IBM off campus drive

IBM off campus drive – Feb 2013 – Kolkata.

Hello everyone..
I am Sudipta Biswas and I have completed B.Tech from JIS College of Engineering in 2012.

I got an invitation mail for IBM-GBS off-campus drive in Kolkata which was held on 6th FEB, 2013.

Here is my experience during the drive.

IBM DAY 1: Aptitude test (Series Completion, quantitative aptitude)

About 20 series and 20 quant was there.

For each question 2 min 15 sec were given.
There was no negative marking.

Some series which I remember –
