  4. Something else

Paper is not that difficult, you just need to chose ur strenth and answer those questions first. Each right answer + 1, wrong answer, 0.25. In our campus, persons who attempted 10 questions also got thru the written test. So the cut-off is very less.

Interview was very simple, some questions on C (test ur c skills is more than enough) and some questions on your area of interest. Some puzzles were also asked. But it is more like a mere formality. The interview panel was very co operative and it was a very good experience.
