Application
I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Surathkal for It analyst role at Citicorp
Interview Process
AMCAT TEST Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

AMCAT TEST

Interview Experience
The selection procedure included an aptitude test managed by Amcat. It included Quant , Verbal, C Aptitude and 2 Coding questions. The level of the questions were easy but the time was limited as in one question per minute time was allotted and the cut-offs were close to 80% in the aptitude sections. Since it was open for all branches 270 people appeared ad 70 were shortlisted.
Interview Tips
For aptitude round Indiabix.com and sample Amcat questions are more than enough.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
They asked me basics of arrays and linked lists which included efficient swapping, searching, deletion, etc and a few puzzles.
Interview Tips
For C Aptitude , basics of DS is sufficient. Also people from non-CS and non-IT branches, do ask your CS and IT friends to tell you some common Data Structures interview questions.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
After this I had a Technical cum HR round where they asked me about my internship, projects, good things about place of internship, about going for further studies and history questions (I had told them I am interested in History so they asked me about the beginning of World War 2 , so its important to choose your hobbies wisely.
Finally one last HR round was conducted where they asked about my family and my 10th, 12th and college Maths subject marks.

Skill Tips
Like I said, be thorough with the basics of Data Structures especially if you do not have a nice internship to show on your CV and try to score high on your Aptitude test. Also brush up everything you have written on your CV and go through common puzzles asked during interviews.
General Tips
Be thorough with your CV. Be honest during the interview especially if you do not know a certain topic. Like I said that being from EEE we do not have Data Structures and OS as part of our curriculum so I know only the basics and that's why he tested me on the same. Also when a puzzle is asked, keep asking relevant questions about the puzzle because most companies see your approach rather than the final solution.

Most of the questions were very basic and they focused more on my internship project so it was a good experience. Also I was the first one to finish all the rounds so it wasn't very exhausting either. Although some had to wait the whole day to get to the first round of interview.

Don't panic, you needn't know everything. Just be sure and confident about what you speak. No special preparation required. But just know what you have done in three years atleast fairly well as not knowing electrical after studying it for three long years would give a wrong impression about your ability to learn and grasp things.

General Tips
1) Have a look at your Resume. Just make sure you know what you have mentioned in it.

2) Go through your Internships and Academic Projects carefully as sometimes Interview are only based on them.

3) Presentation is more important than knowledge. Even if you know all the questions but are not able to deliver/express in from of interview than your knowledge is of no use.

4) No need to take tension how the interviewer will behave with you. They also know your mental state and they initially try to make you comfortable with them. So relax and keep calm.

Since 72 students were shortlisted for interviews, So it was quite challenging to make a way for yourself.For me it was exhausting because I was the last one to be interview in my slot. I was called at around 9:30 am at T&P but I had my interview at 4:30 pm. Till then I was really bored , exhausted and also I was loosing my calm.
