In this post we are sharing interview questions asked in ISRO interview.  We have collected these questions from personal experiences of candidates, social networking sites like facebook, quora etc. We hope these questions will give you great idea about ISRO interview process. Also, we would like to tell you that in the below question list some of the questions are asked based on candidates individual skill set. So It is not desirable to know every  topic mentioned in below questions. But to be in safe side please try to cover as much topics as you can cover. This will surely increase your chances to be selected in the interview.
