Goldman Sachs Internship Interview Experience (On-Campus)
Around 200 students appeared for the online round which consisted of 2 Easy-Medium Coding questions and 1 Advanced Level Coding Question along with 10 MCQ’s based on Quants and 2 essay type questions.
25 students were shortlisted for the Technical Interview Round.
1st Interview Round ( Tech ):
- What is the difference between SQL and NoSQL databases?
- What type of database is MongoDB? Is MongoDB really schemaless ?
- How to add and delete nodes from the middle and end of LinkedList? Write code for the same on the paper.
I answered all the questions and the round was wonderful. Out of 25 students, only 12 students could make it to the next round.

Only 8 students qualified for the next technical round.
