Professional and academic backgroundAt the time of the interview, I had 0 Years (fresher) of experience. My academic qualification is B.E from Rajarshi shahu college of engineering.Cognizant interview Rounds:Round 1
Round type - Online Test
Round description -
Platform:- Amcat
Sections:- Quants, Logical, Verbal
In this exam we could switch between sections.
The major topics included Ratio, Proportion, averages.
All the questions were easy to moderate level. However, in the verbal section they had synonyms and antonyms. Now for me I knew most of the words, but some of my friends got very tricky words that they didn't know. So it also depends on luck a bit.

Round duration - 30 minutes
Round description -
It was a 30 minutes round only. Since I am from Electronics and telecommunications, my questions were from my projects only and there were no coding questions, only some basic programming logic questions were asked.
