At last, I want to add, friends, be very confident and tenacious for points you express in the interview. The panel does not want candidates who have learned all answers by heart, but they want the ones with actual knowledge. So try to get well acquainted with current affairs not just of India but of the world as well. I wish each one of you very good luck for future ventures.
