Interview preparation journey

Journey
Accenture came for Campus placements in my college in September 2017. Since it was the first interview of my life, I was nervous. It was a group interview where 5 people were called together, 3 girls and 2 boys. I was called amongst all the toppers of my batch and I had scored barely 61% overall. So, more nervousness. However, the interview was great. I also had a little advantage because I had built an Android app and published it on Playstore, so I had some real world work sample to show. There were 2 interviewers, a guy and a girl, pretty young I can say. They greeted us and asked if we were nervous. We were then followed by clichéd interview questions. Like, hobbies, tell me about your project, why Accenture etc. Nothing extraordinary. However since my marks were low they asked me why. Overall, I was lucky I had got such relaxed interviewers because some of my friends told us a different tale altogether.
