• Difficulty Level : Hard
• Last Updated : 26 Sep, 2020

Morgan Stanley visited our college on 2nd September 2020. Since this was done in the covid era, everything was virtual.

First Round – Online Test: The online test consisted of 3 sections, each done separately and in order. We cannot navigate to another section before completing the current section.

The first section consisted of basic aptitude questions (around 15), to be done in 20 minutes.

Second section was debugging section. In this section, basically we were given a code description and its code, which contained some error(s) (usually logical). We needed to correct it and pass all test cases. We needed to choose a language beforehand for this section, the code will be given in this language. The languages available were C, C++, Java, etc. I chose C. This was a fairly easy section. 20 minutes were given for around 7-8 questions.

Third section was the coding section consisting of three questions. I forgot all the questions, but they were easy if you’re really good at coding, and at worst medium. I did first one full, and the other two partial.

Second coding question was given different sources of electricity, each with different power p and load l. Each power source can be from company A or company B, If it was from company A, it can be directly selected, however if it was from company B, it can only be selected as a pair with another source from company B. Given a maximum capacity load L, what is the maximum power that can be obtained?

Third coding question was given initial charge C and distance D. To travel a unit distance, we need 1 unit of charge. At certain points at distance less than D, we get extra charge. There were m such points. We needed to calculate the minimum number of points we need to take extra charge at, such that we can reach distance D.

Example: C =5 D =20 , points are (5,5), (2,7), (3,10), (7,13) where each pair is (extra charge, distance at which extra charge is available). So we can take (5,5), (3,10),(7,13) to reach D =20. So minimum = 3.

15 students were shortlisted from way too many people in this round for the interviews.

8 students survived this round. We were at the last bastion.

Interview Round -2(HR+Technical): There was no news of the schedule of the next round, so I decided to take a quick nap. When I woke up at 5:30 PM, I saw that I was told to join at 5 PM. I quickly joined thinking I was late, however I was told to wait. Then the HR came first at 7:30 PM. He asked me to again introduce myself. Then he asked me my strengths, achievements. Finally he asked why should we hire you – the classic and cliched question. However, I had totally not prepared for HR – a fatal mistake. I tried to list my achievements again to prove my competence, but it did not seem like he was convinced. After the HR, I was told to wait. The round went for about 20 minutes.
