Round 1: Online
Virtusa Polaris conducted Pool campus for NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Durgapur, and NIT Patna at JSR.
The first round comprised of two sections :-
Coding Round – 4 questions
- C ( 2 questions )
- C++ (1 question )
- Java ( 1 question)
The second section had around 60 technical MCQ’s which were mainly from Software Engineering (SDLC models), DBMS, and JAVA. Out of 120 from durgapur, 10 were shortlisted for next rounds at Jamshedpur.
Round 2: Technical
The interviewer greeted me with a smile and asked me to introduce myself. After a brief introductions the first question he asked was, Why not army man? (since my father was in army).
Then he asked Why MCA is better than BTech? – To which I replied that in terms of maturity and decision making i think MCA guys are better than btech but in terms of technical knowledge I think both are same. The interviewer was not satisfied with the answer and insisted that MCA guys should more technically sound than BTech guys.
Since I mentioned that I started learning JAVA recently he refrained asking questions from JAVA.
The questions were –
- Sort a stack (asked me two approaches)
- Indian Flag using HTML (and the ashok chakra too, You cannot insert an image)
- Update statement
- Commit & Rollbacka
- Is there a commit after delete?
- OOPS concepts
- Runtime Polymorphism
- Agile Model
- Comparison of Agile with iterative waterfall model
The interview went on for about 45 minutes I guess, at last when I was explaining about my project he interrupted me and said that’s it from side, to which i asked was it bad? (the interview). He said “Just be happy and go”.
