                Test Sections
                • Section 1: Aptitude
                Interview Experience
                Microsoft aptitude was different from the rest I had written till then. They had come to hire for MSIT. So the
                questions mainly were on testing. We had to write test cases for many questions like registration form, computer
                game, quadratic function and so on. There were a couple of questions on C.
                Round 2

                Technical Interview

                Interview Questions
                  Interview Experience
                  They shortlisted 13 students after the aptitude paper. I had three rounds of interview. First two were purely
                  technical. Third i was asked few HR questions towards the end. C, C++ - pointers, dynamic allocation, multiple and
                  multi-level inheritance, Java basics, OOPS concepts. Since the profile was testing they quizzed me on DBMS normalization,asked me to write SQL queries, ER diagrams, cardinality, relations, joins. SE- different models like
                  iterative and spiral models, their advantages and disadvantages. I was asked to explain at length about my project
                  and my industrial training. General questions like what approach i take to debug the code i write were also asked.
                  Round 3

                  HR Interview

                  Interview Questions
                    Interview Experience
                    Why MS? What do you prefer- development or testing? Where do you see yourself five years from now? What do you
                    do if you are forced to work on something you are not interested in? Achievement you are proud of. Most
                    frustrating moment in your academic life and how did you tackle it? Any questions for us?
                    As the aptitude was totally different from what I had faced till then, I was a bit skeptical. But once the interview
                    started I felt pretty comfortable. It was a bit strenuous as I had all the three rounds continuously without a break
                    for about 3 hours. But it helped me remain focused. I had to wait for the result for too long but on the whole it was
                    an interesting experience.

                    Interview Questions
                      Interview Experience
                      Prepare from interview experiences on geeksforgeeks. Think about design questions also. Like I was asked how would you design an ATM for illiterate people in rural areas. You just have to answer this at an abstract level, like what features would you include.
                      Interview Tips
                      Microsoft always (and actually always) asks you to give test cases for you code.
                      So basically give inputs for which the code wouldn't work.
                      If nothing you can always give integer overflow, null pointer exceptions, arrays going out of bounds for certain inputs to give segmentation faults. Rest is very easy.

                        Two technical rounds were there. I round- First question was- tell me about yourself... They asked about my work what i did in my internship period. They gave different scenarios in my project work of internship and asked about its way of implementation. Since I worked in C#, they asked about delegates and interface difference. They asked about what is aggregation. They asked to write code using pointer to pointers and also for late binding. they asked some queries of DBMS and also advantage of stored procedures in that. OOPS concepts were asked. One algorithm was asked to find out missing no. from a stack if two given stacks have same numbers. Questions on normalisation were asked. Table was given to be normalised. II round- I was asked about my winter project. Algorithm was asked for finding angle between hour hand and minute hand. Designing Test case was also asked for same thing. Questions on Joins were asked.
