I will suggest everyone to go through as many previous papers as possible and two shakuntala devi puzzles books (MOST IMPORTANT). If you do this u will definitely be able to clear the written test.
I am not that satisfied with my interview. But I think I have done fairly well. As soon as I entered the room an old man aged around 50 was the interviewer. He saw that I am a non local. SO first he srarted off with my family background. When I said in our family utmost importance is given to studies. He asked me the reasons for percentage decrease in engineering . He asked me to list out the reasons. I said with my 100% of effort I go t this percentage . IF I put 110% of my effort I will be able to achieve atleast 99%. later he asked me about the project we did, and the paper presentation I gave. And he gave two puzzles of which I solved only one. And in between he asked me to choose any topic of my own interest and talk upon that for 1 minute. I took BPO but I didn't talk that well. This is the only disappointing thing in my interview. Remaining all was fine and he asked me if I am willing to transfer to any place. I Said yes and he asked about my fathers work in singareni. And what my brothers are doing. Thats it.
I advise everyone to go for the interview with so much of preparation. Its better if you go with some general topics prepared of which u are pretty well known. GO prepared with your projects or paper presentations if any are there. Stay cool Have smile on your face always. Don't lose confidence. AND don't change your mind in the interview.
