    when i was a new grad, they just gave me 2 hard, and i failed. but after i prepared and interviewed again 3 yrs later, they just shoot me 5 medium and that's it. But still L3

  • I cleared L3 and i feel like it was all mediums with several follow-ups. Each part of the question was a medium. IMO hard is when each part asked required combining 2 or more medium concepts. I don't think any single part asked was a hard

      It seems to vary according to Blind. I have 1 or 2 YOE and I have an onsite soon. (It’s only 2 if you count the year I spent teaching at a bootcamp).

      Also, my recruiter never specified it was L3, but I’m just gonna assume it’s L3.

    • How can you have "1 or 2" yoe?

      Well like I said, it’s only 2 years if you count the year I spent teaching at a bootcamp.

      There is nothing below L3 at Google, so it can be 0 yoe

    Isn’t the difficult level relative to how well you are prepared?

      No, leetcode hard and medium are well defined things.

      How are they well-defined? After solving 100 LC mediums, I find them easy

      But they are still mediums. The set is fixed
