Round 1 consisted of an online test with two coding questions. The test was of medium difficulty and consisted of technical and aptitude questions. It was hosted on CoCubes platform. Coding questions were of medium level. Time and accuracy is the key here.
Technical round was mainly focused on the projects and activities mentioned on the resume. Detailed background questions based on projects were asked. Questions on SQL, OOP and Algorithms were asked. The answers were expected to be as accurate as possible in one go. I was asked puzzles along with the above mentioned topics. Interviewers were interested in the thought process that went into solving the puzzles rather than achieving the correct answers.
The second round was Values round. Barclays focuses on 5 values abbreviated as RISES. Reading the website in detail will help clearing this round. Situations were given and interviewers were interested in knowing how would you navigate through those. Expect general questions on hobbies and family background.
Prepare very well with Data Structures, Algorithms and OOPs concepts. Be confident while answering the questions during interviews.
