          Duration

          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 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 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.

          Two things- preparation and confidence. Be well prepared with your c,c++ basics and your subjects and have confidence in your preparation. Keep a cool head you can crack the interview pretty easily. Feel free to ask them questions when they give you the opportunity. Good luck!

          1> a matrix is given, each cell is black or white. You have to find no. of objects. An object is defined by a spread of similar coloured boxes in 8 neighbourhood. ex. (4x6 matrix) 100001 011101 101001 000001 has 3 objects 2 1-type object. 1 0-type object.
          2> linked list represents number, add two numbers.
          3> 2 linked list has sorted numbers, merge using only pointer manipulation. No extra node should be created.
          4> Project.
          5> Check for a tree being a subtree of another.
          6> find out least common ancestor from a tree. parent pointer is not available.
          7> innovate on alarm clock.
          8> normalize a number: 123.4567, 2 => 1.23 * 10^2. there is catch, can you see?
          9> given a matrix, you need to traverse the boxes in 4 neighbourhood. boxes are marked as 0,1 or 2 saying 0 cost, 1 cost and death. find whether it is possible to reach from (i,j) to (p,q). If so find min cost
          Round 4

          Technical Interview

          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.

          Interview Experience
          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.
          Round 3
