Happy Ugadi to everyone concerned 😀 !!
Okay this one was on 9th march,2k7. Each panel had 3 prof.s, contrary to the dual member panels at K,L,I,B .
Case study (yet ,again! ) This time , it was a fish market , an absolute fish market.So there isn’t going to be even a miscule difference whether you speak or not.Methinks that most of the marks for GD will be given in tandem with the quality of the GD-summary we wrote in the end.
1st,2nd and 3rd Professors = P1,P2,P3
P1 ‘s questions:
1)So Mr.Harish,you are in Electronics and Commnications , so may we safely assume you are good at verbal communication too ?
2)What do you want to do in life ?
3)What is your favourite subject ?
4) Signal processing, is it ? Tell me why signal processing is required at all ?
5) Name some encoding & decoding schemes.
6) Come up with 3 analogues that relate signal processing and team-building .
7) What sort of modulation do we see in a radio ? (to which i answered “FM (frequency modulation)”)
8) Isn’t AM (Amplitude modulation) there too in radio communication ? (yes)
9)Explain the concept of AM signal !
10) Draw an AM signal and tell me which is the carrier and which one is the message signal.
11) What kind of signals did you generally observe in your lab oscilloscope ?
P2’s Questions :
1)What are your interests ?
2)Atheletics ? Any achievements ?
3)Oh I see! So which countries are famous for long distance running ? (to which I answered “some african nations ” )
4)Africa is a big continent! I am asking countries . (i said “ethiopia” )
5)What about kenya ? (yes sir!Kenya also has lots of winners …baad baad ..I should have remembered kenya 😦 ..okay one guffawed question so far)
6)What about your interests in other sports ? (Yes sir!I play other sports too with interest! )
p3’s questions :
1) Do u have a credit card of your own ?
2)How does a credit card work ?
(to which like a true engineer 😛 (super mutated LOLs) I answered the mechanism of the magnetic strip,the card-swiping,the code-entering,etc.,)
3) Eh! Is it ?
(Sir! That is for drawing money from a machine.For buying soemthing,we need to ..blah blah )
4)Okay okay! Leave the mechanism ! What is the bank’s advantage in isuuing credit cards ?
5)What is the user’s advanatage apart from realising an immediate loan ?
6)What is the difference between a credit card and a debit card ?
Thats it!I did speak twice or thrice in GD (I am including, only those spoken attempts when everyone else stopped to listen 🙂 ) And I think I wrote a pretty above-average summary as well
PI ? except for a little faltering (which I made sure was not that apparent ) at the “kenya” part and a little confusion at the ” bank-interest” part , I was okay in the PI , esp. with the acads 🙂
So , I guess good ol’ me can hope for the best.We shall only know in April …
