The prestigious IIM Lucknow is, without doubt, one of the most wanted colleges in the list of any MBA aspirant. With the new admission season about to kick start very soon, the institute has come up with an important alteration in the admission process. IIM-Lucknow has chosen to drop the Group Discussion (GD) round from its affirmation arrangement for the scholastic year 2016-18.
The GD has been as of now expelled from the affirmation process in 11 out of the 13 IIMs, barring the six new ones.
Administrator, affirmation, Ashutosh Sinha, said, "It was felt that the staff should be given additional time amid the meeting for better appraisal of the hopeful. The time spent in gathering discourse will now be all the more productively used amid the meeting."
As indicated by the IIM-L approach, the individual meeting (interview) will represent 40 marks and the composed capacity test will convey 10 marks. A year ago, 30 focuses were designated for individual meeting, and 10 each for composed capacity test and gathering examination.
In 2008, IIM-Ahmedabad split far from custom and supplanted GD with short expositions. In 2010, IIM-Bangalore supplanted GD with paper composing. In 2011, six IIMs-Rohtak, Raipur, Tiruchirapalli, Ranchi, Kashipur and Udaipur, supplanted it with a composed test.
GD has been utilized to test correspondence capacity, investigative abilities and coherent considering competitors. Yet, frequently just a couple hopefuls have the capacity to convey what needs be and more forceful competitors command the dialog. Competitors with solid administrative inclination essentially don't get an opportunity to talk. This technique makes it troublesome for both the members and the arbitrator, remarked an official.
