Arun Khanduja’s Standard Chartered Bank Interview Experience

“Arun Khanduja” who was placed at “Standard Chartered Banktalks about his interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what he says about the placement season.

His Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Karan Madan”

Branch and Graduation Year: ENC – 2021

Profile Offered: Software developer

Job Location: Starts in June, 2021. Location: Can’t say.

CGPA Cutoff: 8.0

Here are the questions we asked from Arun Khanduja to know about his interview experience.

Question 1:Introduce yourself to the readers.

Answer: I’m currntly in 4th year in Thapar with ENC. Coming to my background, I have done internships in my 1st year at TCIL and 2nd year at NIC. In 3rd year, I secured an on campus internship at Standard Chartered Bank after which I was given a PPO. So, that’s me.

Question 2:Describe your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round and type of test platform ( If online mention the type of test platform eg. Hackereart, CoCubes, Amcat etc).

Answer: This was the first time when Standard Chartered came to Thapar. There were basically 3 interview levels. The first level included 2 tests. The first screening criteria was a Psychometric test. We are given puzzles, where your mind is triggered, some questions requires memory, some are find the difference types.
Second round was an aptitude test in which we were given a lot of data in the form of tables and we had to analyze it and answer the questions based on them.
This happened on the same day.

After 3-4 days, the company revisited. This was the 2nd level now – which was a GD. 10 students at a time. The situation was the bank was thinking of giving a loan to a company and we were given the data about the company and the catch there was 2 different sets of data, one which highlighted the good things about the company and other set highlighted the bad things. Nobody had the complete information, so there was a lot of cooperation, listening to others also required. We were given 5 mins for preparation and GD was of 20 mins. Three panalists were there to judge us. 120 students appeared in the GD and 30 were short listed.

Question 3:Describe your all technical interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round (if any)(please share coding questions if possible).

Answer: The third level was a technical interview. Mostly CV based. So, whatever I had on my CV about the internships, projects.. They were asking questions about.
At that time, I had 2 internships in my hand, TCIL one was on networking and NIC one was of front end developer using angular. I was asked about my experiences, what did I learn and all. I did 2 hardware projects – One was line follower project where the bot had to follow a path from Engineering Design 2. The other one was a ball tracker with Open Cv and python.

So, One thing a student should keep in mind is, know everything about what you write in the CV because they will ask a lot of questions. At the end they asked me some easy programming questuions, like printing a sequence, reversing a string. It lasted for 45 mins
Out of the 30 students who appeared in the interview, they hired 10 interns.

Question 4:Key factors for your selection.

Answer: The first thing is please maintain a decent CG. That’s the first thing the recruiters look at before getting into anything else. My GPA was 7.5 at the time, I would recommend to keep it above 8. The things that helped me stand out was that I had some industrial experience. I knew I’m not doing great academically so, I covered it us with industrial experience. Both the internships were summer interns. You basically have to sell yourself when you are applying for any internship or a job. I did have some good projects under my belt. I was involved with IETE and another technical society for electronics. I had many side projects, sort of like a hobby. When the interviewer is askign questions, there’s no right or wrong the thing that matters is the way you speak about your projects, how much dedication you put into it and how well you know about your own project. Even if you have a basic project, make sure you know each and every aspect of it. At the time I had very little software knowledge but whatever I did, I did will full dedication and I think that was what the interviewer wanted to see. So, he knew that If this guy is given a project which is out of his domain, he will somehow get the job done.

Question 5:Advice to juniors for technical skills they should develop.

Answer: One thing is GPA – Keep it above 8.
Engage yourself in any sort of programming if you want a technical job. Be it any language, any domain. May it be Python, Data science, app development, competitive programming.. Just pick up anything. Start early. Pick up a programming website like HackerRank, HackerEarth or something to get some exposure.

Question 6:According to you, what role does extra curricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: Yes, they do. People think societies are a waste of time, but I disagree. I believe societies help you develp soft skills, you learn how to talk and maintain respect for everyone may it be junior or senior. Societies play a big role in your overall development. If you are in a society to improve yourself not just for the tag of it, you will do great in the HR round when you are asked about the Postion of responsibilites. Societies play a bigger role. You get to network, which is very imp.

Question 7:Any other advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: If any junior has any querry, any doubts, feel free to ping me up on LinkedIn or any social media.

Question 8:Your Instagram handle (we will tag you when we post your interview experience).

Answer: The written test was of 3 hours. Due to some technical issues, the test automatically got cancelled and thus it was just of 2 hours only. Therefore, the test was again conducted, so overall, the test was of 5 hours. It was conducted on Interview Bit and the students were required to solve 6 questions in 3 hours. For getting shortlisted for the interview, a student must solve atleast 4 questions out of the 6 questions. Every topic was covered in the test.

Question 3:Key factors for your selection.

Answer: For the technical round, projects helped a lot in clearing the round. For the HR round, good communication skills helped a lot in clearing the round.

Question 4:What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Basic DSA is a must and one must not lie on the resume because the interviewer will get to know very easily about the lie. One must be very confident about his resume and must have knowledge about all the things mentioned in that. Students should also focus on in doing good projects because they help a lot in cracking the interviews.

Question 5:Advice to juniors for technical skills they should develop.

Answer: Students should not worry much for the technical skills in their first and second years. They should start working upon their technical skills in the summer break of second year or in the starting of their third year (invest time for doing coding daily for half an hour). The main focus should be on DS and Algorithms and try to work on some good projects because through that you get to learn a lot of new things and you develop your skills. One must not get pressurized seeing his peers doing coding in their first years because atleast first year is there to enjoy your college life. If you start coding in your first year, definitely you will get advantage but even if you don’t start, there’s nothing to worry, you can start it afterwards also. Students should also participate in Hackathons because they help a lot in developing the technical skills and moreover you get to know people from other colleges too so it develops your network and you know what other students are doing to develop their various skills.

Question 6:According to you, what role does extra curricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: Extra curricular activities play a very important role in developing one’s communication skills and in turn helps to crack the HR round with ease. Being a part of Thapar Food Festival helped me a lot in developing my communication skills because you get to know how to communicate with people. Being a part of societies helps to develop the overall personality of an individual because you get a chance to make friends and also get a chance to interact with your seniors. The only thing to be kept in mind is that students should not get burdened by joining societies and being a part of societies should not affect their academics. By joining societies, one also learns to manage time between academics and extra curricular activities and so instead of sitting idle, one can invest time in being a member of the societies of their interest.

Question 7:What would you like to advise juniors for cracking HR round of this company?

Answer: For cracking the HR round, one must have good communication skills.

Question 8:Any other advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: Don’t prepare everything just for placement. Don’t do everything for the sake of placements only but to expand your knowledge and to learn new things. Don’t be much placement oriented and lose your confidence, one must enjoy his college life obviously.

Question 9:Your Phone Number (Only if you want to help your juniors on call).
