Technical Interview

Interview Experience

Since I cracked the first round of Codevita (a programming contest held by TCS), I didn't had to appear for this round and was directly promoted for the next round ie. Technical Interview.

Technical Interview

Interview Experience

There were two interviewers, one I prepared very well for the introduction​ part. But something different was awaiting to happen. As I started with telling my name the interviewer interrupted me and asked from where I was. I was going to tell that after telling my name but don't know why he interrupted. After answering that he said carry on and again when I was going to tell next, he again interrupted me and asked from which college you are. And coincidently I was going to tell that only. And like this he interrupted me before my each and every line of my introduction. It made me more nervous coz I didn't knew what he was trying to examine by interrupting me. After completing the introduction my teaching round started. First they asked about what project I did in vocational training. So I mentioned and then what was my role in that project. As I did the whole project myself so it was not that difficult for me to explain and the interviewer gave me a pen and paper to draw the E-R diagram from my project. After drawing he asked me different relations from that diagram and also some database queries. I am not that good in database but somehow I managed and then he asked me about joins. I got stuck there and the interviewer was really cheering and helpful coz he gave me some options so that I can tell. But my answer was wrong. So next he moved to Java and started asking about the OOPs concept. So now that's where I was little good and I answered all his questions with some short code examples. He then gave me to write one code explaining dynamic polymorphism. I wrote but there was a little mistake. But the way he encouraged me really helped me boosting my confidence. He said smilingly -"after telling everything correctly why you had to make it wrong". Then he said the other interviewer that he was done with his questions and asked him whether he have anything to ask me. So the other interviewer asked me some question from C programs and said he was also done. Then when was going to leave the other interviewer told me to go home and study DBMS properly. At that moment the advice was like a rejection to me and I got very tensed hearing that. So all total my interview round went for about 45 mins.

Written Aptitude Test

Experience

The written test is divided into two parts 1- Written English (10 mins) 2- Aptitude (30 mins). The first part of the test is aimed at evaluating the candidates' English writing abilities. A set of words and phrases are given, all of which must be used to draft an email based on the given topic. The second part contains simple maths questions based on geometry, mass & volume, permutation & combinations, speed-distance-time, etc.
However, the pattern is expected to change this year on wards and it might include technical questions as well (which were earlier not a part of the written test)

MR

Experience

They will ask general questions about you, hobbies, strengths and weaknesses. basically they try to gauge a person's character, honesty and other traits.
