Group Discussion

As a professional in the working world, there will be many times when you will be required to participate in group discussions. There are the four major areas tested in your group discussion:

  1. Content
  2. Communication skills
  3. Group dynamics
  4. Leadership

Normally 7-10 candidate are taken as a group, though in some cases, up to 14 people may be included in a group. The GD lasts for 10-15 minutes. For a topic-based GD, 2-3 minutes of thinking time may be given; though the group is often told to start right away. The evaluation is done by one or two experts, usually expert from the organization itself. Please remember that these people are experts with a lot of experience and can be counted upon to observe all details, even if the GD is chaotic.

The candidates may be seated in a circle or in a rectangular arrangement, with or without a table. Seating arrangements may be prefixed or there may be free seating.

The discussion may be stopped at the set time or even earlier. A conclusion or consensus may be asked for, though it usually does not occur. A written or verbal summary may asked for at the end from each candidate.
