Online Coding Round | Time: 70 minutes | 3 Coding Questions
- Was based on Number System.
- Counting the number of minimum currency required for given amount.

Around 50 students were selected from the coding round and were called for further interview rounds and most of them solved two of them. I also did two only third was giving error and countdown said time is over.
Round 1(Technical Interview): The interviewer was very friendly. He asked me to introduce my self Then he asked me some question
- Length of the longest substring without repeating characters.

After approximately 30 minutes got mail for a second-round interview.
