Q1. Could you please walk us through the entire procedure of your internship process at Samsung? An insight into the company’s short listing procedure would be really helpful.

The eligibility criteria for Samsung R&D Bangalore was 65% and no backlogs. It was open for COE, IT and ECE students. There were 2 profiles : Hardware and Software. The whole procedure consisted of basically 3 rounds. 
First round was Aptitude test.It consisted of an online test which consisted of total 60 MCQ questions categorized into Logical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative ability. Total time was 90 minutes.

Second round was Coding Round. For software profile, there were 3 coding questions to be solved in 90 minutes time span. The coding questions were quite easy,  testing only the basic knowledge of trees, arrays, sorting and searching.
