So here are some interview tips for UPPCL AE Exam –

  1. As
    the interview is conducted by a board comprising of higher officials of
    UPPCL candidates need to be groomed well and should wear formal
    interview dress for appearing in interview.( & dont ask for tie )
  2. They will ask you which subject you have prepared , So do not
    hesitate to tell your fav subject. You can also tell sub-subjetcs i.e.
    DC machines/Transformers/Networks  So as to divert them directly to your
    fav topic.
  3. Generally they dont ask about project/ training but It may be worth
    to revise your project and training & if possible carry your project
    report/training report.
  4. Body language is an important point for Interviewers to select/
    deselect a candidate , Make sure you wont show any lack in yourself.
    Keep a normal eye contact (Dont look much downwards) . Keep up your
    confident voice( Dont speak too low ), 
  5. As the interview is of average 10-15 mins duration You need to give
    your best answers . Do not hesitate to say no if you dont know the
    topic. Rather tell them that you have not studied that particular topic
    and give them your fav topic. ( As giving wrong answers may give a
    negative impact to interviewers)
  6. In non tech section you may be asked anything from your hometowns
    background to your hobbies. So be prepared for such questions. Do not
    fake your hobbies as they may cross question you in that regard.
    Creative people may note that it is seen in some interviews going
    serious over hobbies. 
  7. Overall do not get pressurized by this interview . Just have your
    confidence with you.Nobody is getting below average marks ( Here 12-15
    Marks might be average) .
