Step_1- Document Verification
As you enter the hall booked by SPJIMR Mumbai, you will meet students there from their SP Jain who are taking care of the verification process and also conducting Psychometric Test and WAT.
They will give you a form to fill in your details such as grad marks and list of achievements docs you are submitting(any five).
Documents you need to bring-
After registration you will be divided into groups by them.
Step_2- Psychometric Test + WAT (in a span of 30 min)
Psychometric Test(10 questions in two section)
It will consist of questions like do you lie, do you think luck played a role in your life, do you show emotions etc.
On the first sheet you will have to tick marks on options like occassionaly, very often, often, never, always.
In next two sheet you will have to choose any three questions from each section and explain why you choose the answer you marked.
WAT- The topic in my case was “How do you motivate yourself to finish a task when no deadline is given?” Explain in 300 words.
After 30 mins is completed, the students conducting will take your sheets and ask you to wait.
After that you will be divided in groups of 5-6
You will be taken to another hall for #Group Interview Round-1. This is dreading as it is eliminatory in nature.
However in my experience SPJIMR faculties are best when it comes to easing your pressure out.
Group_Interview_Round_1(3 panelists- 1 male + 2 female)
This round will question you on
You may be questioned on current scenario relating to your field.What is happening around.Your views.Suggestions.
#Kindly do Budget and Monetary Policy and Economic survey of that sort released recently
Know about GDP, fiscal defecit, its implications, formula if any.
My first round interview took as long as 30-45 min. Everyone in the panel was asked further on their answer. So know where you want to take the interviewer.
After Round 1 gets over you will be asked to wait. Meanwhile you can have snacks (jo ki gale ke niche utrega nahi jb tal result nahi aa jata hai)..:p
The student conducting WAT/Test will come and announce result. Pehle darayega phir sahi result batata hai maza lene ke liye.
#Group_Interview_Round_2( 2 male panelists- 1 finance + 1 HR)
The students selected after Round 1 will now go to a room where another panel of professors and most probably an HR will be there. Questions in this round will be ultra-chilled. They will ease you out.
Questions that was asked to us were-
Questions may also come to you as an extension of what other people are answering. so listen carefully as you may be asked what is your views on what he/she said.
Tip- Go through SPJIMR site and know about the institute.
And be honest and keep a happy face.
After Round 2 is over, you will be given Pen drive and asked to leave.
