Keep on reading to understand the experience of Niyati Yaduvendu.

Hi, I am Niyati from Delhi. I had my SBI PO GE & PI on 4th September 2017, SBI LHO- Delhi. My reporting time was 12 Noon. I reached there at 11.30 AM. As soon as I reached the venue my biometric was done and after that, my documents got verified and after that lunch was provided. Around 2.30 PM we were taken to the GD room.

GD Topic- “NEET – Bane or Boon? “

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.

We were given 20 mins to speak. It was an open discussion and it went smoothly and a consensus was formed. After that second was the Prioritisation based Group Exercise. The panel members briefed us about the exercise. 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. It also went for 20 mins. The panel member asked us to speak individually about our rating. A consensus was formed on that too.

After that, we were taken into a room and were asked to wait for our interview turn. Around 4.30 PM my turn came. I entered the room, there was a panel of 5 members (4M+1F).
