Written test and Interview Rounds
The company divided the placement process into four stages:
- Round 1 - Written Test
- Round 2 - Written and Spoken English Test
- Round 3 - Technical Interview
- Round 4 - HR Interview
Written Test and Coding
The stage of written examination comprised of 120 minutes, from which 46 - 48 questions were to be attended. I was less anxious and worried as I already prepared well for the exam. But, simultaneously, I knew I had to clear this round to make it to the next level. The written test comprised of four rounds in total:
The section included three sub-sections related to coding, in which we were asked to solve questions based on:
- Implementation - 2/3 questions (I attempted only 1 from here)
- DS / Algo - 2 questions (i attempted both)
- Advanced Algo - 2 questions ( I attempted only 1)
The difficulty level was high and thus, the time allotted for this section was not sufficient to complete all.
The English verbal sections were inclusive of questions related to grammatical errors, reading comprehension, and correction of sentences.
- Quantitative Aptitude
The topics covered under this section were Average, Time and Work, Simplification, Profit and Loss, Probability, and Percentage.
- Logical Reasoning
This was the toughest part of the written test. The questions of logical reasoning were from coding-decoding and deciphering seating arrangements.
(Total 120 mins)
||120 minutes (shared with all sections)
The online test results were declared and I was happy to see the positive results. I was told that my second round will be conducted within 2 days.
I spent the time revising some of the technical questions on PrepInsta for my technical Interview.
Round 2 - English Grammar
This round was to my surprise a very different round than usual. We had to listen properly and answer, solve grammar questions and audio Comprehension too.
- Total no. of questions - 71
- Total time allotted - 45 minutes
The time given for this round was enough to solve all the questions.
I joined the online Zoom call for the interview. After the general introduction, he started asking questions. The difficulty level of the questions was high as they were from topics such as:
- Operating Systems
- Digital Electronics
- C Language and coding
Fortunately, I was able to respond to most of the questions with their appropriate answers. The interviewer with the least facial expressions said: “Thank You”.
After crossing the above rounds satisfactorily, I was looking forward to having a good talk session in this round. As the roles and responsibilities signify, he was humble and started with the “Greetings of the day”. The round was better from the previous ones, the questions were related to:
- Family Background
- Location Preferences
- Strengths and Weaknesses
As the session of questions and answers got completed, he jumped to the salary discussion. Everyone who appears for this round must possess two factors: positive and confident outlook.
Finally, I received a mail after 2 days that i was selected for the job and I could start it within a month.
