    My GD was started at 10:05 AM after the docs verification.

    there were 13 candidates in my group..... the topic was ARE TV CHANNELS FOOLING US BY MEANS OF TV SHOWS?

    we were given 2 minutes to think and jot it down on paper.

    then each candidate was given 2 minutes to speak individually ....(EXTEMPORE)

    then an open discussion was help for 10 minutes....only 5 of us were talking of them were sitting quietly .....dont be that person....speak ....and do not gentle and also listen very carefully to others and reply to them in a polite manner.

    then my interview was taken at 10:50 AM

    there were 5 panelist ....left to right lady- L1 male1- M1 male2(head)-M2 male3-M3 and male4-M4

    first of all the head panelist started asking question....

    M2- you are from WB how come u are in UP?

    Me- i told them about my fathers job and his transfer before my birth.

    M2- why didn't you join sports like your father?

    Me- cuz i mentioned in the last answer that he was a sports person they asked me this.

    M3- what was your previous job?

    Me- i was working in BEL on contract basis.

    M2- what is TEV? something in technology.

    never heard of it...completely denied for this question....M2 asked me... u r a must be knowing it...i said no sir...sorry i can not remember...

    then they said thank you...u may leave of luck.

    so that was my total interview experince...i am still forgetting 2 questions...which were from current news....

    it was a rapid fire interview....all these questions were asked and answered in 10 minutes only....i was out in 11th minute....the girl waiting for her turn after me , even asked me...didn't they asked you any question??? i was surprised and also happy at that time that i didn't took the pressure of fast questions.

    so friends i would only suggest you not to mug up all the answers and try to be genuine if you dont recall or know the answer.

    they are just checking your patience, communication and a lil pressure testing :P

    so go and take your interview as a u'll be more confident.
