The GD group is chosen by random.. So u'll find ur self among strangers.
I'll advise u to familiarise urselves in the 10-15 minutes u get before u
enter the room. Actually there are groups of 10 people each. And most of
them were not speaking much. Ours was more calm and peaceful group. All of
us were for the topic and 4 of us got thru. Don't worry cause 3/4 of those
who didn't..were too shy to speak..So almost all who spoke freely & made
valid points got thru.
Our topic was does private colleges give better education than govt colleges
some other topics were, mobile ph. ban on colleges, dresscode at job,
reverse brain drain etc. but ur not given choices..the moderator gives u
they selected 94 out of 220 for technicals. I cleared this one also.

whts use of mechanical engineers for us..etc
