worst interview… could not answer a single question of two members…. all irrelevant question from 1980 prison reforms in uk………..

i was in same board.all ques are factual……………like area of libya,pop of libya n density of libya.compare d density of libya vd ur home states density.he told me a case of 50 yrs back n ask d guidelines given by supreme court in his verdict which i heard first time in my life.many times he told dt u don’t know anythng.u r jst guessing.anyway it was vry bad experience………………………now m completely out of race n preparing 4 csat.

 

my answer was dat il try to save both bt he said no just 1 dn i said il save my servant who has served me since 20yrs as il hav a soft corner for him n will b more closer to him dan my boss wid whom i hav just formal relations…
sir provoked me a lot to save my boss whol give me medals n promotion bt i sticked to my answer..
paul sir said in any case u mite have thought d boss will die since hez old..all laughed at dz including himself n then he said thank you….
