When you are narrating a story, never look at assessors in the discussion. The candidate needs to be in cool and have a positive attitude. When you are narrating a point, you should give a strong reason for it. When the person is narrating the story all the others should listen and must involve in discussion. Candidates who are not having good answers in your group, then you should  help them in a good manner. When other candidates giving a point, don't argue with him. If you don't have a proper answer, then you should not ask other candidate anything. Be positive in your body language and your tone should be clear and confident.
