    Generally they will give one topic that is random one and give five minutes of time to you to collect some information about it. In thise five minutes also they observe you. So please be careful. Note down all the information in points wise.

    Start the discusion once they signal to do it. One who starts discusion in group discusion are called INITIATOR. Intiators starts the discusion with brief introduction and what is the topic and what needs to be discussed.

    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!
