It is important to prepare well and clear the first round comfortably as these tests are generally the first elimination round of the complete process. In this process, there is a check of the skills of students in three parameters which are communication skills in English, reasoning ability and quantitative ability etc.
Group Discussions: In order to understand and sift through multiple candidates in order to come down to a select few, this step is relatively easier way. This can be formal or informal in order to check confidence in students, original presentation of ideas and flow of thought and conduct in a group. Most of the companies choose panel interviews instead of group discussions which is a more formal exercise.

It is domain and role specific in nature. Most of the recruiters believe that fresher taken from campus placements may not be suitable for the positions but there are certain parameters that should be spot on.
HR Interview: In this step, it is checked that candidate is fit or not for the organization by HRs. the willingness to move for work of students and behavior in good and bad situations are considered in this step rather than classic check.
