FOUR ways to add value to a GD:

  1. Share your reasoning first
  2. Summarize
  3. Body language
  4. Make eye contact with your group members while you speak.

FOUR ways you will add value to a GD:

  • By laying out the structure, which facilitates discussion.
  • By introducing new points, statistics or other information on the topic.
  • By giving examples to illustrate clearly certain aspects.
  1. Share your reasoning first
  • Do not express your stand initially. Note down major issues and remember not to jump to conclusions.
  • Begin to speak only after examining all the issues.
  • Remember you are being evaluated on how you think and not what you think.
  1. Summarize
  • Summarize the GD briefly, highlighting just the main points discussed. The reason why participants are asked to write summary.
  • Use telegraphic English, do not uses full sentences or you won’t have time to complete the summary.
  1. Body language
  • Do not be too conscious of your body
  • Avoid any irritating gestures like the following:
  • Do not slouch in your chair, stretch your legs out. Fidget or keep shaking your legs, play with your pen or any other object and do not point others.
  • Sit upright and alert and use normal gestures.
  • Do not block your face with the other people alongside you; this will block your words.
  • In short, avoid a few glaring errors, and then do not think too much about body language.
  1. Make eye contact with your group members while you speak.
  • Look at everyone in the group when you speak.
  • Avoid staring at just one person.
  • Avoid looking down or up while speaking.
  • Similarly, while listening to someone else, look directly at him and not on the ground or at the ceiling.
