Topics for GD, WAT and Essay Writing
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.
The following are the possible broad categories that you can expect a topic be given to write on.
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
