Details of types of questions asked in each of the sections:
Hi everyone i was fortunate eneough to get a ppo from ibm so the process i am describing had taken place at the
time of nternship.
There was a section on data interpretation which was for 15 minutes or so and was only to test hw fast u cud grasp
a new thing. Then there was a section on number series which was fairly simple followed with one on quantitative
maths. All of these were part of the first round of written test out of which around 100 people were shortlisted.
The second round was technial again having 2 sections the first one being basically for-loops and flowcharts,
questions were time consuming and there was always a shorter method. second section involved concepts of
and operating system.
After this round 38 people were shortlisted for interview.

Technical Interview

This interview mostly consisted of opertaing systems, data structure and c. He first took a brief intro and after
that asked me the subject which i was best at.I would advice you to say anything except operating system because
made that mistake and he went so deep that the only thing i could do was comprehend the question because
solving it
was way beyond me(the question was involving system threads). Anyways i could still answer some of the
questions in
operating system like how to generate file descriptors in the best possible manner, then an output of a code was
asked which involved concepts of heap,stack and pointers. Then he moved to data structure where he asked one
question regarding k nearest neighbours and we had a lengthy discussion on this one. There might be other
which i am unable to recall currently.

HR Interview



I would just like to advice that these people are not looking for answers but the path you choose, basically your
approach. so whatever you think speak allowed and let them know your approach thats because if your thinking on
wrong lines then they will correct you and hint towards the right one. So make use of them... best of luck

No. of Candidate applied And Points that Worked in Favour

I had a really nice experience especially the interview because it was more of a discussion rather then then
question and answers. The person who took my interview later told me that he himself did'nt know the answer to
question and what he was interested in was my approach. The interview lasted for 2 hours and besides being
exhausting it was fun too.
