IIFT PI Experience 1:

19/2/2020 Delhi

Percentile: 98.26

No documents verified, only ID card checked

WAT Topic – For the powerful, crimes are those committed by others (300 words)

GD Topic – Will ai take away jobs from the workforce?
– I’ve never seen a worse GD in my life. After the compulsory one minute per person, it turned into pure chaos. 6-7 people shouting at a time, the loudest one clearly having no idea about the topic and talking about climate change and initial coin offerings. GD moderators said that they’ll throw all of us out due to the sheer chaos, but that wasn’t enough to deter people from valuing quality over quantity and volume. Through and through atrocious. I didn’t participate in the madness and was asked to conclude. I summarised the few understandable points and concluded that we didn’t address the important questions during our ‘discussion’ to arrive at an answer.
