Top 5 Tips for Effective Answers

Personal Interview or PI is the last and very crucial stage which you must clear before you are likely to be declared successful for getting admission in any MBA Institute. 
Following are the top 5 tips which you can work and develop to attain confidence before you face PI: 
  • Keep informative & short answers 

Be prepared to offer a 4 to 6 line answer to every question. This is enough to share a few thoughts and to stimulate further discussion if the interviewer desires. Try to avoid simple 'yes' and 'no' answers or responding in monosyllables. Show interest in the questions and sincere thought in your responses.
  • Don’t sound self-centered

Cite your achievements, but demonstrate an appropriate level of humility. When discussing professional accomplishments, acknowledge the help and support of your teammates, mentors, teachers, parents and role models.
  • Only Positive answers will be appreciated

Accentuate the positive and don't dwell on the weaknesses in your background or application. Don't give any indication that you aren't willing and able to meet the rigors of business school. Your job on the interview is to convince them you are the right candidate: they won't believe it if you don't sound sure of yourself.
  • Your tone must be balanced 

You’ll certainly be asked a few stressor questions that are designed to test your ability to handle conflict. Don't get defensive. Your tone can be revealed in both the words you choose and your voice. Practice responding to difficult questions with a friend before the big day. It will help.
  • Listening attentively & responding carefully will ease you at PI 

Although you'll be stressed during the interview, this isn't acceptable that you ask the panel to repeat their question every now and then. It simply confirms that you weren't listening.
 

Top of all; remember that PI is the two way communication.
