Round II : Interview.
There were many interviewers.
Some were asking about your project, latest IT trends, C/C++ programs, Puzzles,Simple Linked list programs, Normalisation and forms.
I had a very simple interview. I was very confident and smiling without any fear.
He asked me to give my intro. I spoke about myself, my areas of interest and my project.
Then he asked me to write an algorithm to sort an array in descending order and also remove duplicates from it.
He asked me to explain Encapsulation.
How many normal forms are there? What is BCNF? What is Big Data?
We had interaction on a questions. That I asked him for about 5-7 mins.
Overall it was a good experience. You are not required to answer every questions correctly. You may not even answer, if you are not aware of it and simply say Sir, I can't recall it right now.
But, be confident and be sure that what you answer is 100% correct.
Finally on 17 October 2014, We got our results at midnight and I was selected.
Prepare well. All the best. I hope this one will be helpful to you.
