Dear Students, SBI brought out the results of this year's SBI PO Mains Examination recently. While some made it to the Personal Interview round, other had their chips in this cutthroat competition for a seat of Probationary Officer in the State Bank of India. Now that the results of SBI PO Mains and BOB PO PGDBF Examinations are already announced, the selected candidates would have started to prepare for their Personal Interview Round.  Out of the total candidates who got through the second phase of SBI PO Examination, only one-third will make it to the final selections.

This final phase of examination plays a great role in one's selection for the post of Probationary Officer in the largest Public Sector Bank of India. It accounts for a total of 50 marks viz. 30 marks for Personal Interview and 20 for the Group Discussion. How you take part in the Group Discussion can make a big difference in your final results, in a good way or in a bad way. So, here are the points that will help you perform to the best of your ability in the Group Discussion of SBI PO and BOB PO Exam 2018.

  • In a group discussion, one needs to be a good listener and be patient enough to listen to others attentively. You should make your point after letting the other complete his/hers'. 
  • Another important point is to make the right choice of words. Words that are neutral & don't hurt the sentiments of anyone should be used.
  • One should be assertive while participating in a discussion. This leaves a good impact on the jury & gives him a lead in the minds of other candidates.
  • One should be ready to face criticism from others. It should be countered politely if it is genuine & valid.
  • Participate actively as one's active participation in a group discussion is directly proportional to her chances of getting success. 
  • Throughout the discussion, one must maintain the dignity & should respect other participants. 
  • The capability to conclude is as important as initiating a discussion. A conclusion should be kept precise & in sync with the topic.
