which make most of the students nervous about the exam:
1.Non-native speakers can’t get a band 9 on IELTS
2.I have to keep practicing tests to improve my score
3.I need to learn long lists of vocabulary to be successful
4.They make the IELTS test too hard so overseas students can’t get into university
5.If I don’t understand the examiner in the speaking test, I will get a low band
6.If I take the test in my country, I will get a better score
7.The examiner is looking at the clock in the speaking test so I must be very boring
All these are just myths and have nothing to do with the actual exam. It will be really helpful for the students if they just concentrate on the exam rather than getting worried for something which ain’t true.
Learning often gets frustrating especially when you are working for something and giving it your alone! But, when you have someone with whom you can discuss things, someone you can ask your doubts and clear them off, learning can be fun ! The simple saying goes – alone we can do so little; together we can learn so much.
But, it is also true, that learning with peers who do not hold the similar values as yours could be a bit frustrating! There can nothing be more wrong than wasting your time with people who have nothing to offer you or are rather wasting your time!
Well, although it is always your choice, we are her to tell you that learning in group is always fun. You can apply knowledge as individuals to be successful in life and remember, in life you always get what you believe you deserve. So, prepare for the best and believe that you deserve nothing but the best..
You must be having a goal. A desire. A wish to live a better life. To prove yourself what you are capable of. They say you dream it and half the work is done. Remember, you are not alone. There are millions of people around the world who are dreaming, but then have you seen millions of successful people? No!! It is because some people dream , while others work hard to make their dreams reality! So, if you have a dream, what are you waiting for??
Get started today by applying yourself towards the dreams and goals that are important to you. If learning English language is one of those, now is the time to begin with us.
Group Discussion are the first round of the selection and often known as mass elimination round. In recent times, group discussion have become more important part in the interviews and you will rarely find a job selection wherein you need not to clear the group discussion round.
However, most of the people fear GD’s. This is mostly because one does not know clearly what is the criteria on which you are being judged. Knowing the right things about Group Discussion can help in clearing the round and living your dreams.
WHAT ARE YOU JUDGED ON?
the way you communicate with others.
how you behave and interact with the group.
how open minded are you.
what is your level of clarity when putting forward your views.
Your analysis and subject knowledge.
Your attitude and confidence.
DO’S AND DON’T OF A GD
Maintain eye contact while speaking– You obviously need not to make eye contact with the judge, you are there to talk with the group, so maintain an eye contact with the group, but surely don’t stare.
Initiate the GD– Although, it is not the only thing that will help you but initiating the discussion will surely help in getting those extra marks.
Allow others to speak-A GD is about how well you speak but that does not mean that you will not allow others to speak at all. Even if you don’t agree with his/her thoughts do not snatch their chance to speak. Instead make some notes and clear the points when it’s your turn.
Speak Clearly- The company does not want a person who is very aggressive. They indeed want people who can be part of a team. So, be polite, speak in a language that is clear and understandable.
Make Sure The Discussion Is On Track – Often in GD’s people get over excited and start speaking on something that is way out of the topic. If you feel it is happening with the group, take initiative to bring the discussion on track.
Listen Carefully- What am I saying?? Listen, in GD? Well, yes. Pay attention while others are speaking. This will make coherent discussion and you will get involved in the group positively.
Speak Sensibly- Although you are judged on how you speak, make sure that when you do you speak sensible. There is no point of speaking for a long time and making no sense.
So, go on, give that GD and show people the real you.
