Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: Objective- Aptitude+Electronics+C
Interview Experience
It was outsourced to some online venture.. Test was quite tough.. 
Interview Tips
A good grasp on aptitude questions will help immensely.. There are many common aptitude questions which will be asked in most exams.. study them well.. be good with probability, permutations and combinations.. Should know the basic electronic circuits, KCL, KVL etc thoroughly..
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Technical Interview went well.. They asked only simple basic questions!
Interview Tips
Study the following courses well- Digital systems, Digital IC Design, Computer architecture..Knowledge on steps of VLSI design flow and latest technologies will give you an extra edge in the interview 
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
there were two rounds! Asked some convention HR questions. Also based on resume..
Interview Tips
Be ready with answers to conventional HR questions like "Why do you want to join Intel?" , "Why should we hire you" etc. Make sure that your answers will let them know that you have done a good background study on the company(you SHOULD do that in advance!).. Be ready to explain each and every point in resume. Many time they were looking for non conventional answers.. Good preparation in advance helped me a lot!
