Based on your combined score in both sections, you can get selected in this round.
Round 2(Coding Test): It actually took place in 2 groups. I was in the first group, and we had to do 2 questions in 60 mins and they were quite easy if you’ve basic knowledge of programming. But the questions of the second group were a bit tough and were based on sorting algorithms.

- What was the accuracy achieved and how could you make it better.
- Questions related to other projects
Next, he started asking me questions about the domain
- Gave me questions and asked me to write codes in Java. (and was questioning why I wrote that)
- Write code for JDBC connectivity
- MySQL queries related to join cross join, etc
- What are the layers of OSI model, their functionalities, how is data transferred, other network related questions
- Some basics of C/C++, OOPS concept, virtual function, friend function
- Operating system basics
It lasted for 30-40 mins approx. I was able to clear this round
Round 6(Technical Interview-2): It was more based on modern technology knowledge. And clearly if you don’t know the answer to any question just politely tell the interviewer about it.
- He asked me about the technology I’m interested in.
- A few questions about my project.
- Bitcoins and new emerging technologies. It was more of a discussion at this point
I was able to clear this round as well
Round 7(HR Interview): We all were exhausted at this time because it was 1:00 am. He firmly said that “you know this is not an elimination round so don’t hesitate to answer”.
- Questions related to answers marked by me in the behavioral test.
- My hobbies and I mentioned my public journal so asked me questions related to that.
- What are your future plans related to further studies?
- Do you have any Location constraints?
It lasted for 30 mins. The process was over then.
We got our results in a week, and I was selected. Always remember to be thorough with the concepts and be honest, if you don’t know the answer say no instead of trying to fool them.
