SBI PO 2018 GD/GE/Interview Experience: Vansh Bhatia
Time: 8:30 AM
I reached late at 8:45 due to some conveyance issue. Despite being late the staff was very cordial. Document verification was done. After that, we were ascorted to the GE room. Basic instructions were given & then our moderators retired GM & retired AGM arrived. Instead of telling the procedure. They ask us the procedure & then add their views on it. They clearly mentioned language is not a barrier. We can discuss in either English or Hindi. It is a test of how we work cordially in a group.
GD topic- *Increasing number of Cars- Sign of prosperity or Problem*
We were given 5 minutes to jot down our points. In the panel, there was no girl. All the members were very cordial. All except one were of a view that it's a problem & we went little out of the topic & started talking about solutions which was correctly pointed by our moderator. But he praised us & told he haven't seen a such discussion in a long time. No quarrel, no fish market all were good. I couldn't get a chance to add much to the topic & speaked just once. Moderators gived us 5 mins break & then prioritisation started. We were clearly told it is a test of our ability to convince others.
GE topic- *Ill effects of Social Media*
We have to arrange them in the order of severity. Most severe one should be ranked one but & so on.
We had a very good discussion. Despite many differences in the opinion, the santity of the discussion was maintained throughout. I redeemed my GD thing in GE & participated in it multiple times. Moderators praised us & one of them added his views too & gave the example of Bill Clinton's ex gf & white house intern Monica Lewisky. She gave a very strong speech on body shaming at a Tedx event & he adviced us to watch that.
Interview started soon after that. I was given number 9 so my turn came much later. We were given English & Hindi newspapers to read & some refreshments. Before my turn, I listened *Kar Har Maidan Fateh* to ease myself. So finally my turn came. Their were 5 male & 1 female. I greeted them individually starting with Mam. Chairman asked me to sit & started.
