Whatever the pattern .. the interview s going to be the same and the only thing thats going to impress them s your ATTITUDE so make sure u r CONFIDENT, SPONTANEOUS, ACTIVE and CHEERFUL throughout the interview, no matter how hard the things go

And have with yourself some hard core data about the company

Interview s really cool and there s nothing to worry about it I cleared the written, faced the interview (did it fairly well I guess) and is now waiting for my resultsand I m telling u.. all that matters s your  strong DESIRE and WILL POWER and nothing can stop u from getting into the company

WISH U GOOD LUCK JINARD.
