DRDO Admin Assitant English Typing Post Code 0502 Interview Questions 2011

Hi guys last month I have given interview for the Admin Asst.(Eng Typing) post in DRDO . The interview was held at  Jodhpur , Rajasthan and the Post Code  was 0502. There were 7 officer in interview room.


Please note that this is my interview as I've just finished my 12th so the question is based on that. There were many students I also asked them about the interview and I figured out that they were asking the questions mainly from the subjects that you have studied like if you have done B.A then they will ask questions from history,economics etc, if you have pass 12th from science then they will ask physics, math etc .



I am just posting questions that were asked to me.

1. What do you know about DRDO?
2. What is the Economic Capital of India?
3. What was the old name of delhi?
4. Full form of PIN and PAN number.
5. Size of A4 size paper that used in printer, I mean measurment.
6. What is spam folder in mail.
7. What is pc viruses. How we generally protect our pc from them? Name some antiviruses.
8. What is the value of Sin210 (trigonometry) ? Draw on paper.
9. what is the value of

10. Cosec square Ø + Sec square Ø is possible or not?
11.Recently launched missile by DRDO? (when this question asked at that time answer was agni IV)
12. What is the difference in Arjun and Brahmos? (1 is missile  & other is a tank)
13. Name some laboratory  in Delhi DRDO headquarter?

In the last they  asked  Tell something about yourself. Then one of them ask , You know that we can post you anywhere in india, are you prepared for it ?


This interview was easy as i gave it so i know it.But that not mean that all interview that held on that day for same post were easy as i said earlier question were asked according to your qualification. I saw some guys were very upset because there interview was bad. So prepared well for any exam or interview.

Don't be afraid face any interview with confidence . Best Of Luck for all exam that you will faced.

    1. They had given us a paper from which we have to type in computer and yes we can use delete,backspace etc. We had to type on MS word they have made a performa on MS Word in which first we have to fill our name, date etc.
      After completion of time they took out the print out of every typing test and took signature on it from candidates.

  16. Hello bro.. I want to ask you, Is the typing test tough?? I mean do you have to get atleast 35 w.p.m Can you plz explain?? Thank you in advance

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I told already in reply of rahul's question. By the way 35 wpm is requirement for qualifying. I suggest that practice by typing any paper/book page cuz I have seen that all guys do practice on typing tutor but in test u have to type from a paper/page. I remember some guys make mistake in typing as they forgot on which line they were and typed wrong line , after realising the error they deleted line n started typing again and wasted lot of time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. what u mean, you selected for interview but didn't faced interview ? or you asking for interview cut off? By the way if you are asking about cut-off for interview so i don't think their is any fix cut-off for it. It depends on how good you interview and what speed you got in typing test.

  34. Hi guys had a tough time during my interview in Jodhpur. I faced a panel of 5 officials. They asked all questions related to class 12 commerce like accounts and commerce which i had completely forgotten. It was simply not my day then they asked me questions related to my subject like Mass comm and all. Then worst was when one of them posed a maths question which was simply out of my scope. Gosh permutation and combination. I could answer simple questions due to nervousness like chief minister of Orissa and capital of Meghalaya.

    Then was the typing test which was only 37 wpm for me. I simple freezed there i don't know why?
    Guys just prepared wht u wrote in ur CV. They gonna ask that only and labs of your hometown. All the best. The results will be in July 2014

    Replies
    1. Hi jolly..that is okay. U just need 50 percent to pass the interview. U never know. For typing test 37 wpm is just fine, and u have qualified. More wpm does not mean that your merit would go up. So all the best buddy.

      Delete
  35. Thanks buddy for making me feel better as i had goofed even in history questions. This was so different than private company interviews and i came to know where i stand. Just hope for the best and do keep on postings your experiences in other interviews too.

    2. First of all be confident , it would be better if they ask you in English u reply in English cuz sometimes they just test us. And if you really can't do that then reply in hindi in confidence but don't be overconfident cuz it will be disrespectful, just be relax. Do not show that u r nervous cuz you are weak in English. By the way if you'll answer all the questions right it wouldn't be matter.
