Personal Interview is the last step for the aspirants to enter into their desired BSchool. And it is the most important stage of the selection process. PIs can be a cake walk or it can be the most gruelling stage of the entire selection process for many of the aspirants. Another thing is that you cannot have the knowledge of everything under the sun, but the good thing is that panellists don’t expect this from you. They are more interested in judging your thought process and your views about what is happening in the world. Success rate in the Interviews is proportional to the time spent in preparation.
