After reading my CV very carefully for about 2-3 minutes, he said, "So Why don't you start speaking about yourself?".
Interviewer: Why did you take up computer science?
Me: I had computer science from class 9. It was since then that I started a liking for the subject and after +2 I decided that If I take up any subject, that has to be Computer science.
Interviewer: okay. So what is your favorite programming language?
Interviewer: What are pointers and why do we need them?
Interviewer: ok. You have mentioned core Java in your CV. What do you know about Core Java.
Me: Inheritance, Exceptions, Thread.
Interviewer: What are exceptions?
He then asked some other questions from Java like What is NullPointerException, What is Polymorphism, etc.
Interviewer: Tell me about some major hurdles that you have faced in your academics.
Me: Told about a problem that we encountered in our project.
Interviewer: How do you plan to overcome it?
Me: Sir, we already overcame it. (Then told him, how we solved it. ).
He then asked some other technical questions from my projects and also about my role in the project. I answered them all.
Interviewer: Did your guide help you in anyway?

Me: Sir, I have spent many sleepless nights preparing lab files and writing project reports. I don't think that would be a problem.

Me: If somebody is working in a particular domain and tomorrow if he wants to shift to some other domain, is that possible?
Interviewer: gave a really loooooong answer.
