Upon clearing the written entrance examination, an MBA aspirant is expected to sit for Group Discussion (GD), followed by a Personal Interview (PI) round, both of which act as important selection and elimination rounds in the rat race to make it to the best B-school.
GD can be defined as a round of intense debate that takes place between several candidates without any external interference. One’s ability to put his/her point across smoothly amidst a continuous exchange of ideas and opinions between a number of candidates is what determines his / her success in this round. Personal Interview, on the other hand, is focused on getting to know the candidate better by gauging the clarity of his / her thinking process, future plans, etc.
MBA colleges all over the country have begun conducting GDPI sessions and aspirants have started gearing up for these rounds to inch one step closer to gain admissions to their dream B-school.
