Dear Readers,
SBI PO is the most sought after recruitment process by banking aspirants. Group Exercise and Personal Interview is the final round (Phase-III) in SBI PO 2017 Recruitment. Last year SBI introduced a prioritisation based group exercise which is also being conducted this year in the Group Discussion Round. Interview experiences can help you get an insight of the difficulty level, environment and types of questions being asked in SBI PO 2017 Group Exercise and Interview Round. Keep on reading to understand the experience of Mohd Imran. 

After reaching the venue they conducted document verification which was followed by the start of Group Discussion.

GD Topic- “Demonetisation is good or bad for Indian economy”

Each candidate spoke on the above-mentioned topic for few minutes after which the group came to a conclusion. Group Discussion can be a tensed situation for some, but with confidence and clarity of thought, one can easily score in this phase. It is important to maintain the decorum of the session and avoid being too loud. Put forth your views and opinions firmly best backed by figures or facts and also let your fellow group members voice their opinions.

Group Exercise – If you want to buy a car what is your Preference. 

Group Exercise is performed after the discussion. In this group exercise candidates were given a set of few qualities/ attributes/ traits/ parameters which they had to prioritize according to their understanding of the topic/ situation/ thinking ability.

Personal Interview

The panel contains 4 males and 1 female.

  • How to increase employment 
  • How to diminish unemployment 
  • What are exams are u given 
  • Which is the largest state area wise 
  • Name the smallest state and a newly made state
  • Tell us about your home town 
  • Which book is written by munnauar rana 
  • Cross question if u become traffic inspector how u decrease traffic
  • Do you listen to poetry, recite one. 
  • How stamp vendor makes profit

This was my overall experience, I fumbled in 2 question and enjoying in reciting a poem; they smiled when I recited the shayri. I tried to maintain eye contact but forgot to wish while leaving.

So this was my first interview and it was ‘okay’, I was feeling nervous little bit. They asked no questions from bank academics and current affairs they only counter attacked with a question from what I answered. This certainly a pressure test to check how much stress you can absorb.
