I was interviewed on-campus
at IIT Madras for
Samsung Electronics India Software Operations
Test Group Discussion
- Section 1: Online, Aptitude
- Section 2: Online, Coding
Three sections in aptitude - English, Analytical, Quantitative. English was mostly correct the grammar in the sentences or comprehension passage types. Analytical and quant also were straightforward questions.
Three simple coding questions. C/C++/Java. Nothing new if you have done a coding course like CS1100 or before IIT.
Be quick in answering english, you have to give more time to quantitative questions.
For coding, revise pointers properly. Also revise how to efficiently carry out string operations without the string libraries.
Group Discussion Topic

No one on one interview process. So if you cup badly in interviews, this may be your way out. But if the GD becomes a structured one then you are out of luck. Sorry!
