Keep on reading to understand the experience of Vinu. 

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

GD Topic- “NEET Boon or Bane”

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.

Two observers were there and about 5 mins were given for noting down the points. We students had a good discussion. It lasted for about 15 mins.

Group Exercise – Listing down Moral Values in order of 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.

Values like Honesty, Truth, Altruism, Knowledge etc (10 values) were given. We had to arrange them in order of preference and also explain our point of view. 5 mins were given for noting down the points and giving them preference ranks and then 15 mins were for discussion.
(However we students could not reach a consensus here). After the discussion was over, the observers told us its okay that no consensus was achieved.

Personal Interview

After an hour or so, we were called in for the PI. For Interview there were total 5 panel Members. 3 males (1 was GM) and two Females.
