Students who have cleared aptitude test were shortlisted for the Coding test. There were two Coding questions which are mostly on string and arrays. First was an easy one and second one was of medium difficulty. Students who cleared at least one coding question with good aptitude score are shortlisted for the next round.

12. Any questions for me?
Round 4:
HR Interview (40 – 45 minutes)
Around 70 people gave the HR Interview. Although mine was more of a Technical than a HR Interview.
Questions asked were:

Other panel’s HR Questions were like what Marvel characters you like? and why, What film you like the most, Favourite actor/actress, tell me about your friends, etc.
Around 37 students were selected. I was one of them!
Key Points:
Focus on your resume. Even if you don’t recollect the answer, tell them and don’t bluff. Interview panel is co-operative and gives you hints if you ask them questions. Maintain eye contact and smile during the interview. Ask Smart questions.
