Keep on reading to understand the experience of Preeti. 

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

GD Topic- National Eligibility Entrance Test

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.
