HAL Interview Experience - Ahmedabad Nov 14, 2013
I gave the online test for HAL (mechanical) which was scheduled on 14/11/2013 at abad.
It consisted of 160 questions (100 tech, 40 reasoning, 20 general awareness) and 150 min were allotted to the test.
The paper was tough but good and reasoning section was easy. General awareness was tough because history was asked and technical section was medium.
Please pay attention to technical part and do remember standard values like root 2, 3, 5, 7...etc.
Also values of sin10, sin20, sin40, . Etc apart from std values as calculators are not allowed and a lot of numericals are asked.
Main subjects are production, tom, ic engine, md, maths apart from syllabus of GATE.
