My Observation in consulate:

- Stay firm. No body movements even head movements.

- Be expressionless and speak in firm tone. Your speach must not be kind or rude it must be neutral.

- Dont go for long silence or pause (Answer as best of your knowledge as he is not the one evaluate everything in your life after this interview ;) )

- Answer in one word if possible and in case of descriptive questions dont exceed your line words more than 12-15.

- Dont be afraid or scared even hesitate as they are not some angels or someone from heaven just people try to check your profile whether you are professional or not. Even I recommand to cloth formally rather than going for tie or suit at programmer level. At senior level you must wear.
