G.D. is the best way to share feelings opinions and ideas.
But in an interview a group discussion is used to see the performance of a candidate when under stress or when dealing in a project or even at least proposing an idea for project.
coming to the point!!
A person should and must know how to talk or behave in a group and rules to be followed in a group discussion.
yeah!! surprise there are rules for attending or participating in a group discussion.
lets see them.


  • Always raise hand before speaking. Avoid false starts, do not present wrong data or facts or deviate from topic.
  • Quality of thought: You can score a point if you speak less but make a valid point that is acceptable to the group.
  • Avoid giving a negative impression.
  • Try to emerge as a leader as in, voice your opinion in a striking manner while at the same time listen to others carefully and also include their views in a respected manner. Leadership quality is a must-have ingredient for GD.
  •   It is really a good way to summarize the given subject and then raise the questions based upon the topic. Sometimes it is also a good idea to agree how the discussion will happen and form rules. 1st person may ask permission of group that everyone will be given chance to speak once in line and then general discussion starts. 
  •  In the time provided (if any) to think and organize, think critically, analyse thoroughly and then try to arrive on the conclusions. Irrelevant points and facts should be avoided instead stick to the point with objectivity.


  •  One to one discussion or interactions with any of the members in the group instead make yourself involved with everyone present.
  •  Pointing fingers, shouting or any such kind of impolite behavior.
  • Don’t use any slang's or abusive language.
  •  Avoid negative body languages like shaking legs, yawning, drumming table, looking here and there or swinging pen or pencils etc.
