R S aggarawal is gud bt read only relevant topics.
many of my friends told dat its the most difficult level of whole selection procedure.. but i'm saying dis is d most simplest of ol.. wen v asked him dat sir is dat comm skills which u c... he said i'm juss checking whether u can say somthing or not on any topic... our group was of 11... he said "i'm havin very bad exp wid last batch" so v feared dat v r out today.... but he was really a nice guy... he said chose a topic so I suggested RESERVATION nd ol of us accepted d topic (don't argue much)...
he said our discussion vill b like debate so he divided us into 2.. half wd speak in favr nd others .. against d topic... I was d person 2 start (for) i said ya! reservation shd b dere bt not on caste nd religion basis but it shd b on economic basis... dere was no hustle bustle in our batch... som were very poor at English but still he was giving chance 2 evry1... nd last he pointed at 4 people nd asked dem 2 speak nd rest shd b silent... frnds belive it or not 2-3 ppl were dere who can't even speak 1 line correctly.... but 2 d surprise of ol he selected all of us ... i.e. 11 out of 11.. he said i'm giving chance to 3 of u.. perform better in interview... so conclusion is dat our batch was quite decent nd accepted each other's thought so v all were selected... NOT ON D BASIS OF COMM. SKILLS i've seen 2-3 of our college's girls who were very good at English nd knowledge .. everything got rejected b'coz moderator said tht dey were too aggressive...
other topics: BRAIN-DRAIN, WOMEN EMPOWERMENT, IMPORTANCE OF END, ROLE OF MEDIA.... no need of preparing much 4 GD.. its very simple u juss remain quite.. bt not totally.. speak juss twice or thrice in betwn.. d u r selected...
After GD people were divided.. som were having Technical som were having HR... they gave prefernce 2 girls first ol girls were finished wid Technical & HR by 5 pm in d evng.. our GD finished at 10 nd Interview started at 5pm. so b prepared to get bored, frustrated, tired, hungry..evrything...
