hey guys!!so the igidr results are out!!!
i would request you all to post any information regarding the types of questions or experiences at previous interviews.
Seniors are more than welcome...Best of luck everyone!!
This will be the second time I am giving the interview.
You will have full freedom to choose a specific topic and field you are well prepared in, and they will then asking you questions of varying degrees of difficulty. They will let you choose where you want the bulk of the questions to be from.
Thanks Creedence. Could you also tell us how topic-specific are their questions? For instance, if i say i like microeconomics, would they ask me questions about anything related to micro or do I need to be specific like I'm good at consumer theory or game theory etc? Also since you are appearing for the second time, could you also maybe suggest some dos and don'ts? Like something you realized you should have done or something you shouldn't have done?. Anything would be helpful. I would really appreciate your help.
hey thanks for that info...
i had a personal doubt!!since i am a stats graduate and had eco only in my first year my knowledge is a little limited compared to those who done in depth eco-honours!!so accordingly what do i stress on to make up for it??also do they ask your background related stuff or only pure eco???thankss
Rashika - Yes, you can be specific, but don't expect the questions to be straightforward (on the other extreme, in my particular case they started with Very basic questions), But even if you do specify something like consumer theory, they may still ask you a question or two from other areas of economics, since it seems you do have an economics background.
As for Dos and Don'ts, I was unprepared last time, so, be prepared? :) In general though, just remember there is no need to be nervous. They are very accommodating and will let you gather your composure even if you do get nervous. They don't really mark you on your oration in there, just keep your wits about you. Prepare for the questions they may throw your way is all I can advise.
Taanya - They will take your background into consideration before starting with their questions, so just let them know what field you have studied in and you will be questioned from within your domain. Be frank about what you do know and be prepared to face questions regarding the same. They're cool that way.
