A basic knowledge of the English Language is the key to succeed in this test. 

CTS next section was Technical Round

Technical Interview: 

After clearing the written test I had technical round. Everyone had different experiences in their respective technical interview. Some had a mixture of HR and Technical. Some had purely technical.

I had a purely 35-mins technical round from the subjects of Computer Science, my branch being the same. 

My interviewer asked me the subjects I was comfortable in. I said OS and DBMS but then too he asked me questions from almost all important subjects he could come across!! 

One answer of mine became his next question which was many-a-times difficult to handle. Be very careful to be thorough with your CV.

His first question was- 
Why did you choose engineering? 

What is the use of any mechanical instrument in a computer system? 

Computer Networks- Virtual Subnet, rings, tokens, buses, OSI model’s layers with diagram, context switching, packet switching, dirty read DBMS- Insert/update/delete anomalies, normalization and its all forms, outer join query Software Engineering

Difference between spiral and prototype model, all phases of SDLC, which model is suited for which type of projects, are all phases the same for all models? 
Give their practical examples Java- He asked me to draw the flowchart of an already written java code on the board. That code had 2 FOR loops to enter different values in an array. 
it is very important to LEARN your CV!!! He asked me how much I know about the company. This can be asked by anyone because it is the most obvious question.

Overall I can say that it was indeed a good experience

HR interview: 


My HR Round was only of 5 minutes in which he asked me some basic questions like- 
Introduce yourself Are you willing to relocate? 
Are you fine with cities in Southern India? 
Have you ever traveled out without your parents? 
Working of MAD (Make A Difference)…. My CV said I am a MAD volunteer.

Suggestion & tips: 
Just be confident , give your best and keep smiling
