Round 1: The first round comprised of 20 -30 MCQ questions including C output questions and Programming Fundamentals (Test Duration: 30 Minutes):
This test was conducted in Google form and it was mandatory to submit within 30 minutes otherwise your response will not be considered and you will be disqualified.
The MCQs that were asked were very basic C output and fundamental questions like OOPS concepts etc. I remember some questions:
- Array start from which index?
- What is the use of pointers?
- The question was very easy but there was a time constraint, In my University, more than 600 people enrolled and 80+ are shortlisted for the next round. (Do Read the Tips)
Suggestion: I would suggest doing quizzes from Geeksforgeeks to get in touch with all concepts of C and other subjects.
Tips: Solve the questions with a calm mind. If you have done all the questions just submit them, don’t wait for the last 30 minutes, I remember many of my friends have made All correct but not shortlisted because they have submitted last, I have submitted within 15 Minutes and I got shortlisted for the next round. Don’t spend too much time on any question if you are not able to do it on the first attempt.
