6. Format of the Interview:

For non-sponsored full time candidates, the GATE score will have 70% weightage, and the interview will have 30% weightage.
The interview committee will typically have at least 2-3 faculty members from the computer science department.
They will ask you questions primarily in these 4 areas: basic mathematics (probability, transcendental functions),
basic computer science (data structures, binary numbers,...), data structures/algorithms, and computer systems
(OS + programming languages + architecture). Optionally, they might ask you questions from your area of choice
such as DBMS or Networks. You can leave after your interview. The results will be put up on the department's website (and the admissions
portal) at a later date.

Note that the interview is a very technical exercise. You will be asked to solve challenging problems in the
four aforementioned areas. Please come with adequate preparation. A good idea would be to go over all the material
taught in the first 2-3 years of a typical undergraduate course. You can also look at resources on the web for
sample questions and tutorials.
