Topics for GD, WAT and Essay Writing

Jan 28, 2014 16:08 IST

    Prepare for Group Discussions, Essay writing and WAT topics for selection in the MBA college of your choice.

    Mostly IIMs have replaced group discussions with a Written Ability Test (WAT) to make their selection procedure more efficient.

    As a debate on this decision could run for a day long, it is important to understand what they look for from a candidate in these written tests so that you can figure out a few topics and practice.


    The topics for Group discussions can also remain the same as only the format you present your information differs from a written test that is verbal. As a matter of fact, GD is not being completely overhauled by all the IIMs altogether.

    Possible categories:

    The following are the possible broad categories that you can expect a topic be given to write on.

    • Business
    • Social
    • Ethics
    • Politics
    • Personal
    • Technology

    Example questions:

    One example question on each category would be as mentioned below:

    • Facebook population by 2017
    • A common man as a national leader
    • Wearable technology
    • What is ‘success’ in your own terms?
    • Genetically Modified food (GMF)
    • Women safety in New Delhi and rest of the world
    • Twitter v Facebook
