what kind of question can be expected in the interview for PGDTE course?

Shareef 3rd Mar, 2020
Sorry, interview questions are not revealed and can't even except such questions will be asked by interviewer. Most of the top Institutes/companies will test English pronunciation and accent, will test your knowledge on particular subject, will test how good you can speak. But what particular things they will ask are impossible to say
