 My Experience:-

  • Since, This was my first interview I was bit nervous in the Interview but even though I managed to give my best. The Introduction was very fine where the interviewer got first impression on me. And my project explanation was also very good but I am not able to explain him about the challenges in my project that was a 1st drawback. And the rest of the answers were very impressive to him. But I am not good in Operating Systems, So I was not able to answer the Deadlock Condition question that was an 2nd drawback. 
  • But the Interviewer is very Time minded and very precise on the topics in Resume. He has around 14 years experience in Barclay. So be thorough and honest with whatever topics their in your resume.

Results: Finally, the results were declared after 4 days of conducting interview. But I have not selected for Barclay. They have hired around 31 people. Since, this was my First Interview I was Procrastinating and nervous in the interview.


  • Be thorough and precise with your resume topics.
  • Be confident in an interview.
  • Be prepared for “Introduction” as first impression makes matter.
  • Make sure to know about the company.
  • Try to ask a question at the end to the interviewer.
