SBI Associates PO Interview Experience from Hyderabad

Hi friends, I am Abhinay Vishwanath.I did my B Tech in Mechanical engg . I had my SBI Associates PO GD/PI at SBIRD, Hyderabad on February 26, 2015. Panel no 1 and the time was 8 AM.

Sorry for the delay as I could have posted sooner coz I'm very lazy :p

Here goes my Experience:
The document verification was very strict. It started at 8 AM and was completed at around 10:30 AM. Those who are yet to attend the interview plz carry all the originals. A beautiful girl candidate from my panel forgot to get one or two originals and she was grilled based on that. Felt bad for her. A guy brought his PC instead of his OD . He too was grilled. Finally no worries for them as they were instructed to write a letter to the AGM and were allowed for the GD/PI.

There were about 14 candidates and 5 panel members in the GD.

GD topic : Should the government invest more on Higher education institutes like the IITs or on Primary& Secondary education?

We were given 2 min to think abt d topic, 2 min for each candidate and 15 min for open discussion.
I had a lot of ideas on the topic but could give only 3-4 points. I was the 2nd to speak. Remember the beautiful girl I was talking about? She was the 1st to speak. Almost everyone was repetitive . A VH candidate who was in our panel was very refined in conveying his thoughts and was outstanding in the GD. I learnt from him as my points were good but disorderly and I gave my viewpoints in less than a min.He utilised the 2 min.

Finally, the Interview:
The same people in GD were present for interview and they were the Panel Head(P), Lady(L), Males M1, M2, M3

F:    Y did u fail SBI clerk but qualify in POs?(IBPS,IBPS RRB,SBI Asso)

M2: Mobile & Internet Banking  difference
Me: told
M2:Priority sector lending means?
Me: told in own words
M2: r u happy with d answer?
Me: no,sir
He laughed,I too laughed

Finally, M3: so,Football is ur hobby? Who won d Fb WC 2014?
Me: Germany sir.
M3: No it s not

Me: Manufacturing & Health sectors sir
M3:In defence?
Me: yes,sir

P,M1,M3 were looking  suspiciously at me throughout my interview. F was preoccupied writing something . I guess my answers seemed rude to them and another reason could be my laughter (controlled) while answering a few ques.
Still, a very good experience.
Sorry for the bulky review coz I wanted to share my whole exp.
Thanks guys :D
