SSC CGL 2011 Interview Preparation...

In SSC CGL INTERVIEW IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT For getting good Rank.So its importance can’t be ignored and thus should be treated with most sincerity. In CGLE-2010 only 28% of the candidates who were called for the interview scored 60 or above; which shows how tough the interview stage is.

*Question asked in SSC are mainly from what you have written in you Bio-data form....So prepare well as many question as possible from it......

-Questions on your graduation subject,hobbies are highly likely to be asked....
-Question like role of tax inspector and role of other post too can be asked.....  

 -Question on recent person/event in news can also be asked........

*GUYS participate in the interesting poll on the right hand side for the best Group A post through SSC CGL...

INTERVIEW----An Introduction
 The interview process runs from 15 minutes to 20 minutes generally and is conducted by a team of 4-5 members including the Chairman. Remember this board do not try to judge your general knowledge or any other subject matter specifically but its main purpose is to see how you respond to a particular query rather than what you answer. Therefore if you are unable to give an answer correctly it’s better to admit your ignorance. But it doesn't mean you take the things casually; it’s always in your favour if you answer the query correctly.
Marks in the interview may go upto 80 or even more; and as low as 25 or even further down. Now the question is who are those getting 70, 80 or higher marks. Of course they need not be brilliant in academics.
Questions in interview can be on any subject/topic that you have read in 12th standard, graduation & post graduation. Therefore a candidate ordinary in bookish knowledge can score high marks in an interview Following traits will help:
1. Personality---the various aspects of a person’s character that combine to make them different from other people
2. Eloquence ---ability of using language and expressing one’s opinions well
3. Good in academics and co-curricular activities
4. Awareness of the present happenings and events
5. Evaluation and formation of own opinions
6. Expression of job experience, if any, desirably
7. Leadership qualities

Kal kare so aaj kar, aaj kare so abhi!

    Topper's words.

    " Success in Interview lies in how well you are able to express your qualities to the board. A few days at Career Quest, Delhi under Sanjeev Kabeer sir's guidance made me realised what qualities of expression I was lacking and how could I develop them in minimum time-frame with a goal oriented approach. This also improved my earlier performance substantially."
