Cognizant Aptitude Questions 2021

Cognizant Student Experience

Student Interview

In 2020, Cognizant was hiring for 2 roles at a time.

Previously, they used to conduct on-campus drives for all the streams for the GenC profile(4.5 LPA). And after that, the CSE & IT students were allowed to sit for the higher package i.e GenC Next (6.5 LPA).

Eligibility Criteria to sit for CTS : 

  • No backlogs.
  • 60% throughout the academics.
  • Maximum 2 years gap allowed.
  • Year of passing - 2021
  • All streams were allowed.

The online test was conducted on 18th October’20 on the AMCAT platform. The link to the online test was sent to us 2 days ago. And the slot was from 12 am to the next day at 12 am. And you are free to give the test at any time within this.

After opening the link, you will be asked to fill a form stating all the important details, areas of interest, internships, and the need to upload your CV too. This process takes around 15-20 mins. After completion of the whole thing, you will be redirected to the actual test.

 

  • Round 1 ( Online Test) - 
  • Quants ( 24 qs)
  • Logical (25 qs)
  • Code Debugging (7 qs, languages - C, C++, Java, Python) -

I practiced a few qs from https://prepinsta.com/cognizant/automata-fix/ and trust me similar types of qs were asked. So if you are clear with the basics of any of these languages, I am sure you will be able to solve at least 2-3 qs. And with that can easily make for GenC.

  • Essay writing ( 1 ques) - 
  • If you win a lottery of 10 crores, what will you do?

If one can solve more than 5 qs in the automata fix section and score more or less good in aptitude, they will be selected for the higher profile.

I solved around 6 qs in the automata section and was allowed to sit for the coding round for GenC next profile. 

  • Round 2 - Coding Round (4 ques, around 2 hours) -

Competitive qs were asked in this particular round. So if one has a good practice of solving competitive coding qs, then that person can go through this.

I remember two of those ques - 

  • Ques :

Write a program to calculate the fuel consumption of your truck. The program should ask the user to enter the quantity of diesel to fill up the tank and the distance covered till the tank goes dry. Calculate the fuel consumption and display it in the format (liters per 100 kilometers)

  • Ques: To find the hamming distance.

Those who were able to solve at least 3 qs with all the test cases passed cleared this round. I was able to solve only one of these and was directed for a GenC interview not for GenC Next.

The interview happened at least a month after this coding round. The technical & HR interviews were clubbed together in around.

 

  • Round 3 - Interview 

Interview Ques : 

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Difference between latches and flip-flop.
  • What is a multiplexer?
  • Projects you had done in these 3 years.
  • OOPs Principles.
  • Difference between C & Java.
  • Garbage Collection in Java.
  • Applications of DSP.
  • Write a program to check whether the number is Armstrong or not.
  • Difference between array and linked list.
  • Recent technologies that you are aware of.
  • Gave 3-4 aptitude qs.
  • Why CTS?
  • Any issues with relocation?

It was more of a technical and 2-3 qs were from HR. I was from Electronics and made this round.

Status: SELECTED ( for GenC profile)
