ISRO Scientist/Engineer SC -Interview


I got into isro too. Basically, I am mad about science. And to become a scientist is my child hood dream. I applied on line for this isro Scientist/Engineer SC post on March. I got the notification from job opportunity section of isro web site. Initially, they will conduct a screening based on your bio-data and select people for written test. Then if you clear the written test, they will call you for the interview.

Dearness Allowance (@23%)Rs. 4666
HRA : 30% ie. 6202

I choose trivandrum test center and for joining i preferred Bangalore in online application ( since i am from ECE, and they do most of the electronics work in Bangalore :) )

Written test:

As expected they called me for the written test. It was on 28 April. For ECE, questions are mainly from basic electronics, micro controllers, LIC, Network theory, and very few questions from OS. Don’t worry, they will ask only very basic questions. Out of 80 I could answer almost 60 questions.

They declared test result in web site within two weeks. My interview date was 27 Th June. One more week passed and I didn’t receive interview call letter. i send a mail to rpc@isro.gov.in. Surprisingly, I got the reply within a day. They gave a link to download the call letter in case of not receiving a hard copy.

prior to Interview:

Some guys who attended the interview said they will ask for your favorite subject. So I prepared communication engineering for that.

I went to Trivandrum a day before the interview so that i can stay with my friend who is working in isro in the same post. According to him following are the pleasant and unpleasant facts about isro.
:) It has got one of the excellent libraries in India.
:) Permanent job, so much freedom.
:) Scope for continuing your studies.
:)no tension. Friendly work environment..

:( If you are planning for an excellent career, isro is not a nice place. It is like any other govt job. you can come to the office, and if you want you can simply sit.
:( isro holds the 7th place among 7 countries who invest in space research.
:( Internal politics.
:( Most of the projects done here is just a copy of what others did.
:( isro cannot prevent brain drain. Many isro people jump to good companies after 4 -5 yrs.

For me, none of these cons are important for selecting my career. So I decided to go ahead.

Interview:
It took around 20- 25 minutes. The panel is having 9 or 10 scientist. The senior scientist sitting at the middle asked most of the questions. We will be standing in front of a board where we have to draw diagrams if asked. I remember some of the questions.

> Shamsudheen, which subject you have prepared?
-communication engineering.
He asked many questions from transmission line characteristics, stub matching, wave guides, etc. I said what these things are. But he asked to tell basic concepts like why there is only TE or TM mode in wave guide and not TEM.
I know very little about transmission lines. I asked him to change the topic.
Then they asked questions generally from electronics basics like
> what is modulation?
> different kinds of modulation
> draw the circuit if demodulator
> what is the output of not gate for sine wave input?
> how to shift a sine wave up or down?
> different kinds of modulation

They asked about my project.I did my project in Wipro technologies, Basically it is a java based application to control multi-functional printer networks. Maybe because, it is in java they didn’t ask questions from the project.
Also they asked if I have any other offer and in which company. I said bosch.

After Interview:

I thought I spoiled my interview with that transmission lines part. Still I had some hope. I joined bosch in July and isro published the result in July last week. Woo… I got selected. :)

i saw some people in bosch who jumped from isro. One of my colleague in bosch, Danish also got in to isro this time. He got a mail from one of his friends working in isro regarding the nature of work in isro.Click here to read.

  1. hey can u tell me about medical standards of isro………i hve been selected but very much tense about medical……..is it necessary to pass medical test….

  2. I am a final yr student of ECE. Can you please guide me if possible. You said they conduct a screening test after seeing your biodata. so can you tell me the exact procedure to enroll.

  3. @ Shishir,

    Sorry for the late reply. Don’t worry man, one of my friend already has completed medical test. It is a regular medical examination for group A gazetted post. not like a military medical examination.

    @ Archna
    i think initial screening is based on marks only. i think they will conduct this only if there is too many applicants. i coul find people having even 67 percent for the interview. But according to my friend in ISRO, interview will be harder for them.

  4. Congrats dude! Did you have a color vision exam during the medical test? You know the test where they show you colored circles on a sheet which traces out a number, the tech name is Ishihara’s test.

  5. hii….i want to join isro.
    i m final year ece student
    my area of interst is microwave anteena and radar
    can anyone send me detail of isro test?
    wat the procedure for enrollment?

  7. congratulations for selecting in to isro ,i am e.c.e student ,can you please tell me the procedure how to enroll for the exam

  8. @sourabh & rajasekhar
    thanks dudes, sorry for the late reply.check any notification on isro web site- job opertunities page. usually dey call freshers during jan-feb periode.
    application will be online.there will be a preferance to select centre to join. most of the electronics work is done in bangalore-isac.
    test will be in may. questions are from ur basics on ur discipline only. during interview,they ll ask for ur favourite subject. i think they ll consider this while alloting department. all the best and prepare well.

    @rajan
    as far as i know,BCA alone is not enough for this post. refer the job oppertunities page check every notification.if BCA is not sufficient, u can go for btech.otherwise they ll select people from disciplines like environmental science,agriculture,forestry etc in to remote sensing application field.

  9. hii.. im final year student of BE mech..and wanted to join isro, before reading this blog.now it luks like isro is a typical government low paying job..where there is no pressure on u to work.i want to do sum real work which is not a copy of others,which has innovation,nd there is scope to progress..not just a steady and stable job.are there kind of projects or posts which can serve my desire..pls reply..
    abhinav

  10. @ Abhinav,
    I am really sorry to make such an impression about isro from my blog. when i wrote it, all i know is a person’s(who is working in isor) opinion about isro. now, i finished my 1st month in isro. during training i met wonderful personalities who dedicated a large portion of their life for our space programme. also visited few facilities including,sriharikota, inertial systems, VSSC, TERLS etc. as i learn more and more about isro, am irresistably falling in love with isro. This is such a wonderful place for deriving job satisfaction. if you don’t want to make money as TATA and Birla are making, and need a challenging, inspiring, Scientific/Engineering career in india, ISRO is a best place.
    All the best and wish you a greate career ahead.

  11. i want to serve isro .becoz i have great interest in this field . so what i will do suggest me

  12. it is excellent that you have decided joined ISRO. Young people like you will take us where no human has ever been before! I am glad that you are now very happy in your job. Recently I wrote an article on Chandrayaan and how we have been paying low salaries to our scientists. I would very much appreciate getting your comments on that.

    Also I would like to interview you on my blog. Let me know if you would like that. My email lvs004_AT_gmail_dot_com

  13. Hello Sir…Congratulations for ur acheivement…I am doing my B.Tech final year in stream of BIOMEDICAL engineering(Instrumentation) from JNTU university. i supposed to do a project in my final year for 4 months and i am interested in doing a project in ISRO.So, can u please guide me for my career aspect in dealing with final year project.
    Thanking you sir

    Thanking you

  16. hi
    i ve been called for written test for isro this month dated 28th dec..but i do not ve any placement papers or details regar ….can any1 send me d same…

  17. Dear sir, im extremely Happy to find such a useful blog, which has both experiences of individuals and info about ISRO! Congrats sir! im doing my 3rd year B.Tech I.T, its my dream to get placed in ISRO. should i do my PG? Because everytime i see for the job of scientist/engineer its always denoted temporary. Should i do my M.E to get a sustainable job in ISRO? If so, which stream can i chose? Should i take up any exams like GATE, UPSC etc…? Kindly guide me… Thank you…

    • @Gowtham
      you can get into isro without a PG. but if you have a PG, chances are more for you to get a department which is related to your specialization. ie. you can do your PG in your favorite subject if you want your career in it.

      Also M-tech people will be considered for first promotion after 2 years of service. in case of B-techs, it is 4 years. don’t worry about the term temporary in advertisement. initially all posts have a probation period of 1 yr. after that they will make it permanent for sure unless you did something terribly wrong like got charged in a criminal case.

  18. Thank you sir. What about exams like GATE, UPSC?… Is it compulsory to take up those exams? Will they add up to our eligibility criteria?… Kindly guide me sir… I would be pleased if you mail me so that i can keep in touch with u :-)

  19. Dear sir, Best Wishes! Im a B.Tech I.T graduate, i want to apply for ISRO. Before that Can i know what programming languages they expect from freshers? Any specific software skills needed? Are they developing any softwares or what kind of work will IT dept guys like me will get? Could you Pls help me out?

  20. Dear sir, best wishes! Im a B.Tech I.T graduate and i wanted to apply for ISRO. Can you Pls say what are the basic programming languages that are expected for freshers in ISRO, from cs branch students? Any specific software skills required? In ISRO are they preparing any softwares, or what kind of job IT graduates will be given? Kindly help me. Thank u

  21. @Gowtham,
    it is not compulsory to take up such exams, but if you hav a good gate score, it will help you during the interview (they ask everyone about the GATE score). so all the best, prepare well.
    @Menon
    some areas which i am aware of where CS people work are control system, tool development etc.from a fresher, they expect nothing more than a good basic knowledge in your stream and a right attitude. wish you the very best.

  22. Thank you sir, can you provide me any useful blogs or sites which provides updated info on ISRO recruitment &placement papers? I tried a lot, but could find only mechanical, ECE papers but not CS dept papers. Also if u know, provide me with any community or groups specially off ISRO scientists or ISRO freshers????

  40. i would like to know whether a person with B.Tech in EC can apply for post for CS in ISRO as i have studied many concepts of CS while training for an IT company..and i know how to code in Java and C..Is it mandatory that one has to have a degree in CS to apply for post in CS..Hope u can clear my doubt??

  41. I’m an electrical engineering graduate. I want to make research on Space as iam very much interested on space. Due to less percentage(59.59%) in my B.Tech, I couldn’t apply for various isro posts, which has been hurting me a lot..kindly,let me know the path through which i can get the entry into isro where i can serve my country…

    waiting for your reply dude!!!!!!!

  44. Hi,
    I have a very fundamental doubt. What does SC occurring at the end of Scientist/Engineer stand for? To put things straight, does it place restriction on the applicants on the basis of caste. Sorry, if I sounded too foolish. :)

    • Dear All
      isro has announced their 2009 recruitment. visit the following link
      for application form and more information.

      http://www.isac.gov.in/CentralBE/advt.jsp

      @ Ranga.
      There are 8 posts for scientists in ISRO. the order of seniority is C, D, E, F, G, H, Distinguished Scientist, and Outstanding Scientist. they will give the promotion based on eligibility ( not based on vacancy).

      @ Geethanjali
      Don’t worry about % much. They will call most of the candidates with % > 65. Prepare well in ur basics. I wish u all the best :)

      @Thejo Kishan
      Thanks dude. They will ask questions from basic topics in ur stream. so prepare well from basics. Also aterials for gate prepaeration also will help you. I guess some questions are available in freshersworld.com

      @sandy.
      There is no nontechnical questions.

      @Manas
      You cannot write CS test. However you can mention your interests during interview. Surely they will consider it. in isro it is always better if you have knowledge in multiple disciplines.

  45. hi..

  59. Dear Sir,
    I want to know about the screening criteria as isro has mentioned in their website this means if a personis satisfying the eligibility criteria even then there is no surity that whether he/she would be given a call for written exam, plz also tell me the cut-offs for electronics branch.

    • Hi friends,

      lot of you have questions about CS test pattern. so i asked my friends from CS background. Here is one reply i got.

      Learn all d core papers from LSD in S3 C language data structures algorithmic complexity networking etc … learn all core subjects … datz d key …. or refer gate syllabus …. i think dey follow dat syllabus but questions r of lower standard ..i mean easier dan GATE u wll get only enuf time to answer but no negative marking …. so hav an idea of everything n u wll get thru …

      Any one who is having a Btech can apply for one of the test in EC,CS or Mech which is related to your Btech stream.

  60. sir, plz also tell me the syllabus for electronics branch as it is not mentioned in thier website and some good books/study material required to crack this exam.
    do reply

  61. @Chaitanya
    Don’t worry much about selection for written test. most of the candidates with more than 65% can write the test.
    topics for ece can be found from this post itself (it is discussed many times here).

    • Here is the freshersworld link to ISRO papers
      http://www.freshersworld.com/placementweek/company.asp?cid=122
      I am sorry that i don’t know more about the syllabus than discussed here.
      @Chaitanya
      I had 75%. I didn’t mean to say there is a safe mark. I felt like they have a preference over good academics, ranks etc. What is your %?
      @Piya
      Minimum % required is 65. Don’t worry about ur specs. its not a problem. Keep ur passion for our country high. Don’t forget to update your skills, knowledge etc. keep working for a brighter India. All the best.
      @Rony
      you can apply for CS exam. As I already said, Candidates from almost every B-tech stream can write one of the EC, CS, and Mech test. But you cannot apply for the test which is not related to ur stream. for eg, IT or CSE cannot apply for EC

  65. sir can we send the dd via speed post !!!!!!!!!!!!

    highly confused sir as in website its written that u need to send it via ordinary post

  66. Sir,
    I have done 3-year MCA from a reputed University with 68% marks after doing B.Sc. in Physics(Hons.). Am I eligible to appear in the Computer Science stream of this exam? Is it equivalent to B.E. in CS? If yes, then which option should I select in the online application form? Plz kindly reply Sir. Eagerly waiting for your reply.

  67. sir I would be very grateful if u elaborate on the important ECE subjects and the names of sme good books which are meant for preparation of techinical exams like ISRO for ECE branch.Sorry Sir if I am troubling you a lot.

Will i be eligible to apply for the latest notification from ISRO for (mechanical)? After my diploma thru campus, i was working with L&T for 8 years (engg & design & const & project management & IT), and later i joined capgemini on pure IT consulting SAP logistics.

I’ve applied for Scientist post and I’ll be writing the test on 26th april because getting into a central organization have always been my dream and morever getting into ISRO is a high priority dream because of its challanging domain and chance of me working in MCF, Hassan, Karnataka which is my native place :) I’m getting around 82k/month here but still I want a peaceful life and more time for personal life.

    I’ve one query. I just want to know if ISRO calls for experienced people also like how HAL and other organizations call for 3 years experienced people,etc. Thanks in advance for your reply and time..

  120. I am a EEEian & `ve recently applied for ISRO’s “Scientist/Engineer SC – Electronics” examination. I am just wondering whether ISRO provides separate sets of question papers for candidates from different core disciplines in UG? or, A same set of question paper will be provided to all candidates appearing for Electonics stream, irrespective of their core disciplines in UG?

    I’m in a sort of a little dilemma to select the core areas for my exam preparation.

    “As both EEE & ECE are inter-related in many aspects, Should I go with preparing the core subjects of EEE’s (like: Electrical Machines, Power Systems, Electrical and Electronic Measurements, Power Electronics and Drives, etc) or that of ECE’s (like: Electronic Devices, Analog Circuits, Digital circuits, Signals and Systems, Communications, etc)?”

    Simply put, should my preparation be focussed on GATE ECE or on GATE EEE?

    Thank you in anticipation.

  121. hai,

  153. sir, i had applied for isro scientist post (mechanical) 2009 …i have an aggregate of 66%…though eligibility is 65%, but when i checked status yesterday, it shows Im not shortlisted for the written test… last december i had written the test for same scientist position ….even i checked my friends who have got 70% and above … it shows d same as not shortlisted ….so wat should i do…

  154. Hello Sir,
    I am a final year student from Industrial Engineering, Nagpur. I have applied for the post of mechanical and I have got a call for written test. I wanted to ask you… whether Industrial people get different paper because we never learnt the mech subjects in depth. Moreover, I also want to know is it a disadvantage for industrial pple applying for mech post as we are not much into this core if mech.

  155. Shamzu, man you doing a great job. Many many thanks for your efforts in writing the blog and most importantly for following up with replies to all the queries.

    My query:

    (Subject) I’m a B.E Aeronautical Engineer from Anna University, passed out in 2008 with aggregate score of 82%. Now, almost an year has passed. How bright are my chances of getting selected?

    (Optional) I got placed in a software concern, which is serving airline industries with custom made softwares. But the company hasn’t inducted me yet, nor it has given me a solid date of joining. So, I done almost nothing but waited for almost an year now and lost hope in that company.

  156. hi
    i am final year engg (ECE) student
    can you tell me in which subjects of electronics and communication isro exam will mainly concentrate
    will there be qquestions from gk and apptitude

  157. Dear Shamzu,

    I like to know whether there are questions on Mathematics or only from the core subjects. If there are questions on mathematics then in what ratio of the core questions

    Please reply me soon.
    My exam date is 26 April, 2009

    plz reply soon.

  160. Thanks Shamzu.

    One more thing, since I’m an aeronautical guy I have very little clue about the difficulty level of the interview questions; I couldn’t judge from the list of questions that you’ve mentioned as been asked to you.

    Are they very basics from ECE? Can one generalize roughly as: They ask questions from the subjects studied during the first year of Engineering?

  161. Hai,

    Thanks a lot for your info reg ISRO.
    i got admit card for Written exam on Apr 26th 2009.

    Hope to crack thru the exam.

    will meet you soon.

    regards,
    Sangeetha

  162. Hi Shamzu,
    Do you have any idea about the approx no of vacancies?? Is the final selection based on total marks of written plus Interview.??? Or is it so that the written is only qualifying exam…

    Thanks yaar.

  163. I do like to know how many vacancies are there for SC scientist for computers people.

    Please reply soon

  164. @ Shamzu

    Yesterday we took the exam, it was pretty competitive and also most of the bits are from GK publishers, ne way we hav to wait for the results

  165. could somebody post the answers of the test that took place on 26th april 2009????
    it would help many ppl to rate their chances of getting shortlisted.

  166. Shamzu,

    Any idea when the results of the written exam held on 26th April ’09 be out??

    Regards,
    Anita

    • They usually announce results in two weeks. This time they will take more people (i guess almost double the number ).

  167. Can u tell me what will be the cutoff for selecting for interview?(last time)
    If i selected for interview whether they will consider written marks for final selection??

  168. Sir,which one is to be entered in the online application form,CGPA or percentage marks? And is there any options for entering whether the candidate is Bachelor or Masters degree holder? Waiting for your kind reply.

    • @Jayanta
      you an enter percentage. If you are appearing for test, i think there is no option to specify your master degree. but you can mention it during interview.

  183. My question is for Dinendran.

    Hi, nice to hear that you got selected for ‘graduate apprenticeship’ in VSSC. Can you tell me how you got it? Procedure to apply for it? Please…..’

    • Hi Ghalif,

      Check out for notifications in the VSSC site or other job seeking sites(freshersworld etc).
      Every year annual recruitment for the same is present.
      The selection is for I year and no critical bond is there. The shortlisting will be on the basis of marks u score in the qualifying exam ie B Tech/BE . Reservation is also there(caste).

      Normally the notification will come on October-Nov-Decmbr.

      Stipend: Rs 5000/mnth(Graduate apprntce) [Qual :BE]
      Stipend: Rs 3000/mnth(Technician apprntce) [Qual :Diploma]
      . No other allowances.
      Transportation within the city(TVM) free of cost.
      Food : relaxation is there.

  184. Thanks so much Dinu. Will that be applicable only for freshers(in the sense, is it only for the immediate batch outta college or even be applicable for students who passed a year before?)

  185. and also should have NO previous relevant exprnce/any other training under Apprtnceship act

  186. where to get my isro results for the post of sc.. test was conducted on april 26..
    tell me site that gives the result..

    • @sruthi
      Thank you very much for asking a question not related to ISRO interview (not that i don’t want to see questions related to interview ;) ).
      By the way sync filters are used in various image restoration methods in imaging satellites.

      @Azhar
      Do you have a Btech or BE? If so, after having few years experience they will consider you for a promotion to Scientist/Engineer category. Don’t know exactly how many years it will take.

      @All
      I think you will get some idea about interview from this post itself. i’ll try to write a post about interview when i get some time.

  187. hai i am abhilash i have cleared the isro test.can u tell me how to prepare for the interview?

  188. hi sir,
    i want to know about the interview center..
    i m frm delhi..

  191. Hi Shamzu,

    I am a mechanical graduate. i am called for interview for ISRO scientis C in last week ot this month. It is my childhood dream to be a space scientist and i have a 400 X telescope also. Problem is that i am having partial colour blindness and also i am a kidney transplanted person.
    do i stand any chance of geeting selected finally or my medical condition is a disqualification. Waiting for your kind reply……

    • @Ashutosh
      don’t worry too much about medical test. It is not a big deal (not like in the case of army or things like that). prepare well for the interview. if you want, contact isro people for further clarification. wish you the very best.

  192. thanks shamzu , thanks very much.
    i will prepare for interview well.
    ya i will see how isro ppl can be contacted on it.
    thanks again. ur message is a big confidence booster.

  193. are the interviews conducted based on written test rank …or at random?
    any idea of number of posts and number of people shortlisted for interview..in ECE?

  194. are the interviews conducted based on written test rank, i mean calling better ranks first?

  195. thank u shamzu…for ur reply…..do u have any idea about number of vacancies VS number of shortlisted candidates for interview?

  196. thanq very much shamzu….
    my interview is on 30th of dis month at hyd….
    after how many days will the results be declared…?

  197. Hi Shamzu
    Is there any opportunity of getting a posting in REgional remote sensing centre at Kharagpur?
    Do they give choices of posting- say in Kharagpur?
    kindly reply..

    raja

  198. @raja
    you can give your preference during interview. Usually they give posting to a nearest center from your native.

  199. Sir,
    pls reply to my ques..
    I have posted many ques till now but did n’t get any reply..

    I could n’t manage to get shortlisted this time for”sc” post..do i need to wait for 1 more year or will there be any recruitment before december?

    pls reply

    • @ Sruthi
      Last year, there was 2 notifications for ‘SC’. Out of which one was applicable only for mech. Don’t know what is going to happen this year.

  203. Hi All,,

    can anyone tell me the type of work in ISRO..
    is it software or what?

    pls reply..

    Shamzu ,

    i have asking this question from so many days..

    pls answer me …pls

    • @hasini
      as you can guess, isro is a multi-disciplinary organization. We work in various engineering areas including mechanical, electronics, computer science, chemical, etc.

  204. hi shamzu,,
    i need to attend interview in ece on 30th of dis month at hyd..
    I did a mistake while entering marks in the online application. My first year marks i have entered 952 instead of 951.that was totally a counting mistake. I am unaware of dat till yesterday. wil der be any problem.?
    Please help me..i am very tensed ….
    please reply me…

    • @vinod kumar
      Even I did the same mistake last time and i asked them about it. It is not an issue. Before interview they will give few forms to fill and verify your mark sheets. There you can give the correct mark sheets. If you have enough marks above the cut off, there won’t be any problem.

  205. than q very much shamzu…my b.tech first year marks were wrongly entered…
    i am totally tensed and unable to prepare for interview..now i am very happy…
    tan q very much…

  206. hi shamzu,
    when wil the results be declared..interviews are der on 16th of july also..mine is on 30th of dis month..
    i am asking dis because we have to pay fee for m.tech as second option..
    please reply shamzu..

  207. hi shamzu,
    can u please reply for the above question on results…because many of us need to join m.tech..if we r not selected for isro…please reply shamzu….

  208. hi shamzu…
    i got call letter for interview today…it was clearly mentioned that there should be no changes in the marks entered. and if any mistake is found they will not be interviewed…i have the same problem what vinod above has said…i too have mistakenly entered one of the semester marks but it is only one mark. please reply shamzu…please…

    • In my interview call letter also it was clearly mentioned like that. But I also accidently entered the wrong marks.
      But they said, they will disqualify you in case if you showed more marks to bypass the cut off. In my case I had enough marks above the cut off. So there was no problem. They corrected the forms before my interview.
      I guess you guys have enough marks. ;) .

  209. ok…then how to approach them regarding dis issue….should i reveal them before interview or reveal only if they ask me..?
    any way can u explain what are the steps on interview day?
    please

  210. Hi,

    I got a call letter too. I wanted to ask you this:

    When they say that we have to bring attested xerox copies of transcripts, do they mean we have to sign on them??? Or do they mean that we have to get those from the university ???

    Things run slow during vacations. So I am worried I might not get the attested copies in time from the university.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best.

  211. Hey Shamzu, I am selected for interview this year….can u plz tell me about the number of posts for computer science engineers…..wht is the selection ratio in the interviews??

  212. Sir,

    I recieved a letter from ISRO for interviews(scientist/engineer-c computer science),just passed out this may….

    in the letter it is mentioned that “you need to leave current employment if selected”….

    i am also having offer from a software company where i am joining in july i am not sure whether i will leave that company in case i am selected at isro ….

    i want to know that is it binding to join in case you are selected…

    please reply as soon as possible so that I can make a decision.

    thanks in advance..
    waiting for your reply

  213. hello sir , firstly thanks for ur support n guidance….

    sir i m bit confused about filling a column in bio data form…sir i am 2009 pass out.. so my final sem result is awaited..

    when i filled web application for the post, my 7th sem result was not out so upto sixth sem i had scored 78.9% and i filled six sems marks only

    but now as my 7th sem result is out , now my average percentage upto 7th sem is 78.3 .. so should i write 78.3% in form (i.e. including the marks of 7th sem) or 78.9% which i filled in web application..

    sir pls reply and solve my query

  214. hi all,
    my interview is on 30th this month at channi.
    I am final year computer science student can you please help me to prepare for interview .
    when they’ll announce the results of the interview

  215. hi shamzu..
    what is the difference between the columns SPECIALIZATION and SUBJECTS in bio data..form.?

  216. sir,
    i’m from mechanical engineering and selected 4 d interview which is on 13th july in kolkata.but i’v already sent the first semester fees to iit kanpur for m.tech programme and got admission there.u’v written above dat one can continue his studies while working in isro.now,what does this actually mean?my classes in iit kanpur will start 4m 27th july and i’ll leave my place on 19th july.they take nearly one month for the declaration of the final selection.so i’v decided to continue my classes at kanpur for that one month and if i get the job,i’ll join it.but if i won’t join immediately,can i continue my m.tech holding the job in hand?working in isro is my childhood dream and i can’t let the oppurtunity go if i get the job..but i also want to hold an m.tech degree from some renowned institution like iit.does isro permit higher studies to its employees?please give some suggestions..

    • @ayan
      isro will send you for m-tech only after a minimum of 4 years. If you already have a seat in iitk in a subject you are interested in, my personal opinion is to join iit. After 2 years you can consider joining isro. You will have a better chance for getting selected and to get a posting in a closer area to your subject.

  217. my ISRO and BARC interview at the same date…so there is any procedure to change date…plz reply

      • Did you have a color vision exam during the medical test? You know the test where they show you colored circles on a sheet which traces out a number, the tech name is Ishihara’s test. Please reply to this query as soon as possible.

      • hi shamzu…
        my interview is finished on 30th….
        many people who got m.tech and joined in iit’s came for interview…
        if they dont accept the offer from isro…i mean if they dont join even though they get selected…will there be any waiting list….?
        please reply….

      • @Amarnath
        Ya, there was waiting list last year. How was your interview? please post your interview experience if you can. That will be helpful for others. All the best. :)

      • my interview lasted for 30 minutes….questions were on fav subjects..
        i said image processing, digital electronics, and communicaitons..
        they r very cool…
        i could not answer 2-3 questions…
        but image proc. part i did wel..
        then DE part i could not do well..
        then they asked satellite questions…
        i did well…..
        do u think i have any chances?

      • Last year they finished the interviews in June itself and release the results in August.

        well, from your description of your interview, I think, you have pretty good chance! :)

        All the best.

      • hi shamzu..

        interviews are going to be finished by 17th of dis month……

        when can we expect results?

        i mean can we get by august first week?

      • Hello everybody…

        I am a 2008 Mumbai university-Mechanical passout…I’m postin my interview for u..It was on 13th july @ SAC, Ahmedabad..I was called @ 11 but, my interview began @ 4.15..Hope it makes an interesting read 4 non-mech guys too..

        I entered d room and the panel asked me to sit down..
        Seeing the Biodata, dey asked me my project title..I said”Design of Parabolic Collector”..The person in the middle said”We’ll come bak 2 it later..”(but never actually did!)..Then he said”Tell me bout ur job..”
        I said dat I’m workin in a Pressure Vessel Designin company..
        Panel : U design pressure vessels for whom?
        Me : Chemical industries.
        Panel : what r ur favourite subs?
        Me : My current job is my area of interest..design and finite element analysis..
        Panel : Please get up and draw a horizontal pressure vessel with supports.
        I drew it on the board with saddle supports..
        Panel : Where wil b the maxm stress?
        Me : At the horn of d saddle..
        Panel : Why?
        Me : Xplained..
        Panel : What is d formula for calculatin stress at horn?
        Me : I dont remember the xact formula sir since we use softwares.
        Panel : Wat if u dont hav softwares? On wat wil it depend?
        Me : I thought for sum time..The panel was about 2 move on 2 next ques wen I drew the Bendin Moment diagram and told dem dat d stress will depend on the moment at the saddle cross-section..
        Panel : Dat was wat we were lukin for..But d formula?
        Me : I don remember sir..But if it fails at horn, we provide a stiffener in the plane of d saddle or 2 stiffeners adjacent 2 the saddle..
        Panel : Ok..sit down..Wat code do u use?
        Me : ASME Section 8-div1 and Div 2 (for high pressures)
        Panel : Ok..U must b designin flanges for nozzles..How do u arrive at d required bolting (boltin area)?
        Me : Xplained 2 dem the procedure which involves two cases (operatin and gasket seatin)..
        Dey seemed satisfied wid my ans..
        Panel : Wat bout Bolt material?
        Me : SA-193
        Panel : Why? wat is d criterion?
        Me : Sir, the bolts shud fail earlier than d flange..So, the allowable bolt stress shud b less than dat of flange..
        Panel : Ok..wat bout materials for Pressure Vessels?
        Me : Carbon steel or stainless steel…
        Panel : No..v r nt askin u dat..wat r d criterin for material selection..
        I was confused for sum time as 2 wat dey were xpectin..One of d panel members asked again.
        Me : Strength, Ductility, Machinability, Cost..
        Panel : But dere is no formula 2 arrive at required ductllity..
        Me : Sir, It depends on the process and xperience of d engineer…
        Panel : Ok..Wat if the shape of d pressure vessel u hav drawn on d board (it was cylindrical) is changed 2 spherical?
        Me : Sir, the required thickness will b reduced 2 half..I Xplained d reason..I also mentioned dat thogh the required thk reduces, fabrication of d same is difficult..
        One of d members nodded..
        Panel : Ok..Where will max stress occur in spherical vessel?
        Me : Sir, It wil b d same evrywhere since we hav uniform section..and a little bit higher value of stress @ the support location.
        Panel : U hav the vessel with convex side bulgin outwards..can it be inside? Hav u ever designed such a vessel?
        Me : Yes, It can b..But, I havent designed such a vessel.
        Panel : wat difference wil it make?
        Me : Sir, Higher thickness requirement due 2 stress concentration..
        Panel : r u sure?
        Me : Yes
        Panel : Hav u seen spray bottles where d convex side is inwards?
        Me : Yes sir, but dunno d reason.
        Panel : Wat do u think is a beter design?
        Me : Convex side outwards, since it is closer 2 spherical shape which is d ideal shape for a pressure vessel..
        One of the members nodded.
        Panel : I now place the spherical vessel in sun, wat wil be d temp rise?
        Me : I told the incident rediation correctly..800 W/m^2 x projected area..
        Den I dint rply..One of d members told me 2 say watever i ws thinkin..He asked wat we do in such cases?
        I said-equate it 2 sumthin like m Cp (temp diff)..he said i was thinkin on currect lines..I began thinkin again 4 sum tym, but dint rply..He asked again..n I replied d same..He said – okok..leave it..
        Panel : Sit down..wat if dere is vaccuum inside the vessel?
        Me : Sir, we will hav 2 design for external pressure..
        Panel : Wat stress will b dere? n how do design?
        Me : Compressive stress..The design wil b basically 4 bucklin..
        So, We will calculate the critical length, n ensure dat the unsupported length is less dat dis critical length by placin Stiffeners..
        One of the members nodded..
        Panel : Ok, U may leave..

        Wat do u think, Shamzu?
        I think I answered 70-80 % of their ques..
        Do I stand a chance?

      • @Shamzu
        How much it will take to get the joing date once the results are announced.In my present company , i have a notice period of 3 months
        excluding leaves. so 2 months will do…..so if by any chance …if i miss the date of joining.. will they give extra time?

      • some of the members of isro orkut community called isro hq and they came to know that result will be announced on 17th august….

        so best of luck.. pray for all of us

      • hi jst cmpltd my gradaton n CS.I want t bcum a scientist in ISRO…nd iam planning to take Btech.Which stream should i need to take in Btech for being a scientist???
        pls giv me rply…

  218. sir,
    i m from B.E mechanical and want to join isro…could u please help me by guiding the way.
    what to prepare on?
    any particular book to refer?
    what a mech engg has to do there(kind of job)?

  219. Hi shanthu…

    I am going to complete mtech this year. In INTERVIEW whether they will ask mtech course work or btech course work or mtech project(1.5 years).

  220. Hi shamzu,
    Is there any VLSI kind of work in ISRO.I want to know as my specialization is in VLSI so that I can ask them during the interview.

  221. i’ve been called for interview for isro on 14th july.
    they’ve asked for b.tech. project. my project work in b.tech. is not very big. it’s simple realization of filters in pspice.
    will this play against me?
    how much they consider the project work in selection?
    also i’ve 3 re-appears(now cleared). my college is also little known.
    how much will this all go against me?

    • Please don’t ask me how the interview going to be. I don’t have any idea about it. What i can say is how was my interview. And i almost said it completelety here.

      I feel if you have good knowledge in basics of your stream, this interview will be a piece of cake. Nothing else matters as much as basics.

  222. hi shamzu,

    my interview date is on july 1st at hyderabad.but i didnt get call letter till now.is it sufficient to take online status report to attending interview or is it mandatory to take original call letter????? if it mandatory then could you please tell me how to i get duplicate call letter for attending interview.please help me in this issue because there is only one week time for interview.

    • @sandeep
      last year sme thing happened to few of us. There was a link to download interview call letter in the page where test result is published. we used a printout of that call letter. Please check the results page again.

    • Did you get some information.
      I am also in the same condition.
      Tomorrow is my interview

  223. shamzu ,

    I got the interview call for Scientist SC Mechanical, I have been working with L&T for last two years. I want to enquire about the “In hand salary for the post”, “requirement of NOC from current employer” at the tme of interview, “which Division (Place wise)will be better for my technical growth at ISRO” & finally as you see that i’ve been far away from bookish studies for last two years, “what shud i prepare for interview” & will my work-ex will be beneficial for me at ISRO anyhow? reply awaited. Thanks.

    • @piyush
      In hand salary: around 31000 in bangalore (including all allowances).

      I am sorry. That is the only question i can answer from your queries.

    • @Abhishek
      I never heard of extending interview to next day. Probably it won’t happen. Last year they were even trying to finish the interviews early for candidates from far away places.

  229. Hi shamzu,
    hi everyone,

    I appeared for the interview (Mechanical ) on 29th june on delhi. i was the first candidate to be interviewed. 8-9 Scientists were in the committe. Senior most scientist started the interview. since i am Mtech they asked me about the subject taught in Mtech. then they asked about my Thesis(M.Tech). my interview lasted for abt 20-25 minutes and they mostly asked from my thesis only.
    I could answer abt 60% questions only. their reply was not very convencing so i think i have v slim chances of getting thru.
    BTech candidates were asked abt their fav subjects and projech. so guys, esp. mech guys if u r btech do prepare at least 1 fav subject and ur Btech project serouosly and throughly.

    Wish u all best

  230. sir i need ur suggestion its urgent……..
    my 8th sem result got out yesterday n i have my interview on 3rd july..

    • @Amit
      Don’t worry, you can mention that 8th sem results came very recently. If you cannot produce certificate, take a copy of internet result page. you can produce all the original certificates while joining.

    plz do help me.

    • Always tell the truth. It won’t make any problem. Anyway joining date will be after August. So they won’t mind if your bond will get over by August. All the best for your interview.

  236. Hi all,
    My interview is finished on 1 july in hyd.till 3.30 pm they are asked only basic questions from fav subject and project only.but after that they asked very tough questions from other than fav subject.my interview time was started at 4.00 pm.they didnt ask about my project alsothey are still 7 persons after my interview.they are also faced same problem.we 8 poeple confirmed we are not gone through interview.because they didnt asked even single basic question.we answed only lessthan 40%.
    so guys dont go with prep of only one subject.they may be asked from any subject.
    for me they asked enviromental science also. what is carbon credit ???? what is green house effect???
    .im from electronics branch.

    shmazu please tell me why they are asking like that???? upto 3.30pm they asking fav subject & project.but later they didnt asked???
    why its like that.they may be any criteria other than interview to gone through???? i mean are they give any preference in btech percentage????

    • @sandeep
      May be they were hurrying to finish the interview. Its ok, last time also some of us felt, we will never make it. But most of them are there with me now. Thanks for sharing your experience :) . I don’t know about the weightage of written test marks.
      All the best.

  237. shamzu ,
    is they any weightage of written test marks???? or they taking only interview marks
    ????

  238. Dear shamzu,

    can you please tell me the duration of training in isro and what type of training they give.

    thanks

  239. Hi Shamzu,

    Thanks for maintaining the very informative blog.

    I am a computer science guy with three years of experience in IT in C,C++ and Network Security. My interview will the tomorrow(4th July 2009) in Chennai. I will be definitely posting my interview experience tomorrow.

    If selected what are the technical areas CSE guys will work on? and which ISRO center they will be posted in?

    To All: Is there any guy who has attended the interview (CSE) this year, Please post your experience. so that lot of people can get help from it.

    • @Amba
      CSE people may get posted to any of the ISRO centres. Programming is now an essential part of almost every system. Especially in Control Engineering, digital systems etc.

      • Hi Shamzu,

        Thanks for your reply.

        My Interview :

        There were 8 people in the interview hall. They told to have a seat.
        The senior scientist asked me weather I feel comfortable if they ask questions in the subjects rather than on my experience, I told OK, no problem.

        They have started asking me with the question about my intersting subjects. My answer was OS and Network security.

        And the simple questions like
        What is time sharing system?
        Differences between Windows and Linux?
        what is virtual memory?
        On which basis & who will decide whether to use virtual memory?
        some page replacement algorithms?
        What are all the security measures you will take in a network?
        what is firewall? and types of firewalls?
        what is IPS?
        what is IDS?
        what is antivirus software?


        Differences between C& C++?
        When you will choose C / C++?
        asked to write syntax for opening a file in C? (write on the board)

        It went very smoothly.
        I have answered all. I felt very happy with the interview.

        When the results will be published and Where ..?

        Thanks

    q9. they give me a digital ckt on paper n told me to draw its output.

  241. Hi,

    Q1) Can you please shed some light on the specifics and nature of medical exam?

    Q2) Considering the fact that many posts on this blog have been either from ECE or CSE people and also the fact that last year the advt for mechanical stream was posted twice; would it be right to conclude that

    a) ISRO has a huge demand for mechanical engineers
    b) Number of applicants from mechanical stream is lesser in comparison with other two streams (less competition)?

    Thanks.

  242. hi,in biodata form may i write addresses of the persons who do not have any technical background,but they know my educational details since my childhood.

  243. sir first of all once again thanks for ur support….

  250. Hi,
    I’m attending interview on this friday, 17th July. I just completed my BE(Hons.) in Electronics & Instrumentation from BITS Pilani. I would like to know more specifically about what I’m gonna face there. I’ve just prepared a little bit in digital electronics & analog electronics. I’ll be so grateful if you gave me some tips.

    thanks a lot! :-)

  251. Dear Shamzu

    I am 2009 pass out from mechanical gave interview on 13th in Delhi.

    As i entered the room they said “do u & the last candidates used to sit together in the college?”. I said we are the room mates. Then they laughed & became friendly. They asked me abt fav subjects. I said Fluid machines, heat transfer. They started asking questions abt pump, its curves. after 5 min they moved to HT. they asked abt nucleate boiling & heat exchangers. after tht they asked abt Som which i have not prepared. In FM & HT almost all questions were answered. But in Som i was knowing only 2 out of 5.
    then they moved to project. They talked abt it for abt 4-5 min. Asked few questions abt it?
    Then they were happy & said “We really appreciate ur project work. It’s new idea & u must continue it where ever u do job.” At this I said “but, I must join ISRO” At this they laughed. & said “yaah, u have performed fine except SOM” & this they turned to my training which was in TCS(I think it would be -ve for me that being from mechanical i have done my training in software.). They asked abt my project in TCS.
    After asking it they said “thank u & you may go”

    Dear Shamzu Do i have any chance if I was able to answer only 65% questions.

  252. Hi All,

  258. hi shamzu,

    I am currently in my 4th year of B.E. I want to give ISRO exam next year. I am having eye-sight power of -5. I have heard that there is limitation on eye power in government organisations.
    Is there any limitation related to myopic eye-sight?
    Whether there is any limitation on vision?

  260. Hi..
    I am Vishakha Singh from Bikaner(Rajasthan). I just want to introduce you about my interview.
    My interview was held on 15th july. My reporting time was 11 am and i was called for the interview at about 12 noon. As i entered before my wish, the member sitting in the middle said me Good Afternoon Vishakha, so i also wish to all. Than he told me to take my seat and i said them thank you. There were 9 members in the panel. And my final interview was like it….
    1. INITIALLY THE MEMBER IN MIDDLE ASK ME ABOUT MY COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY.
    THEN HE ASK ME ABOUT MY AGGRIGATE PERSENTAGE OF B.E. I TOLD THEM THAT IT IS ABOUT 74% AND HE TOLD ME “VERY GOOD”.
    And one more thing was there that in beginning of the interview they ask me “ is it your first interview and i told them, it is my fourth interview. Than they ask me have u selected anywhere else, and i told them that yes i am selected in two companies, they ask me the companies name.
    2. THEN MY FINAL INTERVIEW STARTS:
    THEY ASK ME TO EXPLAIN ABOUT MY FINAL YEAR PROJECT IN SHORT. I EXPLAINED THEM ALL ABOUT THAT IN A SHORT DURATION. IT WAS BICYCLE OPERATED PUMP FOR DOMESTIC PURPOSE. THEN THEY ASK ME THAT HOW YOU CAN MEASURE THE POWER REQUIRED FOR A 40 KG PERSON TO OPERATE THE CYCLE. I TOLD THEM THE FORMULA BUT I DON’T THINK THAT THEY REALLY SATISFIED BY THAT.THAN THEY ASK ME HOW U CAN MEASURE THE SPEED OF THE FIRST SPROCKET IF STARTED FROM THE LAST . I GAVE THE ANSWER WITH FORMULA.
    3. NOW THE SECOND PERSON ASK ME ABOUT ONE QUESTION FROM KINETICS BUT I AM WEEK IN THAT SUBJECT SO I JUST SAY SORRY FOR THAT.
    4. ONE ANOTHER MEMBER ASK ME ABOUT MY FAVIOURATE SUBJECT. I TOLD THEM ABOUT THE FLUID MECHANICS AND THERMODYNMICS
    THEN THEY ASK ME WHAT IS LAMINAR FLOW. I TELL THEM THE ANSWER WITH THE FORMULA.
    THEN THEY ASK ME WHAT IS TURBULENT FLOW. I AGAIN GAVE THE ANSWER IN SAME WAY.
    THEN THEY ASK ME WHAT IS CAPILLARY, BUT THIS TIME I AM A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED AND GAVE MY ANSWER ABOUT THE CAVITATION. THEY AGAIN ASK ME ABOUT CAPLLARITY WITH A HINT. NOW I EXPLANED THEM ABOUT THAT CLEARLY.
    THEN THEY ASK ME ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CAPILLARY AND LAMINAR FLOW.
    I EXPLAINED THEM ABOUT IT.
    THEN THEY ASK ME ABOUT THE REASON OF CAPILLARY RISE. I GAVE THE ANSWER.
    NEXT QUE. WAS ABOUT FORMULA REQUIRED FOR IT WITH THE DIAGRAM ON THE BOARD I EXPLAINED THAT CLEARLY.ON THIS TOPIC ONLY THERE IS A DISCUSSION OF ABOUT 5-7 MINUTES.
    5. ONE ANOTHER MEMBER ASKED ME ABOUT THERMODYNAMICS-
    FIRST QUESTION IS HOW YOU CAN DEFINED THE ADAIABATIC PROCESS, I GAVE THE ANSWER.
    THEN THEY ASK ME HOW U CAN SIGNIFY IT AND WHAT IS THE THE FORMULA REQUIRED FOR IT.I GAVE THE TERM AND FORMULA REQUIRED FOR THAT.
    IT WAS γ=CP/CV. THEY ASK ME γ WILL SAME FOR ALL GASES OR NOT AND WHY. I GAVE THEM THE ANSWER.
    THEN THEY ASK ME WHAT IS CP AND CV. I GAVE THEM THE ANSWER.
    NOW THE TIME WAS FOR MY LAST QUESTION. IT WAS WHY THE VALUE OF CP IS MORE THAN CV. I TRIED TO EXPLAINED THAT BUT THEY WERE NOT SATISFIED. SO FINALLY I SIMPLY TOLD THEM SORRY.
    THEN THE MEMBER IN MIDDLE TOLD ME “ OK VISHAKHA THANK YOU AND BEST OF LUCK”
    I LEAVE THE ROOM SAYING THANK YOU……
    It was all about my interview. It takes about 20-22 minutes. As i think i gave about 65-70% answers. I am very tensed about the result. When the results will announced. And will there any probability to select or not.
    thank u

  261. Nice Blog.
    I have given interview on 30th June 2009, my interview was not so good but it was also not bad.
    I expect some luck
    When will result announced approx date.
    Thanks in advance

  262. hello sir
    i would like to know about the training procedure
    whether tey make us travel all over the centres throughout the country
    do they sack the trainees
    pay nd allowances r reduced during probation period???

  263. shamzu,…..

    thank u for maintaining such an informative blog…..

    nowadays there are no replies from ur side on some topics….

    seems u r working in bangolore…….

    so can u please confirm us about the release of results of SC……….

    many people are waiting anxiously…..

    • I don’t have much idea about when results are going to announce. Last year they declared the results, one month after the interview.
      You are employees even in probation period also. So don’t worry about salary or any other issues. About the training, definitely you will enjoy it. It is one of the best thing in ISRO. :)

  264. My Interview was on 30 June 2009
    There are 8 interviewers – out of which one is lady. All are very cool
    The chairmen of committee ask me are you employed, then i said yes followed by my company project. They are not interested in projects then they ask which subjects we touch and which subjects we do not touch. So i said i have read all subjects, you can ask from all subjects including Digital electronics and Communication. So, one of them start with communication. In between one them ask, have you done diploma, i said yes sir PGDEVD DIPLOMA form CDAC where i have read embedded systems and VLSI design, i think it gives some positive impact on them.
    Questions ask by them as follows:-
    1. There is one transmitter and two receiver, one is 100m away and other one is 400 m away. Which Rx receive more signal and why and also determine the ratio of signal receive at receivers antennas.

  267. Hi Shamzu!!

    thanks again for such a wonderful blog!

    I just wanted to know , if my name is in the waiting list then when´ll i know later if i m selected or not?

    I have my pgcet(karnataka pg) counseling this 18th(tuesday) i´ll have to choose a seat there, and i can cancel on 30th.

    I wanted to know when can i expect the second list of candidates in case i m in waiting list.

    Anyone who can help me with this pls do reply!!

    All of u all the best for the results!!!!

    • Definitely they will let u know whether you are selected or not. If they publish a waiting list, I think it will take one more month.

  268. hey friends… today one guy called isro n got to knw that result wl come next week n other guy called n he got to knw that result wl come by the end of month… so its complete uncertainty now…. but its sure that it will be declared in august only… so best of luck to all n me as well

  270. shamzu,…..

    many aspirants are eagerly waiting for the results…..

    can u please confirm the reason for the delay or atleast inform us the probable dates of the declaration of results>>????

    • @amarnath
      I don’t have any clear idea about when they are going to announce the result. Last year also they told like this over phone and released the results much later the said date. Don’t worry, it won’t take more than 45days after the interview.
