Interview:

I had 2 rounds of interview .first panel consisted of 3 ppl.it was a hr interview,no technical questions asked. . tell me somethinh abt urself. hobbies. why u want 2 get into software? wht are your personal goals in life. abt the project. extra curricular activities.

They just want to find out whether u are a team player ,a team leader.ur lernability,ur communication skills.i was not asked any puzzle.

I have tried to give u an idea of how the new pattern is. I want 2 reiterate what I said earlier ,just remember its not difficult just one needs 2 change ones mindset or else have a flexible one. dont expect  only puzzles . just be ready 2 face whatever u get and then u would be able to crack it.

ALL THE BEST.
