These days, with lot of focus on Group Discussion and Personal Interview (GDPI) for admission into various programmes, especially MBA, a debate is burning out that whether Group Discussion should be eliminated from placement process.
Many reasons are being given in favour of mass elimination of GD. For instance, it has been said that GDs do not let a candidate’s actual caliber to come out as everybody just focus on keeping himself/herself forward with their arguments due to which many times a little shy person with adequate technical knowledge lags behind. It has also been said that a person’s true talent, whether it is technical knowledge or communication skills, etc, come out in Personal Interview (PI) so there is, as such, no need for GDs to be conducted.
