Group Discussions are Important part of many competitive exams these days.  GDs are normally avoided by candidates as its a group testing technique that involves 5 - 10 people induliging in discussion over any current scenario that might range  from any sportsperson or a Film to any current topic of national/international interest.

Avoidance of GDs is a natural phenomenon of human beings, That's why one has to prepare and practice as much as possible to get accustomed to it.

 The Purpose-

The purpose of organisations behind conducting the Group Discussions is to test the Communication, Clarity of thoughts, Team-Work and pursuasive abilities of the candidate. Their is no standard method in GD as the examiner may itself divide the group in two - one to speak for Merits and Other in Demerits of the Topic, or it may leave it to the candidate itself what he/she wants to speak about (Merits/Demerits).

What they are judging more than anything else is your clarity of thoughts and ability to make every one hear and understand your point. Some times. we have heard of candidates being selected after speaking in Hindi, mainly due to they were able to make everyone believe in their point. So language and communication are overriden by abiities of good clarity of thoughts and making everyone understand you.

 How to Tackle :-

  • Start the discussion only if you are sure of your point to give a meaningful begining. Don't rush to start without much prior knowledge of the topic.
  • If you are not one of first five  spearkers, try to speak in against of what the first five people are saying as it will give another fresh start to the dicussion, repeating the same thing won't make a difference and will not give you any points.
  • Have evidence for your point so as to persuade others.
  • Create your opportunities, remember you'll have to find a chance to speak as others are also trying the same. So keep your points ready and speak when the opportunity is there.
  • Stick to your point of view and provide good evidences.

Don't do this:--

  • Do not dominate, remember that they are looking for those that can work in a team and express themselves in the team and not for those that will rule it. So participate but do not try to dominate.
  • Do not take the appropch of speak once and sleep, you should participate in the discussion till the end to make it reach some meaningful conclusion. It should not look like that you were just trying to shed off a burden from your shoulders by speaking a few words at once.
  • Stick to your point but don 't be aggressive, keep your cool if anyone opposes your point. Don't take it personally!
