My interview experience was exactly opposite to what I thought before. I thought that because of my good cgpa they will definitely ask technical question but they haven’t ask any technical question from my domain as well as programming. So they will always surprise you. This was my interview experience which I faced on campus placement taken by WIPRO technologies at ITM University Gwalior.
There were four rounds:
1. Group Discussion
2. Written: In written aptitude logical and verbal were asked. To crack this R.S. Agarwal is Sufficient
3. Technical Interview
4. HR Interview
900 students has appeared out of which 70 students were in the topper list(means they directly go for Interview round), 200 students were rejected in Group discussion. Remaining 700 has appeared for written test out of which 88 students were cleared the test (mass elimination in written only).
I was shortlisted for the technical interview. I knock the door and said…

Interview Tips: Be confident in interview . They only check your communication skill, learning ability and how much you are confident. For programming let us c is sufficient. Don’t preassume anything. They judge the student and ask those things which you are not expecting like i was expecting some technical questions but they haven’t ask.They can ask anything from you.Always try to move the interviewer towards your strength and skill so that you can answer the question efficiently. Show them that you are very much interested in the company. Good luck.
