ISSB Group Discussion

ISSB Group Discussion Topics and Tips

   When candidates have been divided into groups and introduced to the GTO, The GTO gathers them into a room which has a spherical sitting. This room is the room of group discussion. The first task of the GTO is the group discussion. This is one of the most important task as the candidate creates his first impression to the GTO on the basis of Group Discussion Task.  As the first impression is the last impression, the candidate should be careful in his choice of words and his viewpoints.  First of all, before starting a group discussion, every candidate sitting in the circle introduces himself to his other mates about his educational qualifications, the city of residence, hobbies etc. Sometimes the Group Testing Officer or the GTO gives one compulsory topic to the candidate to talk upon whereas in other cases he gives a couple of topics. The subject which is agreed by majority is accepted by the Group Testing Officer.

What you have to do in Group Discussion?


  • Firstly you explain the topic.
  • Highlight its key issues
  • You can either be in favor of the topic or against it. The thing which is observed is how you build up your logic.
  • Give proper solution for the issue.

Important Notice for Do’s and Dont’s

  • Sit in a proper and mannered way. You don’t have to be casual.
  • Listen to the GTO’s instructions carefully. Don’t break the rules set by GTO.
  • The candidate is required to select that topic on which positive ideas can be shared. Don’t go for aggressive topics. All these things depict your mental processing.
  • Do not look at the GTO. Imagine he is absent during your discussion.
  • Don’t look here and there when giving your viewpoints. Always look in the eyes and face of other candidate and try to assess their emotions.
  • IT IS ONE OF THE KEY ADVANTAGES IF YOU SPEAK AFTER LISTENING TO 5-6 OR EVEN MORE CANDIDATES. TAKING THE INITIATIVE CAN LEAD YOU IN TROUBLE. AVOID IT.
  • Don’t take too much time in giving your viewpoint. It might irritate the GTO. Le the others speak too!
  • Don’t be rigid with your ideas. If someone criticizes you, don’t be enraged, rather accept it with open-mindedness.

In this test self-confidence as well as the behavior of the candidate is examined by G.T.O. The group discussion or group discussion task has assumed great importance.   In the Group Testing Officer Task or G.T.O Task, the candidate creates the first impression on the Group Testing Officer (G.T.O) and other members of his group.  The good performance of the candidate in the task of group discussion creates a good impression on the Group Testing Officer, and enrich his role in subsequent group tasks. As first impression is the last impression, hence the candidate must try his best to show his worth in group discussion. During group discussion all candidates are arranged to sit in a circle.  In the beginning every candidate introduces himself, like which city he belongs to, his educational qualifications, hobbies etc. Thereafter, the group discussions exercise begins. In this task, usually, two subjects are read out to the candidates and they are required to choose one of them for the sake of discussion.

Nishan e Haider Holders Names & Pictures – HEROES OF PAKISTAN

NISHAN-E-HAIDER  (URDU: نشان حیدر‎ )  (abbreviated as "NH") is PAKISTAN'S highest military gallantry award. "Nishan-e-Haider" literally means "Emblem of the Lion" in the Urdu language.

Aakra __اکرا  #AAKRA 
About three thousand years ago there was a city named “ Aakra ” near Bannu. This ancient city was full of life and had its own civilization. People of Bannu believe that due to the sins and misdeeds of the people of Aakra, Almighty ALLAH destroyed the city. It has been said that Almighty ALLAH poured stones instead of water from sky. As a result of this “rain of stones” whole of the city was destroyed.

Some say that it was destroyed by volcanic lava. There are others who think that some ancient invader might have looted the city and killed its population. One of them may be true or perhaps all of them untrue. It is the Almighty ALLAH who knows better.

The ruins of Aakra are present at a distance of a few kilometers from Bannu in Baraat, a village on 250 feet high hill. They have encircled an area of 133 acre.

According to the belief of local Hindus, Baraat was the founder of Aakra, the brother of Ram chandar. But that's wrong Because Ram Chandar and Barat we…

History of the KASHMIR conflict

A brief history of the Kashmir conflict
The Kashmir dispute dates from 1947. The partition of the Indian sub-continent along religious lines led to the formation of India and Pakistan. However, there remained the problem of over 650 states, run by princes, existing within the two newly independent countries. In theory, these princely states had the option of deciding which country to join, or of remaining independent. In practice, the restive population of each province proved decisive. The people had been fighting for freedom from British rule, and with their struggle about to bear fruit they were not willing to let the princes fill the vacuum. Although many princes wanted to be "independent" (which would have meant hereditary monarchies and no hope for democracy) they had to succumb to their people's protests which turned violent in many provinces. Because of its location, Kashmir could choose to join either India or Pakistan. Maharaja Hari Singh, the ruler of Kashmir…

گناہ کبیرہ

بخاری و مسلم کی ایک حدیث میں ہے کہ: رسول کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ کبیرہ گناہوں میں بھی جو سب سے بڑے ہیں تمہیں ان سے باخبر کرتا ہوں، وہ تین ہیں، اللہ تعالی کے ساتھ کسی مخلوق کو شریک ساجھی ٹھہرانا، ماں باپ کی نافرمانی اور جھوٹی گواہی دینا یا جھوٹ بولنا۔
