Royal Bank of Scotland Interview Experience (On-Campus for Internship)
Round 1: It was an online test, there were 52 questions to be solved in 1 hour and 30 minutes. 10 questions on logical aptitude, 10 on quantitative ability, 10 on verbal, 20 from OOPS, OS, DBMS, and DS Algo. There were 2 coding questions too, both were quite easy and brute force worked in both of them. In question one, an array was given we had to return the number of elements on the left which were higher than the particular element. I don’t remember the second question but that was of the same difficulty.
Out of 90 people they shortlisted 56 people for the next round.
Round 2: This was written round, or group fly as they called it. We all were given two questions that had to be solved on a white sheet within 20 minutes. The questions were
- Find the nth root of a number x correct up to 4 decimal places.
- given an unsorted array and a variable sum, you are supposed to find quadruplets from the given array itself such that their sum is equal to the variable sum. The quadruplets had to be stored in an array in sorted order.
Round 3: Out of 56 people 15 were shortlisted for personal interviews, the first question they asked was to introduce yourself, as I had appeared for PIs before I answered it well, I explained about my projects, I had worked on Microsoft Azure services, and had done Machine learning and Web development too. Then they asked me what difficulties/challenges I faced during my projects. And what are you expecting from RBS, and why RBS? To this, I said that they told that interns were given quite interesting projects to work on and the people seemed to be good. They asked me about my leadership ability and what success means to me. It was more like an hr round.
Out of these 15 people they finally selected 4 of us including me 🙂
