SSC CGL Interview Experience by Bijayant (3rd Nov 2011)

I had my interview today on 03rd November in Delhi Region…I came to know by one staff outside interview room that all interview board member had come from outside. They were 4 in numbers .all were gents; no ladies and all were too old so as expected they didn’t ask anything( except one question) from current affairs nor from my hobbies, extra curricular etc….

My interview was mix of Hindi and English…Head interviewer started questioning in Hindi; I also started answering in Hindi…but in meantime track changed to English and my most of answer were in English but some time I also used Hindi when they cross-questioned in Hindi. Even some time they questioned single issue in mix of Hindi and English.

It will be easy if I will tell u guys a little bit abt my educational background as most of lengthy discussion were related to my background and my previous job experience and most of other question were also leading from all my answers. I have done my graduation from B.Sc Nautical Science and have done around 4-5 years job in shipping and last year I left my job for civil services preparations
