I got asked the reason why PSK is better than ASK, FSK. I answered with two points. The viva man (invigilator) kept staring at me, expecting more. Didn't meet his expectations there, and finally he asked the mathematical expression of PSK. I answered with 'no' and my turn was over.

Self Note #1: DO NOT SIT MUM. Talk irrelevant, but god damn it, keep talking. 

Self Note #2: Don't know something? Admit it. But the whole point of the viva is, that in those 2-5 minutes he has with you, to convince him or give him the impression that you know your stuff.


In my CG Viva, i ended up talking about line clipping for a LOOOONG time. And the viva man sat there distinctly bored. He was too carefree and my answer was too unclear. Don't know if talking on and on was a good thing there.
