IBPS PO V Interview ExperienceI reached the venue at 7:30 AM. 5-6 Candidates were already present and document verification was going on. Document verification went smoothly. The officers were very cooperative. I felt contented and jovial.
After that, a ma’am instructed us to go to the 6th floor where GD/GE was to be conducted. In the GD room, 2 officers were present. I was overwhelmed seeing their attire and personality. First of all, they congratulated us for getting up to this stage.Then they gave instructions and norms of GD/GE.
GD TOPIC: The personal relationship has edge over digital relationship and vice versa in banking.
