Test Sections
  • Section 1: Home Assignment
Interview Experience
Though the assignment of Works Application was challenging but if you solve and submit it, there are great chances that you are gonna shortlisted for the next round. I had solved one problem in C++ and the other one in JAVA language. For solving the question you are supposed to be good at data structure, standard algorithm problem(dynamic programming, greedy) and java, C++ or both. If you solve the problem of geeksforgeeks and leetcode regularly you'd really find the problem easy and interesting.
Interview Tips
While solving the assignment you can discuss the algorithm but mustn't share your code with your friends because you can lose such a wonderful opportunity. Just spend your time and you are almost there.
Must submit the problem and start preparing for the live coding round.

Interview Experience
All your past skill of programming gonna be tested in this round. The round would be live where you would be given a small monitor, keyboard and mouse and on the opposite side of you, interviewer gonna watch everything you type in your monitor. The problem would be easy and the are good amount of chances that you might have went through that problems during the preparation. You are asked to program two problem one after another. If you successfully code both passing all the given test cases(two or three generally), kudos!! you are almost selected for works Application.
Interview Tips
Just have patience and be cool while coding and plan your solution before coding.
Round 4

Interview

Interview Questions
    Interview Experience
    It's just a formality round and don't worry about it. In my HR Interview round, the interviewer had set of 20 or few more simple questions asking about myself. We also discussed about the company, working hours and working culture. After the completion of round, the interviewer congratulated with saying, "As you have solved both questions in live coding round and so we are hiring you in WorksApplication".

          In muliple choice question Mostly questions were base on maths, probability, c programs, algorithms, Systems. If you are prepared then Questions were not that much tough. Keep strong concepts of Operating systems. For subjective part, Some problems were from maths proofs, some were from probability, some were from algo. We had to write algorithms. etc

          Interview Experience
          Everyone was cool, They made me feel comfortable and then started asking questions.
          Interview Tips
          If you have good rank in online coding competition, do mention it in CV.Most of the students think that GS asks only probability-puzzles. They did not asked me any question on probability or puzzle. Everything they asked was based on Algorithms problems and Operating system. I think it depends on team for which they are hiring. Most important point is don’t lose hope because you have low CPI or you are not good at something. Keep Operating systems fundamental concepts strong.

          We should balance in Placement and Compititive online coding. Keep in mind Placements and Compititive online coding are some what different things. Keep on improving our mistakes on daily basis. I would strongly suggest you to do introspection daily it will help you to find out your weaknesses and strong points, where we are going wrong etc. There are two thing on which we shoud focus.1. Preparation (I have told everything requered for preparation).2. Get output of all hard work. How to keep our mind on 100% output while the actual exam(placement).For this, I used to go for physical exercise daily in the morning and medidate for 20-30 minutes. Along with exercise i used to do Sudarshan Kriya(Art of Living). Meditation has lot of power :).

          Test Sections
          • Section 1: general aptitude
          • Section 2: computer science
          Interview Experience
          Time management is very important to clear the aptitude test. Besides this a lot of practice is also very important.  This round is the major filteration round. Though each round is a major filteration round cuz NTT DATA is not a bulk recruiter like cts, infy etc. Almost 2-3 thousand students were there for this round from 6 different colleges and only 100 of them were selected.
          Interview Tips
          Its better to start with the preparation from before and do consider the previous year placement papers available at indiabix. You can practice more n more. Apart from this you can go through the r.s aggarwal aptitude book also.
          Round 2

          Group Discussion

          Group Discussion Topic
          Technology-a boon or bane
          Interview Experience
          There were many panels and each panel had 10-12 students. The H.r first decided some other topic but when he asked wether everybody is aware of the topic ..there were few who didn't know about it. .so he picked up another topic. Fortunately he asked me to start with the discussion.  Always try to be the one to break the ice.
          Interview Tips
          The only key to crack this round is that yku should talk. You should definitely not confuse gd with debate. You should not argue or by any chance shouldn't sound arrogant.
          Round 3

          Technical Interview

          Interview Questions
          • Question 1: tell me about your project
          • Question 2: write the idea or algorithm for d program of fibonacci series
          • Question 3: one question from your subject
          Interview Experience
          They will definitely ask about your project so be thorough with that. Ntt data is a Japanese company . Though this is IT but it will ask  from the subject of your own choice from people those who have a non IT background. After you get shortlisted in d gd they will give you a form to fill. Do fill that form without fail. If it is blank then even if u go to the hr round he will reject you.
          Interview Tips
          Just be confident and always smile. Be careful on what you write in your resume cuz they can ask about anything based on your resume.
          Round 4

          HR Interview

          • Question 3: do you have any question for me
          Interview Experience
          This round was a cake walk. Just be confident and updated about the company.  Do ask him a question if he asks you to do that.but make sure it shouldn't be vague or out of the picture.
          Interview Tips
          Keep smiling and don't get nervous.  If they ask you about location preferences,  dun get firm at one place.try to be flexible.

All the best
          Motivation for applying
          You will find the it companies mostly head quartered in U.S but this company is in Japan. Plus you have better opportunity and growth compared to other companies cuz its not a bulk recruiter.

          you have to count the number of occurences of that word in that matrix. you can move to any of the eight valid directions from current position.
          e.g. word="HELLO";
          matrix[][5]={ {'H','E','L','L','O'},
          {'E','H','E','A','B'},

Then the interviewer smiled and told me to proceed.

          Interview Experience
          Resume is the most important part of your whole placement process. Your resume reflects your whole profile, what you are. So, we had to do that properly. Main thing is the format of the resume. For getting the proper format itself we had to go through a lot, but our staffs do guide us so that's not a problem.
          Interview Tips
          Stick to the proper and latest format and make sure your resume shouldn't be more than 2 pages, that's ideal for a fresher. Write only those points that are valid and if any question asked related to that, you can answer.

My interview went for almost half an hour, but for few it got over even in 10-15 mins, so it depends.
