Vice president of the organization was my interviewer.

He asked me about multi tenants(I don’t know).

Later asked me do draw user authentication process in ms paint (I did it).

Also asked me about inspect element trick.

Asked me few more real life problems (Most of which I couldn’t answer)

Later at the end he told me about how graduates this days are good at problem solving but  lacking on knowledge of real life problems (same with me).

He is not satisfied with my performance.

Asked me to focus more on real life problems and not only on competitive programming.

I am sure that I am not gonna get this job.

My suggestion is how good enough you are in coding it is more important for you to know how all this things is working in backend.
