An answer to corruption: an increase in number of women in politics
Brief Snapshot of your performance:
Started well, Gave good current and recent examples and facts. I could have ended the essay though in a better way. I had to make a choice between two possible choices of conclusions at the end. My rating : 3 on 5
Panel Members Intro: 3 persons. 2 males (M1 and M2) and a female (P1)
P1: State some good points which make U different from others.
Me: Answered. She seemed satisfied with the answer. :)
P2: What do you dislike in your daily life issues ?
Me: Answered. Saw an expression of satisfaction as well as a little amusement.
P2: Tell me what would U like to change in yourself.
Me: Answered. She seemed happy.
M2 suddenly asks b4 I complete my answer.
M2: Who is Tanvi Vyas ?
No idea sir.
M1 gives hint of newspaper.
Me: Oh, yeah Sir, I read about her. She was I think in news for some beauty pageant selection.
M2 did not seem satisfied.
M1 looking at certificates: When and how U got these certificates.
M1: Why MBA ??
Me: Ah, I thought something I was expecting. Answered. M1 seemed satisfied :biggrin:
M2 suddenly: Who is Parimal Nathwani ??:shock:
Me: Absolutely stumped
. I said, I do not remember. (Shit, gave a thought and recalled who he is after the interview outside. Was a sitter, should have easily answered that)
By then, I realised he was the momentum or rhythm breaker person in the panel who just came in to see if I lose my cool in such a situation. Must say the panellists were very brilliant. I felt honoured to be giving an interview.
M1: Explain me the difference between Otto and Diesel cycle.
Me; Answered. Too easy a question. Had been memorising this difference from 2nd year of engg.
M2 again comes in before I complete: What is Euro1, Euro2, Euro3 ??
Me: (After a little intentional thought to buy myself time.) Sir this are European Emission Standards. By now I got used to his sudden unexpected questioning pattern to break my series of thoughts.
P1: What are the pollutants that these refer to ?
M2: What is fuel injection? Explain for both types of engines
Me: Comfortably answered. Automobile has been one of my favourite subjects in mech. Engg. Was enjoying the questions totally.
M1: Explain difference between SI & CI engine.
M1: Thank you Mr. Vyas.
That is all that I can remember. My interview lasted a little longer than the normal time that was taken for other students. I think it might be because I am a fresher.
Overall experience was excellent.
Hope to convert the call. Although due to my pathetic CAT score, it seems a bit distant. But just keeping fingers crossed.
ATB to all.
