Group Activity

Interview Experience
We had two group activities, the first was a Group Case study. Groups of 5 or 6 students were made. The GD was about Barclays taking over a company which had high net worth people which used Aurelia software. The software was good but it was badly coded. So you had few flow charts with the cost, which was used in order to shift this high net worth people on the Barclays Platform. You could also make a new flow chart too but then you had to specify cost. This was the same topic which our seniors had during their process.
The second one was a Group Exercise - a Strategy game called Slide and Score. Here team work and coordination is more important. Just follow the rules. They will give you some time to practice the game as well
Round 4
