This was my first interview experience which helped me to find the way ahead. I will add more to this list.
This is the experience of mine at IISc Bangalore for SERC (Supercomputer Education and Research Centre). I got a call from IISc Bangalore for SERC. They shortlisted the candidates based on the GATE rank.
You can also check the possibility of the call for your GATE score. Refer Ranking-wise College Preference through GATE Colleges Cutoff.
I am writing all the IISc Bangalore interview questions as I remember.
Firstly, there was a written test. They were having two batches per day with around 50 people each. They shortlisted around 12 from my batch for the second round of interview.
The written test consists of total 8 questions. We were asked to solve exactly 5 out of those.
And they told that if someone solves more than 5 they will consider the questions with least marks.
Questions were basically from programming logic (Two for loop condition and filling questions were there).
For coding practice, try to solve common coding questions.
They asked for two subjects I would like to be interviewed and also particular topics in that. I answered “Operating System and DBMS”.
If you are choosing DBMS and Operating as your subject for an interview, apart from the above questions, check these important topics.
Make sure to highlight that you are much more interested in research. And if possible show your interest in an academic career as well.
Hope IISc Bangalore interview questions and written test will help you. If you need any help or if you have any further questions, feel free to ask in the comment below.
Thanks and Regards,
