Bank of Baroda PO 2017 GD and Interview Experience 8

Dear Readers,
My name is: Amit Kumar Singh
My GD/PI was on 10th July, 2017 at Baroda House, Lucknow at 9:30 AM. On that day, it was raining heavy. So, one of my friend booked a cab for me. It was my first GD/PI in any public-sector bank, but I was very excited to give my GD/PI. I wore black coat, black pant, white shirt and black tie. I thanked to god, my parents, friends and teachers. Before entering, i touched the feet of Baroda House. First process is document verification. After that, i allotted serial N.O. 12. I was in second group. There were 8 students in each group. I was really amazed after knowing that 2 students were absent in each group.

Group Discussion

At 11:30 AM, one of the madam instructed us to stand by serial No. wise. Then we entered into GD room.  The topic given to us was: ” Is it ethical for doctors to go for a strike or not”. They gave 2 minutes to write. After that they rang a bell, I initiate the GD. I discussed with groups, not with panel. Though it was difficult to address the group because everyone was sitting in a straight line. I discussed both advantages & disadvantages. I listened very carefully what others said about the topic. At the end, I gave conclusion and said thank you to panel. Then, everyone said thank you and asked us to proceed and leave the GD room. I was satisfied with GD. Some senior students said that you rock the GD and surely you will get the highest marks among all, probably 45marks out of 50.
