Group Discussion (G.D) is one of the common selection procedures used for evaluation and selection of candidates for job interviews usually after the initial written examination.

Generally G.D is conducted in the following manner
1. A group, usually consisting of 8 to 10 students, is arranged to sit in a semicircle or full circle. Each participant in the group is given a number. During discussion the participant shall address a person only by the given number and not by the name.

2. The topic for discussion is usually suggested by evaluator or sometimes the group may be asked to choose a topic for discussion. The topic may or may not have relevance to the job or to the candidate’s area of specialization.

3. The time limit for a discussion is usually 30 minutes.

4. It is expected that everyone in the group participates in the discussion by presenting his/her views and ideas on the topic. If any candidate has not participated in the discussion, the person is generally given an opportunity to speak on the topic towards the end.

5. Finally, one of the candidates in the group is expected to summarize and present the group’s viewpoint on the topic at the end. If this is not forthcoming from any member of the group, one of the participants in the group may be asked to summarize. 

CHARACTERISTICS EVALUATED IN A G.D:
1. Content
2. Communication skills
3. Group dynamics
4. Leadership

Content: Content is a combination of knowledge and the ability to create logical ideas on the basis of that knowledge.

Communication skills: Communication is a two-way process, and the role of the listener is critical. Unless you listen, the points you make may not fit in with points made by others. Besides listening, you also need to have the ability to:

• Express your ideas in a clear and concise manner.
• Build on others' points.
• Sum up the discussion made by the entire group.

Group dynamics: As mentioned before, a GD is a formal peer group situation and tests your behavior as well as your influence on the group. In addition, you need to have:

• Willingness to listen and discuss various points of view. Do not take strong views in the beginning itself; try and analyze the problems of a situation.  Learn to disagree politely, if required. In fact, it is far better to put forward your point of view without specifically saying 'I disagree' or 'You're wrong'.
• Show appreciation for good points made by others. You can make a positive contribution by agreeing to and expanding an argument made by someone else.
• Size the opportunity to make a summary near the end or, even better, a part summary.

Leadership: One of the most common misconceptions about leadership is that it is all about controlling the group. However, for the GDs we are talking about, leadership is all about giving direction to the group in terms of content. It is about initiating the discussion and suggesting a path on which the group can continue the discussion. A good leader is one who allows others to express their views and channels the discussion to a probable decision or conclusion on the given topic. 

THE FOLLOWING ARE NEGATIVE POINTS IN A G.D:
• Dominating nature.
• Disagreeing beyond reason.
• Being irrelevant.
• Losing temper.
• Impatient attitude.
• Poor communication skills.
• Ignorance about the topic given.
• Non-participation.
