12 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Quants
  • Section 2: Verbal
  • Section 3: Logical
  • Section 4: Algorithm
  • Section 5: Situational Based
Interview Experience
I was from civil branch so had the above listed sections for pen paper written test. We had to attempt any 2 of the first 3 and last two were cumpolsory (Same for mechanical branch also). For CS, IT, ECE and EEE there were only 2 sections - first was programming - 5 questions and second was situational based.

All the three sections consisted 5 questions in each sections. Questions were very easy and hardly a pen was needed to solve. Quants section consisted of questions on binary to decimal, pipes and cistern and number system. Verbal section consisted of a passage followed by 5 questions and Logical section consisted of 5 simple sequence and series questions.
In 4 th section, we were asked to write an algorithm/flowchart for a given scenarion with some contraints - opening a bank account.
Last section was situational based questions. We were asked to exoress our views in maximum of 100 words on what we would do in a given situation.
Interview Tips
Skip vrbal part as there can be chance of getting wrong. Solve quants and logical as there would be 100% chance of being correct due to very easy questions.
In 4th section, draw flowchart/tree showing how you will proceed and what you think. Before proceeding further think like a layman person how he will fill the form and then decide how to write an algorithm so that even a layman can understand well how to proceed with that particular form. Show output screens, consider exceptions, find every possible combinations for the various options given in the problem.
For last question, try to be practical, brief, concise and to the point. Don't write anything in round about manner.
Above all, as this is pen paper test, write in a beautiful hand writting.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: SQL Querry
  • Question 2: Programming
  • Question 3: Projects
Interview Experience
The technical interview was easy. The questions were straingh forward. Questions were based on projects that I had done. I had Informatics Practices (Java) in class 12 so I told interviewer about database management. I was asked to explain tables used in project and a SQL Querry which I failed to answer.
Then she asked me to write a program to determine which offer is better to invest if in one interest rate increases by 2 each year and the one in which it increases by 1. I quickly wrote it. She said to improve the DBMS part and applauded for the programming skills.
Interview Tips
Be confident and true. They ask only what you say about yourself. Prepare well for SQL querries as they focus more on SQL. Also practice programming as one queston will be essentially on it. Don't try to learn all languages. Know only one but know well. For civil students, have one project that involves programming. Try to learn MATLAB programming during B.Tech. It will make a good impact.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Project
  • Question 2: HR Questions
Interview Experience
The HR round was very easy. HR was very friendly. I was asked to introduce myself and then he asked me to explain about my project which I had done in MATLAB. He then asked HR questions like why I wanted to join software industry, where I see myslef in 5 years, previous interview experiences.
Interview Tips
Be cool and confident. If you made till HR round, the probability of being selected in 90%. For civil students, try to be familiar with programming languages and SQL. Also try to have some extra skills that make you different from others. Don't think civil engineers only build buildings and roads; there is a lot more for us to do. Its always good to stand away from crowd.
All the best!

For civil and mechanical students, if you has C++ or Informatics Practices in class 12, be in touch with that knowledge. They test only basics. Familiarize yourself with OOPS and SQL querries. <br /> Be confident with what you speak and speak in clear voice. If you don't know simply say no. Must attent the interview with a good explanations of questions asked about your weak skills.

Courses
  • MATLAB,
General Tips
Have good command on basics of what learnt C++ or Java and MySQL in class 12. Try to have a project using any programming skill if you are from non CS/IT background as it will help you prove you interest in programming despite your branch. Knowing foreign language atleast till intermediate level will add stars to your extra skills.
Motivation for applying
Interest in programming.
Funny Moments
When HR asked where I see myself in 5 years I said that I see myself in Europe. To which he said that he is hiring for India and when I said that I am hired for India right now but not for 5 years. He smiled with the answer and wished me all the best.

      Interview Experience
      After the test only 5 students were shortlisted for interview. Interview for each candidate began with a technical round where they asked us to pick one programming language we are comfortable with. I picked C++. They asked me very basic concepts example Function overloading, Operator overloading, 2-D array concepts other OOP concepts.

        Interview Experience
        It went very smooth for me. They asked me what I know about the company. Though i couldn't remembered much I told them two points and then smiled. Then they asked me to tell me about myself and our NITK campus. I answered that aptly. Then they started asking serious questions i.e. if I want to go for higher studies, why am I not joining ARMY (I told them my father is in armed forces). Then they asked me if I want to work in Chennai or Bangalore, I told them Bangalore and also the reason behind it. After that, it was a casual interaction and I became quite sure about my selection.

        Skill Tips
        Though there are huge resources of materials lying online and market, don’t run in all directions. Choose one book and an online source and start preparing it.<br /> In my case I studied Sumita Arora for C++ and it proved to be quite beneficial for me. Also solve aptitude questions for programming available online like indiabix.com. It provides a lot of help in understanding and applying your concepts and also for time limit.<br /> For aptitude question the best book available is "Quantitative aptitude by Arun Sharma".<br /> For C++ language focus mainly on OOPS concepts, its features and basic building blocks like arrays, pointers etc.<br />
        General Tips
        I think one thing which matters the most is your self-confidence. Hard-work and dedication are very important of-course but it is your confidence that separates you from other individuals. Also for most of the interviews they do not ask very big concepts, they will assess you on basic concepts, how much you know about the subject. So, be it any language, have your basic concept clear first and while giving interviews speak confidently.

        This was my first campus interview I got selected and I cleared it. So yes, I was in a little shock and surprise to clear the interview.

        Also one thing I forgot to mention was that the pointer cut-off for this company was 7.5 while I had only 7.11. Still I got selected. It does not matters much how much pointer you have. What matters at last is how much thorough you are with the subject. Well till morning I was not even sure if I am sitting for this company and by I got placed.
