- Group discussions are meant to judge your communication and interpersonal abilities. The observers will be looking for verbal and non-verbal skills, clarity of thought, leadership abilities and other interpersonal skills
- Usually a current topic will be taken up and a group of 8-12 people will be asked to discuss the topic
- There is no need to prepare on specific topics. If you read the newspapers – it should be enough.
- You do not have to be the first to speak out to be noticed. It is often better for someone else to begin the discussion. However, if you are very well informed on the topic it might be a good idea to set the ball rolling
- Listen carefully to what others are saying. It is a good idea to quote others when you speak while supporting, building or even criticising them.
- Be natural and talk normally and be yourself – it always gives the best results.
