Dear all design aspirants,
You must have read many success stories in Teacup alone. All are basically the same. So I am not going to repeat it. I choose design over engineering simply because it gives more freedom and flexibility.
I want to give some little interview tips. This is not my success story, but my experience.
I was nervous while attending IITB transportation interview (though the studio test was simple for all) and I failed.
Then it was IISc.. There were no studio test, only some technical ( +2 maths), objective & subjective stuff along with a Qn to draw Mahindra Reva ( Picture was given). I did it well, and it gave me a little confidence. The interview was like testing my industrial knowledge. I failed to answer many of their Qns properly. I had good ideas but they were not complete and I failed to consider all possible situations. But soon it became like an interactive group chat. They taught me many things there itself. They laughed on my funny attitude, me too. I was never nervous and I had ask them to stop laughing and let me go ( obviously I was smiling while saying that).
Finally I was in. Class started at IISc. The guy mainly interviewed me is a legend in the dept. And later I realized that I was in only because I made them entertaining through out my interview and not because of the test in which I performed well.
