SRMJEEM GD and PI Process

Group Discussion and Personal Interview
SRMJEEM test-qualified candidates who meet the cut-offs released by SRM University are first called for the group discussion/case discussion round where a group of candidates are given a particular topic to have a healthy and relevant discussion and put forth their views and opinions.
Succeeding candidates are further called for a personal interview with the panel members of SRM University where the candidates have a one-to-one interaction. The members of the panel ask questions and interact with the candidates at a deeper level to check their depth of knowledge.
The group discussion and personal interviews are conducted to assess the candidate’s traits and soft skills for future managerial roles. The group/case discussion and personal interview enable the examination panel to understand the candidate’s communication skills, articulation of thought process, critical thinking and evaluation, general awareness, interaction and leadership abilities, etc.
The candidates are judged and scored solely based on their performance. Only those candidates who qualify for all rounds of the selection process are called for a counselling session wherein the candidates have to get their documents verified and make the admission fee payment of the specified amount to confirm their seat at SRM University.
