to solve.
  2. Logical reasoning: This was my favorite section as I was able to attend all the questions in given time.
  3. Pseudo Code: This section contained questions on C, C++, OOPS concepts, Data Structures & Algorithm. The time limit for this section was 20 minutes. I scored well in this section because my technical skills are strong. I had checked a website where they said only predicting output and code correction etc will be there. 
  4. Essay writing: This was the last section of the first round. The time limit was 30 minutes. There is no Syllabus, but you must be aware of current topics related to politics, economy, national and international happenings, etc.

The sectional and overall cut-off for the test was 70 percentile. I have prepared from PrepInsta website as they provide interview preparation materials for Capgemini placements. I cleared the cut-off and was called for the second round.

Round 2-Group Discussion

In this round, the students were divided into groups, and a topic was assigned. Topics were related to happening in and around you. In this round, the interviewer expected the students to give valid and relevant points.

This round was conducted to check our interpersonal skills. I was confident about my selection as I have good communication skills. Eventually, when the result was announced, I was called for the last round.

Round 3- Technical/HR Interview

The technical interview was elaborative. The interviewer glanced through my marksheets and started asking questions from every subject. Some in detail and some in an overview fashion. I was asked about the subject that I considered to be my strength.

Obviously, a few in-depth questions related to that subject were asked. Then, I was asked about the projects that I had done in the past. I remember he went deep into microcontrollers, signals and system.

  • Time Complexity of Data Structures Algorithms
  • Program to Write Palindrome of a number
  • Program to check if a string is palindrome or not
  • Questions about Microcontrollers, signals and systems

Later the interviewer took my HR round and asked some personal questions like,

  1. Is any of your relative associated with the company?
  2. What is the biggest achievement of your life?
  3. What are your greatest professional strengths?
  4. How do you feel about working in nights shift?
  5. What is your commitment towards the company?

Overall the complete experience of the interview was something new for me, and I added more of confidence in me.
