Me: I answerd well

F1: She asked about digital india?
Me: Answered well....

M1: Ok akhil, take one chocolate!
Me: I said thank you sir, other member too said me to took chocolate - I took one and thanked everyone and went out.

It was a good experience...panels are different in approach some panels mainly focused about personal questions, my panel was more in banking. If you are prepared for 100 words there you can only said 50 due to tension but don't worry most of them are performing this way. Practice well in front of a mirror and always remember that you are the best and this job is for you.

All the best..!!
