How to crack an Interview for Christ University?

The interview is broadly divided into two types of categories: 

  • Objective questions 
  • Subjective questions

Know: How to Prepare and Ace Christ University Interview?

Objective Type Questions

Questions that have answers in a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ are considered objective-type questions. These questions are the questions that you can answer without any prior preparations. This type of question generally does not impact the scores of the interview.

Subjective Type Questions

These questions are important to score well in an interview. These questions require prior preparations before an interview. If you are not prepared well for subjective type questions then your answers would, most probably, not be that impactful and there is a higher chance of getting a rejection in the interview itself. 

Hence, it is suggested to prepare the following list of questions which are generally asked in Christ University interviews.

  • Q1-Tell me something about yourself?
  • Q2-Why do you want to pursue this course?
  • Q3-What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Q4-What do you know about the college?
  • Q5-How will you manage in a new city?
  • Q6-Why should we take you?
  • Q7-Why do you think you are appropriate for this course?
  • Q8-What do you know about the curriculum?

These questions are only to provide an idea about what type of subjective questions are asked during the interview to prepare them beforehand.

Obviously, these might not be the exact question or the series in which the interviewer will ask these questions. But these questions should be prepared before the interview as immediately answering these questions is sometimes not even possible or it could lead to an embarrassing situation as well.
