    Interview Experience
    We had our written test on the 18th of November and I was exempted from the Analytical Ability round as I was one of the academic toppers. I had only VA round where I was asked to write and email about grandfather’s illness. It was very easy and the constraint was, to write a minimum of 50 words. I ended it up with 77 words. We got our results after a week(25th Nov) and around 500+ students attempted the exam out of which 178 cleared the written.
    Round 2

    Other Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
    • Question 2: What is your mother?
    • Question 3: What is your father?
    • Question 4: Any plans for higher studies?
    Interview Experience
    We had our PIs on 27th and 28th of November and I had my PI on 28th. Some panels had both TR and HR simultaneously and some had two different rounds. I was in Panel 5 where I had to face two rounds. First was the TR, where there were 3 members and then HR with just one member.

    I was called in the evening around 4:00pm and I entered and wished them and I gave my résumé and I was offered to sit. They asked my name. Then I told about my academic details and the reason for me to choose IT as my stream (again they got impressed by my reason). Then I started to say about my projects , then I was stopped and I was asked about the idea of the project and everything. I started explaining about my project (cause I was waiting for that moment), my team and the reason to do the project, who gave the requirements and how we started and all. I took some screen shots of my project (thanks to Ritwick for the suggestion) and I asked whether I could show them for which they accepted. Then I started to explain my project with my screen shots and they really got impressed. They asked whether my 2 projects are being implemented or not, for which I answered “one of that is being implemented”. They wanted to see it, but the unfortunate thing was, our college’s CSE department’s server was put down due to which I was unable to show(cause the project is an Intranet portal). Then at last I was asked a few questions about my project’s team, how did we share our work etcetera.

    After 5 minutes I was called for HR and the funniest part is, I was asked a couple of Technical questions in the HR
    I was called and she offered me to take a seat. She asked my name and asked, what is a NULL pointer and what is hashing. I answered them and then again regular questions . What is your mother? What is your father? Any siblings? I told about my sister who woks with the TCSL. She asked a couple of questions about her by opening her profile (Is she in her project or not? when did she join? which college?etcetera )
    Then she saw my résumé and asked me about my passion and about my percentage in 10th (I got 69.2 in 10th and 81 in BTECH). I explained the reason then I was asked, Any plans for higher studies? Relocatable? and then If you are into the TCSL Hyderabad, then where would your mother stay? Then, what did your sister suggest for this Interview? about my CET rank and that’s it. I was asked to leave!!
    General Tips
    If you have project and you are pretty confident about it, then try to pull your discussion towards it. Then you can handle your PI.

    Be confident and radiant. They will check how much you've had to wait and how that has affected you. Don't lose hope. And don't give textbook answers to questions like strengths and weaknesses. Being frank really helps.

      Interview Tips
