Welingkar GDPI experiences.

GDPI Experience 1
Group Discussion Room
I had an amazing set of panelist.
GD Topic : Branding is nothing, its all about the product

The Group Discussion started with a bell and there wasn’t any specific time allotted for people to prepare for the topic but they were told to speak whenever they wish to speak everyone without creating any nuisance in the room spoke really well and kept their point infront of the panelist. Immediately after that I was called for Personal Interview.

The personal Interview panelist consisted 2people (Male &Female) and their first word before starting the interview was “RELAX” then they asked me certain questions regarding my reasons for doing an MBA, Then they asked me to introduce myself to them later the conversation was directed towards My job experience and later they asked me the current exchange rate for USD/INR and the reason for it falling down the interview got over after this.

Creativity Test:
Topic: MAGIC (worst word for me at that time)
But I was prepared for the worst which helped me a lot.

After a wait of Half an hour we were taken to the registration room where we were allotted rooms for our Group Discussion and other Registration requirements then we were taken to the Group Discussion room.

When I entered I saw 2 elderly madam whose face expression looked as if they were bored of this process after so many interviews.

GD Topic : Indians perform better as Individuals or in a Group..

GDPI Experience 3
WE experience-19th May,9:00 am

I woke up at 8:50 and it takes 20 mins from my place to reach WE School,Was there by 9.30 but was still allowed to give the Interviews without any issue,then we were separated into groups and after a good wait for about 30-40 minutes where they were explaining about their courses like Retail,healthcare, rural development,etc , they requested if someone has to ask any questions but no one was willing to ask any, they even said +5 marks to anyone who asks, this made a few people. ask questions. (no marks were added)
Then we were taken to a GD room were a group of about 10-12 people were & 2 topics were given 1 had an option to select any one of them, the topic was ‘What is more important for a country Like India-Industrial development or Environment protection’
I started the topic and tried to structure, after me a girl spoke with quite good confidence and stated her points later a student started contradicting every statement in order to come in the attention of the panelist I found him to be a bit aggressive as he started bombarding with negative contradiction by proving peoples statistics to be wrong.The panelist consisted of an olderly lady and disinterested man who was literally trying ton sleep.

After that came the Personal interview round the person who went before me took good 20-30 mins which made me a bit scared as to why is he taking so long. The panelist consisted of 2 professions which I have named P1 and P2 and the conversations Started
