Barclays India was offering BA3 Roles with a package of 12 LPA at their Pune and Chennai branch.

Eligibility Criteria: CS & IT students from Final year, with ≥ 60% score across class X, XII and Engineering Semesters.

Round 1(MCQ (Technical) + Coding): Easy & Medium (28/07/2022)

MCQ questions covering topics like:

  • Java
  • C
  • C++
  • SQL
  • DBMS
  • Java Spring boot
  • OOP

Coding Questions:

  1. To check whether an array can be made strictly increasing by modifying only one element output should be in the format of yes or no (20 Marks) 
  2. To find the maximum number of divisors that can be possible store it in a tree format and find the length of the tree.  (50 Marks)

I was able to solve both coding questions partially like in the 20 marks section my code passed 6/10 test cases and in the 50 marks section it passed 6/11 test cases, and in the MCQs section, except for Java Spring boot-related questions I was confident about other questions.

86 students gave the above round, and a total of 4 students got shortlisted, 3 (1 Girl, 2 Boys) from the CS branch and 1 boy from the IT branch. I was one of them. My interview was scheduled for 09/08/2022 at around 01.30 pm. 

Round 2(Interview): 09/08/2022

  • My Interview went on for around 55 minutes. It started with a greetings exchange and with an introduction about myself. Based on my introduction I was asked about my internship and the projects in depth right from the functionalities to the tech stack used. A lot of time was spent on this discussion.
  • Later I was asked simple questions on Object Oriented Programming like what is Polymorphism, Encapsulation, and Abstraction. I explained each concept with an example.
  • Later I was asked questions based on java programming, software testing, and logic and BTW I was asked simple math formulae like a sum of 1 to n numbers.
  • Then I was asked if I had any questions for her, and I asked questions about various tech domains in Barclays, projects she has worked on, etc.
  • No Other HR kind Questions were asked during the interview. ( It depends on the interviewee as well whether he/she wants to ask or not.)

Overall it was a great experience as I had never given an Interview almost 1 hour long. It actually depends on the interviewee sometimes it may go this long or sometimes it may get over within 15-20 mins like my JIO Interview. 

The results came out the next day, 3 students (1 Girl, 2 Boy) were selected and I was one of them. It was really a pleasure to hear that I have finally been placed at such a good company all thanks to God!!! , and felt like all my grind and all the rejections that I faced over the past few months were finally answered. 


  • Practice technical aptitude well ( It will also help you during your Interview as few questions are asked based on it) .
  • Prepare your Introduction well as it makes your first impression and can make or break your interview.
  • Include Internships and projects that you know in & out ( A lot of questions are asked on these).
  • Browse the Barclays website and know about their work.
