The Capgemini Interview Round as discussed above, is further divided into 2 parts
In the Technical Round the executives will be judging you on your:
Final Year Projects, that you have mentioned in your resume.
Some of the sample trick questions that were asked in the previous year Interview Round are-:
Question 1- Three ants are sitting at the three corners of an equilateral triangle. Each ant starts randomly picks a direction and starts to move along the edge of the triangle. What is the probability that none of the ants collide
Question 2- Four people need to cross a rickety bridge at night. Unfortunately, they have only one torch and the bridge is too dangerous to cross without one. The bridge is only strong enough to support two people at a time. Not all people take the same time to cross the bridge. Times for each person: 1 min, 2 mins, 7 mins and 10 mins. What is the shortest time needed for all four of them to cross the bridge?
Question 3- A man has two ropes of varying thickness (Those two ropes are not identical, they aren’t the same density nor the same length nor the same width). Each rope burns in 60 minutes. He actually wants to measure 45 mins. How can he measure 45 mins using only these two ropes.
He can’t cut the one rope in half because the ropes are non-homogeneous and he can’t be sure how long it will burn.
Rest than these questions there will be questions related to your branch, that whether you are from a coding or a non-coding branch
For Coding branches CS/IT/ECE

Student Interview Experince
Few of the Latest Interview Experiences from the latest Capgemini Drive are given below
Name: Ravi Thottumkal
College: M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore
Type of Interview: On-Campus
Recently Capgemini India visited our campus for the on-campus recruitment drive.
The student should have secured a minimum of 60% in 10th, 12th.
The student should not have any backlogs at the time of joining.
The student should not have an education gap of more than one year.
I fulfilled this criterion, so I was eligible to participate in the drive.
The selection process had three rounds:
Round 1- Written Test
Capgemini has been using CoCubes as the first round of the placements. Thus, I studied from CoCubes Capgemini Previous year papers that were availed on PrepInsta. The pattern of the test was as follows:
Quants: The time limit to attend this section was 25 minutes, and it had 16 questions. This section included questions on Data Interpretation, speed, and distance, Algebra, equations, progression, profit and loss, ratio and percentage, averages, geometry, probability, etc.
Logical reasoning: The time limit to attend this section was 25 minutes, and it had 16 questions. This section included questions on topics: visual reasoning, blood relations, flowcharts, statement, and conclusion, etc.
Pseudo Code: This section contained 20 questions on C, C++, OOPS concepts, Data Structures & Algorithm. The time limit for this section was 30 minutes.
Essay writing: It had only one question on current affairs with the time limit of 10 minutes.
The sectional and overall cut-off for the Capgemini written test was 70 percentile. I cleared the cut-off and therefore, was eligible for the subsequent rounds.
Round 2- Group Discussion
After the result of the written test, the students who cleared the test successfully, qualified for the Group discussion round. In this round, the students were divided into groups, and a topic was given to them. The topics were related to the happenings around you. My group got the topic “Is IT industry influencing our culture?”.
In this round, the interviewer expected the students to give valid and relevant points. They checked for our confidence, impromptu knowledge, and ability to convince. We were also checked for our communication skills. Apparently, I was selected on the basis of my voice as mentioned by the recruiter.
Round 3- Personal Interview
This was the last round of the selection process. The interviewer asked me some technical questions on the project, I had done in my final year. He also asked me questions about the fundamental of C, C++, .net, Data Structure, computer networking, etc. Some other questions involved
List the different storage class specifiers in C?
What is the necessity & advantages of OOPS?
Write the programming code to swap two numbers without using the third variable?
What is networking?
What was your role in your major project?
Mainly, he was checking the details written on my resume. Later, he asked some personal questions like,
What does your father do?
What are your future plans?
What are your greatest professional strengths?
Tell us about an accomplishment you are most proud of
Do you want to pursue higher education?
The interviewer was testing my fundamental knowledge and communication skills. So, my confident answers helped me to clear this round as well. Later, he gave feedback on my interview. When the results were announced, I learned that I was selected.
