    Me: Started and went well.

    Then I noticed that my voice was less intense. As I dint have my breakfast and I?m the first one to attend the interview (First member of first panel) so for me it was before lunch by 12.00. I verified him and asked whether I was audible or not?. Then I asked him water. Water was not there, he gave me a cup of juice. (This is to let u people know how friendly they were)

    Me: Thank you sir. I am feeling better now.

    Me: Shall I continue?

    Int: Yes. You can.

    Me: Started again and went till 3 mins. (There was a short pause after this)

    (I just filled it by saying ?Is there anything specific that you would like me to elaborate on??)

    Int: okie. What is your Field of Interest?

    Me: Microprocessor 8085

    Int: Can you draw the Architecture of that?

    Me: Yes. And I started drawing. (After few seconds he interrupted)

    Int: Can you program using microprocessor?

    Me: Yes sir

    Int: Then can you write a program for multiplying two numbers?

    Me: Finished the program within 1 min as I have prepared for this question.

    Int: Asked me to explain the program.

    Me: I did.

    Int: Microprocessor operates only on Binary right? Which converts Hexa decimal to binary.

    Me: I dun no the right answer for that. I said assembler

    Int: How many transistor does 8085 have?

    Me: 6500

    Int: Why does frequency of the external clock applied to 8085 get divided by 2 internally?

    Me: The frequency is divided to have lesser rise time and fall time

    Int: Do you know Dual-core. What it consists of?

    Me: A Microprocessor and Digital Signal Processor

    Int: What are the differences between them?

    Me: Told that it is used for specific signal processing applications and DSP consists of Integrated devices like Multiplier etc which are not present in microprocessor.

    Int: okie. Tell me about your project which you have presented.

    Me: I explained fully with diagram.

    Int: What are the papers you presented?

    Me: I explained about it.

    Int: Do you know to program in C?

    Me: Yes

    Int: Tell me about pointers/

    Me: I told him

    Int: Write a program using pointers?

    Me: I dint know how to write.. I jus bluffed him. He said Okie.

    Int: You are basically an athlete right? Why dint you participate in any competition after joining the college?

    Me: I explained.

    Int: You are a Kerala guy., If I offer you a job in coimbatore are you ready to shift there? (All the students to whom this question was asked, were placed in CTS)

    Me: I said okie.. It doesn?t matter where I work, rather how I work?

    Int: Do you have any question?

    Me: I?ve heard that CSE & IT students don?t have to undergo training in CTS. Is it true?

    Int: He said no.

    Me: What are the most you like and dislike in your trainees?

    Int: There are lots to tell man. We will talk about this later. Please tell the next person to come in.

     

    (As I was the first person, my interview went for almost 30 mins) (They don?t see whether your answers are correct or wrong, they only see the way you answer, the way you hold your pen, everything matters. Please wear a smile with you, when you enter the interview hall) (I was 1000% confident that Im gonna make through in CTS). To be placed in CTS is very easy. I?m ready to help for my colleagues.

    All the best.. C u in CTS
