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 a candidate who appeared for SBI PO Interview Round. 

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

GD Topic- “Should government invest more in opening new IITs/IIMs or should it make primary education as a priority.”

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.

The discussion went smoothly and all were in consensus that it is more important to invest on primary education first.
