I bombed an interview at a huge company because I didn't read the question properly! It was a true/false question that was worth like 15% and I just read the keywords and clicked true because I wanted to have more time for the coding problems.
Lesson learned: Triple read each question 😆
I nailed an interview once because I didn't process the question correctly lol.
Me: goes on a 7-minute spiel.
Interviewer: ... ... Well, that's not at all what we were asking. ... ... But tell me more about that.
Lol that sounds like something that could happen to me as well 😂
