Last Year the Recruitment Drive for Wipro was conducted by Aspiring Minds (AMCAT). There were sectional cutoff, but believe me, questions were very easy. So, there is nothing to panic.
Around 1100 to 1200 students were selected through written for the Interview Round. There were two rounds of interview viz. Technical Interview followed by the HR Interview. Unlike, Cognizant, there is no waiting process after the technical interview. If you are selected, you will be called through the phone to come and attend the HR Interview. Please be alerted as you may receive the call anytime from the volunteers.
Finally 415 students were recruited by Wipro from the HR Round.
There is a special privilege for the students who have an aggregate of 75 % and above throughout the career. They are allowed to appear directly for the interview, without even appearing for Written and Essay Writing Round. But please keep in mind that in such cases, the technical interview will be a standard and conceptual one.

Interview Success Plan:
You will be interviewed either by a Graduate Recruiter or a Manager from within the business. Your interviewer will want you to draw on examples from your university life, extracurricular activities and other interpersonal skills. You will also be probed on your career ambitions and your interest in consulting, IT, and outsourcing. We will want to be certain that you have researched your career options and can show your understanding and drive towards working at WIPRO. For some requirements, a mini case study may also be conducted that will test your logic and problem-solving skills.
How do I prepare?
-> Re-read your application form before your interview to remind yourself of what you have written (your interviewer will refer to it during the interview).
-> Think of recent examples you can give to demonstrate how you meet our criteria. Examples can be from your academic, personal or
work life. Think about what we do for clients at Wipro and, more specifically, what you would be doing if you worked for us as an Analyst.
-> If possible, speak to someone who already works for the company to get a real feel for what we do, or come along to one of our presentations.
-> If ou e ot f o a te h i al a kg ou d, thi k a out ho ou a demonstrate your interest in a career in technology. For example, you may have taught yourself basic programming skills, or some work experience may have sparked your interest in technology.
-> Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview – there is nothing worse than arriving late and feeling flustered
-> Try to relax and be yourself. We are interested in getting to know you and your personality. While an interview can be nerve-wracking, try to remain calm throughout
-> Be confident and engaging, smile and make eye contact. This will create a good impression and make the interview more interesting
-> Focus on answering the questions asked and, if you are unsure, ask for clarification rather than answering incorrectly or appearing flustered
-> Keep ou a s e s o ise a d do t affle. Re e e a interviewer has a lot of questions to ask and a limited amount of time.
-> Finally, if you have questions to ask at the end of the interview, feel free - but this is by no means expected or mandatory and is not assessed.
LAST MINUTE REVISION
Aptitude Important Formulas
TIME AND DISTANCE -> IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
1. Speed = [Distance/Time],
Distance = (Speed*Time)
2. X km/hr = [x*5/18] m/sec.
3. If the ratio of the speeds of A and B is a: b, then the ratio of the times taken by them to cover the same distance is 1/a: 1/b or b: a.
4. X m/sec = [x*18/5] km/hr.
5. Suppose a man covers a certain distance at x km/hr and an equal distance at y km/hr. then, the average speed during the whole journey is [2xy/x+y] km/hr.
PROFIT AND LOSS -> IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
Cost Price: The price, at which an article is purchased, is called its cost price, abbreviated as C.P.
Selling Price: The price, at which an article is purchased, is called its cost price, abbreviated as C.P.
Profit or Gain: The price, at which an article is purchased, is called its cost price, abbreviated as C.P.
Loss: If S.P is less than C.P., the seller is said to have incurred a loss.
1. Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.)
2. Loss or gain is always reckoned on C.P.
3. Gain% = [Gain*100/C.P.]
4. Loss = (C.P.) - (S.P.)
5. Loss% = [Loss*100/C.P.]
6. S.P. = (100+Gain %) /100 * C.P.
7. S.P. = (100-Loss %) /100 * C.P.
8. C.P. = 100/ (100+Gain %) * S.P.
9. C.P. = 100/ (100-Loss %) * S.P.
10. If an article is sold at a gain of say, 35%, then S.P. = 135% of C.P.
11. If an article is sold at a loss of say, 35%, then S.P. = 65% of C.P.
VOLUME AND SURFACE AREA -> IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
Let length = l, breadth = b and height = h units. Then,
1. Volume = (l x b x h) cubic units.
2. Surface area = 2 (lb + bh + lh)
Let each edge of a cube be of length a. Then,
1. Volume = a3 cubic units.
2. Surface area = 6a2 sq. units.
. Diago al = √ a u its.
Let radius of base = r and Height (or length) = h Then,
. Volu e = ∏ 2h u i u its.
. Cu ed su fa e a ea = ∏ h s . u its.
. Total su fa e a ea = ∏ h + ∏ 2 s . u its
= ∏ h + s . u its.
Let radius of base = r and Height = h. Then,
. Sla t height, l = √h2 + 2 u its.
. Volu e = [ / ∏ 2h] u i u its.
. Total su fa e a ea = ∏ l + ∏ 2 s .u its.
Let the radius of the sphere be r. Then,
. Volu e = [ / ∏ ] u i units.
. Su fa e a ea = ∏ 2 s . u its.
Let the radius of a hemisphere be r. Then,
. Volu e = [ / ∏ ] u i u its.
. Cu ed su fa e a ea = ∏ 2 s . u its.
. Total su fa e a ea = ∏ 2 s . u its.
Remember: 1 litre = 1000 cm3.
BOATS AND STREAMS -> IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
I. In water, the direction along the stream is called downstream. And, the direction against the stream is called upstream.
II. If the speed of a boat in still water is u km/ht and the speed of the stream is v km/hr, then :
Speed downstream = (u + v) km/hr
Speed upstream (u - v) km/hr.
III. If the speed downstream is a km/hr and the speed upstream is b km/hr, then :
Speed in strill water = 1/2 (a + b) km/hr
Rate of stream = 1/2 (a - b) km/hr
PARTNERSHIP -> IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
I. Partnership : When two or more than two persons run a business jointly, they are called partners and the deal is known as partnership.
II. Ratio of Division of Gains :
(i) When investments of all the partners are for the same time, the gain or loss is distributed among the partners in the ratio of their investments.
Suppose A and B invest Rs. x and Rs. y respectively for a year in a business, then at the end of the year :
A s sha e of p ofit : B s sha e of p ofit = x : y.
(ii) When investments are for different time periods, then equivalent capitals are calculated for a unit of time by taking (capital * number of units of time). Now, gain or loss is divided in the ratio of these capitals.
Suppose A invests Rs. x for p months and B invests Rs. y for q months, the A s sha e of p ofit : B s sha e of p ofit = p : .
III. Working and Sleeping Partners: A partner who manages the business is known as working partner and the one who simply invests the money is a sleeping partner.
BANKERS DISCOUNT -> IMPORTANT CONCEPTS
Ba ke s Dis ou t: Suppose a merchant A buys googds worth, say Rs. 10,000 from another merchant B at a credit of say 5 months. Then, B prepares a bill, called the bill of exchange. A signs this bill and allows B to withdraw the amount from his bank account after exactly 5 months.
The date exactly after 5 months is called nominally due date. Three days (known as grace days) are added to it to get a date, known as legally due date.
Suppose B wants to have the money before the legally due date. Then he can have the money from the banker or a broker, who deducts S.I. on the face value (i.e., Rs. 10,000 in this case) for the period from the date on which the bill was discounted (i.e., paid by the banker) and the legall due date. This a ou t is k o as Ba ke s Di ou t B.D.
Thus, B.D. is the S.I. on the face value for the period from the date on which the bill was discounted and the legally due date.
Ba ke s Gai B.G. = B.D. - (T.D.) for the unexpired time.
Note : When the date of the bill is not given, grace days are not to be added.
BANKERS DISCOUNT -> IMPORTANT FORMULAE
I. B.D. = S.I. on bill for unexpired time.
II. B.G. = (B.D.) - (T.D.) = S.I. on T.D. = (T.D.)2 / R.W.
III. T.D. = √P.W. * B.G.
IV. B.D. = [Amount * Rate * Time / 100]
V. T.D. = [Amount * Rate * Time / 100 + (Rate * Time)]
VI. Amount = [B.D. * T.D. / B.D. - T.D.]
VII. T.D. = [B.G. * 100 / Rate * Time]
The face or dial of a watch is a circle whose circumference is divided into 60 equal parts, called minute spaces.
A clock has two hands, the smaller one is called the hour hand or short hand while the larger one is called the minute hand or long hand.
I. In 60 minutes, the minute hand gains 55 minutes on the hour hand.
II. In every hour, both the hands coincide onece.
III. The hands are in the same straight line when they are coincident or opposite to each other.
IV. When the two hands are at right angles, they are 15 minute spaces apart.
V. When the hands are in opposite directions, they are are 30 minute spaces apart.
VI. Angle traced by hour hand in 12 hrs = 360°.
VII. Angle traced by munute hand in 60 min. = 360°.
Too Fast and Too Slow : If a watch or a clock indicates 8.15, when the correct time is 8, it is said to be 15 minutes too fast.
On the other hand, if it indicates 7.45, when the correct time is 8, it is said to be 15 minutes too slow.
TRUE DISCOUNT -> IMPORTANT CONCEPTS
Suppose a man has to pay Rs. 156 after 4 years and the rate of interest is 14% per annum. Clearly, Rs. 100 at 14% will amount to Rs. 156 in 4 years. So, the payment of Rs. 100 now will clear off the debt of Rs. 156 due 4 years hence.
We say that:
Sum due = Rs. 156 due 4 years hence; Present worth (P.W.) = Rs.100;
which y units are taken out and replaced by water.
After n operations, the quantity of pure liquid =

My HR Interview experience in Wipro
• Tell me something about yourself.
My name is Souvik Majumder. I am from Durgapur, West Bengal. Being the eldest son of my family, I had learned how to handle big and huge responsibilities. I am a person who likes to explore the world and know about various things in various sorts of field. I like new challenges. I am a hard working, adaptable and a flexible person with full of self determination. Apart from these, I am a very passionate singer and I have completed 5 years in Classical Vocal Music. So in the free time, I keep myself busy exploring the world of music. Last but not the least; I am a person who believes in simple living and high thinking.
• Simple living and high thinking ... Hmmm... Nice... So you sing... Can you sing a song for me? Any Sweet Bengali Romantic Song?
Sure Mam, why not. (I sang two lines of a song for her and she got impressed and praised me a lot).
• So, you know JAVA. How good are you in JAVA? Are you an expert?
Mam, I know JAVA, but I won’t beat my own drums and say that I am an expert in JAVA. But yes, as I love to code, so I keep on practicing and brushing up my skills on a regular basis.
• But you have to work really hard if you are given a project in the JAVA Domain.
Definitely Mam. I am all ready to work hard for that. And I believe that within the coming year, I will improve myself a lot than I am now.
• Why do you want to join an IT Company?
Mam, I am from ETC. And both ETC and IT are sister branches. They are the two sides of a same coin. And I am a person who doesn’t want to get confined in his own branch or own state for the whole life. I have a passion in learning and gaining experience. Moreover, nowadays every where there is an application of IT. Starting from the smart phone that you are using to a huge surveillance system. So, due to its huge demand, it is growing at a very rapid rate every day. Therefore, I decided to pursue my career with IT as it will give a huge boost up in my career in the latter stage.
• Why do you want to join Wipro?
Mam, first of all I would like to say that the work culture in Wipro is very nice.
Some of my senior friends have already said me about this. Moreover currently the projects that Wipro is currently undergoing have impressed me a lot. In the recent years, it has achieved a huge profit in its various sectors. So, I thought, when a company itself gains such a huge amount of growth, why shouldn’t a newly graduated student decide to join it for a nice career startup.
• Being a person from West Bengal, why do you choose Pune and Bangalore as your preferences, why not Kolkata?
Mam, I have lived in my state for such a long span of time since I was 4 years old. Now, I want to travel, instead of getting confined in my own state. I want to explore places and gain as much as experiences and knowledge I can. And being the topmost and growing IT Hubs in India, I think Pune and Bangalore will be the best options for projects and my career growth.
• Have you reached the HR Rounds of any of the other companies that came with Wipro, or is this your first one?
Yes Mam, I had appeared for the HR Round for Accenture two days back.
• Do you have any questions for me?
Yes Mam I have. Thank you very much for the opportunity. Mam, first of all I would like to ask what are the domains that we will be working for currently, right after the day when we join Wipro? And secondly, will I ever get any chance to shift my domain to a different horizontal, in the near future, or I’ll have to work in the previous domain for the whole life? (Then she answered my questions).
• Do you have anything else in your mind?
No mam, that’s all from my side.
• Thank you Souvik. Thanks for coming. It was really a wonderful interaction with you.
Thank you very much for your valuable time Mam. It was a wonderful interaction with you too.
(I shook my hand with her again, pushed the chair to its original position, took a step back and then turned and walked away from the room, closing the door.)
