B- Schools now are widely employing extempore as a part of their selection process because of its impromptu nature, which mainly pulls out a candidate out of his/her comfort zone. Through extempore, they usually test the presence of mind, the flow of thought, speaking skills, and the way of presenting your ideas in a scenario with limited time and under pressure. So in order to do well in extempore below are a few points to be noted.
FMS Extempore Topics & Tips
Prepare well: Though extempore means no preparation however, for any provided topic take some time to structure your entire oration. Note down the key points quickly to elaborate them later.
Structure: The structure could be like an essay. An introduction then followed by the main content and a conclusion at the end. This helps to maintain the continuity of the speech.
Multi-dimensional approach: Try to take a neutral instance by assessing both the sides of the same topic. Speaking unilaterally does not create a positive impact.
Time Management: As time is short, manage it effectively. Practice regularly by keeping a timer.
Tone: The tone should be audible and engaging. Do not rush through the entire content, take pauses whenever required.
Making good use of the opportunity in Extempore depends upon the speaking style, thought process and the content. Extempore speech is used as a very distinguishing feature of FMS Delhi selection process, the weightage to extempore is 5% on a scale of 100 and scoring full 5 is not difficult also. Final Merit List of selected candidates would be released by FMS Delhi immediately after the final selection round is over in April 2019.
