Interview preparation journey

Journey
During my B.tech, our seniors informed us how important DSA is to crack placements. Therefore, I started practising DSA from GeeksFromGeeks, Leetcode and codestudio right from my second year. I practise a lot of questions. Also, I focused on core subjects as well properly.
Application story
The HR contacted me through email. I was asked to appear for the coding test. I applied through the link provided and then the further rounds were carried out.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I was selected because I was able to answer all coding questions properly. I started with a naive approach and went ahead to explain the optimised approach for almost all the questions. Moreover, I had a deep understanding of OS concepts as well.
