NIFT Group Discussion

All those up for the PG courses like the M.Des, M.F.Tech and M.F.M programs have to go through the Case Study based Group Discussion process. The GD is held for approximately about 15 to 20 minutes. Discussion is on a particular topic given to a group of about 8-10 candidates, on which a panel of experts assesses the candidates on various parameters, like:

  • Knowledge of the given topic
  • Conceptual Clarity
  • Contributions made during the discussion
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Skill to generate unique ideas
  • Leadership qualities
  • Focus on Problem-solving
  • Communication skills
  • Result-oriented approach

What happens in the NIFT Group Discussion?

Usually, a group of 8 to 10 candidates are made without assigning any group leader. After that, the group is given a topic, a Case study to be precise. Then they ask the group to come up with an effective solution for the problems. Mean while a panel will observe the proceedings and evaluate each candidate.

How to Prepare for NIFT Group Discussion?

Though there are no such rules while you are preparing for the NIFT GD, but you may follow a few guidelines which might be helpful. Equip yourself with information. You cannot predict the topics. Therefore, you should aware of the topics related to:

Current Affairs

You have to be really thorough with your current affairs. You have to keep track of the happenings around the world. Latest developments, it may even relate to your career field, social issues or crisis effecting our lives, etc.

Topics related to historic importance

Being aware of our country’s historic past events, and basic idea about prominent historic events of other countries. This may not be directly in the topic, but it will help you to cite references as and when necessary.

Art, literature and even sports and politics

As these topics have a broad arena and a lot of goings-on, therefore, you must know the basics, like what is popular, about the leaders in these respective fields, the pivotal role of the government in these fields, etc.

Why do most candidates fail to do well in the Group Discussion?

There are three basic reasons why usually most candidates fail to perform well in the Group Discussion:

  1. The Fear of Public Speaking is a common factor, where candidates are hesitant to put forth their views. This may happen again for two reasons; either their lack of knowledge in the topic or due to lack of confidence.
  2. The fear of being criticized in a way or hesitant due to lack of potential logic to debate on the points, or lack of points to back up the arguments placed.
  3. Lack of proper command of the language, at times, is also a major issue faced by the candidates in effectively putting forth their views, resulting in a reluctant attitude.

7 Useful Steps to follow during the NIFT Group Discussion:

  1. Understanding the Topic:

    It is very important to have clarity of the topic. Clear any doubts regarding the topic immediately.
  2. Gather your Thoughts precisely:

    It is important while you are gathering your thoughts, that you should make precise points and must not deviate from the topic.
  3. Effective Communication of your views:

    Enhancing your communication skills will take you a long way to effectively put forth your views.
  4. Initiating the Group Discussion:

    When you take to initiating the group discussion, you will provide a structure and plan in which the discussion will proceed. If you act wisely and are able to pull it through well, it will surely represent your leadership qualities.
  5. Choosing the points correctly:

    When you are speaking on the topic, it is important that you select your points so as to convey the depth of your knowledge in the topic.
  6. Understand the Dynamics in the group:

    Taking the initiative will be easier said than done, as every candidate will try to do the same. Therefore, follow the discussion keenly and try pitching in with unique points. Be a good listener by giving everyone a chance to speak. Your points should be relevant and unique at the same time.
  7. Logic-based Conclusion:

    When it is time to conclude the discussion, sum up the relevant points with substantial logic to back them up. Sort them as in a problem-solving action plan.
