Royal Bank of Scotland Interview Process


I applied at Royal Bank of Scotland for the post of Software Engineer through a staffing agency. The process took one day and I was interviewed at Royal Bank of Scotland. There were a total of six rounds in the hiring process at Royal Bank of Scotland.

Round 1 - - Online Written Test
The first step in the process was an online test which contained technical questions. The interview was scheduled by the consultancy. The test was not difficult and I was able to complete it without any problem.

Round 2 - First Technical Round
After I cleared the online test, I was called on site for the technical round. In this round, I was majorly asked questions concentrating on Core Java, Struts, SQL, Servlets and Jsp's. The questions were moderately difficult and thus you must have a good knowledge of concepts.
Q1. What is ActionServlet?
Q2. What is sub-query? Explain its properties.

Round 3 - Second Technical Round
In this interview, there were two interviewers. But they took interviews one by one and thus it was nothing exceptional except the fact that each of the interview was concentrated on a particular area. The first interviewer asked questions based on SQL while the second one asked questions about Java. The questions were again average in difficulty.
Q1. Explain the different type of Joins.

Round 4 - First Managerial Round
After clearing both the technical interviews, I was called for the manager round. In this round, the questions were focused on the projects that I did. Then there were questions regarding those projects like what sort of problems I faced while doing them and which one is my favorite and all. It lasted for about an hour and was a good one.

Round 5 - Second Managerial Round
This round was no more different than the previous round except that it lasted for just half an hour. I was again asked about the projects and there were many cross questions. Stress was laid on the problems that I had faced while completing the projects. The round was quite knowledge-full for me.

Round 6 - HR Round
Nothing much was asked in the HR round. It was very basic and all sort of the expected questions were asked. After that, the package was offered and negotiations were done.

How to crack Royal Bank of Scotland Interview


My interview experience at Royal Bank of Scotland was pretty good. The people there are quite professional and resourceful. Even if you are not selected, you will gain a good experience. Well to give a few pointers for cracking the Royal Bank of Scotland Interview, I would say that you must study Core Java and SQL thoroughly. For the position, they require that two areas of the candidates to be strong particularly. You will be asked many questions based on that.

There is nothing more to tell. If you can master your Java and SQL, you have better chances at cracking the interview than other people. The questions are not very difficult but they will be a step ahead from the basic level and so you must prepare well.

Rest, my best wishes are with all the candidates.

Lateral Thinking Problem

Suppose there is a Christmas tree and four angels are sitting on it amidst the other ornaments. Two of them have black halos and two of them have white halos. No body among them can see above their head. Angel A is sitting on the top branch and can see angels B and C sitting below him. B can see C who is sitting in a branch lower than his. Angel D is at the base of the tree and can't be seen due to the branches in between. Also, he can't see anybody as well.

If they are asked to guess the color of their own halo (they dont know that), who do you think will be able to deduce and speak up first with a right answer?

Suddenly there was a short circuit and the lights went off. The husband inverted the position of 15 cards in the deck (52 cards normal deck) and shuffled the deck.

Now he asked his wife to divide the deck into two different piles which may not be equal but both of them should have equal number of cards facing up. There was no source of light in the room and the wife was unable to see the cards.

For a certain amount of time, she thought and then divided the cards in two piles. To the husband’s astonishment, both of the piles had equal number of cards facing up.
