Hi, I have done Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and Master's in Construction Technology and Management. Both degrees from IITs (Indian Institute of Technology). I have qualified many national level examinations like N.T.S.E. (National Talent Search Examination), GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), where I scored All India Rank 2 in Mechanical Engineering Paper. I also had All India Rank 25 in IES (Engineering Services Exam) in India. My work experience includes working as Planning Engineer in Construction company, and 10 plus years of experience as teaching Mechanical Engineering. I am here to provide first hand experience to students as to what is how to get top ranks in Professional examinations. And also it is not only about written examination, one has show one's quality in the interview that follows. In many PSUs the ratio of interview is 7:1, that is, for one seat 7 candidates are called for interview. So student has to prepared for that scenario also.
