Group discussion and Personal Interview are the final stages and plays the most crucial role for any candidate to get admissions in top B-Schools and it is not only the second part of the preparation but also the final stage for any aspirant to get well performed in this particular round. Group Discussion rounds are not only check your presence in the group but also check how well you say about that particular topic that is given to you how well you know about that subject how attentive you are about that thing so all of these things gets added and tells you whether you performed well or not in that particular thing and also most important things to remember is that these GD and PI rounds though seems easy but actually hard to clear. The Importance of GDPI is like as it is selection as well as elimination round this round is taken to check individuals level of confidence, behaviour, vision, body language, skills and knowledge about the particular thing.
In management exams like CAT XAT IIFT CMAT-PGDM the interviewer actually checks the overall performance of the individual and this is as important as preparing for the written exam if someone has done brilliant job in his/her exam but did not able to perform well in the GDPI rounds so there are very less chance of him getting selected so as for all these things it is very important to be well prepared for both written test as well as GDPI as well.
There is a Exam like CMAT which also not only gives importance to the clearing of its exam but also gives importance to the GDPI most, as this part plays a very crucial part in final selection. So for all of these things it is important to have focus on both the things while preparing for any management exam here is some exam dates and relevant paper pattern.
