HOW THE INTERVIEWER CAN ASK YOU ?
The most terrifying question an interviewer can ask a gap year participant is why he or she
took the time off and how productive he or she was during that time. In retrospect, the
candidate may be asked if he or she would do it again and if they would recommend it to
a junior in the same position. The panel could pose the same question in several different ways.
HOW TO ANSWER IT ?
When faced with such a question, it is critical to be well prepared and on point. The gap is
justified if someone studied for 40 hours a day and received a 99 or 98 percentile; however,
a score lower than this indicates danger. The interviewer can make you feel uncomfortable by
calling you stupid outright. One can demonstrate to the interviewer that the time was well
spent by pursuing some certification in addition to preparing for the CAT or in any other way to demonstrate that the time was used in multiple ways.
