Hi Everyone. I am Rahul A Pardeshi frm Rajarambapu Institute of Technology, Sangli. B4 starting i want to thank GOD ,my parents and friends. The Aptitude started at 10.00am. Students from 9 diff colleges appeared for the test.
The aptitude results were out till 12.30. The first name announced was mine. Was very happy but the pressure was building on.
They shortlisted 76 out of 550(near about)
After the aptitude they had PPT.
G.D was cancelled as only 76 of us were there.
After G.D , there was T.I & P.I.
They need students who are Strong Technically and good at Soft Skills.

There are two sections
1)Qantititive (20 Ques)
