Technical queries on the subject were put forth and I was able to answer a few of them confidently. Next halt was the GD round which was really interesting, here I was given a current scenario and was expected to imagine myself in that situation and answer accordingly. Other one was challenging. Three of the applicants were given ongoing news (current affairs) and we had a space to give our opinion and views on it and discuss it. In this we even had freedom to challenge each other and question their opinions to prove our own statements as right one. Last round was an aptitude exam and it was filled with questions from Maths and English, it was undoubtedly a tricky one, most of them looked complicated but were simple, some of them really needed a sharp mind. Time limit was given so I had to be quicker in understanding and solving them as fast as possible. Overall experience in the interview and selection process was fascinating.
