Hello and welcome to exampundit. Here is an Interview Experience & GE/GD Experience of SBI PO 2017 shared by Chandrakant.

I attended SBI PO GD/PI at Lucknow center on 09/09/2017. After reaching the venue they conducted biometrics followed by document verification which was followed by the start of Group Discussion.

GD Topic- “Is allowing FDI in retail sector good or bad for India?”

Gave 5 minutes for writing points.gave 20 min for discussion.(group had 8 candidates). Group Discussion can be a tensed situation for some, but with confidence and clarity of thought, one can easily score in this phase. It is important to maintain the decorum of the session and avoid being too loud. Put forth your views and opinions firmly best backed by figures or facts and also let your fellow group members voice their opinions.

Group Exercise – What are the qualities you would like to have in your spouse?

Group Exercise is performed after the discussion. In this group, exercise candidates were given a set of few qualities/ attributes/ traits/ parameters which they had to prioritize according to their understanding of the topic/ situation/ thinking ability.

  • Good looks
  • Pleasing personality
  • Education
  • Family background
  • Employment
  • Adjusting with new family
  • Dowry
  • Rich family
