    There is no prior preparation needed for cracking the group discussion. Your knowledge on the daily running topics, current affairs, some awareness on some issues would help you to present your views on a topic. You should be able to present the views with a proper communication. The preparation that you could do should be to improve your communication skills and gain some knowledge on the current day running topics or current affairs. There are some important points that you should remember while in a group discussion in order to be identified, Some of them are like having eye contact with all the group discussion participants, having proper knowledge on the topic rather than speaking irrelevant matter, showcasing your team playing skills by initiating the discussion or making everyone speak etc , by listening to everyone who is speaking without interrupting them and finally letting the discussion end with a proper conclusion.

    Its actually very simple. its not at all difficult.In the group discussion first u introduce yourself for eg,i myself XYZ perceiving so and so...and in group discussion discuss with all the person who is present over there. have a smile and proceed u r discussion with full confident. Talk either "for "or "against" the topic. never talk for both kinds...make urself free when u r talking so that u will not become nervous... there is no need of preparation for group discussion as u dont no wat topic they will post in front of u.just have fluency when u r talking and have confident what ever u r talking is right......and one important thing is allowing others to talk. give chance to other who has come for group discussion...
    hope my reply ill be helpful... thank u

    The main purpose of group discussion is for testing your communication skill. You don't worry about the grammar mistake. Talk about topic and don't go out of the topic.You don't argue with your friends during the interview.The topic for Group Discussion is always a familiar topic related to the current situation happening in and around you.

    while preparing for GD just go through some year books and nearby hot topics in articles of paper jot down and try to extract main ideas or words in your own words .standing alone in GD is not required try to cutivate the habit of extracting ideas from all people within your group and present your own including their ideas too. because checks your team work cooperation

    The most important and best step to present your self as unique in group discussion(G.D) is your communication skills, way of expressing your views and ideas, your dressing style(must be a professional one), and first and foremost your self confidence. Your confidence must be like that, people thinks twice before putting up their question infront of you. You must speak frequently while expressing, you must raise questions to your competitors, you must give 20 seconds of break after your question.You must express your basic idea about discussion frequently. And also remember that if some one else is expressing his/her ideas, then you must listen him carefully and use his ideas to modify your prepared ideas and present them more effectively, and also remember that, you do not interfere if some one else is representing his/her thought in between of this speaking.

    Hi,
    There is no standard way to crack the Group discussion since it depends on the topic of discussion and our knowledge based on it.But u can do so by following some basic steps.


    • If you are confident about the topic then we can initiate the discussion.
    • If you are less confident and have few points to deliver then we should wait for the right timing and deliver it in order to make our point special.At the same time have an eye on the timing of discussion and make sure that u deliver your point before the whole discussion ends.


    Overall timing and presence of mind is so vital to crack any GD.

    Thank You.

    Now a days GD is mostly priority based program..
    in GD you have to take few steps for better performance;
    for GD you dont have do any post preparations.
    just aim strate and be focused what are you going to be discussed.
    while discussion is running lissted everybody carefully and grab the opportunity for speak and say you point of view for perticulat GD topic. GD is not only for passing comments.. Everyone is failed just because of this thinking, if somebody is saying some point just listen him/her and if he/she is going wrong on some point or he/she is right on their point just be a participant in that and communicate well. you good communication will be creat a good personality during GD time.. Dont be anger during if somebodys lying or doing wrost things. cause that types of mischife creates bad impression.
    be patient and improve good listening skills.. good listening skill is more important during GD time cause if you dont know about the topic well, so you can understand well through good listening skills.
    best of luck.

    Wen u go for group disscussion make sure that u r infront of 10-15 peoples so u hv to create ur identity in betn them. The GD topics are based on day to day matters or running matters which we genrally disscuss with our friends like politics,education system,our leaders,international company or domestic companys etc. So confident & think that u r with ur friends. Wen they give u a topic firstly think on it for a min,then point out some main points infront of them.& most imp talking sense infront of them.pointing out some major issues bt dnt get aggresive or dnt get viable,be calm & tell ur points to them. So u dnt need to be do anytging ur points, ur talking sense do the rest work.

    Group Discussion is an important part of placement process where most people find difficult to attend. In order to attend a group discussion successfully you need to have good communication skills. Spend some time with a group of your friends discussing about the current affairs so that you gain some experience speaking in front of a group of people and simultaneously your communication skills improve.. never speak any irrelevant matter.

    HI,

    you cannot do any prior preparation for GD

    The topics for GD are not pre decided it is decided at the venue itself

    you should keep yourself updated on daily affairs and current matters''

    Improve your communication skills

    Be presentful, attentive to what others are speaking and grabbing the opportunity to start the topic

    the one who initiates the topic is most recommended

    To update your knowledge.To talk with that person you should keep eye contact and proper communication.In most of the case they give mark for who talk first and who give conclusion. At the same time for every correct point to improve mark. So talk what ever you know in an proper way.

    It is the not matter how many people are standing before you...it is based on how u are expressing the ideas on particular topic...talking ten persons to single person is not important ,,the way that single person is answering the questions to ten persons is more important

    You should be very much clear about the topic given in the GD, then you should talk very relevant points related to that topic if somebody is already giving his/ her opinion then you should have the quality to listen that person very carefully and then you should give your opinion about the same. You should not get hasitate while giving the presentation you should be clear and precise about the topic and should be able to convey your opinion in a very clear format so that everybody can easily understand the meaning of your sentence. Basically GD is only depend upon your communication, presentation and understand of the topic etc.
    So, just keep all the things in your mind then you would be able to crack any GD whether it is a group of 10-15 or 20-25.

    GD is done to test persons subject knowledge and communication skills i.e how do you interact with other people as it is normally required during your work related meetings.You are judged for those skills via your body language (such as your facial expressions and eye to eye contact),listening skills (that is not interrupting while someone else is speaking),your preciseness to the topic (no unnecessary talks,Keep it simple and sensible) and also how clearly you speak and your confidence.
    So in short you don't need to speak too much but when you speak you should be confident ,clear ,precise , polite and most important thing each time you speak try to make it as close to a conclusion as possible which shows your problem solving and decision making skills in short time .

    During the Group Discussion:

    What do the panelists assess:Some of the qualities assessed in a GD are:

    Leadership Skills - Ability to take leadership roles and be able to lead, inspire and carry the team along to help them achieve the group's objectives.

    Communication Skills - Candidates will be assessed in terms of clarity of thought, expression and aptness of language. One key aspect is listening. It indicates a willingness to accommodate others views.

    Interpersonal Skills - People skills are an important aspect of any job. They are reflected in the ability to interact with other members of the group in a brief situation. Emotional maturity and balance promotes good interpersonal relationships. The person has to be more people centric and less self-centered.

    Persuasive Skills - The ability to analyze and persuade others to see the problem from multiple perspectives.

    GD is a test of your ability to think, your analytical capabilities and your ability to make your point in a team-based environment.

    These are some of the sub-skills that also get assessed with the skills mentioned above:

    Clarity of thought

    Group working skills (especially during a group task of case study discussion)

    Conflict handling

    Listening and probing skills

    Knowledge about the subject and individual point of view

    Ability to create a consensus

    Openess and flexibility towards new ideas

    Data based approach to decision making

    While, it is not possible to reflect all these qualities in a short time, you would do well if you are able to show a couple or more qualities and avoid giving negative evidence on others.

    the best way to emerge in a group discussion is to give maximum number of facts about the topic . The other member will be interested in something new so you have to give something different. You must not but some body point if you think that the opposite person is wrong they you can add your point to make it right. Keep smiling in the group do not be nerous. Do not use your hands or shouting in the discussion it will create a wrong image of your personality. You can read news papers and watch television to prepare for group discussion .

    1) First thing is don't get tensed. the topic is usually on regular topic so no need to worry.
    2) Think about whatever the topic has given and speak what ever you know without fear and hesitation.
    3) And one more thing give chance to others to speak and try to get their views.

    The group discussed the need to prepare for the cracking. Daily on topics, some issues, current affairs, some awareness of their knowledge to help you submit your idea for a topic. You should be able to present ideas with proper communication.
    It's actually very simple. Group discussion on all difficult.In 1 you introduce yourself, for example, I consider myself the ABC or what was your name. etc etc so and so ...

    Discussion and group discussion with all who are present here. your referring to proceed with a smile and confidence. Either "" or subject "against the" talk. Never talk to both ...

    Feel free when your talking to yourself so that they will not bother us ... One important thing is to allow others to speak. Other to discuss the group's chance to ... , and the first and most important your self-confidence. Your faith should be like, people think twice before you put in front of the question. that, if you do not intervene and represent him / her that the thought of speaking.

    Hello

    to practice for group discussions call up your friends and start discussing among yourself about any topic. That will help you built your confidence plus your speaking skills.

    While attending a real GD make sure you start max 3rd or fourth else you will lag behind and no one will notice you. You should have plenty of points so that you can get into a GD whenever you want with very good points to tilt the points in your favor.

    Remember even if your deliver one line and it of significant importance then you will automatically get selected. It depends on the quality of the sentences that you say rather than the quantity.

    Finally practice speaking in english to improve your speaking ability , if you are already excellent in speaking then i dont think you need to do any thing more

    Thanks

    Hi Friend,
    Generally group discussions are based on current topics/affairs. So please keep a watch on television news/news paper/articles so that you are across the national/international current affairs. During the group discussion do not think there are several guys, just think about yourself , this is the time where you need to present yourself, your views.
    In a Group discussion either you need to speak for/against in a topic, choose the one in which you are confident to talk. Do not intervene when someone is talking, in your turn present your view with clarity and in a highlevel approach to deeper down if required. Please ensure to talk within the topic. Do not lengthen your views that might be unpleasant for audience.

    Best of Luck!

    Group discussion is certainly an important part of recruitment procedure for many companies..And its a very tedious task so you have to be well prepared for it..Firstly you should start preparing for it from very early on by reading good english books especially which contain information on the current hot topics and also which help you to improve your vocabulary..Also make it a habit to reasd newspaper daily so as to have a knowabout of the current happenings in India as well as the entire world..This will certainly give you an edge over the others who start preparing for it at the last moment..
    Also improve your speaking skillls , clarity and fluency of your speech and speak with confidence..
    Now when you are in group discussion to stand unique you have to put your point forward in a convincing way and lay stress on your point and then if others try to contradict it you still stay firm on it by counter-argument but dont budge from your stand..Speak clearly and with confidence..Dont hesitate to speak what is in your mind as hesitation and nervousness often lead to downfall of many individuals in group duscussions..
    Keep on making one point after another and dont sit quietly but see to it that you dont come across as over-confident and that your points are genuine..
    Good luck

    Hello friend,
    To be distinguished from the others first of all dress well then follow these certain tricks
    1-try to sit in the middle portion of the GD table such that you could see all of your Team mates while saying some thing
    2-try to be the first/2nd or 3rd person to speak in the GD
    3-speak 2-3 times and put 2-3 points each time with EXAMPLES(important).
    dont interfere a lot and let others to put there point and in situation appreciate their point.
    4-Dont look at the moderator always make eye contact with team mates ,dont put your leg crossed,dont chew,....dont do any behaviour to show that you are nervous.
    5-try to initiate or give summary in the end of GD.
    6-dont leave or get up unless moderator say so or dont conclude unless moderator ask you to conclude.
    7- give chance to others who have not spoke a word that will make you different from others.
    These are the basics of GD and once you attain one or two you will automatically follow these.

    Thank you.

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!
    It's always a treat and fun to answer your queries.
    I also appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us!


    Group discussion (GD) in simple words means discussion among a group of people. GDs are now increasingly being used by corporate and institutions for selection of candidate for employment or admission.

    Hence it is very important that you prepare for it properly.
    Here are some of the tips that you should remember before a GD-

    1) First of all understand the Topic of discussion.

    2) If you don't get any idea about the topic,then keep quite and let others speak.
    By doing this,you'll get to know what the topic is all about after hearing others.

    3) If you are not sure about the topic,then do not initiate or begin the GD.Do as I told you above

    4) If you are sure about the topic,then you can lead the group and hence act as a leader of the group.
    Start by giving general idea and speaking in general about the topic.Try to open up the topic for others.

    5) Give each and everyone an opportunity to speak.
    You need to treat every member equally and should give each member a chance to put forward his/her
    view.

    6) If you do not agree with another member,then be polite in saying so.
    Don't be aggressive and show anger to that member

    7) Make sure that whatever you say is related to topic and in its context.

    Hope you'll note down these points on a paper and will look them before going for a GD!

    I'm sending you a URL of a video that shows a GD in progress and how you should face it.

    The URL is-

    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!

    Hello
    As you are going to attend the interviews then you should be fully prepared for it.
    GD is a vital round in the Recruitment process as it is not a selection process it is a disqualification round where a disqualification is done in bulk and this may matter.
    So do not ignore the GD.

    Join some good institution and practice mock GD it is very important and helpful as well.
    Work on your debating and communication skills.
    Be confident with what you speak.
    Donot get arguementative.
    Be organised.

    Thank you
