For Group Discussion, they divided us into groups of 10, gave us a topic, and we had to discuss for 20 minutes. At the end of the it, the instructor would select 1 person who should summarize the entire discussion.
For Personal Interview, They made us fill up a form, and then generally asked us about our answers which we had given. Questions include : Strengths/ weaknesses, career goals, about being transferred to another location etc.
Moreover, I was also asked about the type of books i read and current affairs. They also go through the resume in detail and asked about extra-curricular activities. Well, i am glad that i made it. As for the experience, i feel, any one can make it. The only thing that should be kept in mind is, i guess, one should be prepared. I don't mean that one has to do extensive preparation, but just brushing up of important topics in maths, revising concepts of C, learnt earlier should be enough. As for GD/PI, confidence is important.
