Personal Interviews(PI) are part of most top B-schools’ selection process and IIM Rohtak is no exception. PI is a crucial stage and carries 15% weightage in the Rohtak IPM programme selection process. The candidates are expected to be confident, witty and able to think on their feet.
The questions vary from academics to sports and local issues to international ones, which is why the preparation of an IIM IPM interview can feel like attempting to read & remember everything under the sun. However, it need not be that way. With proper preparation and exposure to different topics one can be confident that everything will be fine.
We at IPM radar, have made a list of IPM Rohtak Interview Experiences, submitted to us by the candidates who appeared in them (within the last 4 years), in order give IPM aspirants an idea about what an IIM Rohtak interview is like.

IPM Rohtak Interview Experience #4
Started with the Intro, then moved on to an extempore topic – ‘Disaster management. There were a lot of cross-questions from academics; they asked a lot of physics-related questions on topics such as work and energy. I was comfortable with academics and therefore thought that the interview was heading in a positive direction. But after that, they slightly changed the subject by moving to Olympics, merging it with physics, and asking a few questions. After that discussion, there came the G.K. part.
They first asked me about Delhi monuments, Delhi ministers, and sports news. Then, they asked about ‘the first president of India,’ ‘current vice president,’ ‘current Lok sabha speaker,’ ‘difference between Rajya sabha and Lok sabha’ and the number of seats in each of them. After that, they greeted me and ended the interview.
IPM Rohtak Interview Experience #5
I am a PCM student; my academic profile is 10th – 90%, 12th – 89%, and I’d like to share my interview experience. It started with document verification (i had to show everything to the camera because it was in online mode), after which one of the two panelists asked me for my introduction. I had prepared for it a while ago, and by the time of the interview, I had internalized it well.
A short introduction highlighted all my achievements, hobbies, and interests. Then, I was presented with an extempore topic, “Is cricket overrated in India?”. I immediately wanted to start to speak but stopped myself as I didn’t have a proper structure in mind. I asked for some time to think, and after about 30 to 40 seconds, I gave a well-structured answer. Some of the questions that I remember from my interview are:

IPM Rohtak Interview Experience #7
My academic profile –
10 th – 97%
12 th – 94.8 %
I am a math background student and appeared for my IIM interview a few days ago, and this is how it went :
One panelist greeted me and gave me an extempore topic straight away it was “My dream job”. I spoke for about a minute or two and then was presented another question – “What is your favorite subject?”; I told them it was maths. Second panelist asked me a few questions from the subject, some of which were – “What is the real-life use of Pythagoras theorem?”, “What is the value of Cot 90?” and differentiation of Sin inverse x?, all of which I answered, except one “Why do we study derivative,” to which I simply had to reply that I did not know exactly why and that the books never gave us the reason behind it or its real-world applications.
Then asked me the following questions, “How many states are there in India?”, “Name the state which was most recently formed,” “Name of the sea near Kerala” I answered 2 of the three questions, and then the interview came to a stop; I’d say it was okay but could have gone better.
