Group Discussions - speak your way to your dream Bank job
Group Discussions (GDs) are a common feature of the selection process for popular jobs in many banks. In a typical Group Discussion, a group of candidates will be given a short topic and a few minutes to think about the topic. After this, the group will be given some time to speak on the topic. During this period, any of the candidates can speak on the given topic at any point of time.
A Group Discussion is a very good way to evaluate multiple candidates quickly. At the same time, it is also a good opportunity for candidates to showcase their awareness of a topic, their ability to think logically and their ability to express themselves. Often, a candidate needs to speak for only 2 to five minutes in a GD in order to do well. Thus, if a candidate is able to present just 3 or 4 good points, it will be good enough to get the candidate selected.
However, many candidates have an unnatural fear of GDs. Common concerns regarding GDs are - my English is not very good, I may not know anything about the topic, other people may not let me speak, there may be a fish market and so on.
The most common of these concerns, of course, is - my English is not good enough; so, I will not be able to speak in a GD. The answer to this is very simple - your competitors in a GD are going to be people like you yourself. Your competitors are not going to be students of Oxford and Cambridge with false accents and arcane words. Your competitors' level of English is going to be as good as your level of English. Your competitors are as concerned/worried about their command of English as you are. In our country, English is a second language for almost all of us. So, it is natural for all of us to be unsure of our command of English. Be confident that if you have cleared the written stage then your command of English is good enough to get you your dream bank job. It is only your lack of confidence that is holding you back.
So, do not be afraid! Know that you are as good as your competition - if not better than them. In order to help you prepare for GDs, we are starting this series of articles on Group Discussions. In this series, we will cover the essential concepts of GDs, tips and tricks for GDs, common fears/myths about GDs and so on. We will also give you one GD topic per week.
