The questions were not that tricky. All questions could be solved by using the simple formulae. For numerical ability, I referred to ‘Quantitative aptitude by RS Agarwal’. I also referred to the sites named freshersworld, indiabix and careerride for numerical and verbal part.
My group discussion topic was National Education Policy. Everyone spoke about its advantages and disadvantages. It was a very good experience.
For the interview, Questions from the resume and questions related to the company were asked. First and foremost question in any interview is self introduction. After that, they asked me about my projects which I mentioned in the resume, about the technology used and how it works etc. They had asked me to specify any two favourite subjects. Then the questions were from ECE core, very basic questions. I was asked to draw the diode characteristics and to explain it in detail. Questions were also from the communication part.
You should be well prepared for a good self introduction,then 90% of the interview is finished. You should also have a very good understanding of the projects you have done / mentioned in your resume. Answer the questions with confidence. If you are not sure about the answer, please let them know. I referred to Interview experiences from the sites indiabix and freshersworld for this round.

The test consisted of Time and Work, Profit and Loss etc. I practiced the aptitude part from online websites such as ‘indiabix’ and learned formulas and shortcuts.
After getting qualified from the first round, GD was conducted. A group of 8 was made. Before GD we all prepared on current affair topics. During GD, the topic given was ‘Is India prepared for cyber- attacks’. A minute was given to think and note down our points. After that GD was conducted and 5 out of 8 were selected for the technical interview.
Technical round was on Microsoft Teams for about 20 minutes. More questions were from ECE core.The questions asked were from the electronics basics. Just make sure that you are thorough with the concepts of electronics. Study at least two subjects up to the core.
The mistake that I made was, I only studied the concepts and the facts and failed to look upon their real-life application. So I recommend all to study the concepts along with their real world scenarios.

At first, we had a test consisting of Numerical, Verbal, Reasoning sections. The most common topics which I found were Time and work ,probability,profit and loss. It was somewhat easy compared to other placement exams. I followed YouTube videos of CAT coaching by Yodha and then searched for more practice questions on the internet.
Then, after two days I was selected for a Group Discussion round. It was difficult because it was in virtual mode and I tried to speak in the first 2 -3 minutes because after that your chance gets reduced, this was an advantage for me to be confident in speaking. While speaking, be confident and clear. While preparing for GD start reading news newspapers and general topics.
Then, I got selected for the interview. It was conducted on Microsoft Teams for about 40 minutes. Basic electronics core questions like transistor, filter,op-amp ,their design etc was asked. I was able to answer the core electronics questions quite well. Study the basic concepts, they don’t check your in depth knowledge, they just check your understanding of the basic core subjects. Do check Google for basic interview based technical questions on ece that will help you a lot.
Alstom the name sounds like it will be very difficult but it’s quite easy. Mainly focus the initial aptitude exam, if your basic core subjects are strong and understand the basics of the topics then it will be easy to crack the technical round ..focus on any 2 core subjects.
