There was no written round for IIT Delhi.

Interview Round:
My panel was of 3 professors. They asked the following questions:
1. GATE Score, UG Percentage, B.Tech Project
2. What is speedup in COA? They asked me to derive the expression for it.
3. There is a semi infinite array of 1's,2's,3's in the non descending order. How will you find the first occurrence of 3 and mid of 2's in best possible way.
4. Question on page table size, inverted page table.
5. They asked me to derive the expression for the performance of random quick sort.
6. Last question was based on different addressing modes.

The interview questions were purely based on the panels. Some panels were asking so much of mathematics whereas some of them were asking pure algorithms. I felt my panel was asking questions mostly on computer architecture and algorithms.

For the final selection, GATE score will have 70% weightage, and the interview will have 30% weightage.
