I know that u have very good experiences regarding the admissions specially in IITs, I have read all your articles and it really motivated me.
So can you please give me some interview tips and questions as this will be my first time?
And I also lack a bit of confidence as my rank is not that good to get into an IIt
Well Thanks for your words of appreciation. I am glad that the articles help you guys out in some way.
For interviews, following things should always be kept prepared:
1) Your major Project that you did in B.Tech (thorough questioning on your project is done)
2) Your research interest
3) Your favourite subject and then thorough questioning on that subject.
4) Topics related to the degree you are applying for (for example: for IITB, questions related to Bioinstruments, Tissue culture, synthetic organs, nanobiotech are expected. For IITD, questions related to Biochemistry, Enzymes, Microbial and Enzyme Kinetics, Bioreactos are expected. and so on).
And donot loose confidence. As I told you all, in the first stage of screening, the GATE Rank has no meaning at all. If you clear the test you are through to interview, otherwise even Rank 1 holder can be shown the doors. If you are eligible to apply, you have equal chances of selection as others (it's only in the interview that they consider your GATE score, but if you impress your interviewers, nobody looks at your GATE score). I had 99.6 percentile, but still I couldn't impress the interview panel (my Rank/score had no bearing at all).
So stay confident and prepare well with cool state of mind!
All the best!
