Hello Everyone,

I am S.Srinivas, Computer Science and Engineering student at RGM college of Engineering(RGIT), Nandyal.

Recently I have attended a of campus drive conducted by VIRTUSA at CMR group of institutions, Hyderabad.

Now I would like to share my experience with you, which I had during the interview.

The Interview process is started at 9:00 am with the introduction of recruitment team. The interview process consists of four rounds. The recruitment done by VIRTUSA is only for CSE & IT students.

Written Test :

The written test is for 40 questions followed by a java program. we have to take the exam in online. All the questions are related to Technical topics means core topics. It does not contain any aptitude or reasoning questions. The questions are mainly based on JAVA, DBMS & SOFTWARE TESTING. Most of the questions are given from JAVA.

So, one must be through with all the java concepts because it also helps a lot during interview because VIRTUSA interviews are done mainly on JAVA. Coming to DBMS, the questions are related to SQL queries. Some bits are from Data Structures like stacks and queues. There is a less focus on software testing, but basics should be clear and we have to know about types of testing and by whom the testing\'s are done in real world. The time given for these 40 questions is 40 minutes.

The test is followed by one program, we have to write the code for the given program only in java also have to pass the test cases given and the time given is half an hour. The program is not much harder. The programs are mainly asked on Sorting,Strings and Arrays. Partial codes are also considered. So, better try to attempt the logic at-least. Time is not a matter in VIRTUSA written test. There is a enough time.
