Strict Don’ts of a GD

There has been enough material on the subject - ‘What to do in a GD?’. Its now time for a few don’ts. And as a matter of fact, its more important to remember don’ts rather than do’s.

- Do not get into arguments with people, remember you are there to make effective points, do not waste time on futile arguments that do not contribute to the topic under discussion.

- Making yourself heard is important but do not try to hog the lime-light all the time, evaluate the worth of what you are saying, or you may simply make points that are irrelevant or were better left unsaid.

- Do not act patronising with your fellow group members, it could backfire.

- Do not make use of gestures excessively as you may come across as aggressive, learn to toe the line between assertive and aggressive.

- Do not slouch but seat yourself comfortably, awkward posture could indicate nervousness or discomfort with your position in the group.

- Most of all, belief in your own ability to remain poised in any situation will allow you to sail through.

- Do not fidget or act restless.

- Do not stare at the floor or out of the window, you may come across as uninterested or inattentive.

- Try not to look at the Panel members during the discussion.
