Crossing the pond by leaping over the floated stones is a high task. But how does it feel when you are just away one more floating stone to reach the safe land. It’s very hard to give up and loose over the last floating stone. This is how a banking aspirant feels when he is just away with the interview for the final placement. So, the interview phase should not be given less importance. In the revamped banking selection procedure, the phase of interview consists of Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview. Most of the aspirants feel anxious about the topics that would be given in the GD. Through this article we discuss the important Group Discussion topics for Bank exam 2020.
Why the Group Discussion?
Group discussion is done in most of the recruitment process nowadays. Candidates may be able mug up all they have studied in the answer sheet. Apart from the knowledge (IQ) socialising character and emotional quotient (EQ) also needs to be analysed. Whether the person knows the relevant events happening around him, whether he has an opinion about the events, whether he analyses the consequences of the events policies and decisions, whether he has a voice to speak over regarding that, whether he has good communication and convincing skills, whether he has good listening skills, whether he has good tolerative skills all these are analysed in a group discussion. SO, it is very important to perform well at a group discussion.
The nightmare of banking aspirants is regarding the subject which would be given in a group discussion. Nobody can give you the topics of your upcoming group discussion at your hands in advance. But analysing the structure of a group discussion and its aim you can somewhat predict the possible topics that would have been given to you.
Peculiarities of the GD Subject
Not a biased subject
The topic of the GD won’t be biased. Biased in the sense you cannot say a no or yes all of a sudden after hearing the subject. You cannot objectively treat the topic of the GD. You cannot take a stand regarding the subject all of a sudden after you hear the subject. You cannot claim 100% right regarding your ideas about the topic. Because the topic would be highly subjective. It is made subjective because the recruiters insist that the ideas you share should have content of your own opinion in that. So, go for some subjective topic and analyse it from various perspectives.
Having current relevance
The topic will be having current relevance in it. Because the recruiters want to measure whether your knowledge is confined to the age-old printed books only. Whether you are aware of the recent developments happening in the world is often evaluated in a GD. To predict the possible topics for a GD it’s good to have touch with the newspaper and events happening around us.
Not constrained to Banking and economics
This is one of the major misconceptions regarding the topic of GD for many aspirants. The knowledge level of the candidate in the matter of banking and economics have already been analysed through the preliminary and mains examination. They need not to be confined to banking and economics subjects for GD. They can choose any possible current event rather than having ant importance in the banking sector giving a GD topic. If any of the banking or economics topics is having high current influence in the society its good to give more weight to it.
Demanding Your Critical thinking
The topic will be set in such a way that it will demand your critical thinking on the topic. This is the major aim of the GD itself. So, don’t make the topic generalise but make it specific on any area like its consequences, pros and cons.
