Ques. Introduce yourself to the readers
I, Swapnil Kumar Singh, am a student of Computer Science & Engineering at Thapar Institute Of Engineering & Technology. I feel proud and blessed to say that I was selected as an intern and FTE at the same time at Mckinsey.
Ques. What was the difficulty level of the interview? (1- very easy, 10-very difficult)
I would rate it around 7.
Ques. What was the procedure of the placement that took place? (Shortlisting criteria/ coding or aptitude test/ number of interviews)
If I have to describe the procedure of my placement then there were two rounds mainly, apart from the online assessment round. The online assessment was easy to crack, but the next level with Code pair round was more towards the harder side. it was followed by two rounds of interviews- 1. First round was purely technical in which they asked for details of the projects done by me on the animation side based on my resume.
2. Round 2 also commenced with questions related to the projects I mentioned in my CV followed by questions about the workshops attended by me as well as the other achievements which I mentioned or highlighted in my CV. Both rounds were of 40 minutes each, and in the second round, after 25 minutes of technical questioning, they switched to the HR round and thus, no separate HR round was conducted.
Ques. Tell us about the written/online test. (Aptitude, Coding, Test Platform, etc)
I had to give both the online as well as offline test for Mckinsey. The Online assessment was very easy to crack as one can easily get the solution from the internet but knowing the fact that plagiarism plays a major role and that help becomes useless if your code gets plagiarized so, I gave my level best to try and crack it and finally, I managed to do so. Next was code pair round of DSA problems where the difficulty level ranged from medium to hard and more on harder side in my case as one is judged on the basis of how he/she explains their approach to the respective mentor present in the room. If you are not able to get all the test cases passed then do not lose hope at all, try again and again, and once you are done, then you can get them assessed by the mentor.
