Don't put any random hobby but something that you are genuinely interested in, otherwise you won't be able to answer the questions regarding that hobby . 

4 Don't worry about not knowing everything 

Even interviewers know that nobody knows everything . So don't take the pressure . Make sure whatever you know you answer it with conviction and what you don't know politely tell the truth . Be honest with the answers and don't sweat on not answering all questions correctly .

5 etiquettes matter 

Interview is held to know the candidate and to know the suitability of the candidate for a particular position . Hence you need not be argumentative even if there are some points of contention between you and the interviewer . Be polite while making your point . Once your interview is over thanks the panel with a smile, no matter how your interview went .
