Online Test(Round 1)
This round contains 50 MCQs and the time limit was 60 minutes. As my branch was Electronics and Communication so this round contains MCQs from Digital Electronics, Basic Electronics, Integrated Circuits, 8085 MicroProcessor, and some from Analog Electronics.
For CS/IT students MCQs were from DBMS, OS, CN. And for CS/IT students there was another Coding round which consists of 3-4 coding questions and you can choose any language(Java, C++, Python).
After this round within 2 hours, I got shortlisted mail. Only 78 students shortlisted for the next round 39 from CSE, 21 from ECE, 11 from IT, and 7 from EEE. The next day we had a Technical interview.

HR Interview(30 minutes)
Started with the introduction, project discussion, why I wanna join Bosch and a lot of discussion about my achievements and some questions related to my paper publications. He was very impressed and asked if I have any questions then I asked about the work and some more questions.
Points to take care
- Clear your basics of electronics and basic questions of any programming language.
- In every round, they ask about projects so you must have good knowledge of your projects and everything you should know about your project.
- Mention only those stuff in your resume which you can explain well.
All the best!
