MBA Preparation: What are stress interviews and how to tackle them

Stress interviews are perhaps an MBA candidate's worst nightmare. It comes in myriad forms - ranging from moderately offensive to downright brutal. Ever since the GDPI rounds have started across all MBA colleges in the country, PaGaLGuY users and MBA candidates have been discussing their stress interview experiences. But what is exactly a stress interview?Stress interviews are described as a setting where the interviewee, in this case, the MBA candidate, is put through immense psychological pressure to assess how does he/she perform under stress.PaGaLGuY approached several MBA aspirants to find out if they were made to undergo stress interviews so far. Elaborating on his experience, 24-year-old student Ayush, said, "I faced stress interviews at both Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) and Symbiosis Center for Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD). I was countered at every step. For instance, in the NMIMS interview, when I was in the midst of explaining why I wanted to join the institute, I was stopped midway and was told to join Chetana College of Management or Jamnalal Bajaj Institute Of Management Studies (JBIMS) instead.Rea D, who had her Indian Institute of Management, Indore (IIM-I) interview recently, is confused about the way her interview went. "I'm not sure if I should call it a stress interview. The panellists were hostile and aggressive throughout the interview, and it definitely did not seem pleasant," she said.
PaGaLGuY user, by the username @baddybatman was too extremely distressed with the manner in which his IIM Calcutta interview was conducted. "No questions on academics, work experience, or current affairs was asked. I was only asked why I wanted to do MBA, following which they continued to grill me for 25 minutes. They were clearly making a point that I wasn't sure why I wanted to do MBA and that I wouldn't be admitted in the college," he said.
Are all of the aforementioned experiences, instances of stress interviews?MBA expert and GDPI panellist in several MBA colleges, Prof Sidharth Balakrishna is of the opinion that students, more often than not, are unaware of what counts as a stress interview. "Very often, I ask my students if they've had a stress interview and after probing a little, I come to know that they were asked four or five questions to which they had no answers and therefore felt it was a stress interview. Let me tell you that doesn't account for one," he said. After speaking to a couple of students, he observed that they perceive it to be a stress interview when they are not allowed to complete an answer and are asked a question even before they finish. "I would like to tell students to not bother too much about it. It could be that the panel members are checking if you'll have prepared well. Perhaps they want you to answer a particular question and once you've done that in as many words as possible, they want to move on to the next question," he said.Additionally, he mentioned that candidates on some occasion, accuse panellists of being rude and aggressive in their approach with them. "In this case, my advice to students would be to not lose your patience and composure. The panel members want to judge if you are able to handle difficult situations in a calm and composed manner. Do not get stressed out. If anyone has spoken to you in a slightly aggressive manner that does not mean you get provoked. Be calm and answer the question," he said. He added that if a candidate is being asked two-three questions at the same time then he/she must state that he/she would like to answer the first question and then move on to the others. "Once again, the main point is to make sure that you don't lose your cool and do not feel that just because you have been cut short, the panellists are deliberately trying to give you a tough time," he concluded.

 MBA GDPI Testimonial: How IIM-C student, Sumeet Kalaskar, cracked the PI round
In this interview, Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM-C) student, Sumeet A Kalaskar  shares his experience on the most important stage of admission process, which is the Personal Interview (PI) round. An Indian Institute of Technology graduate in Machine Learning/Data Science, Sumeet shares his personal interview experience along with a few tips for MBA aspirants to benefit from.

Q. How long was your interview?
A. My interview lasted for almost 25-30 minutes​Q. On the basis of what are the questions asked in the interview round?
A. We are all given a form to fill at the beginning of the entire process. The questions asked during the interview round are wholly dependent on the answers written in the form. 
​Q. What kind of questions were asked to you? 
A. Plenty of questions were asked. Questions related to my background, short term and long term goals, kind of projects undertaken during graduation, reason for doing MBA( which is a very important question), hobbies,favourite subject, my choice of specialisation in MBA and why, future plans, were the questions asked. 
​Q. What's the most challenging aspect of an Interview? Could you give us an example with respect to the experience you had?
A. The most challenging aspect of an interview is when they cross question you about something you said while you are already answering a question. For instance, when they asked me what was my favourite subject, I replied Maths, and went onto say that I taught Maths and Quantitative Aptitude. Before I could complete my statement they asked me questions on algorithms and asked me to explain a few of them.
​Q. What do you think contributed in your selection?
A. I presented my answers in detail, backed by numbers and statistics wherever needed. My responses weren't mere opinions. They were well corroborated answers supported with reason. By the end of it all, the panellists want to see if you have an entire plan chalked out---why you want to do MBA? How is your background going to help you in it?Whether or no, you have a well decided plan ahead of you? They like candidates who have a career plan in mind. Candidates who fail to justify their replies, find it difficult to crack the PI round. I was quite clear about the aforementioned questions as I had a well chalked out plan. Perhaps that's why I could justify my answers well and convince them with my replies.
​Q. How important is GK in the PI level?
A.I was asked general awareness questions pertaining to the kind of answers I gave in the form. That is why one must be very sure about what he/she writes in the form. 
​Q Any tips you would like to share with candidates?
A. 1) Know exactly why you want to do MBA, and why you want to specialise in a given field. Have a well chalked out plan. Remember, institutes look for managers, not entrepreneurs. 
    2) Know yourself inside and out so that you can answer questions based on your personality well. 
    3) Justify your answers. Don't just share opinions. Give sensible and well thought out, honest responses. 
    4) Revise your basics, and by that I mean, all that you've studied till graduation and work experience as they can question you about it. 
    5) Don't stress as that will not help you give clear and precise answers.
