Also Remember

• Being without pressure will give a lot of room in your brain to think

• Take enough time and solve DS problem without any urgency. Even if the interviewer urges you, you can take extra time by asking him politely.

• You’ll just have to give an impression that you are potential enough to do the job. Your one line showing your interest towards the firm or the one complementing statement about those guys can definitely raise your performance up a notch.

• The HR questions asked are not to know about you. It is to check how well you communicate. When the HR asks “Why CSE?”, he definitely is not expecting an answer like “CSE has a lot of scope in the future”. You can definitely make up stories here and make the answers lot more interesting and unique.
