A friend of mine also appeared for interview today and she told that the interview was very general in nature, but they have asked relatively technical questions from you. Maybe you have shown them your interest in international politics thats why they asked questions relating to trump, populism and nationalism .

One thing that I observed is that when Gen. Sb start asking questions, other were keenly observing and taking notes. Later, when Mr. Seerat took his turn, other two were taking notes.
Mr. Razi asked questions chiefly based on my answers to Gen. Sb and Mr. Seerat.
Same was the case with fourth interviewer.

So the point is, the second half of your interview depends mainly on your answers during the first half.

Hence the adage " انٹرویو لیا نہیں جاتا، دیا جاتا ہے " holds valid.
