I had my gd/pi on 17th… reached TAPMI at 8.00. Got my panel no and room no from the computer kept the entrance of the admin block. Then had the presentation at 8.30 in the audi. My panel had 20 members.. our GD topic was “India’s unity in diversity is just a slogan”.. thank god it was not fish market.. only a few of them were shouting and annoying the group.. otherwise it went well…. then had the impromptu speech..
some of the topics in my panel were
favourite business icon
favourite travel story
is lalu a management guru..
i got “tears for other troubles dry quickly”
then they collected the copies of all the marksheets,catscore card,workex certi,reco letter.
the first few had the faculty interview in the morning and the rest in the afternoon… those who had their faculty interview in the morning had their directors interview on the same day.
for most of them it lasted for 15-20 mins… mine was short only 5-10 mins… i’m a fresher… so it was mostly technical…..they asked me about my favourite subject.. then kept questioning me on it.. some of the general questions were…why mba and not mech..
how did you like manipal..and some current affairs related questions.
I had the directors interview after lunch..
jus basic questions… why low cat score, why mba,what other calls..just before the Directors Interview was asked to write an essay on “where do you see yourself 5 years after an MBA”… and that ended my tapmi gd/pi.
