Test HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
3 hours Minutes
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Chemistry
  • Section 2: Aptitude +General Knowledge +Verbal ability+Logical reasoning
Interview Experience
Basically there were two sections 1- Subjective Questions - 70 questions ( Questions were different for chemistry , physics , and mathematics applicants ) .In this section there were questions based on passage , calculation based questions that were supposed to be answered in numerals , and optional type. This section's questions were subject wise as per the applicants subject choice  .  2-Second section was comprised of Aptitude ,Logical reasoning , General English , and few questions of general knowledge and current affairs and it had 30 questions. Total 3 hours had been given to take test to each candidate but there was negative marking for each wrong answer.
Result of this written test was like this - " They selected only 8 candidates from each subject ,that are CHEMISTRY ,MATHEMATICS and PHYSICS out of whole lot for the next round of recruitment procedure. Those 8 candidates were screened based on the test scores.
Interview Tips
Attempt those questions first ,which look easy to solve .As it had negative marking pattern ,so while answering, avoid making blind guesses and attempt those, which you are sure about in order to get clear in written . As I personally felt that time given to candidates was well enough to take test,so did not find time factor as problem.There were some question whose answer were supposed to be given in numerals/digits,so while attempting such questions make sure to solve them correctly as these sort of questions are like blessing in disguise but can be risky as well.As due to negative marking feature ,even 1 mark turned out as deciding factor, cause the passage for entering to next round was quite narrow ..means only 8 candidates were allowed to go next round for each subject .So give your best at test and take it sincerely and wisely .
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself .
  • Question 2: Tell me something about your family .
  • Question 3: As being a girl , will you comfortable with the location that we will allot you ,in case if you get selected ?.
Interview Experience
Actually HR interviews had gone parallelly  along with teaching demonstration round ,which was 2nd and of course last round . Very first question's been fired ....."Ohk then ,Tell me something about yourself ".Well this was the 1st question that had been asked to me when i entered inside the room to take demonstration class before the interviewer .As we(candidates ) had been told during PPT (pre placement talk ) ,that this teaching demonstration will be major and prime factor of selection and our whole probability of getting selected will solely depend on the way we'll nail the  teaching demonstration round . They asked some HR questions like "ok tell us about your family ,who are there in your family etc" . Answer it,just how you feel ,as these kind of questions are general type that one can easily answer, but yet frame the answer in your head before saying . As far as I have seen ,if a girl belongs to core branch ,she has to face one basic question ( not necessary in all cases :D ) " BEING A GIRL ,what are the qualities you posses that makes you different from other candidates ? " ...." Suppose if we hire you ,but BEING A GIRL , if we allocate you at any place  ,will you be comfortable ? "
                                            So basically girls you'll have to go through such questions if you will attend interview ,but never mind , one should know how to answer in best possible way :) ... 
Demonstration went for about 25-35 minutes ,and we had been told to choose any one of the topic related to the subject we had applied for,and were asked to take demo class like one that happens in school and coaching classes .
Interview Tips
Like every other interviews ,interviewers shoot ICE BREAKING question                                                       " Tell me about yourself " ...Very basic 1 ,this is the perfect time to grab the whole attention and to outcast who and what you are  . Basically all they seek and want to know from you is " what specific skill and things you are good at , that would be useful to the post they are offering " 
GRAB the attention and take the conversation to the ways ,like you want .As the HR's probable next question ,that it may ask ,would be out of the one you told in your introduction part  .As I had missed telling about my family by little ,so out of curiosity ,they asked  to me to tell itself  . Well as i said the demonstration was all,that had mattered the most ,so do focus on the skills of teaching .
                                 The MOOL MANTRA  to answer any question to any interviewer is " One should be convinced and satisfied with it's answer, before telling it to someone ,cause if you are not convinced then how can we expect to convince someone else before us :) " 
Apart from it , be genuine and cool throughout the demonstration and interview, ( Never show any anxiety on face , cause they want human as there employee ,not a machine  :) ...Never fumble or go blank .If you not getting the right answer ,then don't get panic, as no one is PERFECT and they know it ,but one should know how to answer in other best possible way . During demonstration they had raised questions related to the content that i was teaching , and quenched down there curiosity by answering . Don't let your voice shiver ( as it's shows one's lack of confidence.Lucky if interviewer would take it as your nervousness, but make sure to not continue it for long ).
Round 3

Skills

Skills Tested

Skill Tips
Be good with the points that one is supposed to take demo class on. Do questions to yourself and try to frame how to answer . Answer should be good enough to clear doubt not to increase it .
Resources

Preparation materials

Books
  • R.S. Agrawal for aptitude ,
  • 11th and 12th books or notes ,
General Tips
Be clear with what you want to answer. Do practice aptitude question ,as everyone is good enough to solve aptitude questions ,but what matters is SPEED and ACCURACY. So practice to solve them in time . If one is not getting answer ,then don't stick with it ,and hit the next question. As sometime many test papers are designed in such a way that initial question's solutions are lengthy enough that it kills most of the given test time, hence we miss many simple questions that could help us to clear the written round . So have a good look on questions and smartly take test ,Cause eventually the score will decide ,not  the way like how one started answering from question no. 1 :)))
Funny Moments
DISCLAIMER - PLEASE DO NOT FOLLOW IT, NOT NECESSARY THAT IT WOULD WORK OUT FOR ALL , DO NOT BE A COPYCAT :P :D :P 

Well there was nothing much  funny that had happened during interview ,as these moments already quite create  tense atmosphere . But still to divert our mind from such anxiety ,take your attention to somewhere and fix it to something . Well during the time span of written and demo round, it was about 2 hours of break and i had come back to room but what i was doing ,was playing games :P  unaware of written's result :D .Meanwhile I got call from one of my friend who were there  at college at that moment  " Abey ho gya tera next round ke liye :P ,aaja college "  ,and Then i closed the game and went like BOSS 8-) .Must be thinking what was funny ?? Agreed ,it wasn't funny but yeah I found it helpful as when one ponder about results , consequences , and interview as battle ,it nervous  a person even more ,So take it like nothing is happening and all you have to do is being yourself and let your talent come out  :D :P

Round 1

Test

Duration
180 Minutes
No. of Questions
100 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Written Test
Interview Experience
As expected, the written round was there to test our subjective knowledge. We have to opt for one subject from PCM before going for selection procedure. There were 100 questions out of which, 80 were based on the subject, 10 on Quantitative Aptitude and 10 were on Current Affairs. Level of subject questions was quite good, most of the question were from the basic concepts which we have gone through during our 11th & 12th class.
Interview Tips
Go through NCERT books of 11th & 12th
Round 2

Other Interview

Interview Experience
It was basically a DEMO LECTURE round in which we have to present a topic of our choice from the selected subject to the panel. The main aim behind this round was to check our demonstration skills, how we perform under pressure, how we deliver a lecture. Some cross questions were also raised during this round only to check our performance.
Interview Tips
Stay calm & focused, just assume you are teaching a panel of some idiots ;), then it automatically comes out from you. Remember, this round is just to test your teaching skills, so try to teach in a manner in which you always wanted. Because no one wants a boring lecture, try to make it as interesting as possible.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself ?
  • Question 2: Will you be comfortable in working PAN India location?
  • Question 3: Interested in teaching ?
Interview Experience
Just a normal HR question and everyone knows to answer it.
Interview Tips
Tips... umm just google it you will find many answers there but one sincere advice, try to be yourself only, don't fake anything, be calm there is no point in showing hurry/getting nervous... HR panel people are just normal people who are there only to know you. Consider it as you are meeting a normal person or remember the first time meet with your gf/bf (only diff is it is formal one: means no bakchodi) and answer them normally tell them everything about yourself.
