Most of the candidates are from B.Tech. background and they have an understanding of B.Tech. concepts very well, so the candidates are advised to keep the following points in their minds while facing the interview challenge.

  1. Prepare the topics along with the formulae and facts & figures.
  2. Read the basic concepts of other subjects too because some professors may be from the other fields.
  3. Be prepared with your project done in college or industrial training (if any).
  4. If you’re not recognizing any answer then be confident and politely say, “I don’t know”.
  5. Say no to the guesswork. The next question may be the same topic, so you may stick in the mid.
  6. If you are interested in research area then prepare your research topic very well.

Note: Aspirants must be through with their answers along with the logics because the interviewing team always checks the candidate’s analytical ability and understanding level of problems. Try to show them that you are ready to learn new things. Confidence is a must.
