[Official] Interview Preparation for CSE 2019-20

Hello All,

I am starting this thread for Interview Preparation for CSE 2019 examination.

We created a group last year over Telegram, but the issue with the Telegram group is that we have lost out on all the conversations of the past year. That is the most valuable asset that we have and that which can be passed on to next year candidates.


P.S. All Interview Transcripts have now been compiled at the below link so that we can search for board members, profile, toppers scripts etc.

Let's do this!

How many mocks are required before the final interview @Neyawn ? (Minimum) 

This is completely subjective. In my opinion go for at least 3 - 5 Mocks. Whatever you do, that is no matter how many mocks you take follow two principles

One, collect as many questions as possible from every mock. Write down questions asked after each mock. Don't leave it to memory. All the people I know who prepared well and predictably ( and not accidentally ) got good ranks were the ones who did this.

Two, decide one or two places from which you will take feedback. At all other places, mock is to be used for the purpose of collecting questions. If you take feedback from everyone, chances are you wont end up following anyone.

@shivamsharma_jln5301 

in my opinion, few things can be prepared from now on.

1) Home state

2) Basics like name, educational background, questions from degree, stream etc

3) Work experience if any

4) Anything else that you expect to be in the DAF

5) Basic HR type questions


The other thing that must be done is doing the newspaper well and RSTV videos. Not the summaries.


You can get started with these. Some people may have a doubt that what if results are not expected. For those people, even if results go the other way, you anyway have to prepare for this eventually.


Thanks for asking. May help a lot of people.

@MassiveSuccess Can’t really generalise. But I’m sure anyone will be really pleased with a person

1. Who is true. Doesn’t project what one isn’t.
2. Is well informed. This doesn’t mean knowledge. But a personality that shows understanding of issues beyond superficial content.
3. Is composed, assertive. Doesn’t require language fluency/ costly attire. But presence of mind + confidence in presenting oneself. 

Just my two cents ?

Cheers!

@Sultan  No that is not needed at all. But of there is some event that is being held / some incident in your home state that has made national headlines, you should be aware of it.

Not just with home state, but with other places also mentioned in DAF.

shivamsharma_jln5301, Sultan

@Neyawn are the interviews held alphabetically(state wise ) ? Will we get the time of minimum 1month between results and interview ? Thanks a lot 

Last year they did not call Alphabetically or even State Wise. It has been randomised now. earlier people who were from delhi region were called first and far regions were called last. now it is randomised. however for remote areas ample time is given, for example, south or north east.

Has no one cleared from this thread ? :(

I have also cleared Sir. I am out side Delhi because of some emergency issues. Will be coming back in first week of February.

@Sultan How are you planning to prepare this year? I have  ot fared in the last years interview . Got 140 marks Bhonsale Sir Board.


Which all mocks are you planning ? Are you in Delhi?

For female candidates , are there some colors that are considered subtle in sari( or other dress code ) ? Thanks a lot @Neyawn 

I do not think so. Generally people wear Sarees in both light and dark colors. There is no such issue.

But people have been asked questions on Silk, Silk Industry, Tassahr , Moonga Silk etc. So speak to your Mom or Google it and find out more about types of Slik and all that,

shivamsharma_jln5301,

Thank u sir @Neyawn  .. is it essential to prepare a diary of questions and answers as u told that ur one student was having a register full of questions and answers beforehand ? Does it usually help OR we should prepare one page notes from RSTV and papers (hindu and express ) ? Will it suffice in last time ? 

The Diary or notes which I have said with with respect to questions from your DAF - hometstate, school. college, degree etc. 


For RSTV, you cover the news itsems issue wise. That would be better.

+1 

They have not been calling alphabetically or with respect to distance factor from Delhi for at least past 3-4 years now. It is a little randomised. Many people from Haryana, for example got interview dates on the last date.

shivamsharma_jln5301,

is there any thread where this year's transcripts are being uploaded?
