Infosys Interview Experience for SES | HackWithInfy 2020
Round 1: This round happened at HackerEarth which consists of 3 coding questions which were of 50, 75, and 100 marks according to the difficulty which you need to solve in 3 hours. Those who were able to solve 1 or more than 1 question were selected for the next round. The questions were mainly based on DS/Algorithms and Mathematics. Don’t copy code from somewhere as they have a strong plagiarism checker and many students were not able to qualify for the next round even after solving 2 or more questions.
Round 2: This round was also happened at HackerEarth and having the same pattern for 3 hours and 3 questions. In this round questions were mostly based on DP, Mathematics, and Graph. Those who were able to 1 to 1.5 questions were selected for SES(System Engineer Specialist) role and those who were able to solve 2 or more than two were selected for PP(Power Programmer) role. I was selected for SES role as I have solved 1 question completely and other parts.
