Group Discussion:
Based on case studies, the group discussions are mainly conducted to judge applicants on their analytical thinking, approach to hypothetical business situations and the ability to break down complex problems to arrive at simple solutions.

Psychometric Profiling:
A questionnaire - based psychometric tool that assesses the typical or preferred behaviour of individuals in work settings. Applicants are required to complete the questionnaire before they appear for the interview. This tool gives us a better understanding of the applicant and is not used for elimination of applicants.

Personal Interview:
All applicants are expected to go through the interview round, which is the final step in the selection process.


How to do well in the aptitude tests:

Since the tests are based on numeric and verbal ability, it is advisable that applicants practice basic mathematics and verbal comprehension skills.

Before the actual test, you will be given practice examples to try - make sure you ask questions if anything is unclear at this stage.

How to do well in Interviews:

Punctuality is important, never be late on the big day. Try to reach 30 min before the actual schedule. This reflects your seriousness for your application.

Assemble all necessary papers like resume, mark-sheets etc, one day prior to the interview.

You must prepare yourself practically for the interview and gather information that may be useful in the interview.

Brushing up on your academics, past work experience is certainly helpful.

Professional dressing always helps create a good impression.

During interview always be enthusiastic. Focus on your positive achievements and views.

Maintain eye contact with everyone on the panel and not just the panelist who asked the question.
