M: Ok then also what do know about Data Science - Sir 150 years back oil was called black gold, same is true for Data today. Any firm which has more data today can make influence. Data science is something to analyse and interpret available data in my opinion. 4. M: Do you know what is Industry 4.0? - Sir Industrial revolution started in 17 th century in Britain and we have come along way today to Industrial Revolution 4.0. Here most of the facility in industries are digitised to make things more eco and user frindly. 5. M: So Industry 4.0 is all about enhancing GUI( Graphical User Interface) - Sir GUI might form a chunk of it but its not all abt it. Industry 4.0 also aims to reduce digital divide and make services available to both who are at cities and who are extreme locations. 6. M: So why do you want to do an MBA? - Sir I want to work for diversified areas and grow up to some eminent positions 7. M: You already have 3years work ex and within a year you will rise to significant leadership roles, why need to go for MBA - Sir its true, but currently I am working at the grassroot level of oil field and its a very niche field.

I want to work for more diverse industries and experience them. 8. M: But you will again hop on to different company after two years and keep on doing that - No sir, I come today to this decision after analysing my work area thoroughly within these years. 9. M: I will return later, Mam want to ask something 10. F: Ok Do you know what standard deviation is - Mam I dont know much but its the measure of how much a set of data deviates from its mean 11. F: Ok Now tell me What will be the probability of getting atleast two heads when we toss four coins together. Basic twelth class Mathematics - Mam, I can get that it will be 2/8 or 1/4 probability of getting two heads . 12. F: But I told atleast what about other cases - Oh Sorry mam, I cannot formulate the cases at present but it would definitely be more than 1/4. 13. M: Okk where are you posted at present ? - I am at Rajahmundry in AP at present 14. M: Okk then can you guess the no of cricket balls would be required by Rajahmundry in a month. Take your time and come at a number and tell me how you reached that no. - (Took some time) Sir I am not at the city but at some remote location, if I guess there would atleast five to six sports complex in the city and if we take the survey of those complexes about their usage and extrapolate those numbers to other local people who play cricket then we can guess a number 15.

M: Tell me a number - Sir I guess around 1500 to 2000 per month 16. M: How you came to that number like what assumptions you supposed - Sir I supposed that a sports complex might require 50 balls per day 17. M: 50 balls per day! - Oh sorry sir 5 balls per day 18. M: So you are talking abt leather ball or tennis ball - Sir leather ball for sports complexes and tennis one for local cricket. 19. M: What is the full form of CAA - Sir its Citizen Amendment Act 20. M: What does it say? - Sir its an Amendment Act which says that people belonging to six religions who in minorities in neighbouring countries can settle in India more conveniently after following certain procedures. 21. M: Okk Why it is that the oil production from Cauvery Basin is intermittent but it is good and stable from KG Basin - Sir first thing is that the formation in southern Indian is very difficult to drill. Second is that land acquisition is comparatively difficult in Tamil Nadu for drilling as compared to AP. Also Kakinada which is near to KG Basin can prove to be Next Mumbai High and the development is going on. 22.

M: What is the future of Shale Gas in India? - Sir Shale Gas is great but it requires huge money and infrastructure. Right now it is difficult to drill Shale Formation in India because of lack of infrastructure. 23. M: What would be the break even cost of Shale Gas in market? - Sir thats a very difficult question for me to answer. At present it costs us around $30 per barrel to drill and we sell at around 49$. But if I want to guess break even point for Shale Gas then I would go for around 60$. 24. M: Ok thats from our side. Please show us your CAT admit card. - Sorry sir it was not mentioned in any mail to keep admit card. I have only Adhar Card and other documents with me at present 25. F: Ok no problem its just a formality. It was nice talking to you. You may now leave the call - It was pleasure Mam. Thank You Overall I felt the interview was stressfull. The faculty didn’t smile throughout the process except at the end of the interview. The probability question went bad and my approach was totaly wrong. The guesstimate also I think did not go well. Other than that I tried to answer well. It was a long interview (more than half an hour) and in the middle I felt that I am the only candidate today for them( they had total 10 people in second half).
