Overall the level of the paper is moderate. Only those candidates who clear the written exam will qualify for the next round. Next day we were having our interview round. During pre-placement talk they told us that the interview will not be technical at all and they will give us a topic on which we will have to speak and also that they will be conducting group interview of 5 candidates in one group. So came the interview day. In our panel, we had 2 people one technical and one HR.
First, they asked us to introduce ourselves one by one in which they questioned on our introduction. HR asked us to talk about any topic currently in news. All of us spoke for 1 minute each. Next, we were asked to speak about our projects and based on that questions were asked. I had done DBMS project and hence questions were asked from that. All the 5 of us were selected.
Tip: Just be thorough with whatever project you have done and if asked favorite subject talk about any subject you know thoroughly. Just be confident and updated about the current issues.
Everything is really easy. Just be cool, calm and confident and your work will be done.
