The first time I attended codevita was on last year (2019), where I sat for 6 hours and I could not solve even 1 problem. One year later I got some experience in competitive programming and I also learned some algorithms (Backtracking, DP, … etc). This year, I solved 3 problems. The first one was based on looping. The second one was based on recursion and the third one was based on backtracking. I got a rank of less than 500.
So I got a call for the interview, through my college. Due to the pandemic situation, the interview happened virtually. On the day of the interview, the HR manager called me to join the meeting link which was sent to me. But when I tried to join, the server was loading forever. They waited for like 20 minutes, and then they told me to resolve the issue before they finish the next candidate. So then I found and resolved the issue(the server won’t respond when you use airtel mobile data). After 1 hour, I joined the meeting.
There were 3 members – 1 HR, 1 managerial person, and 1 Technical Person.
