Ans: Group Discussion is an important part of the selection procedure for admission to IIMs. Candidates are generally divided into groups of 8-10 during a GD. The students are asked to put forward their views on a given topic. This round assesses the ability of a candidate to communicate their idea clearly to a group. It also helps to shortlist candidates who can understand group dynamics and are good team players. The topics for group discussion, again, can be varied for different IIMs and the discussion time too.
