Interview Experience
The technical interview lasted for 20-30 minutes. At first, I was asked to speak something about myself. Then the interviewer asked me which are my favourite core eng. subjects followed by the technical questions. Also, this is not an elimination round, which means that you will be allowed to sit for the next round irrespective of how you have performed.

It is not important to answer all the questions correctly (hardly anyone can) but answering confidently is important. If you do not know the answer to a question, don't get stuck on it, gently accept and proceed to the next question.

Duration
1 Hours
Interview Experience
Top 30 people from civil engineering branch were selected for the aptitude round, which consisted of 40 questions of aptitude/maths and 40 questions of english to be answered in 1 hour.
Interview Tips
Since I'm quite fluent in English, I dedicated 45 mins in maths and 15 minutes in English. Be sure to clear sectional cutoffs and not being stuck in a single section (this is a very vital point to be taken care of). Questions were easy and anyone preparing for CAT or even referring to India bix, the test will be a cake-walk.
Round 2

  • Question 1: What is concrete mix?

  • Question 3: Give an overview to design a building including earthquake resistant characteristics?
  • Question 4: Difference between end bearing pile and friction pile?
  • Question 5: Draw a cross-section of a road indicating its various components? (Since my project was road/transportation based)
  • Question 6: What is curing? FOQ (Follow up question): Will curing be required in the North pole also?
  • Question 7: Length of a single lane road and a double lane road? (Again project related)
  • Question 8: Difference between 1 way slab and 2 way slab, what type of slab does this room have?
Interview Experience
The questions were quite basic. The HR round consisted of the interviewer pouncing question after question about my hobby (quizzing), I guess more questions of general knowledge asked than technical questions. He asked if I was ready to relocate anywhere in India or not?
Interview Tips
Just keep confidence, If you have certificates (specially of sporting events) do bring them along. Have a high CGPA, because L&T usually hires toppers. (I wasn't one of them though)

Interview Tips
For aptitude practice R S Aggarwal thoroughly. since in aptitude you have to answer 1 question every min so speed and precision is the key and that requires a lot of practice.  Wile practicing aptitude questions it is always helpful if you take help of a stop watch so that you can have a track of time you are consuming in solving a particular type of question and hence you can optimize on that for eg: you may require less time in solving questions related to a some topic and more time on other. Thus you will have an idea as to questions from which topic is to be attempted first and which has to be left for last. Your target should be to have more than 35 questions correct at all cost then you have a good chance of getting selected.
