Interview Questions: Medha Roopam (AIR 10, CSE 2013)

I was interview by Mr.  Chattar Singh Board. Most of the questions asked were from my Bio-Data and my graduation subject – Economics. Questions from Chairman were little tough and entailed brief but, crisp answers.

In between, there were some open ended questions as well as instances when I didn’t give fitting reply; but, board was co-operative and confidence helped me sail through.

My interview lasted for about 35 minutes and I was satisfied with my performance.
