Six New IIMs to Scrap GD Process

The six new IIMs namely IIM Raipur, IIM Rohtak, IIM Ranchi, IIM Udaipur, IIM Tiruchirappalli and IIM Kashipur will eliminate the group discussion round by replacing with a written analysis test. The test will be common for all the six new IIMs as reported by Live Mint. However the old IIMs will continue using the GD process as one of the selection criteria.

Group Discussion sometimes could be skewed students who have good command over English can dominate a student who has knowledge in the subject. The later fails to impress the panelist by staying mum if he can’t make up words and few students could never express themselves as they are naturally not aggressive at talking, being aggressive not necessarily means an intelligent student.

The proposal to eliminate GD in the six new IIMs was confirmed by IIM, Raipur director when interviewed by Live Mint.

What do you think? Are Group Discussion a best way to measure the candidature of students to IIMs? Leave your thoughts!

    I feel it is a wise decision of not having GD round. It all depends on the topic given by the panelist to students. A single topic cannot judge a student intelligence.

    i think its a best decision ……. becoz no one can measure the intelligence of any student by any single topic…
