The Personal interview (PI) round is the last chance for an aspirant to make his mark. One must make sure that it is treated with as much sincerity as the entrance test; as it will not make any difference whether you fail to perform in the entrance test or at the very end that is the PI, since the end result will be exactly the same as far as the selection process is concerned. If you were not selected for admission, then you might as well have failed entirely as you won’t be part of an IIM either way.
Cracking an IIM Ranchi IPM interview is no easy task but certainly not impossible, all you need to do is understand the motive behind it as well as the what your objectives are, for the interview. The interviews typically start with simple topics to get you comfortable and then move on to difficult ones depending on your academics, extra curriculars, work experience, etc. With all of that out of the way, let’s look at some IPM Ranchi Interview Experiences to get a better idea of the same.
IPM Ranchi Interview Experience #1
My IIM interview: There were 2 panellists, one old man and one relatively young woman (mentioned as M and F, respectively, from here onwards.). The interview itself was not that long in terms of time duration but felt quite lengthy because of all the stress perhaps, and because I think I got grilled from the start, and there were so many complicated questions thrown at me.
First of all, they greeted me and asked to see my certificates and academic mark sheets. I am a state-level table tennis and chess participant, while my 10th and 12th scores are 98% and 96%, respectively. After that, they began with the questions, which were as follows :
- M: How many types of chemical bonds are there? Name them.
- M: What does the 2nd law of thermodynamics state?
- M: What does the zeroth law of thermodynamics state?
- M: Principal on which aircraft are based.
- F: Can you tell us about the different forms of Iron and which of them are the worst and best quality?
- F: What is the difference between a catalyst and a promoter?
- F: Describe the industrial process of creating ammonia.
- F: What are non-reactive elements? Give some examples.

P2: Who is the M.P. of the place where you reside?
IPM Ranchi Interview Experience #3
I recently had my interview, and it was a lot more lengthy than I thought it would be and also very hard. I entered the interview with two panelists present there. I greeted them, and they did the same. First, there was the document verification process which barely took any time; then, one of the panelists asked me to introduce myself. I gave a brief intro in about 200 words, after which that same panelist began asking the questions.
First, he asked me about physics topics such as Newton\’s second law, Carnot engine, work, energy, etc. I was fumbling a little but got my point across nonetheless. Secondly, he asked me about some maths topics such as cost function, log, inequalities, etc. I. answered the majority of the questions correctly but got very nervous by this point because I was feeling the pressure of the situation.
The other panelist began asking the questions and asked me first to give my thoughts on \”are government servants free?\” I gave my opinion and some examples but could not speak much on the topic as I should have. Then, he asked me about G.K., and his first question was, who is the main person in Lok sabha and Rajya sabha? Which I, fortunately, knew about.
His second question was, who is the president of India and then he asked me about a few states and their capitals, after which he asked me if I knew which language is spoken in Karnataka? I answered all of these questions except for one, which was the last one. I was then asked about my achievements, and there were a few cross-questions that were not too difficult, and then the interview was ended by the panelists.

IPM Ranchi Interview Experience #6
So I just completed my interview. They asked me for my introduction and academic scores straightway. After providing what was asked, they started to ask questions related to academics. I was asked \’What is repo rate,\’ \’law of diminishing M.U.\’ and explain \’T.U. and M.U. curves,\’ which I answered accurately and briefly. Then, they moved on to other topics, \’Where is the river Nile,\’ \’What is the Brazilian currency.\’
Then, as I am from Madhya Pradesh, they asked me, \’Number of districts in M.P.,\’ \’Number of members of parliament from M.P..\’ I could answer only one of those two questions, and we moved on; they asked me what my father\’s occupation was, and I told them about my family business which was followed up by a few questions on it. In the end, they asked me how getting accepted at IIM would help me pursue my goals, and that was it.
