I have written ibsat well,and being called on first day for gd/pi ( is the interview date matters based on Ibsat score?)my gd performance is average as I took 2 chances to speak and PI was pretty good. will I be able to get Hyderabad campus?
One thing you should learn before doing MBA course is to be positive at all situation doesn't matter how difficult it is, So I suggest you to be positive for your result. What my opinion is about the selection of candidate through GD-PI process is that selection weightage is more for PI than GD, Telling about my experience I have been rejected to all those college where my interview was horrible like NIA, But I have got selected in Welingkar despite of giving average GD because of a good personal interview.
So don't take tension be positive for your result.
I hope the above information is beneficial for you.
All the best.
