Grateful to My Alma Matter for what I am today!”

As we are aware that GD, PI are an integral part of MBA admission process. These are basically personality assessment tests to assess a candidate's leadership skills, communication ability and problem-solving skills which are essential to succeed as a manager.

  

While participating in a GD, focus on the following:

1. Content.

2. Team approach.

3. Leadership skills.

4. Communication skills.

5. Analytical & logical reasoning.

  

While participating in a PI, focus on the following:

  

1. Be honest to yourself & interviewer

2. Be Polite

3. Drive the interview towards your strength

4. Stay Calm

5. Positive body language & approach

6. Be thorough with what you write in your CV

7. Reflect Confidence

  

Give your best to achieve what you desire for., All the best to the MBA aspirants.

I got 81 percentile in CAT. What are my chances of getting a call for Gd/pi ?

Based on CAT percentile you have fairly good chances of securing a call for GD-PI. Could you also share some details about your background? Because Praxis Business School gives a lot of importance to the profile of the candidate and not only their entrance scores.

With the announcement of CAT 2019 results, the bell has been rung and the time has to come to focus on preparing for the next phase of the process,ie, the GD/WAT-PI. Regarding the PI or Personal Interview round, candidates are tested on their fluency in speaking and their way of aritculating themselves. Till date two most common questions make it or break it for any candidate. " Tell me something about yourself" and " Why MBA?" - every candidate should have a clear and well prepared answer for these two questions. The former question focuses more on your experience till now whereas the latter one quizzes you on the instigating reasons you want to pursue an MBA for. All the best for the future.
