The interviewer may ask a lot of analytical questions to test your mental ability. You will have a very little time to think and would be under pressure with the interviewing team looking at you for a response. Therefore, you need to practice analytical questions. As a result, this will help you think sooner & answer to them appropriately.
Similarly, make use of the short notes you prepared for the GATE exam. You need to utilize this for your revision of concepts.
It is said read-make an impression. IIT will do a background check before admitting you. You must also follow the same. Try to find who the interviewers are. Do their background check, have a look at their pictures. This will definitely boost your confidence level for the interview.
