AMU interview for class 9. Syllabus, aim and what to expect

The questions are general in nature. The syllabus is precisely the same as that of entrance exam. However, it is not the test of students academic knowledge. Rather it's a personality and aptitude check in relation to other candidates.

Sample questions are:

1. Give us a Short Introduction about you.

Well, this is the most commonly and necessarily asked question in almost all the Interviews. Prepare a short and specific introduction about yourself. Remember do not talk vague or

out-of the point. They're asking you about yourself, so just stick to it. Your Name, then Family and Schooling combined with your interests and hobbies will do the impression.Try to be fluent and maintain an eye contact.

2. Why do you want to join Aligarh Muslim University.

Another Big question, and you must answer it well. Though anyone and everyone applying for the Entrance Test would probably want to join the University, but you must stand out somewhere. Here you don't need to be buttery, rather say out the true reason why you would join it. Try to be precise, leave an impression; say what you love about the university, tell them your dreams and how it related to that.Remember, just say what your heart speaks out, don't butter!

3. Tell us about your Aim in life.

Elaborate your dream, your aim, what you want to do in the future, as a person, in your career. And more importantly, why would you do so. For example, suppose you want to be a Doctor, tell them why you want to a doctor only! Tell them, how you plan to achieve your goal. This will leave a positive impression with them, and as far as the experts say, proactive nature is a big factor for selections in interviews.

And it's always like, if they know the child is deserving and is on a bright path; they're surely going to select you.

4. What's your favorite subject?

Further there may be questions testing your skills in your subjects, and they'll be specific. The subject you speak out as your favorite or that seems to be interesting for you, will give you questions! If you have your favorite subject as Science, there may be basic questions from Science, testing your general skills, If your favorite subject is English, they could ask you to say out a phrase or verse.

5. General Knowledge and Awareness

You also need to practice questions on general awareness. These are usually basic questions on current affairs, and other general topics.This section won't fire tough questions. You'll be able to answer the questions well if you have some awareness about the world around you.

6. Situations to have Psychometric Analysis

It is a relatively easier section, there will be simple situations or question on your behavior to certain problems and day-to-day events. Just be what you are, in a slight proactive attitude, you'll do well.

Basically, it's not a different planets thing. You are the one who has cleared the Entrance test, and you have the caliber. Just trust yourselves, have faith in god, and move ahead. Don't panic and reply what you know about the topic, talk to the interviewers and share your experiences and ideas.

Difference between Nuget and Chocolatey

NuGet is designed to allow you to easily add code libraries to your project. Things like JSON.NET, Entity Framework, etc.

Chocolatey is actually built on top of the NuGet package system, but it is designed to fill a different need. Chocolatey wraps up applications and other executables and makes it easy to install them on your computer. For example, tools like Git and Notepad++, etc. can be easily installed with a command like: cinst git.

To know more about chocolate and how to install it please refer my earlier blog post on W3LC : has a list of all the applications that can be installed.

If you have an open source project which is a library that is to be used in other developers' projects, then you should submit it to NuGet.

If it is an application that users would normally install, then create a Chocolatey package that users can easily install and update from the command line.

Details of different Package manager tools and where does Chocolate fits in:

OneGet has been renamed to Package management. It's core provides you with discovery and installation/uninstallation of various packages. OneGet is often referred to as a "package manager manager".

OneGet is a part of WMF 5 installation. Think of this as the "central concept" in the big picture. Now let's talk about packages.

Packages are fetched through package providers. E.g. PowerShellGet is one package provider for OneGet. Powershell gallery is a package source of of PowershellGet (PSGet). A provider can have multiple sources where it can search for it's packages.

E.g for the nuget-package provider; you can easily add the sources to the public nuget gallery and register your own e.g. myget source so it can be used when searching for packages.

Chocolatey is just another example of a package provider. Earlier it had to be installed and was a seperate module with it's own logic. The new Chocolatey provider conforms to the new framework of installing / managing packages.

So on a more conceptual level; a package provider itself contains information on how to install and search it's sources (sources can be registered/unregistered for each and every provider); whilst OneGet (Package management, package manager manager) works on the level above, managing package providers and interfacing this all for you.

OneGet glues it all together; while the providers itself knows how to handle packages based on it's registered sources.

Hope this explains it on the conceptual level.

See also this nice blogpost here explaining a few things more in detail:

If you want to play around with package providers and sources :

 Get-PackageProvider # -Shows package providers installed on your machine)
 Find-PackageProvider # -Find online package providers you can pull down and install)
 Get-PackageSource # -List all package sources, with it's provider name)
 Register-PackageSource # -Register new package source for a provider)

What is Chocolatey and how to install : Step by step guide from about the new and cool Windows Package Manager

To start with, Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows (like apt-get or yum but for Windows). You must have also heard in past about npm as a package manager for NodeJs.
It is much like similar thing - The package manager, to be specific!

Chocolatey is a decentralized framework for quickly installing applications and tools that you need. It is built on the NuGet infrastructure.

It includes all aspects of managing Windows software (installers, zip archives, runtime binaries, internal and 3rd party software) using a packaging framework that
understands both versioning and dependency requirements.

It is open source andyYou can host your own sources and add them to Chocolatey, you can extend Chocolatey's capabilities.

How to Install Chocolatey

It's easy, you know just like grabbing a Vodka Shot. But without a hole in pocket! It's free, in case you're wondering untill now.


1. Ensure that you are using an administrative shell.

2. Copy the text specific to your command shell.
@"%SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoProfile -InputFormat None -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin"

3. Paste in shell and press Enter

4. Wait for a few seconds and let the command execute.

5. [Optional] If you are using PowerShell.exe instead of Windows command prompt, there is an additional step. You must ensure Get-ExecutionPolicy is not Restricted.

a. Run Get-ExecutionPolicy. If it returns Restricted, then run Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned or Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process.

b. Use following command istead of the earlier mentioned in point 2.
Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))

And Voila! Its done!
