IBM Research IRL interview
There were three sections
1.Manipulation of matrices 15 question (No negative marks,3 parts in this section)
2.Number sequences 20 questions (with negative marking . very simple,try to practice more questions and do at-least 12-15 Q)
3. Quant 12 questions (with negative marks, try to read question and solve them without pen)
I had written the same paper (model) for IBM internship, but fared very badly in that, so was cautious this time.
Everyone said that education is necessary and supported..
i got points on both the sides (supporting and opposing), so as every body spoke for it, i spoke against the topic.
1.Tell me about yourself.
2. I had said that i was interested in coding, and they asked an example, i explained it confidently.. this was the only tough program i attempted on my own,so I explained the algorithm.
3. He asked about my family details and my experience in NITW.
i said i attempted 12/20 in number seq and 11/12 in quant and i am confident that i have answered 10 correct in quant..
Then he said ok, I think he was convinced..
He then asked me about my strengths and weaknesses..
He also gave a chance to ask questions.
I strongly feel if you have good communication skills you can easily crack interview, but practice a lot of num. seq, quant, speed calc..
