2. Case Study topics
Most of the companies recruiting for high-paying positions ( Eg - Deloitte, ITC, BPCL, ABG, Marico, etc.) deliver a Case Study in the Group Discussion round in place of asking a Generic Topic.
For the CA Freshers who have not really mastered a Case Study, this may be pretty overwhelming.
Try to swim against the Flow
Once Maruti Co. asked this topic "GST is beneficial for the economy" during their Campus placements. Everyone supported it stating that it is going to be enhancing the GDP, a friend of mine became the only one to oppose it announcing that its impact on the Economy is uncertain as of now. Even though she raised a liability, having taken an opposing view helped her rating better in the discussion.
Think out of the Box
The judges sitting out there are not professionals, they are the directors of the company who're being attentive to equal points. Feed them something different. In the ITC Case Study, we had been requested to pick out the best man or woman to lead a set of stranded passengers on a crashed flight. There was a commando among the passengers. Everyone had haunted the placement that the Pilot became skilled and could lead the institution. But a friend of mine, who was silent for the complete discussion, apart from that one minute where he keeps on argued that Commandos are given guerrilla training and are known for his or her passion, dedication & integrity and hence that commando became the proper man or woman to steer the institution.
Gain the eye of the Judges
In the BPCL Interview, we were given a case study on the manner to select ethics over your job security. Everyone was arguing at the same factors on a way to develop Goodwill & how Ethics in valued in CA Profession. During my very personal turn, I raised the practical components of the way that is frequently now no longer viable in the world, and that we have to look for a workaround that's both ethical & might additionally save my own job. The applicants sitting beside me lauded me after the interview for the points I had raised however when the results were out, I was rejected. The cause being I became the ultimate one to elevate my point & I became not loud enough for the judges to be attentive towards me. So gaining attention is very important irrespective of the amount of knowledge an individual has.
The primary applicants who get rejected are those who do not even speak. Take that braveness and acquire from your shell, and show your views on the matter.
