Repeated the same answer I had told in my first interview.

VO: What's pathway program?
University after reviewing my profile, they think I have few pre requisites to fulfill which will help me perform better in my masters program and these subjects I haven't studied in my UG hence *interrupted*

VO: How will you sponsor your education?
I have secure loan of 45lakhs and parents will sponsor the rest.

VO: Visa is approved. Have a nice stay there.
Thank to you so much ma'am. You made my day.

And the reason for my first rejection was because I had filled the course name wrong in my DS160.
