    Software Testing Interview Questions for Freshers - Manual Testing Mock Interview

    Software testers analyse software and systems to avert risk and prevent issues

    As a software tester, you'll be involved in the quality assurance stage of software development and deployment. You'll conduct automated and manual tests to ensure the software created by developers is fit for purpose and any bugs or issues are removed within a product before it gets deployed to everyday users.

    Your role is integral to the creation of software systems and technical products including vehicles, electronic goods, defence, and healthcare. You might work on bespoke, individual projects or multinational projects spanning the globe and costing billions of pounds. You'll need to be familiar, or become familiar with, programming and using coding languages.


    As a software tester, you'll need to:

    • meet with system users to understand the scope of projects
    • work with software developers and project support teams
    • identify business requirements
    • plan projects
    • monitor applications and software systems
    • carry out stress testing, performance testing, functional testing and scalability testing
    • write and execute test scripts
    • run manual and automated tests
    • test in different environments including web and mobile
    • write bug reports
    • assess code
    • carry out resource planning
    • review documentation
    • work towards departmental and project deadlines
    • provide quality assurance
    • provide objective feedback to software development project teams
    • troubleshoot and problem solve
    • design tests to mitigate risk
    • present findings to software development and business user teams
    • travel to different project sites
    • work on multiple projects at one time
    • document analysis
    • liaise with project teams in other parts of the world
    • communicate findings to technical and non-technical colleagues.


    • Starting salaries for graduate-level software testing positions are in the region of £18,000 to £24,000 (depending on location and company size).
    • With three to five years' experience, salaries can rise considerably. Software testers earn £35,000 to £50,000 on average.

    Salaries vary according to location, technical knowledge and the sector. The City of London and financial services currently pay the highest salaries. Some companies also offer bonus schemes, benefits and overtime payments for unsociable hours.

    Income figures are intended as a guide only.

    Working hours

    Working hours usually follow a standard office day of eight or nine hours, between 8am and 6pm. However, due to the nature of project work you may be required to work outside these times.

    On occasion this may mean working shifts and weekend work. This would be most likely to occur during periods of software deployment or if a project happens to be taking place across a variety of locations and time zones.

    What to expect

    • Work is mainly office-based and you'll spend the majority of your time at a computer.
    • Your role may be stressful at times, particularly around the time of project completion.
    • Once you've gained adequate experience, you could progress into the freelance and contracting market. This would enable you to select specific projects and work more flexibly. However, working as a contractor may not provide the same benefits and job security in comparison to a permanent employee.
    • The IT sector, including software testing roles, has a higher ratio of male to female workers. However, there is a higher ratio of female to male software testers when compared with other IT jobs (such as software development). Organisations working to encourage more females into software testing roles and IT careers include Women in Technology and the BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT).
    • Companies employ software testers in many locations within the UK. The highest concentration is in large cities including London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham. There are also international opportunities, most notably in the USA and India, where a large number of offshore software testing companies are based.


    Software testers often have a degree in computer science or IT. However, the role is open to graduates from a variety of degree disciplines including:

    • chemistry
    • electrical engineering
    • mathematics
    • physics.

    You can enter the software testing profession with an HND or foundation degree. A diploma in software, IT, or engineering may be most highly regarded by companies.


    You'll need to have:

    • strong verbal and written communication skills with the ability to liaise with a variety of stakeholders
    • problem-solving skills
    • the ability to work under pressure
    • attention to detail
    • competent technical skills
    • the ability to work in a team and individually
    • organisational skills with the capability of working towards tight deadlines
    • a passion for working with technology.

    Work experience

    A number of large graduate employers offer summer internships and year-in-industry placements, which provide the opportunity to gain relevant work experience. Completing such a placement will give you useful professional software testing experience and would expose you to the full development lifecycle.

    Some companies run work shadow schemes to give an insight into the software testing profession.

    Your university may also have a computing society. Joining relevant university societies will help you demonstrate your passion for technology and may provide other opportunities to meet with companies and industry professionals.

    Find out more about the different kinds of work experience and internships that are available.


    Software testers are required in a variety of industries, where they are a valuable asset to organisations that rely on safe, functioning software to operate.

    You can find software testing opportunities in:

    • financial services
    • healthcare
    • manufacturing
    • media
    • professional services
    • public sector
    • retail
    • telecommunications
    • transport.

    Large graduate employers may include software testing within their rotational IT graduate programmes. This would give you the opportunity to gain experience in software testing as well as other IT roles (including project management, application support and software development).

    Employers without traditional rotational graduate schemes may offer software testing as a direct entry role where candidates start work as a software tester from day one.

    You may wish to consider your preference for style of working before you apply for jobs. Large organisations often have software testers dedicated to one project, while smaller organisations may have a central team working on multiple projects.

    Look for vacancies at:

    Professional development

    Training will depend on the company you join and can vary from structured training and development programmes organised via a graduate scheme, to on-the-job training and short courses, as required.

    The IT sector is ever changing, so it's important that you keep up to date with developments and specific software testing trends.

    Joining a professional association, such as BCS, can be helpful and may help to expand your awareness of the IT sector. Membership can also offer opportunities to meet a variety of professionals.

    The BCS, along with more than 100 accredited training organisations worldwide, runs a number of software testing courses and professional qualifications. The courses and qualifications are mapped against SFIAplus (the Skills Framework for the Information Age), which is the UK's government-backed competency framework describing IT roles and the skills needed to carry them out.

    At present there are no specific software testing postgraduate degrees offered by UK institutions. However, it's not uncommon for software testing professionals to decide to study a postgraduate IT qualification at some point during their career. Search postgraduate courses in computer sciences and IT.

    Career prospects

    You may start your career as a software tester on a graduate scheme or via an entry-level position. Career progression can be rapid. The speed at which you progress will depend on your experience, your exposure to different systems, and awareness of testing methods. Professional qualifications and technical skills will help to speed up your progression.

    Some software testers progress into senior software testing roles, including:

    • senior software tester
    • software test team lead
    • test manager.

    You could choose to specialise by gaining experience within a specific sector, for example, financial services or media. Or you may decide to diversify and develop an understanding of many sectors.

    Although different roles, the testing skills you use as a software tester are broadly the same as those used by a game tester. Meaning, it may be possible to move across into the game sector, if you wanted to work on a different type of software.

    Additionally, as software testers are required to work with business and project teams, you could move into business-facing roles, such as business analysis and project management.

    Progression into software development roles is another possible route.

    This guide will take you through the In’s and outs of software testing. If you plan to make a career in software testing, this is a MUST READ!

    What is Software Testing?

    Software Testing is a process of verifying a computer system/program to decide whether it meets the specified requirements and produces the desired results. As a result, you identify bugs in software product/project.

    Software Testing is indispensable to provide a quality product without any bug or issue.

    In this tutorial, you will learn-

    Skills required to become a Software Tester

    We will discuss the Technical and Non-Technical required to become a Software Tester

    Non-Technical Skills

    Following skills are essential to become a good Software quality tester. Compare your skill set against the following checklist to determine whether Software Testing is a reality for you-

    • Analytical skills: A good software tester should have sharp analytical skills. Analytical skills will help break up a complex software system into smaller units to gain a better understanding and create test cases. Not sure that you have good analytical skills – Refer this link – if you can solve at least ONE problem you have excellent analytical skills.
    • Communication skill: A good software tester must have good verbal and written communication skill. Testing artifacts (like test cases/plans, test strategies, bug reports, etc.) created by the software tester should be easy to read and comprehend. Dealing with developers (in the event of bugs or any other issue) will require a shade of discreetness and diplomacy.
    • Time Management & Organization Skills: Testing at times could be a demanding job especially during the release of code. A software tester must efficiently manage workload, have high productivity, exhibit optimal time management, and organization skills
    • GREAT Attitude: To be a good software tester you must have a GREAT attitude. An attitude to ‘test to break’, detail orientation, willingness to learn and suggest process improvements. In the software industry, technologies evolve with an overwhelming speed, and a good software tester should upgrade his/her technical Software testing skills with the changing technologies. Your attitude must reflect a certain degree of independence where you take ownership of the task allocated and complete it without much direct supervision.
    • Passion: To Excel in any profession or job, one must have a significant degree of the passion for it. A software tester must have a passion for his / her field. BUT how do you determine whether you have a passion for software testing if you have never tested before? Simple TRY it out and if software testing does not excite you switch to something else that holds your interest.



      Non-Technical skills of Software Tester


      Non-Technical skills of a Software Tester



    Technical Skills

    This list is long, so please bear with us

      • Basic knowledge of Database/ SQL: Software Systems have a large amount of data in the background. This data is stored in different types of databases like Oracle, MySQL, etc. in the backend. So, there will be situations when this data needs to be validated. In that case, simple/complex SQL queries can be used to check whether proper data is stored in the backend databases.
      • Basic knowledge of Linux commands: Most of the software applications like Web-Services, Databases, Application Servers are deployed on Linux machines.So it is crucial for testers to have knowledge about Linux commands.
      • Knowledge and hands-on experience of a Test Management Tool:Test Management is an important aspect of Software testing. Without proper test management techniques, software testing process will fail. Test management is nothing but managing your testing related artifacts.

        For example – A tool like Testlink can be used for tracking all the test cases written by your team.

        There are other tools available that can be utilized for Test Management. So, it is important to have knowledge and working experience of such tools because they are used in most of the companies.

      • Knowledge and hands-on experience of any Defect Tracking tool- Defect Tracking and Defect life cycle are key aspects of software testing. It is extremely critical to managing defects properly and track them in a systematic manner. Defect tracking becomes necessary because the entire team should know about the defect including managers, developers, and testers. Several tools are used to log defects including QC, Bugzilla, Jira, etc.
      • Knowledge and hands-on experience of Automation tool: If you see yourself as an “Automation tester” after a couple of years working on manual testing, then you must master a tool and get in-depth, hands-on knowledge of automation tools.

        Note – Only knowledge of any Automation tool is not sufficient to crack the interview, you must have good hands-on experience, so practice the tool of your choice to achieve mastery.

        Knowledge of any scripting language like VBScript, JavaScript, C# is always helpful as a tester if you are looking for a job into automation. Few companies also use Shell/Perl scripting, and there is a lot of demand for testers having knowledge of the same. Again, it will depend on the company and which tools are used by that company.

    There is also a lot of scope for performance testing tools because applications need to be tested for their performance which is a part of non-functional testing.

    That’s it to technical knowledge. Please note you do not need ALL the technical skills listed above. The technical skill sets required vary with the Job Role and company processes.

    Academic Background

    Academic background of a software tester should be in Computer Science.

    A BTech/ B.E., MCA, BCA (Bachelor of Computer Applications), BSc- Computers, will land you a job quickly.

    If you do not hold any of these degrees, then you must complete a software testing certification like ISTQB and CSTE which help you learn Software Development/ Test Life Cycle and other testing methodologies.


    Compensation of a software tester varies from company to company. Average salary range of a software tester in the US is $45,993 – $74,935. Average Software testing career package in India is Rs 247,315 – Rs 449,111.

    Also, a software tester is also given health insurance, bonuses, gratuity and other perks.
