We reached IISc (or TATA institute, as it is locally called) at about 7.30am. We were not having the right knowledge of how much time will it take to reach IISc. So we left the rest house at 7am.
The test was supposed to start at 9am. Rohan was whiling away with the newspaper. Then i too got involved in it. We then went for a walk in the IISc campus(actually jungle).
Ok. Back to topic.
About the TEST: The test started at 9.15am. It was 1.5 hr test. To our surprise the test was SUBJECTIVE as against OBJECTIVE as mentioned in the call letter. Main tabhi samajh gaya ki ‘mushkil hai boss’.
The Qs were of 1M & 2M like GATE but subjective. I solved some of them. It was ok-ok. I was on the boundary(may or may not be called for interview). The results were out at 7pm. I called my friends in Mumbai to check out.
I got selected for interview.
About interview: There were 3 Interveiwers. They asked mainly about my BE project. Then went deep into it. Asked some Qs on controllers (PI) as i used stepper motors & the proj involved a path tracing.
How to correct the position of the robot if it gets drifted from its path?
Which type will u use, accumulator or gain?
Write some eqns & explain.
What’ll the robo do if there is intersection in the path?
Then gave an eg & asked how the particular path will be followed.
Couldn’t do the controller part well. Rest was ok.
Then 1 of them asked about very simple basics of vlsi which i answered. Then my time (20min sharp) got over.
So overall it was…hmm… ok…actually, bad.
I m not hoping at all.
