GD Topic - should activist without governance experience enter politics
Experience - below average...couldn't pitch in much
-PI - 3 member panel....2 faculty and one alumni
all they asked quests was abt my profile...took my file before starting the interview and started shooting questions ...no technical question..asked all the typical generic question and made sure to cut me down in all of them..as soon as i started answering "why GIM" the male faculty started shouting BULLSHIT after my first sentence and then the alumni said ab jo sikha ke bheja hai vo to bolne do isko...they took out my marksheets and started asking why less marks in this and that....no idea what to make out of the process
Any other interesting thing -
They gave ample time to complete the WAT portion ...so dont worry on that..just keep ur file in an organized manner...ATB to all

the questions wer nothing out of the box.. Went fine until the mid of interview and then it was all over th place..He asked me why mgmt and rejected my reply as lame and unlikely. I was further asked on my achievements which they werent interetsted in lending ear to. And kept on tagging all my answers as null and void. They tried to prove me wrng everywer wen i tried to link my experience to my interest in mba. At a point in tym, when they askd me somethng , I sed i dunno with the view dt, gimme a zero and let me go ! ‚Ź €š😠
i ws wondering.. hw worse cud it get?? i v been thru imt n greatlalkes interviews , but i never faced such a tormentous experience.. this ws highly demoralising.. n they were hell bent on taking us off-th-guard.. i never got a chance to elaborate or explain anyth they wanted to know !! y wudnt they let u speak ?? really?? tak th stress interviews but let th candidate respond ..

GD Topic -Arving kejriwal says i am an anarchist. Should people with no experience be allowed to enter politics.
GD- everyone given 30 seconds to open the GD, i was number 11th. All good points were made. So gone case. Was sitting in the corner, whenever i wanted to make a point i was not given an opportunity, didnt want to interrupt cos panelist said we will get 0 if we cut someone when they are speaking. gave 2 points that's it, Since i was the last to open, was asked to close all of a sudden well before 15 minute time, bit the dust again! Bad GD. 😠
Experience -PI - First few questions were okay. About acads, then though it is very easy to summarize..
1. Your any or everything doesn't matter.
2. Your answers are irrelevant to the question being asked.
Any other interesting thing - Puys, i have screwed my chances, but read this carefully 10 times.. remain calm. no matter what remain calm, smile and answer! Be polite always, dont get frustrated.
We are glad to release our interim placement report, 2014 for you:
GIM continues to have its placement record stay steady.

We were introduced to the the Director and few other faculty members and an Alumnus of GIM . They attended to any questions that the aspirants had and then all were divided into panels .
I was given PANEL 1 . Director of the institute (D) and one male faculty (F) .
GD Topic : Twitter , SMS , t20 - is the world moving at a faster pace ?
opening statements made - 30 secs , Discussion - 10 mins , Closing statements - 30 secs .
Our group had 8/9 participants , went alright , i chipped in 3/4 times .
WAT on same topic , time given 5-6 mins .
Experience -PI - I was the last in the panel but was called at 2nd itself . I was surprised and said ,
" But sir i am the last one " .
The moment i entered D said that it is the prerogative of the panel to call anyone at any time 😁
I said yes and he asked me to introduce myself .
Then asked why MBA , i said career growth ,. he went on to discuss how the current and Last CEO's of my co. are and were not MBA'S . I told him something and he seemed satisfied .
F told D that he find me boring , this was done intentionally on part of F to unsettle me . D told me to tell a joke or a funny instance : I was not expecting this , still i told an instance . they were not amused . 😞
Finally D asked me my scores and which other calls , i told IMT-G first pref , 2nd GIM .
Then he asked any ques for us ?
I asked about scholarships . He told and it was over 😃 .
Any other interesting thing - D told me not to discuss my exp. with anyone outside the batch and go off straight 😁 .
So based on this exp , i am amused .Keeping fingers crossed to get a First list convert with scholarship 😃
ATB to everyone .
Request all people who are done with their GD/PI to post their experiences whenever they are free , many of the aspirants here are waiting for the same.
To the other aspirants having queries about the process itself , please ask the same on GD/PI discussions thread .

A pleasant gd, reached a consesus (too soon, i guess :P)
Experience -PI -
Was the first one to be called in.
Panel consisted of two males. One was A G Balasubramanian, the other was Hemant Kumar Padhiari (just looked them up in GIM faculty).
The panel was pleasant. Standard questions asked - family background, why mba, any specialization, a little about the current affairs pertaining to electronics (i am a B.E. in ECE). That's it.
