Written Test

It was an online MCQ test. Time limit was one hour. There were around 55 question. It consists of three sections:
1) Aptitude Questions
Pretty simple.

2) Programming ability :
Patience is required to solve the questions. They were easy. Most of them had 3 to 4 nested loops.

3) Third section had questions from OS, CA, C++, DBMS. Most of them were from OS.


Technical PI (around 1.5 hr):

There was only one Technical Round
