Interview platform: Zoom
The interview panel was comprised of two people. Both were in their late forties. The interview at the common admission process was the most intense of all interview experiences I had before being admitted to a B-school. They inquired about my favorite subjects from my undergraduate studies. Thermal and Internal Combustion Engines were my choices. However, they began asking me Material Science questions, such as drawing the iron-carbon diagram. I was well-prepared and able to answer any follow-up questions. They also asked me about the capitals of various subcontinental countries. They wanted to know what green fields are and how they differ from brown and blue fields. The interview lasted approximately 35 minutes.
Result: Selected in all IIMs that come under CAP
