I had a phone screen recently for new grad SWE. I got two hard problems in 40 minutes. The second hard cannot be even found when I google and not on leetcode. I completed the first one and the second implementation of mine was failing for one test case. Finally the time ended. But I completed the first and second one worked for all test cases but one.

How would the onsite decision be made in such a case? Any insight is helpful.

      I heard back within the next 2 days for yes. If no it usually takes longer.
