Still I was tensed and then few GK questions added to my tension as I could'nt answer a couple of them.Then technical round started and I answered few questions correct and was confused in answering a couple of them..So I said that sir I'm confused and forgot the answers and told them the theory for that answer. Then it got over in 10 min and till last I was tensed and then I quietly moved out with a smile on my face.
General Tips
Don't get excited and don't refer any book/notes when you are going to enter the room. Be calm and cool and don't show attitude inside the interview room. If u don't know anything then just say sir I can't recall now or forgot.Have a smile on your face when the panel members crack a joke on you. Speak slow but be to the point and make your sentences catching.

PS :- interview is just a discussion between the people whom you don't know. It just tests more of your character and a bit of your technical knowledge.

  • Question 6: Brief details of my industrial training in BHEL
Interview Experience
Shortlisting was done on the basis of CGPA (mine was 9.38).There were 7 members in the interview room.All were friendly but the HR guy was staring at me.It was totally a nice experience.My interview was at 10.30 PM in the night .I entered the room with full of energy and a big smile on my face.They were very impressed by the way I presented myself in the interview,especially the way I replied when they asked '”Tell me about yourself and family background?””.””HR really matters”” because u need to give them a vivid picture of your 20 years life experience in few sentences. But there was one thing I felt would have been better if I had not done done that in the interview.When they asked me “”Which company would you choose NTPC or BHEL?””I replied ”” obviously NTPC because if I have to apply all the concepts and knowledge I have acquired in these 4 years, I strongly feel that NTPC is the right opportunity and moreover BHEL is just a manufacturing company”” Well what's wrong in this reply.There was one word that made a difference.Can u guess what it is...””JUST””…No sooner did I gave that reply than almost all the panel members said in unison that…..””u say it’s JUST a manufacturing company ( stressing on the word just)……if there is no BHEL then there is no NTPC………”” ……..then I tried to cover that saying……..””I just meant that BHEL is a part of the story while NTPC is the main story itself”.”But my overall performance dominated this small mistake I made,we tend to make mistakes,they don’t expect you to be ideal.I wanted to share this particular conversation with all of you so that it might be helpful to you.
General Tips
Be confident.Have a brief outlook on all the topics u have covered in academics.Give replies with a innocent and a cute smile whenever required……””A SMILE CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE””…..If you do not know the answer frankly reply saying“”I DO NOT KNOW””.I have done the same when they asked me about wind energy frequency control. Don’t get tensed and do not give one word answers.Give short and sweet replies ALL THE BEST

The interview process is pre selection based on CGPA basis. They wont give much importance to your CGPA in the
interview. Interview performance alone matters in the selection. Maintain proper dress code, show them how a
Professional student looks like and get a good impression. In case of PSU's they observe each n every aspect including your facial expressions etc. You need not tell all questions correctly, but try to answer those questions with a Supportive reason. If you don't know the question, don't become nervous.. just tell them that I don't have idea on the topic. Make sure that you are well equipped in at least two subjects. As far as my self is considered I have studied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer and IC engines. I have also referred the Projects whatever I have executed. Before leaving they have given a compliment to mine that "You have good academic background".

Only few basic questions were asked.They asked many questions from power plant engineering viz. details of
rankine cycle and few other questions. Thermodynamics and heat transfer was some other important topics.In crude they asked the most basic things of whatever topic they choose.

They made us comfortable to talk in either Hindi or English.In fact they cracked few jokes as well in front of students to make them feel comfortable. For me NTPC interview was less tense than any of the lab viva
